This is a public service announcement for the Berkeley-area readers: the excellent band Pretty Girls Make Graves will be playing a free show on Lower Sproul Plaza at UC Berkeley, on February 16. They would be a great band to see two days earlier if you are single and bitter, but they're playing Moscow, Idaho on that day so that's not so helpful.

I almost wish I didn't know about this, so I could have the experience of walking through Sproul on the 16th and thinking, "Hey, that sounds like PGMG... holy shit!" But more likely I'd just miss it entirely if I didn't know about it, so it's probably better this way.

I remember seeing No Doubt on Lower Sproul as a freshman. Man, that was awesome.

Hmmm...I saw No Doubt at Cornell. Their music reminds me so much of Missing Persons. Sadly, Gwen's solo stuff is (much) less up my alley. (Rich Girl amuses me in limited doses, but there No Doubt was very new wavy, which pleased me greatly.)

The title of PGMG is highly amusing. The girls making graves must have chosen to do that instead of having careers in mathematics. Too bad for me.

Yeah, it's a great name for a band. They actually took it from the title of a song by The Smiths.
