Panda & The Freak

The Giants will try to win the National League pennant at home tonight, as Tim Lincecum matches up with Philadelphia's Roy Halladay in a rematch of Game 1. San Francisco won that game 4-3 -- and lead the series 3-1.

In 2008, The Baseball Project -- Steve Wynn, Scott McCaughey, Peter Buck, and Linda Pitmon -- released Volume 1: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails, an album of baseball songs. (Here they are playing "Ted Fucking Williams".)

They have been releasing new songs as they write and record them at Broadside Ballads ($1 each). "Panda & The Freak" was recorded about two months ago at Maxwell's in New Jersey.

The Giants game last night was one of the better baseball games I've seen in awhile. Of course, I am a Giants fan as well as a Sox fan.

Ha! I've been to Maxwell's. Its on Washington Street in Hoboken. I was there in '98 but I can't recall who I saw there though. Modest Mouse?

Anyway, funny. Thanks for the memory.

Maxwell's is a great place. We went there several times in the late 80s.
