Assorted news; Bombardment Society tonight

Category: Blog — @ 12:31 pm August 2, 2005

Last night was an Orenda Fink show at The Goofy Foot that I didn’t attend. Anyone who did, feel free to share your comments about the show. Tonight is Bombardment Society, Gnome Slaughterhouse and Goodbye Spoon at Sokol Underground. 9 p.m., $5. Cheap!

A few headlines from the net:

— I had mentioned to someone a few months ago that CBGB’s in NYC was in financial straits due to rent issues. They didn’t believe me. Well, here’s a BBC story that talks about fundraising efforts to keep the place open. The story even deciphers what CBGB UMFUG means.
— NME has a story about Mike Mogis flying to Stockholm to work on the new Concretes album. “While he has worked with non-Saddle Creek bands before, this marks the first time Mogis has left his studio to record in a European studio with a European band.” What’s the deal with that Omaha studio, Mike?
There is talk about an Omaha premiere for the new Saddle Creek DVD “Spend an Evening with Saddle Creek…” Billboard mentioned this in a July 7 article, but I’ve also heard talk about a premiere showing at the Dundee Theater sometime mid-month. More to come.
