Listen to World’s First Flying Machine, See them Saturday

In celebration of the Aug. 22 house show at 803. W. Nevada, World's First Flying Machine has decided to let y'all hear a track they've been sitting on all summer. "Billboard" was recorded with Matt Talbott at Great Western Record Recorders ages ago. The track will be on the band's debut, The House You're Living In, coming out dangerously soon.

August 22, 6 p.m., 803 W. Nevada — My Dear Alan Andrews, Morgan Orion, World's First Flying Machine, Enlou, Exercise. For Free!

Paul Kotheimer talks about tonight’s “weird” show at Iron Post

Tonight at the Iron Post, Pittsburgh's Weird Paul Rock Band, featuring lo-fi veteran Paul Petroskey, and Champaign-Urbana's Duke of Uke and His Novelty Orchestra and Paul Kotheimer will converge at 8 p.m. to offer an odd Wednesday night of music. Cover is TBA, but likely a pittance. If you're into ephemera, or even just cheesy jokes about wine coolers, it might be right up your alley on a humid evening. Kotheimer, veteran C-U activist and musician, talked to me on the phone Tuesday night about the show:
