whats up people? its been a pretty boring week around these parts, at least for me. my wife, on the other hand, has been given the opportunity to create a munu for a new restaurant opening up in ventura, ca. her best friend’s sister is the owner of a couple of joints in the area and is looking for a chef, which my wife is, from chicago to open and create a menu for his new space. so, its kinda exciting but i am not going to hold my breathe. i have always wanted to live in california, and this might just be our opportunity.
i am totally backlogged on bands that i need to write about. sadly, i have found little inspriation/energy to write much of any substance as of late. one band that i think are quite interesting is the soft complex, straight outta d.c. the soft complex features ex members of burning airlines – ex j robbins band, phaser and trixie delicious, the later bands i have never heard of, but that doesnt mean much. from the one track i have heard, they have a guitar sound kinda reminiscent of early day duran duran – which i dig. i am interested in hearing the whole ep, entitled barcelona.
here is a recent iron and wine show live from the fabulous city of milwaukee, recorded live at the pabst theatre on 2.08.07. the show features 9 brand spankin new songs.
