Get To Know Paul McCartney's Son at the Kessler.
It's already May? The hell? Where did April go?
Maybe April was just too fun, too jam-packed with awesome things, that we've barely had time to breathe, let alone rest and realize that it's over.
But who needs sleep, anyway? With graduation looming around the corner for some, and others eagerly anticipate a beautiful segue into summer with countless music festivals popping up around the region, May is possibly shaping up to be even more awesome than April.
So let's pick ourselves up by the bootstraps, head out tonight and kick off May properly. Because, fuck it, some of us are still young.
Pure X, Madras and Son of Stan at the Live Oak

As for that first record>? Pitchfork said it was “a terrific-sounding record, built for headphones and high volume.” Can't make it out to the Fort to catch them tonight? Catch them on May 25 at the Granada.
