Lessons from tonight: I need to hang out in Pilsen more. And I wish I had more money to buy art.

"I just want to fall asleep, but I don’t have the time."

Allison Crutchfield, aka lead singer/guitarist of Swearin’ and my personal hero/forever girl crush, just released an EP seemingly out of the blue yesterday and it is great.  Sam Cook-Parrott from Radiator Hospital, another one of my current favorite bands, contributes to the EP as well.  It’s pretty much a collection of songs that would be out of place on a Swearin’ record because they’re lo-fi bedroom recordings that utilize keyboards instead of noisier punk riffs.  I highly suggest you spend $5 and go download it.

After living in Chicago for almost seven years, I figured I should probably go to The Billy Goat one of these days. Also, @alexjweldon and I saw “Boyhood” tonight and it was the best film I’ve seen in a long time. Go see it!
