Happy Tuesday! On the top of my shopping list today is the brand new split from Reading Rainbow and Coasting. Released today by the French label Atelier Ciseaux, the split 7″ includes a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Can’t Stand It” and this tune “Euphoria.”

Word of advice for all you college kids. If you’re thinking of skipping town after finals end this week, don’t. There are a bunch of great shows coming up in the next two weeks including Attia Taylor, Vintage Kicks, Hemming and Hawing, and Velvet Crayon on December 14th. The next few days Reading Rainbow will hit the road with Coasting to visit a few of my favorite places in the Mid-Atlantic Region – Comet Ping Pong in DC, an awesome ping pong/pizza joint a few blocks away from the house I lived in this summer, The Annex in Baltimore where they’ll play with my Bmore favorite Weekends, Death by Audio, and of course Danger Danger Gallery. Reading Rainbow will be playing with both Coasting and Moon Women on December 16th at Danger Danger to celebrate the release of Prism Eyes.

Alright, I gotta get my butt to AKA. Peace xo
