The Look Ahead: Low Anthem at Fitz, Something Borrowed Screening and Paulaner at Feast
Before we start coming down on poor Monday, let’s put this day into context. Osama Bin Laden is presumably dead, nuttiness over the Royal Wedding continues, the prelude of dinners to Texas Beer Fest has begun, it’s Tuesday in Japan, and we’re all at work, earning our keep. Does this all have any effect on our first day back on the job? Yes and no. On to things a wee bit closer to home.
For this hectic Monday, The Low Anthem might just be the mellow cure. The video up there speaks for itself, but, just in case you’re like me and you’re too lazy to click on it, I’ll try to explain the sound. A cross between Yo La Tengo, Bob Schneider circa “I’ve Seen the End of the World and It Looks Like,” and maybe Sufjan Stevens if he sang higher and carried his notes longer. Wrong? Maybe. Bring your argument after you go to the show tonight.
Advanced Screening of Something Borrowed at Edwards Greenway Grand Palace 24
IMDB puts it like this, “Friendships are tested and secrets come to the surface when terminally single Rachel falls for Dex, her best friend Darcy’s fiancé.” The trailer above, puts it like that. We’ll probably see it when it comes out officially, it looks raucous. Right?
Feast and Paulaner Beers as Part of the Texas Beer Fest
Sure Tea and Richard gave Paulaner beers low marks some months back, but hey, they were in last place amongst those less than favorable beers. That counts for something. In any case, we’d gladly empty out our penny and nickle filled Paulaner mugs and fill them with the stuff of the Minim friars the next time brats and sauerkraut find their way to our breakfast table. And while Feast ain’t German, we’re pretty sure any dish they concoct will also accompany Paulaner quite nicely.
