As only he could, Marco is hosting a Birthday party this Saturday Night (June 1) at 4 Corners. Modestly, he’s calling it MarcoStock. 4 bands are playing and 3 of them feature Marco. The fun starts at 8 pm sharp and goes very, very late. The Dead open, everything after that is a surprise…

Where I load 7 albums onto my iPhone, listen to them for a week (or more) and then write some stuff.
Artist: The Benevento Russo Duo
Album: Play Pause Stop
Comments: I’m not going to write about this album because it’s too good. Just listen to the single Play Pause Stop and draw your own conclusions.
Artist: The Black Crowes
Album: Before the Frost
Comments: Boring. Like listening to a Stones cover band. There’s even a “Black and Blue” rip-off sleazy disco song. Gross.
Comments: Very good. I dig Snaith. Dance music that you can’t dance to. Perfect for a bourgeoisie coffee shop.
Album: Carnival Electricos
Comments: This has its moments but a Brazilian costume doesn’t really suit the New Orleans funk maestros. Also, I still miss the Houseman.
Artist: Giorgio Moroder
Album: From Here to Eternity
Comments: Giorgio has a big, creepy mustache and this album sounds like a big creepy mustache using technology to seduce Italian girls. I like it a lot.
Artist: Joey Beltram
Album: Live Mix
Comments: Old school hardcore house. Very awesome. You can hear Joey’s hands manipulating the decks. Energy Flash might be the best thing ever (at least it is right now).
Artist: Sally Shapiro
Album: Disco Romance
Comments: Every single note, every drum beat, every breath “Sally” sings is perfect. Perfect pop music.
