Just read this in the paper today:

"The San Francisco-based hardcore-punk outfit Karate High School visits the Middle East Upstairs tonight as part of a tour to support its album "Arcade Rock," which has Nintendo-inspired cover art. Punknews.org had this to say about the disc: 'Despite being yet another band pulling the whole sing/scream dynamic, they're both done well, and done tastefully.'"

I have no idea who this band is, but thought that was pretty cool. Also, editors of one of the biggest newspapers in the country should know that album titles are in italics.

EDIT: Looks like Anchors wrote the review, too bad they didn't put your name!

How's Boston treating you?

Also, it's too bad they didn't get a quote for a good band.

I'm loving it so far. Great people, but terrible food. I miss NYC/NJ bagels and pizza. I love having a ton of venues that are 5-10 minutes away by walking or bus/train.

This band played a show for me in SF and boy were they terrible. The CD isn't totally terrible though.

Keep trying ticketmaster. The middle east sometimes releases extra tickets on the day of the show. This one kid I know got one last night even after being shut out all day. Same thing happened to me with Boris about two weeks ago. I'm going tonight by the way.

Sweet, I just got one off of Craigslist. It's kind of ironic because the kid can't go because he's studying for the LSAT on Saturday.

Boston muppers come find me. I'm wearing a red YMCA soccer t-shirt

I was there for a while too. I was the guy with umm...a beard, glasses and a hat?

ok, I looked like pretty much everyone else there.
