* You remember when The Greenhornes did that Grimey’s in-store to celebrate the release of ★★★★? Despite the fact that my computer still can’t seem to figure out how display that record title correctly, YouTube user Corwick4 remembers. In fact, (s)he’s posted footage of the songs “My Sparrow” and “Under Estimator.”
* You remember the ’90s? How about The Offspring’s song “Come Out and Play”? My So-Called Band and Pink Spider/Dozen Dime Matt Friction remember. See a video of said gem recorded at their Cannery Ballroom appearance a few weeks back.
* You remember to get me something for Christmas? There’s still time! Pitchfork posted a pretty great staff-picks list of holiday gifts, which included some posters from Chicago-based screen-print studio Sonnenzimmer. Among P4k’s faves? Nick Butcher’s Surfer Blood/Turbo Fruits tour poster from earlier this year.
* You remember to fill out the Rock 'n' Roll Poll we sent you? If you write or play or book shows or hang out a lot, check your inbox. Steve, Gold and I probably sent you our annual Rock 'n' Roll Poll. Fill it out. If you don't see anything in your inbox ... then, um, never mind. Forget I said anything.
