well, what we got here are two bands, one that is one of america’s finest, american aquarium, and the other, baton rouge’s the rigs, has the potential to be, at least to these ears. they’re playing at the varsity here in baton rouge tomorrow night, and damn i couldnt be more excited. from a personal viewpoint, i couldnt think of a better show going on this year in baton rouge, unless of course guided by voices and pavement decided to tour together and play at mud and water, but until then this is where its at. btw, if you want to go to the show for free, all you gotta do is head on over to the rigs’ fb page and share the picture to enter to win.

couch by couchwest day 2 – 4 recap

Posted by gregor on Thursday, March 14th, 2013

oy vey! i need an intern, or we need an intern. someone like darren from seinfeld. this here site should be up and operational, much like the death star, within the next few days. everything is being re-uploaded, all 27,000 files of it and as you can imagine it’s taking a while. so here are some of my favorites from the past few days.

american aquarium "louisiana beauty queen" off live in raleigh

Posted by gregor on Monday, February 20th, 2012

admittedly, i was late the american aquarium party. ive said it before, and ill say it again, how the hell did this band put out 5 records before i finally heard of them and their record small town hymns – which ended up at #3 on my best of 2010 list. boggles the old noggin. i cant believe no one ever said “hey greg there’s this band you should check out cause they pretty much encompass everything you love about music, theyre called american aquarium.” nope never happened. another thing that annoys me is they tour relentlessly, i wont make up a number, but i know they are on the road more than 3/4 of any given year. i may be wrong with that, but not that far off, im sure.

american aquarium tonight in baton rouge at chelsea's cafe

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

well, aint this a kick in the balls. im fairly confident that i told my wife to get the 15th of november off so i can attend this show. in fact, i know i told her to get it off. seeing as the one that now makes the schedules it should have been a no-brainer, but alas this is my space-case wife and i have come to live with it. still, just a little pissed, i must admit. so yeah, they’re playing there tonight, and also are running a kicstarter campaign to help record and distribute their upcoming record entitled, burn.flicker.die. i will definitely be donating, and you should definitely too, cause these guys are definitely worth your money and time. no doubt one of my favorite bands playing right now.

american aquarium live at old town tavern, 9.20.08

Posted by gregor on Thursday, August 4th, 2011

last year sometime, american aquarium and their record, small town hymns, somehow and mysteriously came into my field of vision. i thought they were a “new” band but dammit if i hadnt been missing out since like 05, which is when i think they formed. shit, i think i even missed em when they stormed through new orleans last year. either way, said record ended up at #3 on best of 2010 list and really up until about a month or so ago, thats all of theirs i had listened to. well, all that has changed cause i have dug into their catalogue and its all full of awesome.

i cannot recommend digging into their catalogue enough. buy something via amazon or via their general store.
