"480 Minutes" - The Crazy Busy Week Rerun Edition

Between The Bay Bridged board of advisors meeting, The Lost season finalé, and DJing the Loquat show last night, there simply was no time this week to assemble the 480-minute marathon BAGeL Radio Friday live broadcast. I did review tons of new music including Apostle of Hustle, Black Hat Brigade, Black Moth Super Rainbow, The Breeders, Circus Devils, Conor Oberst And The Mystic Valley Band, Depeche Mode, The Do, Double Dagger, Eagle And Talon, The High Strung, Jake Cherif, Jarvis Cocker, Mariyln Manson (not safe for work!), Peaches, and Popup (either I only got through the letter P in my listening this week, or the second half of the alphabet bands are slacking!).

I look forward to sharing all that and more with you next Friday (5/22).

In the meantime today's program will be a rerun of the Friday the 13th edition of "480 Mainutes" from March which featured the BAGeL Radio debuts of new music from Obits (Brooklyn, NY), Dan Deacon (Baltimore, MD), Benjy Ferree (Washington, DC), Gliss (Los Angeles, CA), Bishop Allen (Brooklyn, NY), Eula (New Haven, CT), An Horse (Brisbane, Australia), The Hopefuls (Minneapolis, MN), Lemon Sun (Los Angeles, CA), Stardeath And White Dwarfs (Norman, OK), Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band (Seattle, WA).

Here is my one gig photo from the week -- Loquat @ Cafe du Nord last night (Thursday, May 14th). I went directly to the venue from work, so I did not have my real camera, but the iPhone takes some amazing photos, and this one is not too bad considering the low light conditions:
