Deadbeat Beat is playing a last-minute gig at the Hamtramck Labor Day Festival this Sunday. 8 pm. Free. Gogogogogo.
I just went to the record store for the first time in a WHILE w/ Alex. Spent a lil bit too much money. No more record shopping for this girl for another month. BUT, this is what I picked up...
The Rose Garden, S/T
The Bee Gees, "Bee Gee's 1st"
Not gonna lie, I'm happy I got this, but I wish it was Robin Gibb's super bitter solo record "Robin's Reign" instead.
The Rolling Stones, "Flowers"
Okay I know it's almost "Between the Buttons" but I don't care because it's mono and the first pressing. And it has so many hits. And I looked it up on ebay and it's going for more than twice what I paid. Woooooooo. And I like the cover. And mono.
The Rubinoos, "Back to the Drawing Board"
I remember when that Avril Lavigne song came out (ya know the one that Lil Mama later collaborated w/ Avril on a remix version) and Zak sent me a link to a fake Rubinoos MySpace that had the song "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" and it was the same song, basically. MIND BLOWN. Then 4 years later I bought this album because it was rainy and I needed to spend money on records so I wouldn't be depressed on account of the weather. Look at that cover. How could you be depressed.
Joni Mitchell, "Blue"
An all-time fave that for some reason I didn't own in this format.
Sometimes blogging about records I bought makes me feel better that I'm probably only going to be eating peanut butter 'til I get paid again next Thursday.
