    Rucker: lord of the Ring.

    A few weeks ago, our old pal Rucker announced he was dive-bombing the mid-week slot at Enormous Room. "I'm taking back Tuesday!" he IM'd us, and just like that, a name for the night was minted. Many of you know Mr. Rucker from his column in the fishwrap and his stint as FNX's local music guy.

    1. We had one of those psychic moments last week hearing T.I.'s "What You Know About That?" on the radio. Although we'd observed on these coordinates back in January that the song borrows its synth chords from "Hey Joe," it had simply never occurred to us that someone could do a mashup of these songs. So anyway, the spark went something like this: "Gee, someone should really try to mash those up," followed seconds later by the thought, "Hmmm .

    The above is from the Enormous Room on Tuesday night, where Mission of Burma's Peter Prescott and Roger Miller manned the decks during the local release party for Burma's new The Obliterati. What did they play? Well, the entire album, for starters, and then some stuff you wouldn't expect.

    In case you haven't been here in a week, it's our birthday . . . almost. We're celebrating tonight at Enormous Room. This post was supposed to be up hours ago, but we started getting hammered at noon, Cami just left to pick up some Suicide Girls, and, well, you're lucky we haven't puked on our keyboards yet. But in honor of OTD's first anniversary, and to remind you of why you love us, we present .

    1. P. Nice and the Audiovandal have been working overtime on what they're calling their first official mixtape -- that is, the first one that they're not giving away for free on the internet, even for a little bit. Or at least that was the plan until we badgered them into giving us a preview. Whereupon instead of just giving us the first five minutes, they turned around and produced a full-on "trailer" -- like they're Clinton Sparks or Kanye West or some shit!

Instead, we've got tracks by the pseudonymous Boston George who wrecks Enormous Room most Saturday nights at Jam Hot (as previously seen in the Phoenix
