Atomic Drawers to the Rescue

July 1, 2009
Sometimes, when Atomic Drawers plays Red Rocks, the band will just go down and hang out in the crowded lot scene pre-show and just get weird with the myriad of fans.  Nobody notices that it's us, because we have sunglasses on usually and there's just so much going on everywhere.  It really does keep us grounded, very "down with the people."

Sometimes, when Atomic Drawers plays Red Rocks, the band will just go down and hang out in the crowded lot scene pre-show and just get weird with the myriad of fans. Nobody notices that it's us, because we have sunglasses on usually and there's just so much going on everywhere. It really does keep us grounded, very "down with the people."

With the biggest entertainment news in the past several years hitting the airwaves this past week, Billy and I have decided that Enuff-Z’nuff.

We need to get back out there NOW and try to fill the sudden void created by the tragic release of yet another technically-proficient but soullessly bland Wilco album.  The critics call it Dad Rock and as an actual dad myself, and thereby a person qualified to make the call, I fear that the critics could be right on this one.  Stupid critics. 

We know we can help everybody feel better about the tragedy by getting back on stage and giving the person or couple of persons in attendance what he or she, or even possibly they, want(s):

Atomic Drawers.

Out-of-practice, out-of-shape, and quite possibly out-of-hand. We’re doing this on two days of half-ass practices but after two months off, we have got to get back out there for the good of the national mood, and so do YOU.

It’s the middle of summer!  Sun is shining, birds are singing.  Come to Lincoln’s Roadhouse tonight and have a beer and a fried shrimp po-boy and hang out. Unless you’re scared of hangin’ out?

Remember this if nothing else:  there ain’t nothing wrong with hangin’ out.

We’ll probably go on around 9:00 and give you what you need to take your mind off of all of this sadness.

Then, on Friday, we’ll all go see Wilco together at Red Rocks and hope that most of the set comes from everything from Uncle Tupelo through A Ghost is Born.

Because while it will lack the overall edginess of an Atomic Drawers gig, it’s still a big fun Red Rocks show with a band that has it in them to do a great show.  Just like us?   Mmmm, probably not. 

But it is summer and Lincoln’s is great on Wednesdays regardless. See y’all this evening.

    I love the new Wilco.

    But then again, I’m a dad.

    Damn.
