Yesterday when I was jogging home from my huge 2-lap run around Palmer Square I RAN into my friend Jacob from California. Turns out he's the drummer for Wavves these days - clearly I have not been facebook stalking Jacob enough. 
Anyway, I couldn't pass up a chance to see him play, so even though I had very important plans of sitting in sweatpants watching Breaking Bad on Netflix all night, I went to the show.

I want to hate Wavves: It's moronic (Nathan's favourite word), that kid acts like a little bitch, and he looks like an ex-boyfriend of mine circa 2001. Yet, it was a great show and it was super fun. Damn!

Falkor put it best this morning as we reflected on our fun had at the show, "Wavves is this generations Blink 182." It's true. It's totally true.

This video rules - One day I hope fans make awesome Home Improvement videos of Summer Girlfriends' songs.

Last week I went to the Empty Bottle (shocking) to see The Vivian Girls (also shocking). We managed to get there early enough though to see the local openers Nones.  I had never heard of them before, but recognized Sara Jean drumming so I knew they were a Chicago band. Even though they had my least favourite instrument, the fucking horrible saxophone, they totally ruled, and I cannot wait to see them again...maybe even play a show together?

Summer Girlfriends have been asked to do a MUSIC VIDEO!!!! In the meantime totally checkout this video for Wild Flag. It rules and if we had the budget we would totally have a video where we run around causing good-natured mayhem!
