i feel a little pressured to post even though i don't have much to say at this point. i suppose i could register my distaste for the idea that Tilly and the Wall appeared on the revamped 90210 this week. how did a band that has practically defined the low-key DIY aesthetic for the past few years become involved in something this soulless? the answer is here. i guess it's cute and i'm probably just an ass. no matter, their new, untitled album is easily one of the best of the year so far, and i'll still be in front of the stage with a giant grin next weekend when they play Monolith. speaking of, why the shit isn't Neko Case listed on Saturday's line-up? the date isn't listed on her official site either. oh well, there will still be plenty of swell bands to check out both days. if you haven't gotten your tickets yet, both single and 2 day passes seem to be going for a reasonable price on craigslist.
