You in the back: can you hear me? The siren's on.

The crazy girl with the cape outside Black Cat told us the Thermals had a great song and it went like this: "Nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh." Turns out she was talking about "A Pillar of Salt," which the band did play. Two points: that is a hell of a song and that girl was bat shit crazy. She wore a cape. And a note to her boyfriend: I'm not sure why you were giving me the hairy eyeball; it wasn't my crotch that she grabbed at the bar.

Bands like the Thermals, you know what you're gonna get. Energy, tunefulness, and yadda yadda yadda. And for that reason, it's hard to get into details. It was a good show, we'll leave it at that. So instead:

Top five songs right now:
1. Okkervil Rier - A Girl in Port
2. Band of Horses - Is There a Ghost
3. Bat for Lashes - What's a Girl To Do
4. The National - Mistaken for Strangers
5. The Thermals - An Ear for Baby

Oh yeah, and... anyone else see this Springsteen-Clear Channel controversy? Like the post's author, Will Bunch, the last few years have really left me exhausted, politically, and anymore it's hard to work myself into a lather. So I won't do it. I just think its prescient that the new Springsteen starts out with "Radio Nowhere."
