Title: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: glyphic on 04 Jun 2008, 15:06
July 6th at the Bluebird in St. Louis, The Mae Shi and So Many Dynamos are playing.

It's a Sunday, which is actually awesome for me, since I have Mondays off. I'm gonna get trashed and try to sneak myself onto the Mae Shi's gear van.

If I miss this show, I WILL DIE

Anyway, what upcoming shows are making your mouths water?

On Saturday I will see Shellac, Mission of Burma, Melt Banana and Bottomless Pit in Paris.

This should be fun because -

A) The aforementioned bands playing together on one day!
B) It will be fun to see the extended Shellac/Burma/Pit family because I almost never get to see them these days.
C) It's in Paris! Paris is awesome!

Everyone keeps mentioning Swervedriver and I keep thinking they are Skrewdriver and I mistake everyone for neo-nazis

Midwest fest is this weekend! it has a pretty nice lineup of a bunch of hardcore/punk bands from... the midwest. Hey! All I need is a ride up to Lawrence.

Boris are playing sometime soon. Although I don't remember when.

Ghost Mice play Solidarity! on july 21st! I am really looking forward to that.

I guess it's not actually one show, but come on, look at that goddamn lineup.

HOLY FUCK that line up is amazing.

I'm going to Sigur Ros in August. Should be good.

List of shows I hope to hit up this summer:

Feist @ Shelburne in July
Gogol Bordello @ Higher Ground in August
Wilco & Andrew Bird roughly a week later at some place in Massachusetts.

And probably lots of local shows around my state.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?

Gogol Bordello for the 3rd time, on June 11th in Milwaukee. Going with a group of 10 friends. I'm pumped beyond belief. They always have the best gigs, they're like fucking carnivals.

June 25- Scout Niblett and June Panic
June 27- Frog Eyes
July 19- Son Ambulance
September 7- Xiu Xiu
September 15- OKKERVIL FUCKING RIVER.

I was going to go to Shearwater in Tronno but now it looks like we'll be leaving before then, so that sucks.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?

It'll be my second time seeing Gogol Bordello, and yeah, their concerts are fucking epic.

Also, I am so jealous, Misconception.  I would love to see Okkervil River.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: imagist42 on 04 Jun 2008, 23:08
Dude, I thought being in Austin this summer would let me be in the front row to get at least a taste of Okkervil at home, but it seems like they're only here for SXSW in March and ACL in September and tour everywhere else all year long... crap.

That said, I'm looking forward to Rilo Kiley, Islands (again), probably Wolf Parade, and maybe (depending on how long I'm around) The Faint.

P.S.: Are The Hold Steady any good? I'm barely familiar with them but have heard good things about their music, and since they have a show here in August I'm wondering if it's worth looking into.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: squawk on 04 Jun 2008, 23:44
I WANTED to see Islands and Wolf Parade but no go. I am seeing the Faint in August, though. That should be good. That will be my fourth show! I wish I could go to more shows.

Blondie this month.
The Brian Jonestown Massacre and All Points West (Radiohead, The New Pornographers, The Go! Team, more) in August.
My Bloody Valentine in September.

I just saw Duran Duran this past weekend and Wu-Tang Clan in April.

Fucking hell it's a good year for shows.

Now, I wouldn't normally get mind-boggled over somebody having eclectic taste in music, but seriously. Whoa.

On-topic, I got kinda bummed out with going to gigs by myself, so I haven't been to any in months. But next Wednesday I'm going to see Basia Bulat, which I'm excited about. And I'm taking a friend! So that will be nice.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?

Roskilde Festival. It has a similar line-up to Oya.

Why not for Islands and Wolf Parade? Scheduling conflicts? Because I know it's not that you can't get tickets, those shows aren't close to sold out.
And are you seeing them in Austin too?

I'm also going to give up on seeing Dinosaur Jr. next week because I'm dirt poor.

Nah, both shows are in San Francisco, a month apart. Islands is playing there on the sixteenth, Wolf Parade sometime in the middle of July, and I can't go because my sister would be the one to take me and she is pretty busy, though I think there's still a slim possibility of catching WP.

