This week's match-ups are analyzed by tofuscramble411 and our vote for most interesting goes (not surprisingly) to the epic geek battle of AsteroidHead vs. AstroKitty Comics:
"This game comes with high stakes for both teams as the captains have put a friendly wager on the game for the rights to use the prefix “Astro” in the team’s name for the remainder of the season. Astroidhead could become idhead, which would make for a Freudian field day. Astrokitty would simply become a cute, adorable kitty far removed from it’s superhero beginnings." (from Sunday(s) in the Park).
And the "Game of the Week" at Hobbs looks promising as well: 6News vs. Liberty Hall. Who the hell will be manning the desk during the 10:00 broadcast while all the reporters are on the kickball field? We wouldn't mind serving as substitute anchors tonight and bringing the Chronicles live to Lawrence. Call us if needed.
If you're bummed about not being at the Pitchfork Music Fest tonight for the double-whammy of Pavement/Sleigh Bells (which is sure to be the hippest event in the history of hipster music), consider consoling yourself with a Pitchfork-approved band at the Jackpot tonight. Austin's YellowFever receives a perfectly respectable 7.2 from Pitchfork for their self-titled debut.
We don't know much about them except that they are a duo and their music has been termed "haunted house surf music." For us, that's all we need to know. And take a look at them:
And if, like us, you prefer to stay home and avoid the heat, there's something on television tonight that will appeal to geeks and stoners and hippies and hipsters alike: it's the Squidbillies musical on Adult Swim, featuring a song by Larryville legends Split Lip Rayfield (along with other great artists such as Welch and Rawlings and DBT). Pass the bong!
