    The waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy izzzzzz a trap! The waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy izzzzzz ahhhhhhhhhhhhh trap!

    That’s the unholy expression that Big Bear frontwoman Jordyn Bonds had last night when she hit the stage precisely at 11:30 at the MidEastUp—all stretched jaw muscles and werewolf howl. Damn, that girl can wail! During one breakdown, Bonds fingered the tambourine with the nervous energy of a kid chewing on hoodie strings while the rest of her bandmates walloped and slammed in place.

    Before.

    After.

    If you're looking for Pitchfork apologists, you'll have to surf elsewhere. But the state of rock-crit-dom is getting on towards ridiculous when people are calling LATECOMER ** at someone who reviews the album the day it comes out. Just sayin'. But having said, how is it all these folks got room to talk shit when they have so much Sufjan Stevens dick in their mouths? Kid strums a nice guitar, but indiefolk collectively needs to get a grip.

    We heard your band are selling their guitars and buying samplers. We heard your band are selling their synthesizers and buying guitars. We heard your bands are screwed, because Shutesbury-to-Brooklyn transplants the Mobius Band already have next-wave indietronica on lockdown. Added last-minute to the Do Make Say Think bill, they'll test-drive songs from their upcoming The Loving Sounds of Static (Ghostly) downstairs at the Middle East, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge 617.

    2. Now that Corin Tucker's got our back, we'll admit it: we're gay for Glenn Danzig. And we don't even mind that his songs for Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison and the one he wrote for the "Power and Fury Orchestra" are off limits at tonight's "Chords and Discourse: the Music of the Misfits." A gang of grizzled Allston vets assembled by Antler's Tim Catz will try to do a better job of unplugging "Skulls" than Evan Dando did back in the day; and with any luck it won't hurt as much as the Nutley Brass's new, Jerry Only-approved Fiend Club Lounge (Ryko).

    1. You're going to see Mr. Airplane Man at the Kirkland tonight, right? In case you missed it, Chris Rucker got an update on Magaret's new arrival, due in November: no, it's not an album. Though she's working on one of those, too: "I actually have been more creative and writing more songs since I got pregnant than I have in a long time."

    Big Bear: doin' thangs in 1998.


    Big Bear: doin' thangs in 2005.

    1. Big Bear may be the most colossal "metal" band in town right now, but since that's just one of the many groups their members play in, you'll have to excuse 'em for not killing shit more often. (Hell, when we saw one of these groups a couple weeks back, guitarist Joel Roston briefly forgot which band he was in.

    With Perfect Pitch Black firmed up for fall release on Hydra Head, but drummer J.R. Connors out of the country and out of commission, prospects for a Cave In tour were looking bleak. Until yesterday, when Stephen Brodsky stepped off a plane from Japan and sent us the following big, big news:

    Cave In headed into rehearsal studio for three weeks this month with CONVERGE'S BEN KOLLER ON DRUMS.

    Tough to say what the kids are sweating more this summer: the keytars and homemade Elvis jumpsuits that've made Leslie and the LY's Boston's #1 kitsch-hop rap attraction (think, like, Gravy Train!!!! meets Har Mar on the Home Shopping Network circa 1984) or Leslie's Bedazzler-enhanced gem-sweater collection

    1. R. Kelly album out today with all five parts of "Trapped in the Closet," which assiduous blog-surfers will already have downloaded last month. Now you can also watch the 15-minute-video miniseries, included as a bonus DVD. MTV's also got it online. Warning: it's on their new super-broadband site, which we had zero luck viewing.

    We know, we know, you really love your iPod. You loved it so much you decided to fuck it. But did you really have to talk to it, too?

    About that long-rumored iPod/Motorola hybrid mp3 phone: there has been speculation that Apple would unveil the phone as early as yesterday, or perhaps at a media event this week. Some background:

    Photos now over here.

    Thanks to everyone who came out and did the damn thing with Caps + Jones + Bananas on Friday night at Enormous Room. The out-of-town squad murdered Central Square, and our gal Jasanne helped us dull the pain with a gingery concoction that was still unnamed when OTD left the building urrrrly, thereby missing some GNR madness later on.

    TONIGHT: Details on Muzik Mafia taking over Pops.

    OTD PLAYS DEVIL'S ADVOCATE: It was easy for political-leftist, pop-contrarian music snobs to get on the bus for that kindler-gentler hippie-shitkicker schtick when Big & Rich came up -- and it was even easier for actual rednecks, who could nod in the general direction of Gretchen's "Redneck Woman" to prove dey still some good ol' boys, gawdamn.

    The moment that killed Live 8 dead was that part when Madonna, in London with gospel choir, got fixated on a line from her song "Music": "Music/makes the people/come together." Of course she's got to sing it over and over: SHE'S MAKING A POINT HERE GODDAMMIT. Demanding that everyone clap to it -- like, getting MAD AT the Golden Circle crowd not standing up for it.
