I easily could have written 2,500 words on Box Elders, but the paper just didn’t have the room. Such is life. Instead, this streamlined 1,000-word epic (which you can read here) covers the origins of the band, the sibling characteristics, the new album and the stage show. Read it, then get your tickets to tomorrow night’s CD release show at The Waiting Room featuring Hercules and The Goodnight Loving, all for a mere $7.

A reader pointed out on the webboard that I forgot to mention in yesterday’s column — where I talked about how bands from a number of labels, including Slumber Party Records, didn’t take part in the OEA showcase — that Thunder Power (which played the showcase) is actually on Slumber Party Records. Not only that, but Thunder Power has a new EP called And Everything After that just came out on the label that includes three songs that previously were only available on that hard-to-find split EP the band did with Alessi’s Ark. Check it out at slumberpartyrecords.com.
