Friday Night PSA & Lotsa Music

Umphrey's McGee plays the Nokia Theatre in Times Square tonight. I don't think it's sold out yet, and I'm going to pick up some tickets from the box office some time after noon. Any takers?

To entice and ensorcell, listen up: In the Kitchen, All in Time, Bridgeless, KaBump> Jazz Odyssey, Miss Tinkle's Overture.

In other quasi-important music news (just let me get it out of my system so we can move on this morning)...

--Some short YSI videos from Trey's sit-in with Phil are goin' round the ol' Internets, and I'm jealous to quite jealous. Big Red joined Big Geek back in '99 and again in '06, so I guess I'll just catch this act again in 2013 (that is, if Phil's transplanted liver holds up).

These'll only be active for a few days, so I'd suggest downloading 'em to your hard drive. Here's Eyes of the World, another Eyes of the World clip, 10 more seconds of Eyes of the World, St. Stephen from the rafters, Cryptical Envelopment, and a bonus Shakedown Street (with Warren Haynes from Saturday).

--And there's a brand new sex tape hittin' the market...but it ain't Paris Hilton and it ain't Ashlee Simpson. This one's not gonna get much traction I think, because it's actually Kid Rock and former Creed frontman/current punchline Scott Stapp hookin' it on a bus with four chicks, or at least that's what the website's preview shows.

If you're interested, and I'm not sure why you would be, you can check it all out right here at Billboard [via Live Music Blog], or go straight to or

Slack Link of the Day: Um, is this NASA climatologist really starting to scare the shit out of anyone else?

Slack Video of the Day: Chipotle Bob sent over this masterpiece, a clip of some Pop Warner kids playing a little American football. The clip is only 15 seconds long, yet it contains two absolute classic gems. The first, an absolutely vicious NFL-style tackle; the second, check out #99 on the yellow team at the end of the video. Wait, is he serious? Are his parents serious? Yahtzee.

Slack Song of the Day: A cool six-piece band called Frogg Cafe played a man down this past Saturday at Nectar's in Burlington, which wouldn't be big news nor well-circulated had it not been for a special guest. Playing without its regular keyboard player, the band checked around Vermont and found a fairly legit and reputable stand-in.

Popping up for the first time Russell Batiste's NOLA Benefit, former keyboardist for the popular rock band Phish, Page McConnell, agreed to replace the band's missing member for the last tune of the night: 2001 (Also Sprach Zarathustra). The Chairman of the Boards makes it perfectly clear he's still got the touch like Dirk Diggler.

So check out Leo's scab skills on 2001, played so beautifully in the manner of Phish in the manner of Deodato. And while you're fiddlin' around with that tune, also take a listen to the band sans Page on their own Sissy Strut and Small Chiwawa.

I played Pop Warner football, and No. 99, you're no Pop Warner player. Someone is going to get seriously hurt with him out there. Imagining him going up against little kids reminded me of this.

I could take one or two...

That #99 is like Finch in Wildcats. I wonder if anyone searched his jock.

I was going to say I'd be down for Umph, but 28 bucks is a little steep.
