PREVIEW
The Streets

June 7 – Showbox
by Ashley Graham
6.4.06

Mike Skinner and I have a few things working against the development of our relationship. Most importantly, I hate hip hop. I hate “beats” and “raps.” I can’t handle it. Secondly, I hate it when solo artists use names otherwise deemed for a group of artists (i.e. “The Russian Futurists,” “The Streets,” “Everclear”—ignore the jab). Then, I’ve heard Skinner hates short brunettes. Bastard. What? Oh. So it seems the hates all coming from my end. Horrible.

To make up for it, I’ll recommend you go to see The Streets on June 7. Wait? What’s that you say? There’s a WIG show on June 7 at the Funhouse with Umber Sleeping, A Gun That Shoots Knives, Seaweed Jack and Trip the Light starting at 9pm and costing just $5? The bastard dared to have a show the same day as me? More haaate. Forget it, man, I’d hit up that WIG show.
