Another reason I love my college:

I was fooling around on the internet this morning and decided to see what was the latest with a few bands.  Lo and behold, I discovered within a fifteen-minute period that Caravan of Thieves, Gandalf Murphy & the Slambovian Circus of Dreams, and Dark Star Orchestra are all stopping by Northampton this month.

Oh yeah, and then there's Phish in Amherst in October.

I'm trying my best not to brag but... I love Western Massachusetts.  Get ready for some reviews, ladies and gents.

The sun will shine and the leaves will fall,

Umphrey's is at it again...

by providing us with another hilarious and spot-on cover of a pop-culture hit.  First it was SNL's "Dick in a Box"...

..and now Cee-Lo Green's internet sensation "Fuck You"!  The sound on this video isn't the best, but the fact is hilarious nonetheless.

Enjoy, friends.

Shakedown Street: The EC$TACY EDIT

What do you guys think of this remix of the Grateful Dead's "Shakedown Street"?  Apparently it was spun by a guy named DJ Joe E. Crak.

I think I like it, but I can't be so sure.  After listening to it, my brain kind of hurts.  Is that normal?

The remix doesn't even sound like Shakedown Street until about a minute into it, but then it gets into a really funky groove involving the main riff.  The beginning of the lyrics is suspended by instant replays which climaxes into the real line - Nothing's shakin' on Shakedown Street.

But if you ask me, something cool is definitely going down.
