Men Without Pants

Now that I have the ladies attention with the post title (tee hee)….

Dan, as always when he collaborate with folks, has come up with another unique name for the project: Men Without Pants. The album is said to have special guests including Sean Lennon, Pelle (lead singer of The Hives) and members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Mooney Suzuki and Cibo Matto, amongst others. A release date for Naturally is set for August 19th. Check out two songs “double life” & “and the girls go” from the highly anticipated new album below.  You likey?

Weird Wednesdays @ Alamo

After you’ve done the Blues on the Green thing, why not head on over to the Alamo downtown for Weird Wednesdays? This, as always, is also a free event put on by the cool kids at Alamo with things getting started at midnight. This weeks showing brings us The Female Bunch directed by Al Adamson in 1969. IMDB tags the show with “Women who live by their own rules… They dare to do what other women only dream about! Their law is the whip–their trademark the branding iron!” Read more on the Alamo Drafthouse website.

Blues On The Green

Blues on the Green goes down this evening starting at 7:30pm with Los Lonely Boys headlining the event. If you’ve never done the Blues thing, I’d suggest showing up early with a folding chair, a cooler of your favorite beverage & maybe some treats to snack on during the show. You don’t have to pay anything to get in but you will pay to park at Zilker…. so park somewhere else and walk. You can read more about Blues on the Green on the KGSR website.

Waterloo Video Closing

Your favorite video store in town, Waterloo Video, is closing its doors sometime in mid-august.  Sounds like they will be moving all the non-rental type videos into a newly remodeled Waterloo Record Store.  So that means Waterloo is officially out of the rental business.  Too bad.  Good news is, Video store closings = video store sales.  So pay your last respects to Waterloo video sometime in the next month and stock up on the cheap stuff.

Lackthereof

Lackthereof, side project of Menomena drummer Danny Seim, has a new song for you off forthcoming album Your Anchor due out on July 22nd.
