It was over a year ago that I was first introduced to the “shreds” videos on Youtube, and like local artist Jeremy Messersmith, I absorbed them with a sponge-like fervor. Yet unlike Jeremy Messersmith, I never created my own “shred.”
Jeremy, you just earned your badass street cred badge of hilarity. Good show sir!
And here is my favorite “shred.” That of Judas Priest.

Just got a note from our friend Paul Pirner notifying us about an acoustic gig tomorrow at the Kitty Kat Klub where he and Jimmy Peterson from The 757’s will be debuting some new material. No cover charge, and should be well worth your time on the comfy couches.

About a month and half late on this one, but we adhere to that old saying. Need I mention it? You can download this tune HERE.

Sometimes I receive new music at just the right time. While spinning The Jesus and Mary Chain’s Automatic in my CD player, I stopped to press play on a couple tunes from The Library out of Brooklyn, NY. These guys mimic the Chain’s smooth sound, and they have a new album out titled The Life And Times Of Rosa Lee. If you’re itching for something new to get you through some cold winter days, then you got it!
Below is my favorite from the new album, the righteous “Club Amnesia.”

There are few reasons to venture outdoors on a gloomy day in St. Paul, so why not empty out the mailbag? Electric Owls is a new little project out of Asheville, NC, and below is the first single from the band entitled “Magic Show.” Hopefully when these guys decide to embark Minneapolis will make the cut.
Swing by the band’s Myspace page and check out the tune “Put, the Candle, Back” too. It rocks.
