Hey Kirk Kline,
Happy birthday, buddy. Continue reading
The Left Rights are Jimmy and Steve of Mindless Self Indulgence and I’ve made it no secret here and over at the Friendship Farm that I pretty much totally love Mindless Self Indulgence. That said, The Left Rights are no MSI but they do have their moments as evidenced here in the video for “White” off of their recently released Bad Choices Made Easy.
These guys did it, they made the best video on the internet.
I’m not sure what you’re up to tonight, but if you like super totally bad ass live rock shows, then there’s no reason you shouldn’t be attending this show. I saw Priestess open for High on Fire last time they came through (which was the night I called 911 for the first time in my life because some chick fell through my glass coffee table and was bleeding from her back) and 2 things real quick-they slayed my brain and their albums don’t do their live show justice.
What I’m saying is if you like cool shit you should go to this show because Priestess will rock your socks off.
8pm door, 9pm show
Phantods is keeping it quirky and catchy on “Creature” (Donewaiting staffers are yet to discuss it) which they just so happen to be having a cd release for on Saturday, November 13 at Skully’s with The Receiver and Karate Coyote. (Quick aside, Karate Coyote always make me think of Hong Kong Phooey, might be a better band name too)
Check out an acoustic performance of “Revival” and the flier for Saturday night’s show after the jump. Continue reading
Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s The Wildbirds (not to be confused with Wildbirds and Peacedrums or Angry Birds) made the 400+ mile trek to Columbus back in September to play a show with hometown dudes George Elliot Underground (whose drummer filled in for the session/show) and they were kind enough to stop by Electraplay for a High Life-fueled “Donewaiting.com presents Live at Electraplay” session. The Wildbirds have gotten nods from “Little Steven” Van Zandt, Rolling Stone dude David Fricke and ESPN so they must be doing something right.
We talked about beer (it was basically a coincidence that I brought a 30-pack of High Life), told jokes (theirs were funnier than mine) and pretty much just hung out and high-fived (I honestly don’t remember).
Kings of Leon are the poor man’s Wildbirds.
More videos after the jump! jump! Continue reading

Dear Rock on the Range,
I have totally developed a serious love/hate relationship with you over the past two years, this year was way better than last year and I had the best fucking time/the worst fucking time. I met a lot of straight up cool motherfuckers and a lot of straight up uncool motherfuckers.
Rock on the Range 2010 also solidified my belief that there are two kinds of people in this wonderful world we live in-Dudes that get it and motherfuckers that straight the fuck up do not. Guess which campground I camp at??? Continue reading

Following a trail of destruction is easy. You might have seen the path of tornadoes in Oklahoma as they swooped and destroyed neighborhoods. Walking up to the LC on Sunday night the path of destruction was evident. You could see sticky dried brown liquid on the ground and you could hear it with every step. Yup, high fructose corn syrup all over the ground and that means one thing; the Insane Clown Posse were in town.
The Dark Carnival was on one side of the street and Ringling Brothers on the other side. Both have clowns and both have differing types of clientele. Police were stationed facing the LC. Kirk tried asking the cop a question and was ignored. He knew where we were headed. We knew where we were headed. Ugh. You could hear juggalos over the traffic “WOOT WOOT!” Continue reading
In case you just got the internet yesterday and don’t read that other tastemaking music website, How to Destroy Angels is Cleveland homeboy’s post-NIN project with his wife Mariqueen Maandig, formerly of West Indian Girl radness. A six song, self-titled EP is expected sometime this summer. The first track “A Drowning” makes me think of the best NIN record ever “The Fragile.”

Our man Kirk Kline spent some time with Dead Meadow when they were in Columbus last week. This is how it went down.
