/not what you would call a FOT.
//though it is cool when I see him at shows.
  Tue. 11/11/08 11:45pm Michael Ackerman:

Marshall Crenshaw--nice choice- from the Shake single?
His birthday today you know
  Tue. 11/11/08 11:47pm efd:


really?? I had no idea!
  Tue. 11/11/08 11:53pm efd:

half a milestone birthday, as it turns out... he's 55 today.
  Tue. 11/11/08 11:55pm Michael Ackerman:

I didn't know if he'd want his age given out
  Tue. 11/11/08 11:56pm efd:

well, it's on the bio page on marshallcrenshaw.com, so i figured it was already in the public domain. :)
  Tue. 11/11/08 11:57pm Michael Ackerman:

Good point--I didn't read the site page
  Tue. 11/11/08 11:59pm Marshall Crenshaw:

I don't mind Evan.

Thanks for playing my song!
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:06am Joe:

I highly recommend Tragedy, I saw them open for Electric Six on Rocks Off this summer...
at the time, I had never laughed so hard and danced so much, at the same time, in my life.
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:12am Laurie:

Evan! JACUZZI BOYS and Electric Bunnies are playing a show with Cheap Time this week. I will ask Jacuzzi Boys about doing a WFMU set. Apparently Cheap Time are doing a a WFMU set next month, so...
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:12am ezra:

Michael Ackerman the photographer formerly from SUNY Photo Service?
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:15am efd:

Hi Laurie! I thought the Jacuzzi Boys shows were happening closer to Thanksgiving...? Might be too short notice to set something up, but thanks for checking!
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:15am Michael Ackerman:

Sorry to disappoint you Ezra--that's my doppleganger
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:16am Laurie:

I meant they were playing this week in Miami and I can ask them to get in touch with you.
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:16am efd:

oh! ok, cool - thanks again!
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:17am ezra:

Its good to have a doppleganger... he's a great photographer too...
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:19am Michael Ackerman:

Ezra--the other MA is a great guy (I have met him several times) as well as a great photog
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:24am jere:

use an input jack. for the fruit.
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:27am ?:

"I urge, urge, urge you..."

Wow, some rare ACTUAL urge overkill
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:28am jere:

oh, I have to sign in every time? The UO joke was me. (If you didn't think it was funny, it was someone else.)
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:29am efd:

I *did* think it was funny! (And I had a hunch it was you.)
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:46am jere:

Saul Goode, ha.
  Wed. 11/12/08 12:53am dave:

i'm going to regret saying this i just know it, but i like the BTO version of 'Tramp' better.
  Wed. 11/12/08 1:14am Joe:

Jeeze, I hope I'm not getting predictable...

Yeah they were -great-, Mercury is always fun, the bartenders there keep getting better looking and friendlier, which confuses me as to wether the club itself is a dive, or just faux-dive. Either way, the openers kinda stole the show for me, never heard of them, but they totally rocked my face. Be on the lookout for Jaguar Club. Unless everyone else already knows who they are and I'm just lame. Which is totally likely.
  Wed. 11/12/08 1:18am efd:

not predictable at all, Joe - I just happened to remember that you said you were going to see them when I played them a few weeks ago.

I think we had a CD single from Jaguar Club here, as well as a full-length; didn't really grab me at the time, but maybe I need to try it again.

oh, actually I think that was Jaguar *Love*. Never mind.
  Wed. 11/12/08 1:24am Joe:

You've got quite a good memory for a guy who's show is "FHO"

Personally, I forgot I had mentioned it and got freaked out for a minute when the radio started talking to me.

It's one of those nights.

And Low Red Center is not helping. It's like paranoia in musical form.
  Wed. 11/12/08 1:27am HotRod:

I really enjoyed the last few tracks. :)
  Wed. 11/12/08 1:31am efd:

hi HotRod! Glad you enjoyed them!
  Wed. 11/12/08 2:00am ?:

Great show tonight, was all the right kinds of mellow.

Tune in to the playlist next week, because if the fates align, I'll have a special comment-section only EFD special report on the red carpet of the MTVU Woody awards!

Yeah I didn't know what they were either.
  Wed. 11/12/08 9:11pm John John:

Who is this Laurie from Miami? I live in Ft Lauderdale and she is always talking about the same show and venues I attend all the time. WHO ARE YOU!!!!! I would love to meet another WFMU fan that lives in the South Florida area.

Check me out on myspace.com/garagelife.

Thanks for keeping South Florida music cool
