East Bay - Drake's newest location opened in Oakland on Broadway and 23rd in the old auto row building. It's awesome. You should go drink 7x70 every day.
I saw them open for someone back in 09/10, as well. No Age or Ceremony or Hunx and his Punx or They Shoot Horses Don't They...something that like. Probably at the Hemlock Tavern. Maybe at...
Finally a use for all those food photos that people took over the last half decade
Apparently, Spotify has the Deluxe edition. Metro's on none of the bonus material.
Future's DS2 is a handful good songs (all produced by Southside) and a ton of sub-mixtape fodder (spoilers: "...this beat is so Metro") that shouldn't have been released as an album. Metro Boomin...
That album isn't without a couple good songs, though. "Adorno" and "Oceans" are both fun listens. I kinda wish that they would rework some of that old material or just reintroduce a song or two...
Wilco's new album is out. It's free. http://wilcoworld.net/
Wilco - Star Wars
I've been under the impression that PC Music is audio-HipsterRunoff. Sounds like I was correct.
Early access. Most bands send review site a link to stream their album a week or two before the release date.
Justin Vernon basically has put Bon Iver on perma-hiatus based on the Grantland interview:
Miguel's new album is so pleasantly strange. I shall be the first to dub it "LSD'angelo".
Yup. They're announcing a west coast tour.
Nope. As long as you didn't have any issues with the setup prior to the switch, the switch shouldn't do anything besides create additional physical ports.
assuming your router handles everything: unmanaged. $20 - http://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Unmanaged-Gigabit-GREENnet-TEG-S50g/dp/B001QUA6R0
edit: also, put devices that will use more bandwidth,...
An A-Z show means--at most--only one song from i. Bummer. "Zebra" is a better closer than "Zombie Boy", so I hope he doesn't flip a coin for that one.
Replacements sold out quickly, as well.
Built to Spill is opening.
Liturgy is opening for all the Lightning Bolt west coast shows. Awesome.
Had a couple Youngers during lunch at Toronado. They're not making a big deal out of it, so their kegs might last the rest of the day.

Robin decided be an undergrad at Columbia instead of touring in a band.
Here's a strange possibility:
Polaris (of Pete & Pete fame):

04/43 - Portland, OR @ Aladdin Theatre
I have the most uncanny knack for being a day late on checking on this.
Jenny Hval & Susanna's Meshes of Voice is bonkers and should make its way on to several of your lists.
Probably Acid Mother's Temple or a similar band that has to get their P-1 Visa half a year in advance of touring.
11/24 - mr. Gnome with Young Tongue @ Bottom of the Hill SF
It's a real event. It's just taking place in Chicago.
With the way they wasted his set in 2008? No thanks. Hopefully he does a few US shows with sets longer than 45 minutes.
The Austerity Program album is pretty great. Here's what I suspect is the single:
1. Ought - More Than Any Other Day
2. The Austerity Program - Beyond Calculation
3. St Vincent - St Vincent
4. Spoon - They Want My Soul
5. Liars - Mess
6. Swans - To Be Kind
7. clipping -...

If you want to be super frugal, there's a ton of cheap AirBNB options in the area.
Checking in. Brand New were the Macklemore of that mid-2000s alt-emocore phase. The greatest trick The Devil And God Are Raging Inside ever pulled was convincing some people that it wasn't garbage.
