Horrible weekend; The Faint on Kimmel tonight; a clarification and a mystery…

Category: Blog — @ 12:20 pm June 13, 2005

Ongoing health issues kept me from the shows this weekend. Nothing serious, just a lingering cold/flu-thing picked up in Ireland and sinus-related maladies. Sucks, because there were three shows I wanted to see, not the least of which was last night’s Mayday CD release show at Mick’s. Anyone who was there, feel free to give us a review on the webboard, which is now back up and running.

Our boys The Faint have their network debut tonight on the Jimmy Kimmel show, appearing with Andy Dick and VH1 personality Rachel Perry. I assume they’ll play either “I Disappear” or “Desperate Guys” (I hope it’s the latter). I’ve never watched Kimmel before. I remember him from the Ben Stein quiz show, though. Seems like a personable chap. It’ll be interesting to see how ABC stages The Faint and how well they’ll come off without their A/V display. There’s no question that network television exposure is a valuable thing for up-and-coming bands, but you gotta wonder just how valuable it really is these days with so many different chat shows going on at once. Kimmel appears to be on top of the second-tier that includes Craig Ferguson and Carson Daly. I suppose a good showing here could push them to Conan or Leno…

I feel the need to clarify recent comments made about The Good Life on this here blog. I didn’t say Cursive’s reemergence meant the end of The Good Life. I said we could be seeing the end of The Good Life as we’ve known it. Read into that statement what you will. Kasher already is on the record as saying The Good Life will be involved in his upcoming stage-play efforts… but what form The Good Life will take is the mystery…

FYI… believe the hype about the new Beck CD…
