You better be able to dance in those leather pants.

Apparently there is an episode of Friends where Ross buys a pair of leather pants to be cool but can't get them on his body. Hilarity ensues. Tune in 10-11pm this week for NEON, L'an2000, Gene Love Jezebel and more.

BONUS ROUND - I'm also covering for Insomnia Sounds Midnight - 1am. I'm not super well-versed in current indie-rock favorites so I'm indulgently looking back to a time of basement shows, short haircuts, Burrito Max and nice kids.
