David Bazan Living Room Show

Indie rock superhero David Bazan is playing two shows in Duluth on his current living room tour.  [EDIT: Both shows are sold out! No tickets will be available at the door. Thanks!]

Tischer Creek – 6:30am

Fiber in Duluth – What’s the haps?

Since this summer, I’ve seen several large, blaze orange coils of fiber optic cable being installed throughout the city. As of today I spotted some by Holy Rosary and up near Home Depot on Central Entrance.

Does anyone know if our Google overlords are trying to pull a fast one on us? Were area ISPs startled into actually building out their networks up here? Please tell me I’ll be browsing the Internet at satisfyingly fast speeds in the near future.

Duluth Handyman/woman?

Instead of exclusively perusing Craigslist, I thought I’d put a question to the friendly community of PDDers.

Can anyone please recommend a handyman and/or woman who could help me with my inability to properly execute seemingly simple home repair tasks?

Two new Lion or Gazelle EPs

Lion or Gazelle are pleased to present two new free EPs on their bandcamp site for your immediate and free enjoyment:

House Upon the Sand

Pom Pom

Daytrotter in Wrenshall?

Why isn’t anyone talking about this? I ran across it by accident and I think it’s awesome. (Though I’ll sadly be out of town.)

Barnstormer 4 | Tuesday, April 26
Featuring Sondre Lerche, Guards, and the Romany Rye
Free Range Film Festival Barn in Wrenshall

Fundraiser for Rachel Sandell

For more information, including a list of silent auction items and donors, head to the Facebook page for the event.

Lion or Gazelle – Bad Thoughts, Farewell

After a distinctly long hiatus (for us), Lion or Gazelle is pleased to bring you our newest EP, Bad Thoughts, Farewell. Free streaming and/or downloads on the Bandcamp page.

Yet another new Lion or Gazelle EP

Lion or Gazelle is celebrating Friday by offering another new EP, Teaching Pilots English. This is a collection of some early four track demos that trend a little more on the experimental side than the previous three releases. Stream it or download it for free on the Bandcamp site.

New Lion or Gazelle EP

After an interminable two weeks since their last EP, Lion or Gazelle present their latest, Let’s Do Milli Vanilli Dance Moves & Forget About This Shit. As usual, downloads and streaming are free from the Bandcamp page or on Facebook.

Also, the band will be on 91.3 KUWS tonight at 10pm with Walt Dizzo. Tune in to hear some live tunes and an enlightening interview.

I’m Your Doctor

Lion or Gazelle released its second EP-thing today. I’m Your Doctor is streaming and available as a free download on the Bandcamp site.

Feed Me Blood & Rocks

Lion or Gazelle’s debut EP, Feed Me Blood & Rocks, is now available for free on its Bandcamp page. Enjoy.

Volunteers Needed – 7/10!

The Morley Heights playground project is moving forward quickly! On Saturday, July 10, our equipment will be delivered to the park and we will need plenty of volunteers to help us assemble it.

We are planning two assembly shifts for the 10th. The first will run from 8am to noon and the second from 1pm to 5pm. No previous construction experience necessary – we just need lots of people power.

If you want to help out, please email me (mickeypearson @ gmail.com) and indicate your availability for that weekend.

Many thanks for your interest and help!
