I am in London this week and Wi-Fi access is spotty at best.  I thought Wi-Fi was complimentary at most hotels these days; I would rather be without television and phone than the internet.

Alas No Axis – February 12, 2010

Search and Restore is having a one year anniversary party at the Bleecker Theatre and Alas No Axis is playing.

Alas No Axis is Jim Black, Skuli Sverrison, Chris Speed, and Hilmar Jensson.  Tickets are for sale through Brown Paper Tickets, not sure if it will sell out, but the opportunity to see this band doesn’t happen very often. The band’s fifth album, Houseplant, is out now and you can check out some of the tracks on Jim’s myspace.

NOTICE – From the Management

Posted in Uncategorized on 12/06/2009 by mandatoryattendance

I generally decide to see a particular show weeks in advance and it seems like this website would be much more useful if people could plan ahead.

So, I am going to start posting the daily shows on Sundays.  Hopefully this will give people a chance to know what is coming up days in advance and will free up some of my time to write spotlight posts.
