Win Bar Bets, Wow The Ladies and Gentlemen With Summerfest Factoids!
August 20th, 2013
Dang I love random lists of facts. No context, just factoids. Kernels of truth in an age of the opaque. I thought I'd round some up on this Saturday's Summerfest line-up. Perhaps you could put these on signs and hold them up. That would freak them out right!.
Paste Magazine has just included Cayucus in their Best Of What's Next Issue. As I write however the actual article is not up on their site. Bloody hell!
New Cold War Kids member Dann Gallucci used to be in Modest Mouse. And yes he spells his name with two n's.
Matt And Kim really were naked in Times Square for this video!
Matt was in favor of it, Kim was not.
Thao Nguyen from Thao and the Get Down Stay Down honed her guitar chops while a pre-teen working at her mother's Falls Church, Virginia laundry business.
J. Roddy Walston and The Business now call Baltimore, Maryland home, but were actually formed in Cleveland..... Tennessee.
Before adopting the moniker Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., the Detroit duo briefly toyed with the name Counting Crows Part II. This is not unprecedented.
Ra Ra Riot formed while members attended Syracuse University. Another alumni? Lou Reed.
Smith Westerns recorded their first album in 2009 while still in high school. I'm impressed with anyone who can do anything interesting while still in high school.
Well that's quite enough for now. Tickets are just $15 and we hope you'll come out for the party, and as always buy me a beer!
