Kevin Slack is cool.
see all you freaks this weekend.
Did a little detective work.
Dan Bassini shot a picture of Kitty Pryde using a building Ghost pissed on once as a backdrop. Cool!
See you in FL.
One hell of a review.

I’m from Buffalo, a city that to most is unforgiving, harsh, and downright shitty; our sports teams are perennial losers, our politicians are corrupt at worst and incompetent at best. However, if living in my lovely rust belt city has taught me anything, it’s that the worst places produce the best music. I’m not one to make insulting comments about strangers’ cities, but if the new split from Banquets and Nightmares for a Week is any indicator, Kingston, NY and Jersey City, NJ must be downright awful.
When it comes to honest punk rock soaked in sweet melodies and the best Americana has to offer, I’d be hard pressed to find two better bands than Banquets and Nightmares for a Week. There is something inherently classic and nostalgic about both groups, which makes every listen of this split more enduring than the last.
The record opens with a delicate piano line whose intricacies are so gossamer-like in nature that Nightmares for a Week could have easily lifted it from a long-lost music box. However, moments later the band rips full force into the thick of the song, with “Canadian Tuxedo” taking shape as a momentous and rollicking audio blitz. The roaring electric nature of “Canadian Tuxedo” soon shifts into the acoustic aesthetic so critical to Nightmares for a Week’s signature sound; with both “Dead Will Stay” and “Boiceville Inn” tapping in to Bill Manley’s precise plucking.
Headed up to Allston in about a month.
