Do I have your attention?

The Cavs have the whole basketball world's attention right now with their play this playoffs. Wednesday they pulled of thrilling 86-84 victory in Detroit to take a 3-2 lead in the series.Tonight the whole city is gearing up for what we hope is a celebration tonight after we watch The Cavs here in town @ the Q dispatch of the Detroit Pistons and advance to Eastern Conference Finals to face the Miami Heat. It just last week @ this time that The Cavs were trailing 0-2 in this series, amazing how much things in change in one week. Regardless of what happens tonight The Cavs will be playing someone (better not be Detroit) Sunday afternoon @ 2pm. Later that day if you are looking for a show here in town, The Charltans UK are playing @ The House of Blues with The Blood Arm opening. I have been a fan of The Blood Arm since I first heard their catchy single "do I have your attention" back in 04.

The Blood Arm are a foursome who hail from L.A. they first popped up back in 04 when Alex Kapronos of Franz Ferdinand started to sing their praises. He liked them so much he had them open for Franz Ferdinand on few of their dates on that tour. Since then they have toured with Maximo Park, We Are Scientists, Sons and Daughters and The Hot Hot Heat. They put out one record Bomb Romantics and their second album is due this year. I think their sound definitely brings to mind the early strokes. While NME says that " they're essentially James Brown fronting Talking Heads and singing The Fall songs".

Blood Arm? Are you kidding me. Why would you think it's cool to take a picture with everyone looking like they hang with Pete Doherty? I don't get it.
