Here at the thank god it’s Friday rock nyc we are snoozing after a long long rnr hall of fame induction and the closing of 23 hours without sleep followed by three hours of sleep followed by a mad dash to wrap Saturday’s rock nyc! So thank god it’s direct current, the sleepwalking editor’s best friend.

Anything interesting here? Lessee Afghan Whigs, Woods, Eels (Eel’s release too much music, you can never catch up), Rodney Crowell, G Love… Relax, I’m joking about G. Love, Margot & The Nuclear So and Sos, The Pains Of being Pure At Heart, Neil Young… Neil Young? Apparently it’s that one with jack White or something
