This weekend, a baby may arrive. In addition, I hope to be buying tickets to see the Kings of Leon.

This incredible band will play in Birmingham to a crowd of under 1000 people. Not bad for a group that's sold 3 million albums in the UK. This band from Nashville has a unique (to me at least) sound that reminds me of the "good old days" when bands like Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, and Smashing Pumpkins were revolutionizing pop music for the 90's. There are other bands that I like these days... but these guys are really good. Kind of like The Strokes and 'Skynard in a Mash-UP. Er, sorta.

They were featured in NPR's All Songs Considered in August. An older song is currently being used to sell VW Jettas. These guys are not bad. Along with Beck, these guys have my favorite album for 2005. For those that dare to use Windows Media Player (guilty), their latest videos are on the web site. The semi-hit single"The Bucket" (low res.) is a good example of their chops.
