Quiet week; love and hate on the Internet…

Category: Blog — @ 12:30 pm April 19, 2005

No feature tomorrow, and this week’s column will be a rehash of The Brothers’ show review I posted Sunday. And it also looks like a quiet week for shows, which means I’ll be focusing on CD reviews for the rest of the week. Anyway, here’s some Internet stuff for your perusal:

— I just discovered a rather negative review of Todd Grant’s Duffy’s show earlier this month (read it here). Looks like our friends at the Daily Nebraskan aren’t fans.

— Glancing at the SLAMOmaha calendar, looks like the folks in Shelterbelt are on a tour of some of the hardest hardcore polka cities in the country — Ames tonight, Cedar Falls tomorrow, Waukesha and Madison Thursday, Oshkosh Friday, Green Bay Saturday, Des Moines Sunday. Grab a brat for me, boys.

— They’re loving ol’ Conor down under. Here’s a review of the April 5 Prince of Wales show. “We love you Conor!”

Pitchfork dismembered the new Mars Black CD, giving it a 2.5 out of 10 (here). Ouch.

— And critical mentor Robert Christgau’s latest Consumer Guide went online at the Village Voice (here). He can’t get enough of those Rhymesayers artists.
