Tonight, I’m going to see the INTERPOL + BLONDE REDHEAD show. I’m really looking forward to it. I love Blonde Redhead, and I’ve recently warmed to Interpol. Until their newest album, they just sort of seemed like a Joy Division (sans authentic melancholy) rip off to me. Actually, I still kind of think of them in that way, but now I’ve embraced it. Album reviews can be found here and here.
Anyway, today I’ll just be listing some links from around the web for your weekend enjoyment.
