Everybody Has A Dark Side

Last Tuesday saw the release of two requisite items; Terrence Malick's The New World on DVD; and the Theater Fire's new album, Everybody Has A Dark Side. The latter will seep into stores around the country and Amazon.com later in the summer, but for now you can order it direct from the label or get it from iTunes. If you head over to their MySpace page, you can hear a few of the new songs - but seriously, this record is worth a blind buy. If you need more convincing, this week's Observer has a great article on them, in which more praises are sung.

Also at the MySpace page are details on the record release party, which is tomorrow night at Good Records, at 7pm. Free admission, free (vegan) food, free drinks, live music. Afterwards, the band will be heading over to the Cavern to headline a second show, in which they'll play the entire album from beginning to end.

If you come to the first show, you'll probably get to hear Cease, the song which (for better or worse) gets its own scene in The Outlaw Son and which will probably be on their next record. At both shows, you'll likely hear These Tears Coud Rust A Train, which has actually ended up in the film as well, after initially being replaced just prior to shooting. When I was editing last week, I realized I need another piece of diegetic music, and back into the cut it went.

wow... i just picked it up at the itunes stores. it sounds fab. the band has come a long way. coincidentally, i've been meaning to get in touch with curtis about doing a honky-tonk type country song for "ciao" (i'm not kidding), and this album gives me a pretty good indication of what he's capable of. what time is the show at cavern?

Country music? In a Yen Tan film?

The show is listed at 9pm, but I imagine they'll be going on closer to 10 or 11.
