Tonight in SLC The Drums and Surfer Blood roll into the Urban Lounge for one of the hottest bills of the fall! It’s a co-headling tour and I don’t know who I’m more excited (yes I do but I don’t want to play favorites)

If you’ve read any music website over the past six months or so, you’ll probably have heard a song or two by The Drums. The New York via Florida band has been making waves with singles like “Let’s Go Surfing” and their Summertime! EP which came out last year. This June will see their self-titled debut album’s release, and here’s the video for the first single from the album, called “Forever and Ever Amen” (thankfully not a Randy Travis cover). Grab the mp3 below the video.

Forever and Ever Amen

The Drums is out June 7th. You can also download another track from the album, “It Will All End in Tears” at their website.

Good Friday

lizardloungeIt’s Friday as you know, and my only class was canceled today so I am feeling GREAT. I do feel a little bad about not updating at all since the last post this week BUT I feel like there isn’t anything I could tell you that other blogs are telling you this week. It’s like I ever break any huge news, you know that.

Anyway, I just thought I’d tell you about this band I just listened to yesterday but know I’m in love with. It’s funny how instant love can be in music. NOT so much in real life. I mean I guess it’s possible, but love at first listen is a lot more plausable.

So The Drums. They’re great. You might have heard their track “Let’s Go Surfing” and they’ve got an EP of stuff out and it’s so fun! It really makes me wish I could listen to it on repeat in my car with the windows down on the way to the beach. We all know I can’t do that! Landlocked. Cold Utah fall. Duh. Oh well I’ll just put on my tennis shorts and Hawaiian shirt and flip flops and pretend it’s still summer.

Me and the Moon

I Felt Stupid

PS did anyone watch 30 Rock last night/this morning on Hulu? I want more!
