Monday: Times New Viking/Love Is All/Crystal Stilts at The Summit (Columbus,OH)

This week, Monday's arrival brings with it not only Jack Rabid's new podcast, but also about the best damn triple-bill I can remember seeing in Columbus! Hometown heroes, Times New Viking, will top a bill that also includes Sweden's Love Is All and Brooklyn's Crystal Stilts (whose Alight of Night landed in the fourth spot on my Top 10 Albums of 2008 list). This should be a delightfully noisy affair that is not to be missed.

Download: "Call And Respond" by Times New Viking
Purchase: Stay Awake EP and other Times New Viking releases.

Download: "Make Out, Fall Out, Make Up" by Love Is All
Purchase: A Hundred Things To Keep Me Up At Night and other Love Is All releases.

Download: "Crystal Stilts" by Crystal Stilts
Purchase: Alight of Night and other Crystal Stilts releases.

Sidenote: This show is being brought to us by Ben Co Presents. I haven't had the good fortune to meet the guy behind this operation yet (Mr. Ben Co, if you happen to stumble across this post, drop me a line), but he is doing Columbus a great service right now by booking a slew of good shows (recent ones include Darker My Love, Marnie Stern, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, The Constantines, and Blitzen Trapper, to name a few). All music loving Columbusites should bookmark his website in order to stay on top of what he'll be serving up next. Since the death of Little Brothers the number of good shows in Columbus has definitely gone down, but it seems that Ben Co and The Summit are finally providing a remedy to this problem!
