Here’s a fantabulous assortment of Volume One website goods that you may have missed last week.
Enjoy your Sunday, one and all.
Listen up as I dole out the truth: As far as melon-based humor goes, it just don’t get no bigger than friggin’ Gallagher, baby. With over 100 shows per year and countless watermelons destroyed, comedy legend Gallagher, best known for his prop comedy with his Sledge-O-Matic hammer, aims for a smashing time at the Ramada Convention Center in downtown Eau Claire. The show starts at 8pm, and tickets cost a juicy$23.50/$30.50, but hey, as I said, it’s friggin’ Gallagher.
Also on Saturday: Planetarium Show, Brian Bethke + Leiah Webb, No Better Cause, Barefoot in the Park, Rudy's Holidaze Reunion, and Desolatevoid + Marked by Failure + The Parrish + Electric Wagon Burner.
A Farms show is more than music. The energy expelled by these two musicians is equal or greater to that of the raging coal fire powering your computer right now. Drummer Andy Todryk’s arms beat like a turbine, leaving your eyes (and our camera lenses) a blur where limbs should be present. Nothing about this session is clean, crisp, or safe. It’s not supposed to be, because where’s the fun in that?

The Chippewa Herald’s got the scoop on Mark McIlquham’s 3-room, $3,000 ice fishing shack out on lake Wissota – which is available to rent. From Chippewa.com:
There’s even a high-def flat screen TV (local channels only). The shack is heated by propane, powered by “a 12-volt battery recharged by a 20-watt solar powered trickle charger, with a 750-watt inverter providing the 110 power.” McIlquham also installed hinged trap doors for, you know, ice fishing. Unfortunately, the Chippewa Herald doesn’t provide many pictures.
