...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

French Kicks at the Rex

(last week, I know.  we're behind.)

Nice show.  I highly recommend their recent album Swimming.  And I guess the comparisons to The Walkmen are fair, although I have to say I like these guys a bit better.  Unfortunately, Swimming is not available on vinyl, an issue they are apparently trying to address (with their label, I presume).  Friendly dudes, as well.
