About to make my way to Birmingham for tonight's Bass Drum of Death show at the Bottletree Cafe. I'll be photographing the show too, which is always a bit of added stress. Not sure why, but I always get extremely distressed before such things, and every sort of precautionary measure does no good. It all goes away once I start snapping photos, however, I won't give up my pre-show obligatory nip of nerve calming Scotch.
To keep myself from thinking about all that, I just finished whipping up a mix-CD for the ride down -- Bass Drum of Death, Eternal Summers, Hella Better Dancer, Abattoir Blues, Lazy Day, Beverly, Interpol, Robert Plant and Karen O are all included. It's a mp3 data disk, so I can get several full length albums on the disk. Anyway, today's Song of the Day is the excellent fresh new song from the band, 'For Blood'. Stream it below.
