Sound Advice 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & Klinko de Mayo & r & We always expect Cinco de Mayo -- following the upstanding tradition of vaguely ethnic excuses to get piss drunk (see also: St. Patrick's Day, Baumgarten's infamous "Croatian Beer, Serbian Stripper" theme parties, Oktoberfest, etc.) -- to breed more than its fair share of legal action. The strange thing this year, though, is that court was in session before the party even started. In late April, we got a call from Milonga saying they'd be playing Casa de Oro on North Division. Then, we got an e-mail saying the city had shut down the outdoor party. The e-mail came with a vow to take action. We applauded but didn't hold out much hope. Then, just this week, we got still another e-mail indicating that the folks at the ol' House of Gold took their beef to court -- and won.


Good work, fellas. Keep those lawyers on retainer, though. We're probably going to need them.





Roundup: Friday, May 5 & r & If the Casa De Oro / Milonga pairing doesn't suit you, you can always hit any one of the other Latin-flava'd parties, including Los Vigiles at the Season Ticket, Melefluent at Las Palmitas in Coeur d'Alene, Joe Lewis and the Jazz Cats at Max Lounge or -- perhaps the most absurdly intriguing -- DJs James Pants and Supervillain spinning at Mootsy's.





Nammy Hegemony & r & Jim Boyd has once again scored Native American Grammy nominations for his latest release, Them Old Guitars, this time garnering four. FOUR! He'll compete for Record of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Best Pop/Rock Recording and Artist of the Year at the awards, which take place June 8 at the Hard Rock in Hollywood ... Florida.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
