The Essex Green

I've discovered that I really like The Essex Green. There's four songs on the band's myspace page, but Little Radio was playing "The Late Great Cassiopia" on its myspace page today, and that song is the best of all. Anyway, The Essex Green, of Brooklyn, plays in Seattle on May 2 then does a live spot on Seattle's KEXP (from New York though) on May 19.

That baby needs a "Husky"

Here, we find an interesting article on obesity, and how car-seat manufacturers, casket makers and others are responding.
"From the cradle to the grave and most points between, obesity has found its niche in American marketing. Make that a wide berth. Baby seats, doorways and caskets are but a few examples from a long list of life's accouterments that are getting much bigger to accommodate much bigger people. There are also vacation resorts for those embarrassed to be seen in a bathing suit," Deborah Hastings writes. Continue

Band of Horses

Band of Horses is going to be touring, but apparently they didn't like dealing with snow the last time they were in Denver (at the Larimer Lounge!), so they're not visiting on this latest batch of dates. All I have to say is....come back in the summer. March IS our snowiest month. sheez.

Itzhak Perlman plays in Denver tomorrow night with the Colorado Symphony. It's been sold out for months, but maybe you'll get lucky and find someone selling/scalping their tix.
