Our Plans For The Weekend

This morning Kelly hoped on a a plane to The Emerald City to hang out with our friend Sarah.

While they are in the gateway to Alaska they are going to see their favorite M.I.L.F. on the first night of her 2009 Abnormally Attracted to Sin Tour

This weekend while they are doing that I will be heading to the Cleveland Ingenuity festival 2009 to see all of this

3 good things that start with M!

Mayer Hawthorne - Just Ain't Gonna Work Out He is the latest addition to the fine fine roster of soul and funk artists on The Stones Throw label. Mayer is a 29 year old white cat originally from Ann Arbor Michigan who can deliver that smooth soul falsetto just like Curtis Mayfield. He has is a true soul revivalist who has caught the ear of striker of gold producer extraordinaire Mark Ronson.

Mumm-Ra She's Got You High Last night we were to see an advanced screening of (500) Days of Summer.The story itself being about a love that isn't quit what it seems is nothing new but I think most can relate to feeling that way. What was really great about the film was the music which really helped tell the story. It is going to make a great soundtrack to drive to. This song was probably the only in the film we did not know. Mumm-Ra (besides being the villain who battled the Thunder Cats) are a quintet from the seaside in England who make some sweet melodic pop tunes in the vein of Good Shoes or The Maccabees.

Mannequin Men - Massage (Day Trotter) These Chicago based indie punk rockers are coming to town on Saturday Night to play a show at the Beachland with Puerto Rican Garage rockers Davila 666. Mannequin Men just did a sweet Day Trotter session this week. Speaking of sweet postings each week the guys are posting a mixed tape each Monday with a specific confined theme. This weeks theme is musicans who have written songs about other musicians. How can you go wrong with The Muslims, David Bowie, R Kelly and Pavement on the same mix?

Thanks for reminding me that ingenuity was this weekend! I very nearly missed another one of these. That asterisk gallery installation was pretty impressive, no?
