they may take my joe pug cd, but they’ll never take our freeeeedom

The thief that busted my car window last night and stole the stereo that my dad gave me for my birthday also took the excellent new Joe Pug CD that was stuck inside of it. I hope the thief listens to it and then feels very very bad and convicted about being an earnest man who is worth something in this world; I also hope he goes out and buys the rest of Joe Pug’s superb catalog and changes his life. And stops being a jerkface jerk.

Hymn 76 – Joe Pug

In the meantime, I will attempt to anesthetize my wounds by going to see Joe’s afternoon BBQ show tomorrow, part of the Larimer Lounge’s excellent BBQ Series. This is a good way to spend your Saturday afternoon and you should come with me.

CONTEST! I have two pairs of tickets to give away for the Joe Pug BBQ (3pm tomorrow). Email me if you would like one of the pairs! Tickets are gone! Come anyways!

Also: this interview I did with Joe is still one of my all-time favorites.

  • oh no! I hope that it won’t cost too much to fix and that nothing else (especially nothing more important!) was taken!

  • i’m sorry to hear about your car. i had my window smashed in last night also. gps + book of cds stolen. i was sad about it all day (i just moved to a new neighborhood – what a welcome) and then a relative stranger (a friend i met through twitter) “gifted” me the garmin gps app for my phone. and i’ve been teary about the kindness of strangers since then. a good end to a bad story. i hope that everything works out for you.

    i love your blog. love love. have been reading for years and trust your recommendations implicitly. your taste is superb and there is heart and joy and longing in the way you write about music that is something special.

    i have been listening to michael kiwanuka – “i’m getting ready” all day. if you haven’t heard it, i think you would enjoy. hope that things get better.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
