    Chloe, unzipped.

    LISTEN: AIDS Wolf at myspace
    WATCH: AIDS Wolf live video

    Last night at Great Scott I spent, like, 3 whole songs trying to figure out whether or not cootie-licious AIDS Wolf frontchick Chloe could see, through her zebra-striped shades, that her fly was down. Somewhere about the time that she took a long enough break from her spazzed out screams and ghastly whines to drop the mic through her gaping crotch-hole, I figured she knew damn well about that shit.

    Yeah, Coldplay aren't an arena rock band. They just sell out 30,000 seat amphitheaters wherever their tour trucks may roam. That said, a scalped $40 lawn seat for Saturday night's Tweeter Center blowout would've provided you with a chance to:

    1) Sneak your way into the circle pit and rub elbows with Gwyneth, who was sans Apple and sporting a classic Margot Tenenbaum-style boredom-stare

    As we speak, the Pixies are shooting a video at the Paradise. They're also playing a secret show at the Paradise on Monday. For now, it appears tickets are available only at the box office. OTD's sister just stumbled by the marquee and picked up a pair for $15 each. Cami's report on the Pixies' acoustic set at Newport yesterday is coming soon.

    LISTEN: Cave In, "Down the Drain" (mp3, OTD exclusive)
    [Ed. note: This song is actually called "Down the Drain," not "Droned," as previously stated: that's what happens when you're working with a pre-pre-release CD-r.]

    Most of Cave In's albums have been of a piece -- it's just that they're each different pieces.

    The bad news, if you wanna call it that, is that Finch couldn't make it to the Hatch Shell tonight. So we got Waltham instead. Details here.

    While we're at it, we figured we'd give you some more good news:

    Not to be outdone, the Certified Bananas bunch just dropped an August Mix, this time WITH FANCY COVER ART, and -- just in time for their tour -- they're coming out with the complete set on old-fashioned round plastic-y type things, which apparently you can insert into a laser-reader machine of some sort.

    We remember when Jake Brennan was a metal kid signed to Victory who wrote reviews for Punk Planet. We remember when his backing band the Confidence Men wasn't really that good. That was a long fucking time ago. By the time they showed up at the Boston Music Awards last year, signed to Yep Roc and everything, JB had his own JBCMs pulling off organ-drenched, grease-fried Chuck Berry rave-ups like prime-era Animals, Byrds, Stones, and Broooooosh all-at-once.

    Nothing is likely to replace the straight-to-DVD version, but future scholars may find this useful. Still, Sylvester?:
    "The following sections contain explanatory notes and textual insights on Trapped in
    the Closet
    . There is a summary of each chapter, as well as helpful commentary that illuminates literary motifs and stylistic elements within the narrative.

    Odds and ends this morning...

    1. Product-placement gimmick of the week (courtesy of Warped Tour, natch): kids vote to extend the length of their fave band's set by 10 minutes, courtesy of a battery manufacturer.

    2. When OTD ain't blogging, we've been potty-training the 2-year-old; but jeez, hope it doesn't take as long as it's taking Fergie's dad

    Paul Wall/Skinhead Rob photo courtesy Houstonsoreal; without Matt Sonzala, this meeting prolly never happens.

    Cross-polination: you're supposed to embrace it unconditionally. That's a bad idea, but here's two really good ideas that translate into two very nearly really great songs. The first is from punk's first screw-driven remix album, as enabled by the People's Champ

    Cash rules everything around me.

    You're always hearing stories about how major labels screw artists, but yesterday afternoon brought a man-bites-dog story straight out of indieville. It's a story about the biggest punk band on earth, the indie label that reportedly ripped them off, and a really big IOU that has resulted in the dudes behind American Idiot looking like a trio of grinches who are downsizing one of the most recognizable brand names in all of pop-punk.

    Night Rally at Great Scott, 06-18-05.

    Drummer Luke sez, "You sho' you want to keep that mullet, Farhad?"

    Strange as it may've seemed that Cambridge's Night Rally were scheduled to play an all-ages outdoor show outside Flat Top Johnny’s, our Green Cab driver sure heard the noise from Broadway and kindly told us to be careful at "the rock concert" before he let us off.
