Well well well, if you don't go to YOB this week, I don't know what to say. I have an excuse, I will be 3000 miles away with hipsters at some NYC music festival.
Other than that, party on bros; I hope to come back from NYC completely exhausted and broke.
Hey, if anyone can find the band Heat for me, I will appreciate it, that is my next favorite band.
I really like this show! Check it out this week!!
The Hogfather: Ugh (Germany) (0:28-4:14)

(A new one from Hooded Menace!! This is yet another full-length album after a short time, and even though it is less experimental than their past, a strong and worthy addition to your collection)

In Space: Enos (UK) (29:40-36:57)
(If you can find me a band called Heat, with members from Samsara Blues Experiment, you better let me know, because they are frigging great and they have a stupid general name and self-titled album so un-googleable)
(Instrumental Spanish band Black Smoke Dragon is gorgeous loudscape)

(Scary creepy noise from bro from Meatjack – his side project)
Eyes in Eyes: Darsombra (Baltimore) (44:02-50:02)
