FRIENDLY REMINDER: Dan Deacon & Ultimate Reality @ Eyedrum - TONIGHT

Just a friendly reminder that Dan Deacon will be performing his collaborative "Ultimate Reality" tonight at Eyedrum. The show starts at 9pm, and it only costs $10. I wish I could go to this but the holidays killed my wallet.

"Ultimate Reality is a collaborative performance by Baltimore’s Dan Deacon and Jimmy Joe Roche. It combines an intense musical composition for electronics and drums with a psychedelic montage of Arnold Schwarzenegger films that is projected at a monumental scale. The live energy of the performance has allowed the piece to freely move between art and music venues and grant it a wide audience of appreciation. The touring group also includes Jeremy Hyman (from Ponytail) and Kevin O’Meara (from Video Hippoes) on drums."

Two NEW songs from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have put two new songs on their Myspace, which are available to download below as well. Hopefully this means we can expect a new album sometime soon! Both songs are as catchy as any of their previous work, and both have me hitting the skip-back button quite frequently. I highly suggest you check out more of their music, which you can find on their Myspace page as well.
