Sure, we all know I'm excited about San Cisco in St Paul (10/21), but did you hear that Chaos Chaos is opening up the show?
They're Asy (Asya) and Chloe, who I saw them play as Smoosh when they were 14 and 12, respectively. I last heard from Asya on two songs off of God Help the Girl, and was wondering what she was up to.
Anyroad, they have a new S EP coming out October 16th - that's this Tuesday.
I don't have any other information or even tour dates, so I'll just leave with this old photograph of Smoosh from their appearance at the 7th Street Entry (6/8/2007):
Hank & Cupcakes are a duo from Tel Aviv, Israel. If you were wondering, the name is in reference to Charles "Hank" Bukowski and one of his real-life lovers "Cupcakes."
In celebration of their upcoming new EP, Ain't No Love, coming out October 22nd, they are heading out on tour

Is Myspace back? In a recent discussion with some friends, everyone hated it and was unforgiving to Myspace. My own personal Myspace story is that the website blocked me/would not let me log in because I had an old web browser.
Since Justin Timberlake took over, he's trying to bring Myspace back to what they were previously known for: music. So, Myspace and Denon Headphones are sponsoring "Myspace Feel the Music," which is a new DJ concert series. It's taking place in New York (10/20), San Francisco (11/01), and Los Angeles (11/17).
