I'm seeing Dawes tonight in NYC. They're one of my favorite bands right now.

Unfortunately they won't be opening for Elvis at Summer Stage. Damn curfew.

Elvis mispronounces it: "Muh". As per wiki it's "mɛ" (rhymes with "dress"). I don't think it's such a bad word. Ditto nerd.

Did anyone ever see the film the song came from? I remember it being quite a big deal at the time. Being labelled a British 'brat pack' style movie. I remember it not being very good. Just looking at the wiki page its surprising how many well known British actors are in it. Especially if you watch ...

Re: Elvis & Imposters play Beacon, NYC 11/6

Always nice to hear Elvis with the band, and especially with Steve, who's so important to the IB sound. Good audience, a bit tame, but that's better than too rowdy. The female singers add a nice layer of sound. The new arrangement of Tears Before Bedtime is excellent. The segue from Shot With His Ow...
