Bangers & Mash

Hello from Dublin. I have heard two different versions of Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way” in the last hour. Willie Nelson is also a radio playlist staple hereabouts. Strange. Have some concert announcements.

The reconstituted Eric’s Trip will at the Mod Club on June 3. The Stills are at same venue on June 11 and Rob Dickinson, whose deluxe-ified Fresh Wine For The Horses will be out June 10, will grace the stage on June 18. And looking a little further ahead, Hot Chip are back for a show at the Kool Haus on September 30 – full tour dates at Pitchfork.

JAM is carrying an AP piece on DeVotchKa while NPR is streaming a complete show from DC for both them and tour opener Basia Bulat.

Kathleen Edwards talks to JAM about her new, hockey-powered video while NPR is streaming a World Cafe session.

Spinner interfaces with Duffy.

An Aquarium Drunkard interviews Patterson Hood of Drive-By Truckers.

Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab talks to CokeMachineGlow about their new album Chemical Chords. They’re at the Phoenix on October 8.

    Ha don’t know what radio station you’re stuck on! There’s only one remotely alternative radio station in Dublin, Phantom fm 105.2 and even they’re not great… It’s a good week to be in Dublin, there’s some great gigs on and the weathers not too bad either…

    Animal Collective cancelled in Dublin tonight… boo.

    Do you know of any other Eric’s Trip dates coming up? The only thing I can find is the Sub Pop 20th Birthday festival (which looks great)

    Also, are you aware AOL is publishing your stuff? What’s the deal there?

    Bangers and mash, yum! Enjoy Dublin it’s once place I have still yet to be…

    I found it very strange (and amusing) that the NYTimes can’t print the word "poo". Otherwise a great article – thanks for the link.

    Hope you had a smashing trip.
