1. Props to Dr. Cornel West for this interview; w/r/t Obama: “It’s like you’re looking for John Coltrane and you get Kenny G in brown skin.” Yep. http://www.salon.com/2014/08/24/cornel_west_he_posed_as_a_progressive_and_turned_out_to_be_counterfeit_we_ended_up_with_a_wall_street_presidency_a_drone_presidency/

  3. Empty Calories

    It’s no surprise,
    Another big mouth shooting blanks.
    Another talk, without the walk.
    Another ghost outlined in chalk.
    It’s no surprise
    all these empty calories spoil our appetite.
    All bark, no bite.

  4. In lieu of selling merchandise at our show at the Subterranean on Saturday with BROKEN PRAYER, SPLIT FEET & NUBILES, we’re happy to say we’ve invited the fine people from Pure Joy — a brand new nonprofit all-ages accessible music venue and community event/workshop/meeting space opening in Chicago before the end of the year — to use the space that WOULD be used for hawking textiles, to set up and distribute info, sell Pure Joy merch (which, really, you should want more than a PIB t-shirt), and gladly accept your donations.  We’re HUGELY supportive of the Pure Joy mission and you should be too!  Visit them here: http://www.facebook.com/purejoychicago

  5. NEWARK AT LAST! For the first time ever, your Paint It Black will cross the Delaware (border) to play a show in The First State. Laura Stevenson, Priests, Cayetana and Solids join. Advance tickets are on sale right now, naturally cheaper for those lucky enough to attend the University, but are accessibly-priced for the rest of Us. Hope you can make it. http://bit.ly/Y0alzc
