Summer begins...now.

That is, when the shows all go into reruns, the bad reality TV crops up, and the summer concert season is upon us. A great time to be alive, basically.

Aside from most assuredly seeing the Gossip for a 6th (or 7th?) time next Thursday, I just learned that the Mountain Goats are playing Bottom of the Hill two nights in late June, which I am so down for it isn't funny. Even if no one will go with me.

A handful of Bumbershoot acts have been announced, including Devo, Son Volt, Digable Planets, and the Decemberists, so that's not a bad showing. Full lineup in mid-June, I guess, so I can decide how much of it I need to pay for then. But I'll start hunting for good fares into Seattle Labor Day weekend and possibly take off that Friday.

I don't know how I managed to avoid this for so long, but I finally obtained and listened to a full Dinosaur Jr. record. Wow, that is some happy shit. I mean, it made me happy, not that it sounds cheerful or anything. The new Mountain Goats is also lovely.

Someone will come with, right?

Come with to where? Bumbershoot? of course! I'll be there all 4 days, as usual. :P

Check out what Bill Maher has to say about reality TV.

Hey Thomas, link? I don't generally go poking around for Bill Maher's opinions, but if you lead the way, I'll take a look.

Don't take my flip remark about "bad summer reality TV" as blanket disregard of the genre, anyway. It's a love-hate relationship, mostly hate, but definite cultural interest.

I would go with you too! Unfortunately I’m going alone on Tuesday the 28th @ the modified so I’m in the same boat as you.
