Our birthday celebration commences soon.

Decatur CD is turning three years old soon, and to celebrate, we're planning a little fun. Kicking off the birthday weekend will be a performance by one of our favorite local bands, The Selmanaires. They'll play the store at 7pm on Friday night, in all their rock 'n' roll glory. We'll have free beer for the adults and probably another surprise or two up our collective sleeve, so don't miss out on this event. And if for some reason you haven't heard the band's excellent debut album, Here Come The Selmanaires, by all means, stop by before Friday and we'll play it for you. Then you'll realize we're so excited about this in-store performance. See you Friday!

A birthday party and I can't make it? I'm so bummed.

Wanted to let you know that Addie, Lauren, and I went to see Hot Chip and Jamie Lidell at 1st Avenue in Minneapolis this past weekend for Addie's birthday. Hot Chip was outstanding, and in my opinion stole the show. They just had so much energy.

But don't get me wrong, Jamie Lidell was great too. I've never seen a 30-something white guy with so much soul. It was impressive to see him beatbox, record it, loop it, sing the back-up vocals, record it, loop it, and then sing on top of all of it.

Here are some pictures from the show.

So in other words, I'll be picking up a Hot Chip album next time I'm in Atlanta.

That sounds amazing. So jealous that you've seen Hot Chip. That new record is the hotness. Will see Jamie Lidell soon at The Earl, though.

Happy Birthday dear friends! I hope all is well as you enter pre-K and head towards "big kid's school"!

FYI - Matt stole my thunder with the Hot Chip/Jamie Lidell show. It was my birthday weekend so I was thrilled to go to a show. Absolutely phenomenal! I heard an in studio performance at the local radio show the day of the concert, but that was all I had heard from Hot Chip prior to the show. The energy was unbelievable. Who knew you could still rock a crowd behind 8 synths. And a guitar. And maracas. Maracas always do the trick ;)

Anyway, as hard as it is for me to say, I think Hot Chip stole the show. Even though I am a huge Jamie fan, I was really impressed by the boys from Britain. Any chance I can get a copy of their latest album? I have new credit card info so I'll have to call in with the order.

Bad news = I still miss you guys.
Good news = I should be in Atlanta for New Years. Of course I will stop by. Maybe even bring some Cheerwine.

Peace and hairgrease!
