Summer Girlfriends “Shockwave” Video

Subterranean is hosting a fabulous bill of music tonight featuring Summer Girlfriends, Coffin Pricks, Radar Eyes and Hollows. It’s a record release show for both Coffin Pricks and Hollows. While I have yet to hear Group Home Haircut, the new EP from Coffin Pricks, I can’t stop listening to Vulture, the new record from Hollows. My favorite song might be “Shapeshifter,” but it could be that I’m just a sucker for any song that features a whistle. It’s also a big day for Summer Girlfriends because today the The A.V. Club premiered the new video for “Shockwaves,” the first single from their album Shockwaves which is due out on 6/5. You should go for the music, but maybe you will even have a chance to pick up one of these fantastic Ryan Duggan posters.

Cool Things You Might Have Missed

I spend an inordinate time on the internet and as a result I see the occasional cool thing that I want to share. Here are some of those things:

I really like New Girl and I love Parks and Recreation and two of my favorite characters on those shows have unique styles when it comes to picking up women.

Following in the very successful footsteps of Louis C.K., Aziz Ansari is now selling his latest comedy special for $5. (Aziz Ansari)

2 Broke Girls is an awful television show. Here’s why.

Spend 48 Minutes with Itchy and Scratchy. (via The AV Club)

Will The Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up?

Chow Down (at Chick-fil-A)

Let’s hope the Once musical is as good as the film.

It feels like summer in Chicago so enjoy a great new summer jam from local band Hollows.

Fun! Six Degrees of Black Sabbath.

I also love Friday Night Lights and Mad Men. (via @MoRyan and OHYST)
