Return to Spiderland 

My daily dose of Pitchfork Media alerted me this morning to exciting news: Slint will be playing in Chigago March 24th, a Saturday. I feel an uncontrolable urge for a serious road trip to see the kings of post-rock whisper and screech in person. Maybe Steve Albini will be in the audience! Heck, maybe he'll sit in for a couple of numbers. I love the sinister quiet sound of this band- they sneak up on you whispering mesmerizing tales and then once you let your guard down they thwack your head with the hidden hatchet as the volume buries your cry for help. Sorry, getting kinda florid there- I just entertain myself...
