"480 Minutes" - Hangover? What Hangover?

Last night was our latest "Presents..." show at Bottom of the Hill, and as always, the staff was so nice that you just want to hug them, the bands (King TuffJaillThe Coathangers) were great, and the place was packed. Sold out, even.  What a geat night!  Thanks to everyone involved, including the friends I see all the time, the friends I don't see as often as I should, and whoever was thoughtful enough to bring the underage kids along to witness an awesome all-ages show!

Seeing as it is mere hours before the start of 480 Minutes and I still need to get at least a couple of hours of sleep before hosting the show, I'm going to cut this post a little short and get right to the heart of the matter:

Today on 480 Minutes we will debut new songs by Admiral Fallow (Glasgow, Scotland), The Antlers (Brooklyn, NY), Band of Horses (Charleston, SC), Bearhug (Sydney, Australia), Bloc Party (London, England), Cate Le Bon (Cardiff, Wales), Dan Deacon (Baltimore, MD), Holograms (Stockholm, Sweden), Niki Becker (Minneapolis, MN), Passion Pit (Cambridge, MA), Weird Dreams (London, England), and Wildlife Control (San Francisco, CA and Brooklyn, NY).

The 480 Minutes program is live-hosted and your feedback between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time (time zone adjuster) is usually greeted sweetly, sometimes not-so-sweetly (watch those fingers!):
