Here at TMT HQ, we always celebrate albums we like. We always celebrate with cupcakes. When we heard Bill Orcutt’s free-blues guitar on How The Thing Sings last year (TMT Review), Ze Pequeno baked funfetti cupcakes with blue frosting. When we heard Chris Corsano’s improvisational drum work on Cut back in June (TMT Review), E. Nagurney baked chocolate chip cupcakes with sprinkles. Orcutt made our list of faves last year, and Corsano’s prospects are looking bright this year.
When we heard that Chris Corsano would be playing a string of shows with Bill Orcutt, Squeo ran right out and bought a piñata filled with Pokemon cards. Check out the dates below; I have to see if anyone will trade me their holographic Gyarados.
