Xiu Xiu Put Their Shoe Shoes On And Walk in This Year’s AIDS WALK SAN FRANCISCO; Are Finishing Up New LP with Guests Michael Gira, Deerhoof’s John Dieterich, and Howard Wiley

I have to be honest about this news article. The only witty thing about it is the fact that I used the pronunciation of Xiu Xiu to make a play-on-words type of joke relating to shoes and walking. If I inserted anymore jokes or wittiness, it'd take away from the plethora of Xiu Xiu news I have to share with you. So, from here on out, this news story won't be funny at all. I promise. Let's begin.

You have to hand it to Xiu Xiu. As a very outspoken band, they definitely do their part when it comes to caring about the world. Really, the only thing that could make their planned AIDS walk even cooler would be if they played a set during the AIDS walk. Wouldn't that be the shit? The walk is taking place this Sunday, July 15, and if you don't live near the San Francisco area and want to help out, you can send checks to:

Oh yeah, one more thing! There's a 7-inch picture vinyl limited to 500 on beatismurder records. It's called Untitled David Horvitz Picture Disc and features three tracks from a 12-year-old cassette recently rediscovered by Jamie Stewart. "Imagine a more reduced Knife Play era Xiu Xiu and you already get an idea about what the 3 tracks on this EP (33rpm) sound like."

Okay, done. For now.
