If you consider the Chili Peppers to be new, then you sure don't listen to much new music. :D


Fair enough, but I said "new" becuase they still put out new music nowadays.

I'm not as big of a RHCP fan as your typical music-lover but I do enjoy some of their stuff, mostly early stuff, and I think By The Way was their last great album and an underrated one at that.

Didn't care for what they were trying to do on Stadium Arcadium and I skipped out seeing them in town last year, despite that the Mars Volta were opening which probably would have been worth it itself.

Hey Shark, a bit off-topic, but where did you get the hat that's in your profile? I think it's really nice looking, but I can't find it anywhere on the web.

My avatar is a guy named Gregg Gillis who is a DJ/music producer under the moniker "Girl Talk". He is pretty popular in the indie world for mixing together all different kinds of music and has created remixes of songs by the likes of Grizzly Bear and Peter, Bjorn and John.

Anyway, he is from Pittsburgh and frequently wears Pirates hats during concerts/press shoots. This particular picture was from a promotional ad advertising his latest album "Night Ripper". I am not the biggest fan of his or anything, but just figured it would make for a cool/different avatar for a Pirates forum.

Ah the Junot soundtrack. I believe Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes" is a highlight there if I am not mistaken.

The new Black Keys record is very solid all the way around.

60's/70's icon Leon Russell wrote "Superstar". Rita Coolidge's version on the Mad Dogs and Englishmen soundtrack easily eclipses the one by Karen and Dick. Speaking of whom, I have a great Karen Carpenter T shirt but it is a bit tasteless.

Tasteless is what makes greatness.

At this point my list is looking something like this ...

The Gutter Twins - Saturnalia
Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
The Whigs - Mission Control
REM - Accelerate
The Black Keys - Attack & Release
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - Real Emotional Trahs
Black Mountain - In The Future

Not a very promising list so far, though the year is still VERY young. The last two were actually pretty average and have a slim chance of making the actual year-end list.

I wouldn't mind seeing REM but the closest they come here on their current tour is Chicago.

That's the closest to me, too (we both live in Ohio if I recall correctly), and it is almost roadtrip-worthy, especially due to the two OUTSTANDING openers on this tour, The National and Modest Mouse. I've seen the two of them by themselves multiple times and they both put on great shows, and quite honestly two if the best bands going today. That on top of REM, a band I've never seen and just came out with a great album this year to boot ... hmm, wonder if I can still get tickets.

I cant agree more...I hate that show, but if for sh*ts and giggles if the tryout is close this summer I'm trying out and will be performing a Lou Reed song, while wearing a t-shirt with some local stores websites printed on it for the 15 minutes of fame...

I saw Lou Reed at the Stanley Theater 1974. Great show. Awful opener....Hall and Oates.

PSA - "X" is in town at The Rex tomorrow night (5/23) if you're looking for something to do. All originals and still kicking ass. I'm going to run it past my wife, for $23/ticket, you can't go wrong!
