Scenester Picks of the Day: Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Twin Sister, and Farmer's Ball Pre-Party / Plus, Missed Connections and Fuzzy's Tacos

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart set the blogosphere a-buzz awhile back when their self-titled debut "landed with a bookish and fuzzy aesthetic" (Pitchfork). But are they still hip after their sophomore album? Pitchfork assure us they are: Belong gets at 8.2:

"Pains nudge themselves slightly out of their comfort zone, replicating the motorbike roar of JAMC on "Girl of 1,000 Dreams" or the bliss of My Bloody Valentine on "Strange."

Personally, we liked them better when they more bookish and fuzzier, but tonight's Bottleneck gig promises to be a scenester-worthy show nonetheless, in no small part due to opener Twin Sister. Refresh your memory by looking at our recent post about them.

And if you're not willing to shell out for Bottleneck pricing, stop by the Jackpot for the Farmer's Ball pre-party with previous winners Hospital Ships, Nezbeat, and Will Nots.


We haven't showcased a local Craigslist "Missed Connection" in awhile (they are surprisingly dull), but here's one that we enjoy. The woman in question was spotted at 715:

"Your hair was of auburn red crazy corkscrews, your smile and eyes are infectuous, and your olive skin makes my mouth wet with lust. I'd love an afternoon to give you the pleasures of the universe!"


Fuzzy's Tacos is officially in business on Mass. Street, opening up a wide world of new innuendo opportunities for Chip. According to their Facebook, they also have (yesterday at least) $1.50 PBR schooners. This place may be hipper than we thought! And they open at 7:00 am for those who like to "go downtown" and "eat out" early in the morning. One of their logos is a fish that says "Eat me."

Chip: "This place is going to be an endless source of comic gold!"

i feel like the woman in question of the missed connection is pretty easy to guess if you're ever spent any time at 715.

It was me in a wig. Sorry about the confusion.

But will Fuzzy's Tacos oust Biemer's BBQ from the throne of raunch?
