Aqueduct is Good Music
On Zeebah's recommendation, I bought tickets to see Aqueduct last night. They opened, along with another band, for a group called Pinback, whom I hadn't heard of, although everyone else in the room were clearly gaga for them. I liked Aqueduct best - they were likeable and fun and played a good set. They opened with an exuberant cover of "Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta" by the Geto Boys (aka "That Song from Office Space") which even now makes me grin just thinking of it. Imagine a guy who looks like Jack Black's cousin in a buttoned-up shortsleeved plaid shirt, playing his keyboard and cheerfully singing about "wannabe, gonnabe, [BLEEP]-eatin' [BLEEP]suckin' prankstas" and you just might smile too. They have a new album, I Sold Gold. I just might check it out.
