3rd birthday! pizza party!! Plus Shannon & The Clams new album + tour


By this time, nobody is keeping track of how old we are. Not even us. When it comes to remembering birthdays and anniversaries and other peoples’ feelings, if someone isn’t following me around with a calendar, shouting “PLEASE REMEMBER TO CARE ABOUT THIS” I can guarantee you I will forget. I am too busy preparing a snack. In this respect, I am much like a foraging animal with excellent taste in music.


But for real. Here’s a new one from Oakland’s finest Shannon & The Clams to celebrate. Can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to their new album Dreams in the Rat House out May 21st on Hardly Art.

And here’s two from 2011’s Sleep Talk

Have you fallen in love with them yet? Of course you have.
