Grandaddy at Good Records
Grandaddy's Jason and Aaron
As you probably know by now, Grandaddy has decided to call it quits. Their new and final album, Just Like the Fambly Cat, comes out tomorrow, and I highly recommend picking it up. I've been a big fan of the band since seeing them play at the Gypsy Tea Room back in 2000 (The Polyphonic Spree's first show), and I'm pretty sad to see them go.
If you're in Dallas, head out to Good Records tomorrow night to say goodbye to the band. From the Good Records website:
"Jason is doing a few instore performances around the country and we are lucky to be hosting one of them (The day of the album's release date no less). This one is going to be extra special as our good friend Aaron from Grandaddy will be accompanying him on drums. The festivities will be kicking off at 7PM with BBQ, beer, and a musical history of Grandaddy supplied by Deejay CeePee. Jason and Aaron should take the astroturf at around 9 PM."
Don't miss it. Here's a track from the new album:

Thanks to addVice, we have one vinyl copy of the new album from The Streets, The Hardest Way To Make an Easy Living, to give away. I've heard vastly differing views on this record; people seem to either love it or hate it. For me, it falls somewhere between A Grand Don't Come For Free (my favorite Streets record by far) and Original Pirate Material. Which brings us to the contest: What exactly is the hardest way to make an easy living? Leave your answers in the comments.
