So I've already written about the AK-747s and Daddy Issues a bit, but just a reminder that the SLIP~ons are on the bill tonight at the Railway, too! Not clear who the headliner is, of the three, but the SLIPs - raucous, unruly, and not quite as inebriated as the Replacements were that night at the Town Pump - but close! - are well on the way to releasing an EP (mark your calendars for May 19th, for the first single and video; more action throughout the summer; the title of both the initial single and the EP as a whole is Heavy Machinery). Brock Pytel (whom I interviewed here) says the show is "a casual thing, because I love Betty and we haven't ever played with any of her bands." Check out the SLIP~ons previous single, "Bad TV," here.
