Pick a day


Friday, April 26, 2013's Lowdown

Sigh. Why type words about Madison-based band Cribshitter when the image above and the video below exist. Ah, well. Reveling in the absurd, the group plays sunny tuba-and-glockenspiel-assisted pop while singing earnestly about love, poop and graphic sex acts. 

If that's your joy you can get some of it Friday at Jambalaya with local psychjammers Children of the Sun in support.
