40: Call Me A Dummy...

Another good show. An extra little note about The Offcutts that I forgot to mention in the show. The new album is streaming at their myspace page and you should definitely check it out, if only for the rockin' cover of Pat Benatar's "Hit Me With Your Best Shot."

Also, there's a slight glitch in the Fake track. The glitch occurs 35 minutes and 19 seconds into the podcast. This was a glitch in the original file that I didn't discover until recording time and because it isn't too annoying, I'm leaving it in. But, minor as it is, I thought you should still be prepared for it.

The Offcutts "Fearless Fighters" (from What Happened Don't Lie, 2007)
The Redding Brothers "Chauvet" (from The Physics of Immortality, 2007)

36: Just Another Bull In A China Shop

Good Friday and Happy Easter everyone. I just realized this week that next Friday will be the six month mark for this podcast. I'm not planning anything special, of course, just noting that it kind of snuck up on me. As noted at the end of the show, Exit Clov will be playing The Black Cat in DC on April 11. I also meant to mention that, if you're in Carrboro, NC, they'll be playing Cat's Cradle tomorrow night. But I forgot to write it down before the show and I have a crappy memory.

And, hey!, the new Fountains of Wayne CD came out on Tuesday. Everyone agrees it's a top notch disc (except some guy at Pitchfork). I'm especially digging "'92 Suburu."

Dime No. 36: Just Another Bull In A China Shop

Paper Or Plastic "West Virginia" (from Best of Luck to Cody James!; 2006)
Mumpsy "64 Colors" (from 3 People; 2007)

New Feature

The blog now has a nifty little button near the bottom of the column at left labeled "Google Calendar." Adding this public calendar to your Google Calendar will allow you to see when certain artists that have been played on the podcast will be appearing near you.

If you're an artist or group that's been played on the show and would like your dates listed, email a list or link to a list to suitcase.full.of.dimes at gmail. Likewise if you'd prefer they not be displayed on the calendar, just drop me a line and I'll take 'em down.

Going to see these people live is what it's all about. Support your favorite artists by going to see them live and buying their CDs at the shows.

Oops Update: Seems I forgot to save the template changes. All better now.
