Bjork is a goddess. Put your hands up y’all it’s Rude Boy Benjamin in the house! I’m proud to say that I will be covering a few concerts in the next couple weeks exclusively on the WMXM blog. First off, this friday I’ll be at the Pitchfork Festival. Highlights will include; tUne-Yards, Battles, Curren$y, Das Racist, and headlining ANIMAL COLLECTIVE! Check back early next week for reviews, pictures, etc.
Second up: The Decemberists at The Aragon Ballroom on July 25th. This will be my second Decemberists show. Some tragedy hit the band a few weeks ago, their keyboard/accordion player Jenny Conlee was diagnosed with breast cancer. In support, all her band mates shaved their heads. We all wish Jenny the best, and I will be glad to report back on how their live version of The King Is Dead sounds. Look for that!
Third up: I will be seeing Minnesota natives (woot woot) Solid Gold play at the Metro on the 29th. If you haven’t heard their rock meets electro brand of awesomeness then you should check it out. Start with their latest EP Synchronize.
Peace and Rock,
