This is one of those videos where the volume for the music parts is 1,000 times louder than the volume for the interview parts, and even when you crank the volume on the interview parts you can barely hear Turbo Fruits talking about blowjobs or the sizes of their own penises. They do talk about you, Nashville audiences, and you think too much sometimes. I'd like to be at one of those shows! Anyway, the talky-talk part is OK, but the live footage at the end is pretty fun. Apparently those Ivy League kids don't think too much when presented with the sweet Nashville rock 'n' roll.
According to the Gab, Bach tweeted the following in conjunction with the pic: "At John rich video shoot with George Jones Aaron Lewis of Staind & TED F****n NUGENT & John richs son Cash!" I think I'm just going to let that tweet speak for itself. Welcome to the world, Cash Rich. I know; it's pretty fucked up.

It’s funny how the fickle, churning sea of indie cred rolls. Just three years ago, Beach House opened for The Clientele at The Basement to a crowd of perhaps two dozen. On Wednesday night, they performed before a sold-out Mercy Lounge audience. They did, however, release two completely remarkable records since that set at The Basement, so The Spin ain’t trying to pass judgment. It’s just funny to see a handful of desperate-looking youngsters — who look like they’ve misplaced their fixed-gears — running about the Cannery parking lot in search of spare tickets at the very last minute. Good for Beach House.
Strotter himself describes his technique, in part, thusly: "the main source of sound are the prepared pick-ups (i.e. sewing needles or strings instead of the diamond or the extended use of rubber bands)." The show costs $5 and hey, if avant-skronk-bot post-industrial metal-scrape-core isn't your thing, at least the cover charge includes free booze! Check out some video after the jump to get an idea of what you're in for/up against.
Thanks to Theatre Intangible for the heads-up.
Here's a song!
The title's a bit presumptuous, but you want a bit of that in a young chap, don't you? LW will be playing at Grimey's today at the relatively early hour of 1:30 p.m. (for free), and then they'll open for Quasi tonight at Mercy Lounge (for $10).
Now, I could go into great detail about how the book offers much more than the website can, such as features like “Is This a Hipster?,” “Celebrity Hipsters” and “Hipsters Through the Ages” — not to mention a full-on photo shoot with Beans. But instead of all that, I think I’ll tackle this whole “modern usage of the word ‘hipster’ ” thing. At least a little. Most of us know that the term ‘hipster’ originally, in fact, referred to members of the jazz culture of the 1940s. These folks saw through cultural conventions and formalities, rejected them, and instead strove to embrace a higher, more informed awareness via jazz and acceptance of the true pleasures in life (i.e. good music, mild narcotics and frequent orgasms). They (and this might sound a bit familiar) were “overcivilized to the point of decadence.”
According to Billboard, this year's RSD helped independent shops across the country break sales records. It was also "the biggest day of sales for vinyl in SoundScan’s history." Of course, SoundScan's history starts in 1991, which isn't exactly a golden age for vinyl sales, but the fact that we had record record sales in the year of our Internet 2010 is a pretty interesting development.
On the local tip, Doyle "D-Funk" Davis tells the Cream that Record Store Day was the single biggest sales day in Grimey's history — by 40 percent. "It was all vinyl, man," he adds. He also says that next year they'll be selling the RSD special vinyl outside under tents, so that people don't get caught up in the line and miss out. Meanwhile, over on the East side, Chris Roberts at The Groove reports that they, too, had their "best sales day ever."

With many more artists, dates and locations to be announced in the weeks to come, if the examples after the jump are any indication, it's looking like Nashville non-country is going global this summer, one fan at a time.
Foster's got a voice that sounds like it's being channeled from another era, like it should be unfurling from a Victor phonograph horn or a crackling tube radio. Her album Graphic as a Star sets the poems of Emily Dickinson to spare, pastoral instrumentation and that clarion, transporting voice.
Sharing the bill tonight are Amy Marcantel of Forrest Bride; The Cherry Blossoms; and New Pangaea. Doors at 9 p.m., show at 10 p.m., sliding scale of $5-$7.
