BOY, I SURE AM GLAD I GOT TO SEE CLOUDS BEFORE THEY BROKE UP
The general consensus around the palatial MetalSucks Mansion is that the Cave In reunion is fucking awesome. With the members now focused on the main project, it stands to reason that the side-projects that emerged in the band’s wake would lie dormant. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing (the Stove Bredsky disc was fucking awful), I’m pretty devastated to hear that Clouds will essentially call it a day after one last show at the end of the month.
A brief entry on the band’s MySpace page pretty much confirms the unfortunate news:
yep…last CLOUDS show until who knows when, maybe ever. Times they are a changin’…some people are moving and some are just moving on. Come out and wish Jimmy good luck in the Big Apple. “New York City is the place to go”…come on, you know the words. Who loves the Meatmen? No? How about Fear? “New York’s alright…if you like art and jazz!” Also…it’ll be Johnny’s birthday at midnight…buy that little handsome bastard a shot, willya? Adam and Q will be there, too. Buy us all shots. Thanks for all the laughs
So if you happen to be anywhere near the Beantown area, be sure to hit up The Middle East Upstairs on July 30th. I got to see them perform last month in Brooklyn, so I can at least take solace in that. Let’s hope that Caleb Scofield continues Zozobra though, because that shit fuckin’ slays!
