July 25

Here, hear one of the goodies that those generous and hardworking folks at the Transistor 66 record label sent to us at WCBN. The NXNE Film Festival screened an excellent documentary about Transistor 66 this summer.

Here also, I begin pumping myself up for the Mayer Hawthorne shows that occurred the following day. Both of the shows–Mayer Hawthorne playing with his band The County during lunch hour and his DJ set at LIVE later in the evening–were terrific, for different reasons. Can I just provide noninclusive lists that detail why both shows were great?

A. Show during lunch hour
– People of all ages showed up, including at least one dancing baby
– Synchronized dancing
– The bass player’s afro
– The band set aside time to pose for pictures
– It was a FREE SHOW
– That Sonic Lunch exists
– The historic Michigan Theater
– That Ann Arbor exists like this, for reals
– Chocolates and dancing in the balcony
– Tambourine on his head

B. DJ set at LIVE
– Mayer Hawthorne aka Andrew Cohen aka DJ Haircut
– Dancing, which almost never happens
– Creepy stairwell

One never can emphasize enough this phenomenon of kittens inspired by kittens.
