Unyielding Commissioning Cheers Up, Offers Free Music

I'll Believe In Anything - Roger Ebert weighs in on the age of credulity as it relates to a column he wrote about Creationism. In his disussion, he manages to touch on Hamlet, Pulp Fiction, Heroes, and Jonathan Swift. This is a brilliant piece of writing and is relates to politics, science, humor, and the way we live our lives today. Just go read it. (Incidentally, Ebert has been on fire lately.)

Vote or Cry - Do you like Fleet Foxes? Sure you do. Do you like Wilco? At least a little, right? Do you like Democracy? How about America? Well, Wilco and Fleet Foxes have recorded a cover of Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released," and it can be yours for the low, low price of pledging to vote in this year's election on November 4th. Click here for all the goods. (HT: GvB)

Not Loveless At All, Actually - Jim Derogatis examines the return of My Bloody Valentine at great length. Like everyone else, he's a fan. I mean, how could you not at least respect this band, if not fawn over them the way Jim does. They are playing the Aragon this Saturday, surely a bigger venue than they've ever played in this city in the past.

Even More Free! - Don't have tickets to the sold out MBV show? Head over to The Mutiny this Saturday for The Nuwava Festival for a ten-band extravaganza. Bands include Knife of Simpson, Jonny Rumble and eight others! Did I mention that it's free? Did I also mention that there's free food and free pool? And $5 half-pitchers of PBR? So if you're not already otherwise occupied at the Aragon, you know what you should be doing. Eating and rocking for free whilst you drink for cheap. See you there.
