Weekly Alibi's Guide to the Best CDs of 2003
Rather than promote yet another annoying ballot on which most people in past years have penciled in their votes for Xtina, Britney, Limp Shitstick, and so on and so on, I decided to foist upon you my own picks for the best music of 2003. Undoubtedly, many of you will disagree with my picks and/or be disappointed that your personal faves didn't make this cut. But frankly, after a decade of sifting through literally thousands of CDs looking for a few gems worthy (mostly) of review in this fine publication, I believe I've earned the right to force my opinion on what records to buy down your gullet. That's what I like to think anyway. Without further ado, I proudly present what I honestly believe to be the best music released during the past year.
Gerunding • pop rock
The Sylvan Esso show at the Sunshine Theater is sold out already, which is a mega bummer. But! You can still go to the afterparty, which happens to include a performance by local psych-pop band GERUNDING, who are just as, if not more, cute than Sylvan Esso. Not that it’s a cuteness competition, just saying. It all goes down at the Moonlight Lounge at 11pm on Thursday, March 22. Even if you’re not going to the concert before ... you’re still invited. For ages 21+.
