I'm really enjoying the new Captain Chaos and Pat the Bunny.  Anyone else?

And if you either of you actually read this board any more, then thanks so much for staying true and continuing to do what you do..
A few shows at the Death Star in Silver Spring, MD come to mind:

I remember seeing Potboiler and Lemuria open for Latterman.

Also, Delay was really catchy and friendly one time.  I forget who the "headliner" was.

Also, this banjo-player/singer called Adam Frumhoff opened for Paul Baribeau once.  His music and presence was so intense, and resonated with me way more with me than Paul's.  I immediately bought his two CD's, which I still continue to listen to, although I've since lost one of them :(  Anybody know anything about him or where I can get his music?  He was from Arizona...I haven't heard anything since that show in 2006 or so...

I have a huge crush on Erin Bernet. Not sayings a good news person, just dreamy.

The new Good Riddance and Millencolin are both really inspiring, consistently catchy albums.  The last time I've been genuinely excited about new epifat music in at least a decade.
If you go with a strong, critical mind you'll be fine.  If you're insecure about getting brainwashed I'd say you have some inner work to do regardless...

That said, I grew up in a culture of zionism so it wasn't hard for me to recognize and see through the propaganda during the trip.  Zionists have subtle ways of equating Israeli nationalism with Judaism, but just don't fall for that.  If anything I'd say go and be outspoken and critical because your voice is needed during that kind of program and the other people on the trip will pay attention to you.  My trip was actually lucky enough to visit the Knesset and meet with a member who I got into a nice debate with.  The weirdest, most uncomfortable part was how it was a free trip and almost everyone except me seemed so professional and elite.  But I was a younger punk in those days....If you're at all spiritually inclined, the Western Wall is a spot with ridiculous concentrations of energy, and if you're historically or aesthetically inclined, Jerusalem is an incredible city to visit.

It's good to see the reality of a military state, and have opportunities to hangout out with local Israelis, which the trip certainly provides.  Keep an open mind.  Even if the trip helps you feel more connected to the Jewish people that's not necessarily a bad thing.  Just know what you're getting into beforehand...

I'll post some more contemporary kind of stuff.

The guitarist from Wilco is a really awesome jazz player:

This album is pretty cool if you're into guitars:

Brad Mehldau and Pat Metheny are both majorly influential innovators, although Metheny certainly isn't without his cheesy side:

Here's something that was posted last week.  The last two Bad Plus albums were really awesome:

And for something more classic and relaxing you can't go wrong with Chet Baker, either singing or playing trumpet:

Or this album.  Bossa nova:

I feel kind of bad for posting a bunch of white dudes, but I'm not too deep into jazz and everybody I listen to has already been mentioned.  When I lived in LA I heard a bunch of really cool contemporary Mexican jazz on the radio, but I don't remember any names...

The times are a changing pretty rapidly these days, but stay punk, don't take crap, and never stop rebelling against mainstream cultural conditioning!  It takes more effort when you're too old to go to diy shows or whatever every weekend, but really, however you do it, it'll help you.  Not everything is your fault, so be careful what you internalize...Stay strong pixers <3

Even though I've lived in LA and the Bay, Santa Cruz is still where it's at in my opinion....Charlie Hong Kong ( has awesome vegan food and atmosphere, and there's a sweet vegan diner downtown, which also has a location in Berkeley (  Also, SC is great if you have any interest in alternative healing or anything like that.

It doesn't look like much, but this website: is a pretty legit way to find language partners online and in real life.
