Blind Pilot- The Story I Heard

















The end.

In a shocking announcement that rocked the indie rock world, The Decemberists have selected Purple Stuff, a DJ Screw tribute band, as the opening act for their summer tour.

"We felt our fans needed to be challenged," explained Decemberists front man Colin Meloy. "And Purple Stuff represents where it's at in 2009."

Just kidding.

Fellow Portland band Blind Pilot have been tapped to support The Decemberists' forthcoming tour. They specialize in the kind of hyper-articulate art-rock that appeals to The Decemberists' discriminating fans. "The Story I Heard" is a typically smart example from the band's excellent 2008 album 3 Rounds and a Sound.

The evocative video for "Go On Say It" perfectly captures Blind Pilot's sensibility.

Saturday is Record Store Day. In my town, Vinyl Renaissance is hosting in-stores by The Classmen and Lee Dresser of The Krazy Kats.

I like Tech N9ne's new video for "Red Nose".

"Hyper-articulate art rock." I like that description. Made me chuckle. Though, I think I probably prefer "inarticulate art rock."

Thanks, Paul. I like both types of music- smart and dumb. In fact, I might catch The Rich Boys (gloriously stoopid trash rock) after Kris Kristofferson's concert tonight.

Don't get me wrong. I like smart music too. I'm just not so sure about "hyper-articulate." That's a bit intimidating.

"The Kansas City Civic Orchestra performs Sunday at The Folly Theater."

The link to the orchestra's site gives somewhat sketchy info about this concert, and the Folly's site doesn't list it at all. This makes me reluctant to drive downtown for a concert that may or may not exist.

I feel you, Paul.

I just called KC Civic at 913/642-8117, Big Steve. A woman assured me that their Sunday performance at The Folly is definitely on.
