Options May 11, 2010: w/ live music from BIG TROUBLES
Big Troubles is the shoe-gazin' duo of Alex Craig and Ian Drennen from Ridgewood NJ. Live, they're joined by Sam Franklin (Fluffy Lumbers) and Luka Usmani, bringing thunderous drums and a wall of guitar noise to further electrify Big Troubles' whirling, reverb-drenched jangle-pop. Their debut 7'' on Blackburn Recordings is nearly sold out, but a new 7'' and a full-length LP are on the way from Olde English Spelling Bee.

  Tue. 5/11/10 9:17am jason:

live music from Ridgewood NJ's shoegaze group Big Troubles, comin up a little after the top of the hour
  Tue. 5/11/10 9:30am Parq:

Ridgewood NJ? What an unlikely town for a band to be from, especially one like this. I picture them in somebody's back yard on a warm day in June, with all the neighbors complaining.
  Tue. 5/11/10 9:53am Skirkie:

Eh, maybe they're right near the Oradell border.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:06am Cecile:

I never quite got shoegaze, unless you count Swervedriver and My Bloody Valentine as shoegaze. Which I kind of don't.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:09am kevin shields:

MBV is the epitome of shoegaze
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:11am Cecile:

Hunh. I just thought they were a good proto-drone band. I stand corrected. I like no shoegaze except for MBV and Swervedriver, then.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:17am jason:

is JAMC shoegaze?
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:22am Cecile:

I dunno. I liked em for their first few singles, and the song "hole" and that was it.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:33am dc pat:

what ever shoegaze is, I don't count MBV in that group. They're WAY to noisy for most shoegazers.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:38am jason:

hope everyone's listening at high volume!
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:41am jen v.:

love this so much
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:42am Skirkie:

The highest that is socially acceptable for a cubicle. Maybe a bit more.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:42am Tom:

Has a first album Teenage Fanclub vibe. Good stuff.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:42am Chris from DC:

Not as loud as I would like, but these guys are great.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:45am Parq:

High as I dare at work. These guys are killer!
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:47am dc pat:

remember Archers of Loaf?
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:47am Cecile:

this sounds more like the Huskers than shoegaze.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:49am purmain:

huskers, cecile?
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:49am Carmichael:

Good mornin' every body. They're a little sho-gazy, dreamy, strummy ....
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:50am Cecile:

Husker Du?
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:51am Carmichael:

Bob Mould.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:55am Skirkie:

I can't believe there are still angelfire pages.
  Tue. 5/11/10 10:57am kurt russel:

big troubles in little china
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:01am dc pat:

big troubles is a pretty solid name too. How hasn't that been used before?
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:04am Skirkie:

There's a Big Trouble in Brazil. But they don't seem similar.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:06am Cecile:

If a Chicago doom-metal band, and a Billy Sheehan hair band joined forces, they'd be Mr. Big Trouble.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:10am Carmichael:

Boy, I love anything Martin Newell does. What album is this from, Jason?
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:13am jason:

hey Carmichael, found it on their Golden Cleaners
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:15am Cecile:

YES. Tobin Sprout. The fate of the world is safe in these young peoples' hands.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:15am Carmichael:

Thanks, I'll go get it!
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:16am dom:

Ahh--------needed some of that Carnival air....
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:17am Cecile:

HAH! I called it!
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:18am dc pat:

ah there's Bob.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:18am dc pat:

you should play Bob w/ No Age backing him up. That shit is rippin.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:19am Carmichael:

Whoa. That IS him! Criminy, I can't keep up with these kids and their bands, playing the crunchy music.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:20am dc pat:

anybody else going to see the Buzzcocks tonight in DC? ...speakin of non-kids...
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:22am Parq:

The deejay set is every bit as good as the performance set was.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:23am Cecile:

this is all the kind of stuff I was listening to in the 90s when I was hating most rock

Am I wrong for liking the Breeders more than the Pixies?
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:25am Skirkie:

♥ Kim Deal
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:25am dc pat:

I dunno Cecile...first 2 or 3 Pixies albums are priceless in my book.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:26am Cecile:

I've tried. So hard. They just don't hit me.
Although I've really liked some of Frank Black's solo stuff!
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:27am Carmichael:

Granted I'm on the other side of the land mass and also nowhere near trendy LA, I can't see what the hollerin's about with the Pixies. They're good and all, but it seems lots of people view them as deities.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:28am dc pat:

I think what did it for me was actually seeing them in 89 or so. Black Francis was just nuts, face red, veins bulging. They were tiny on Love and Rockets stage but made a way bigger sound.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:29am Cecile:

yes, half of my family does. And we're smack dab in the midwest.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:29am dc pat:

sorry Carm, ya gotta be Amerkican to like the Pixies...
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:30am BSI:

What it is!
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:33am Parq:

Carm, I'm completely from the US, and I agree with you. Seen 'em, have what's supposed to be their best album, just can't find anything to get worked up about. But that DJ set was a knockout.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:35am Carmichael:

That explains everything, DC Pat ... :-)
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:36am dc pat:

dang! Guess I'm all alone here. Oh well.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:38am dc pat:

love Arrington. You're definitely going to have a good time when ever he's playing. And you'll probably only pay 5 bucks.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:39am BSI:

holy crap. this is wonderful. Arrington thing. Need more.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:48am Cecile:

okay, this Black Bug song should be called "Shakin' Street"
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:49am Cecile:

Or pink noise or whoever. Wow. I couldn't tell it was Cheap Trick.
  Tue. 5/11/10 11:51am Dead Corporate Eyes:

Just saw Sightings in a decrepit warehouse during a lightning/hailstorm on Friday...
