I posted 2 things today, talk about being prolific

I have kinda gone overboard on the pictures lately so in order to conserve some of your bandwidth I'm giving it a rest.

Yesterday I went to see the My Hotel Year show at Alligator Rocks (I refuse to call it the Rocks Music Room). One of the bands that opened, called SNMNMNM (pronounced s-enem-enem-enem) really caught my attention. When I heard that there was going to be a band with a tuba or something, I originally had wrote it off as a gimmick punk band. After seeing them perform, there is noting that could be farther from the truth. I would describe the band's sound and style as being quirky, indie music in the vein of The Presidents of the United Sates of America. The lead singer has a almost whiny but melodic beach-boys type of high voice. He plays the accordion (and the trumpet in selected songs). In the place of the usual bass guitar is a Tuba which is miked and put through distortion just like a normal bass. Then there is the usual guitar player (who plays trumpet in some songs) and drummer. Their songs range from a disco-themed feel good jam, to a song about a long lost spanish cucumber. I was highly entertained and I recommend that you stop by their website and download some songs: www.SNMNMNM.com

Don't forget to pick up these CDs Tuesday:
- Coheed and Cambria - "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3"
- The Early November - "The Room's Too Cold" (first printing has limited-edition DVD)

Having already listened to the new Co&Ca, I can vouch for its excellence. If you buy it and don't like it, you can punch me in the stomach. NOW THATS A GUARANTEE!
