Thirsty Thursdays: 16

Sorry for the late post everyone, I was attending a Ben Kweller show here in Jacksonville. It was fantastic albeit a little awkward, as I went alone. Concerts are meant to be enjoyed with friends, and the more the merrier, but that didn't stop me from having a good time. The opening act, Tim Fite, blew me away and in my opinion, stole the show, but I'll save him for a feature in a future post. Kweller's set was great and was just what I expected. He came out and warned the crowd that he had been drinking, but you couldn't tell from his performance. He also proclaimed his love for country music and announced that after the tour in September, he plans on going to Austin, Texas to RECORD A COUNTRY ALBUM!!! "Don't worry guys, I'll record a rock album too." Oh believe me Ben, I'm not worried one bit. Your rendition of Roger Mills' "Chug A Lug" was stella. Here's a live recording of it in Toronto from a little while back. Also, be sure to check out his latest self-tiled album.

Also, here's a track from the "Stubbs The Zombie: The Soundtrack" that's a Ben Kweller cover of the 1950s classic "Lollipop". It's charming and quaint.

Derrick Comedy is a popular sketch comedy group, best known for YouTube shorts like BRO Rape: A Newsline Investigative Report and Keyboard Kid. Well, tucked away on their official website is a little tidbit of musical tomfoolery known as "Whatcha Gonna Do With The Groove?". Reportedly performed by The Electronix, this humorous dance song attempts to find a use for 'the groove', which, in my opinion, is powering this song. Check it.

Also, Donald Glover from Derrick Comedy goes by 'mc DJ' for his musical outings. He's got two albums out and several remixes of bands like The White Stripes and Feist. Most of this electronic DJ experimentation is available for free download on his blog. It's great stuff, and I'll go ahead and post a highlight here from his latest album, "Love Letter From An Unbreakable Bottle" which was put up for download back in March.

Alright, that should do it for tonight. Enjoy.
