They’re Better Live


I’m making this list of shows I want to see in the coming months. I’m sure I’ll only make like half of them, but I can dream. If anyone else wants to join in the orgy that is live music in the spring/summer, holla at me. I’m always down.

free energy

These upstanding young men call themselves Free Energy and they’re from Philly. Right now they’re recording their debut album for DFA with their producer Mr. DFA himself: James Murphy. I can’t find any tracks to give you buy you should definitely check out they’re myspace page and give it a listen. Prediction: they blow up.
