We'd just like to take a moment to deliver virtual homemade cookies and soymilk to our new neighbors, the ever nummy Sonic Boom Records. We are soooo excited to have such a cool record store within stumbling distance. I fear for my future loss of disposable cash.
We crashed their opening party on Saturday, along local pop-masters the Model Rockets and everyone's favorite all-star pop collective, the Minus Five. Both bands dazzled me with their power-prop-prowess, and I'm fairly certain Peter Buck waved at me at least twice.
I spent way too much money, acquired five new CDs (the Lawnmowers, the Divorce, the Long Winters, Longwave, and Joy Division, thankyoueverymuch!). I see the beginnings of yet another very dangerous habit forming here…
Oh Goddamnit, but I do love me these expensive bad habits… so THANK YOU to Sonic Boom, for contributing to our imaginary delinquency…
And welcome to the 'hood!
