If You’re Looking For Trouble, I Can Offer You A Wide Selection

Jonathan has a wonderful rundown of stuff to see and hear. But let’s add a couple of things to that list. Like tonight’s Punk rock reading, at Arise! bookstore and resource center. And, after a winterlong hiatus, my friend’s band, Signal to Trust, will be playing a whirlwind weekend of shows with their new drummer. I plan to catch them Sunday night, at The Dinkytowner. Also worth listening to…last week Defective Yeti posted this bit of pure genius, Business Time, as performed by Flight of the Conchords…who describe themselves as “New Zealand’s 4th most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo.” Brilliant.
Bonus: Something I could see if I didn’t have such exquisitely crappy timing…there’s another advance screening of Serenity happening next week, but I missed the boat. Again. Hopefully there’s something to the rumors…that it might be released before September 30th after all.
Plus: Say it ain’t so…in sad news, I hear that the fabulous Sister Fun is closing. This came on the heels of Let it Be Records closing its doors yesterday. I hope this isn’t a sign of the viability of independent businesses in the Twin Cities.
