"480 Minutes" - new Gentleman Auction House

Thanks to everyone who came out to see Darker My Love at The Independent on Tuesday and to The Rumble on Wednesday -- those back to back late nights were daunting but turned out ot be well worth the effort. I've got one more late night left this week (well, until the Birdmonster mp3 release listening party on Sunday at the Hotel Utah!) and that's tonight at The Owl Mag 3rd Anniversary at the Independent with Wallpaper, Hottub, & Vitamin Party, plus DJ sets by Aaron Axelsen of Live 105 and Amplive of Zion-I. Buy tickets for The Owl Mag event. We will have a couple of pairs of tickets to give away, so when you hear me talking about owls or magazines, get in touch!

A couple of years ago we played a record by a St. Louis band called Gentleman Auction House. I was in love with it, and even though it was just an EP, it ended up on our year-end best albums chart. Their debut full-length album Alphabet Graveyard just came out and our copy finally arrived this week, so we'll be debuting songs from it today. Other music debuting today includes songs from Sebastien Grainger (formerly half of Death From Above 1979 from Montreal, Canada), Powersolo (Aarhus, Denmark), The Faint (Omaha, NE), The LeeMaj7 (San Francisco, CA), Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip (Stanford-le-Hope, England), Human Highway (Ontario, Canada), and Lee "Scratch" Perry (Jamaica).

Please tune in to "480 Minutes" today and every Friday. The show runs live from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time, is rebroadcast starting at 7 p.m., then twice more on Saturday. On Saturday night at midnight we return to regular BAGeL Radio programming.

News: That letter that Bill O'Reilly was all aflutter about in 2003? The one that exonerated the Bushists for their illegal invasion? It was a fake. A fake ordered up by The White House, fabricated by the CIA, and delivered by that Administration stooge Alawi. The Bush Administration has completely destroyed any moral authority the United States may have once had in the world. Heckuva job, Bushie.

Did you miss the election news this week? John McCain decided it was not flip-flopping to mock Obama about something and agree with him about that very same thing in the very same week to slide deeper into the Karl Rovian mud he has employed. Catch up with quick hits and deep links at State Of The Day.
