Built to Spill via Bradley's Almanac

"Best Built To Spill set I've ever seen? Ayup. Show of the summer? Newt says "Eye-firmative". Show of the year? It's looking good. 2010 has just four full months to change my mind."

There's a great review of the show, plus a set list, pix, mp3 and video. Check it.

and that, my friends, is that

Not only did we get a hurricane for labor day weekend, we got one with commitment issues and an identity crisis. Pete Witham and the Cozmic Zombies would have put on a much better show.

Moving on!

It's today. Today is your last day of summer music in the dunes. At 4pm we have the Incredible Casuals for their last (obviously) show of the summer. This one is Classic Beachcomber with special guests galore. It's like opening night but, you know, at the end.

And then at 10pm it's the Beautiful Girls. The Beautiful Girls have released five independent albums, including this year's SPOOKS. As well as building an audience in Australia, they have toured through the US (10 times), Europe and the UK (5 times), Japan (4 times) and Brazil (2 times). They are total jet-setters. In Japan and Brazil they have had extensive airplay, had their music featured on commercials and had a host of magazine articles written about them. We can't wait to see them live. You can check them out here:

Labor Day is when summer officially ends. It's our last day of business for 2010, so you get what you get and you don't get upset. One thing's for sure, it'll be a great day to hang out in Cahoon Hollow.

So we'll see you here! And then we'll have to rely on facebook, twitter and YouTube for a bit. Summer 2011 will be here before we know it.

Don't forget to pick up your t-shirts, sweatshirts and other Comber whatnot before you head out - you can get it either here at the club or at our super-spiffy store in South Wellfleet (down by the South Wellfleet General Store). We'll be open there for a while longer.

See you this afternoon! Happy end of summer. It's been about the best, ever.

Thanks for that.
