Congratulations to everyone for making it through the First Great Heat Wave of 2012, as it will probably come to be known in whatever history books manage to get written between now and the point when catastrophic climate change and ecological collapse force humankind to regress to a precivilized state such that history books aren’t good for anything but chucking at the heads of neighboring tribespeople from whom you’re trying to steal pre-apocalypse cans of Spaghetti-Os. Don’t worry too much, though—scientists say this inevitable destiny is still several decades away.

In the meantime we have live music to distract us, and Soundboard has several notably distracting suggestions.
