Pissed Jeans

Last heard tackling ice cream and scrapbooking in song, Pissed Jeans singer Matt Korvette has moved on to lip rings, R-rated movies, and sleeplessness on the new King of Jeans. The Sub Pop–signed Pennsylvania quartet has welcomed Pearls and Brass guitarist Randy Huth on bass, but not much else has changed. Pissed Jeans persist in writing gnashing, bluesy anthems around Korvette's mundane and often deadpan-funny lyrics, which seem out of place against such a heavy backdrop. When a song resorts to sluggish pacing, the effect is all the more unsettling.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
