People have been asking if I've been hitting the Sauce, so I know this venue on the busy intersection of Lyndale & Lake is getting huge buzz love. I may have to postpone my attendance because I have two flat tires (those reading my twitters will already know this).

So tonight, The Mood Swings will be at the Sauce, at their CD-releasing party. As with previous Susstones showmania, they are cheap ($5, man!) and features a ton of bands (Two Harbors, First Communion Afterparty, and Blue Sky Blackout are also playing). Between bands, Marc the Guv is handling the DJ spins. Anyway, more bang for your buck seems to be Susstones' motto.

Before you go, some things you should know:
  • Ashley Ackerson is the primary headperson is married to their now-new-bassist Ed Ackerson (see Polara)
  • This is their third album, Recessionista, which came out last Tuesday on Susstones Records.
  • The Current (a Minnesota Public Radio station) has sponsered this event
I will write a full review on Recessionista later, I just wanted to post this up today to let you know about the show tonight. Oh also: @themoodswings, @EdAckerson, and @Susstones.

Brazilian Bebel Gilberto is touring the US, starting in Washington on November 23rd. Her latest album is called All in One and I just read is mostly in Portuguese.

We've previously mentioned her with her "jazz" standard, covering Night and Day - but you may know her as the daughter of João Gilberto, who, along with then-wife Astrud Gilberto, made "The Girl From Ipanema" a world-wide hit (and ultimately made bossa nova music famous).

I am keeping my eye on December 3rd for her appearance at the Dakota Jazz Club in downtown Minneapolis.
