Should we make this a “ladies only” All-Star Jam? Nah, that wouldn’t be fair. Feel free to add whatever’s on your mind.

  1. Could I please get a pronunciation on “hrrundivbakshi”? When I read it in my head I hear what I used to sound like in the mornings back when I smoked.

    This is way, way off topic, but I have a question for Mr. Mod & any other Philly sports fans here. As you probably know, the A’s are wanting to get out of Oakland & move to San Jose for some time now, w/the Giants opposing the move. What I’m wondering is it feasible for the A’s to move back to Philly? I heard that the general NY-NJ area can support another team & I would think that the A’s could get some of the Yankees fan base in South Jersey. Sorry for being off topic, but I’m just curious.

    In a search for obscure fotos of pre-adenoidal rock stars, I somehow stumbled upon this site. I have no clue who these guys are, but every twisted path I follow through this site contains 100% awesomeness of the purest, weirdest form. HappinessStan, do you have any idea who these guys are? The movie links to the Subterraneans are particularly wonderful.

    Atlanta Rhythm Section drummer has died:

    As for female fronted things, played the 1st Pretenders album today, it’s a winner. Also lately been digging the “home” ep by Jenny O and also Sharon Van Etten’s album “Tramp.”

    Another random item – a short film (about 35m) called “‎”We Didn’t Get Famous” The Story of the Southern Music Underground, 1978-1990″

    Went to see Spiritualized last night – Jason Pierce sounded good despite his near death experiences. He had two female back up singers, who were well-endowed in the female fronted area, and a crazy good guitarist. I’m not the biggest Spiritualized fan (although Mr. Royale is) but I like the latest album quite a bit.

  8. Way back in high school I won some tickets from either WFIL or WIBG for a show at the Philadelphia Convention Center (or whatever it was called at the time, the Philadelphia Arena?) and saw a show with Jose Feliciano, the Guess Who, and Fanny.

    Top that in the realm of female band experiences RTHers!

    (Returning home from the show – via the 13 subway surface car – we were nearly mugged by a group of nine guys on West Cobbs Creek Parkway, one of which was wielding, no kidding, a guitar. Fortunately we were able to outrun them, guitar-less as we were.)

  9. 89 year old Doc Watson had a fall and is in critical condition.

  10. Cool piece on The Impossible Years, Philadelphia’s early ’80s paisley pop band, and thanks to their drummer, whom I befriended at a bookstore job, and manager, whom I befriended through my bookstore friend, my first significant contact with our city’s underground music scene.
