Cast and Present

Note to Chris Crisci: The Strokes as “fashion rock”? Since The Appleseed Cast have (or at least HAD) been long considered part of the now-maligned “emo” genre, the old adage “people who live in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones” applies. Also, isn’t the constant wearing of wool hats when it’s not even cold outside (or indoors, for that matter) just a silly hipster fashion trend?

Cast and Present

Note to cutny: The article's writer was referring not to all Lawrence bands that have EVER sold more than 25,000 albums, but merely to those "whose LAST TWO have EACH sold" more than that amount. If you use that standard, I think Mr. King's statement is probably fairly accurate. I don't think there would be more than four or five of them who have done so (like maybe the Get Up Kids, The Anniversary, the aforementioned Appleseed Cast, and maybe one or two other ones). But if you know of several other Lawrence bands that have, feel free to list them here.

Smooth Sales Pitch

I assume that the unnamed, 'spiky-haired', Top-40 singer/songwriter is Howie Day.

Coldplay / Rilo Kiley -- 09/21/05 at Capitol Federal Park @ Sandstone

I'm fairly certain that the "before they get big!" quote was intended as sarcasm and/or dry humor, hence the statement on the 'WIN TICKETS TO THIS SHOW' link that the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater would be "a low-key, intimate setting!" for the show.

The Chris Stamey Experience / Arthur Dodge -- 04/26/05 at Bottleneck

Actually, The dB's were originally based out of North Carolina (not Athens, GA), though they soon relocated to New York City. If you're curious for their full bio, see www.thedbsonline.net/bio.html.
