We’re experiencing the usual after-Thanksgiving lull. Ain’t a damn thing going on musicwise the past couple of days.

So let me take this moment to remind you about tomorrow night’s free show at The Slowdown. Tasty booze-maker Sailor Jerry is sponsoring The King Khan BBQ Show along with Digital Leather. It’s friggin’ free, but you have to RSVP at the Sailor Jerry website, here. Sign your ass up. 21+ only. I wonder if they’ll be giving out free booze? Not likely.

What else…

You know, sometimes I wonder what I’m doing writing about music as I enter my “more advanced years.” And then I hear about the Rolling Stones’ shows in London. Jagger is 69 years old, Wyman, 76. And according to this write-ups, they can still rip it up on stage. Makes me wonder what I’ll be doing when I’m 76. Will I still be writing about indie music? Probably.

What else…

Look for a feature about The Millions online here this week (also in this week’s column in The Reader), plus some extra stuff that didn’t make it into the column. The reunion show is this Saturday at The Bourbon Theatre in Lincoln. Get your tickets while you can. Poison Fish, the band’s rarities CD (released under the name Millions NE, just like Ladyfinger), became available today on iTunes. Check it out.

That is all, for now…
