Loose Record (BBQ Saturday)

I write for a music news site called Loose Record; it's a really informative, well-designed site and you should check it out to read some good reviews of shows and albums, interviews with bands, previews of upcoming shows, and other fun stuff to distract yourself with at work.

the editor of loose record, jay belin, is my favorite man-about-town. he affects this sort of crass, faux-sleazy persona, but he's actually one of the nicest people you will ever meet and cute by virute of his bear-like quality. i want to hug him every time i see him. plus, he deserves props for plugging some great local bands on his blog. two favorites that i share with him are The Big Sleep – LOUD, droning, fearless psych-rock – and Sam Champion – authentic, fuzzy, sprawling rock & roll that often inspires Pavement comparisons.

Come celebrate Loose Record's one-year anniversary at a BBQ at Union Pool this Saturday, June 10th, at 2pm. Love Is Laughter, The Picture, and Shade are all playing, and it'll only cost you 3 bucks. A sweet deal for sure.
