My Little Brother's Just Discovered Rock & Roll

My love for Art Brut is well documented.

Their debut, Bang Bang Rock & Roll was 10 kinds of fun and their follow-up, It's A Bit Complicated is even better. It's even more focused, catchy and witty, while still packing an emotional punch.

And my brother's band is playing a show with them.

I know, it's awesome, right? Bryan managed to wheel and/or deal and secure a slot opening for them at the Beauty Bar in downtown Las Vegas next Thursday (if youre interested and in town, by all means, GO!) and he asked me to make a poster to promote the event.

So I did:

In the world of Eddie Argos, Art Brut's singer (shouter? yelper?), love and music are inseparable, though sometimes at odds. It's A Bit Complicated is full of the kinds of little tics that resonate with anyone who has an unhealthy love for music: breaking from a kiss to turn the radio up, making a mixtape for someone to say what you can't in person, finding solace in your records after a trying time. As the two things, love and music, are tied, the solution became more and more obvious.

Also, I was running out of time.

I have some of these with the wrong address printed on them if anyone wants to purchase one. Let me know and we will work something out.

Holy smokes, Dylan. Our 40 day lent has come and gone. September 5 was our last day. We made it. Thank you for your support. It was a success. Here's to hoping we stay strong.

Between school and work I'm doing 5 15 hour days per week.

Yes, I did see that. I tried buying tickets this morning (today was "Crazy Look For Upcoming Shows" day here, is t hat in your calendar?), but sadly, it is sold out.

I am making this face:

:(

But I did manage to get two tickets to Ryan Adams' show and am seriously thinking about seeing Iron & wine and Jens Lekman soon.

I am now making this face:

Now that we can leave the kids with a sitter, it's like independence Day. The holiday, not the movie. Now I know how Ben Franklin felt after he single-handedly defeated the British hordes with his fabled Amulet of Ammogatto.
