Tonight's the night...

Yep - tonight I'm going to see Shout Out Louds & DAYS at The Tivoli in Helsingborg. Despite being a hundred years old, it will be the first time ever that I attend a concert in Sweden. It could be/should be/will be freakin' awesome!
+ Shout Out Louds - Tonight I Have To Leave It
+ Days - Downhill

Yesterday I finally got my hands on the 4 year old demo CD/album Forsidestof til Eftertanke by ENTAKT. It took some begging, some waiting, some foul language and in the end some threats that I was going to send my domestic troops of young rascals into action, before something actually started to happen. But now I have my own copy and since every regular reader of this blog knows that I really love this band, I am obviously delighted to be able to add this small jewel to my music collection. And because I'm totally biased I won't even bother trying to explain how great the CD is!
+ Livets sang går i stå mol (wonderful track)

NY singer/songwriter Spencer Tricker is currently working on a small side project (seems like a lot of those projects are floating around these days) called The Kid Syndicate. He has mailed me two tracks that he describes like this: "One is sort of a cartoon noise-fest about nightclub people and the other one is more like ghosts in a haunted house singing about war." Think I prefer his more laid back solo tracks, though the new ones could be sleepers as they are not without a certain charm!
+ The War
+ Little Red Anorak
+ Altar Blue Boy (solo track)
+ Oblivion (solo track)

Danish weblog Frekvens has picked up the pace and posts news several times a day. And it has been redesigned as well!

It's not secret that I'd like my blog to become widely popular and I've touched this subject a few times before (cannot recall when really). So today I visited a few of the really, really popular music blogs to see what's happening there and maybe even find a few interesting topics I could "borrow" to post in this blog (and even more importantly try to understand WHY they are so popular). Now that I've finished my "tour" I've come to the conclusion that I have these two options:
1. I can change my strategy and start to post news, gossip and maybe even a few songs by useless artists like Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Posh (just gossip), Paris Hilton (even more gossip), RW and JT, as well as every single artist and celebrity showing up at the MTV Video Music Awards.
2. Do absolutely nothing and continue blogging in obscurity!

Which option do you want me to pick?

let me know how the Shout Outs were... gonna see them next week, too! (unless you say they were totally rubbish, but I guess I can rule that out! ;) ). And if there are any EPs from Days, snatch up one for me, too, will you? Cheers, and have fun!

This is fantastic. I want to go with you!!! Days and Shout Out Louds in direct!!!
Have a great concert! :-)

Parklife said...

Please stay obscure! :-) No one really wants/needs to know what's happening with JT or PH...

Enjoy the concert tonight!

José Antonio said...

Yes, obscure! obscure!
The "lights" hurt my ears! ;-)

Larry F. said...

Uh....obscure of course.
We want to keep you our little secret.:)

Well, there's this: "Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever."

But also this:

"Time in its irresistible and ceaseless flow carries along on its flood all created things and drowns them in the depths of obscurity."

So... stay obscure, sir. Or you might just become one of those sites that's so popular that nobody goes there.