I just got back from seeing Gogol Bordellos in milwaukee--holy shit. Absolutely amazing. Quite probably the best show I've ever been to. It was 3 hours straight--I've literally got blisters on my feet from dancing, jumping, moshing...afterwards, people could barely even walk down the stairs their legs were so weak (no, it wasn't just alcohol. Every single person was stumbling and drifting to one side or the other, even these kids who were no older then 15.)

I saw them once before in Chicago, but they were even better this time. It was in a spectacular venue too: an old dance-hall downtown with a re-built stage. It never ceases to amaze me how much raw energy there is at a Gogol show. No other band I've been to comes anywhere close to it.

Post by: Calaveth on 12 Jun 2008, 01:58
I saw Gogol Bordello last fall in Stockholm. They were fantastic then too.

Only thing planned for this summer is a festival in my old home town that has Manu Chao, CSS, Opeth, the Hives, Kaizers Orchestra and fucking Sex Pistols.
There are some other pretty good Swedish bands playing too, so I suppose it will be good, even if I've seen better lineups.

I've always wanted to see Gogol Bordello, I reckon they would be fucking amazing live.

This summer I'm going to see Radiohead in Glasgow. Going to a couple of music festivals (Belladrum and Connect) which should hopefully be awesome if they are anything near as good as Rockness. Not any bands I particularly want to see at the festivals but they should be good anyway.

SOULWAX SOULWAX SOULWAX SOULWAX

(SOULWAX)



are playing Parklife!

Also 2manyDjs and Blackalicious!

And some other bands I suppose.

I'm looking forward to Opeth in a  few months, and next month there is an awesome lineup of local shoegazers/drone/ambient/post-rock bands playing, Hazards of Swimming Naked, Sleepmakeswaves, The Surrogate, and From Whence it Come are all playing together in July, which should be awesome

Holy crap, End of the Road Fest looks awesome!! So many good bands on there :-( Probably in the top five line ups I've seen all year (others include the London and NY ATPs and a couple that escape me now).

I was very upset for a while, because I thought Mogwai was only playing that damned ATP festival, but alas! this is not true!

september 19th they're coming round to philly, and I'm dragging everyone I possibly can to that. I can't wait. second time I'll be seeing them.

you've got to respect a band that plays from their entire repertoire, and not just their new album. they played My Father, My King in its entirety for us on the Mr. Beast tour.

Modest Mouse was pretty crap.  Pretty solid selection of older tunes, but Brock was not on his game vocally.  A girl next to me jumped on stage & hugged Johnny Marr.   Love as Laughter opened, & they were boring. 



Sigur Ros tix will be available for preorder on their site tomorrow @ 9 am.   Toronto here I come!   Also just noticed Boris will be in Buffalo!

Next Saturday at the Black Cat in DC Mission of Burma are playing Vs, which I've never really listened to but I'm sure is good if they're recent output is any indication (yeah, it's probably better, but I was late on the bandwagon, okay?).

Boris is coming to town soon, (July 8th?) which is nice.

And next time Pig Destroyer plays around here (and they're from northern Va) I will freak, though the bits of Phantom Limb I've heard are no Terrifyer.

Modest Mouse was pretty crap.  Pretty solid selection of older tunes if you ignore the fact they did not play Tundra-Desert I mean come on guys, but Brock was not on his game vocally/drunk enough to be fun to watchA girl next to me jumped on stage & hugged Johnny Marr.   Love as Laughter and Band of Horses opened, they were boring or really shitty (BoHorses)

Changed this up to fit my experience with this band last summer. Essentially, what we are getting at is Modest Mouse is boring band.

Oh, that's... specific. In which case if you go you might see a fat lard of ginger.

No but seriously, you should go. I caught them back in April and it was a great show despite a horribly incompetent soundman. And it's only $8, and apparently the drummer/singer from DFA1979 is opening? Should be awesome. P.S., if you do go you might see a fat lard of ginger wearing an LCD Soundsystem shirt.

I've seen Ladyhawk! From what I remember (it was a while ago), they were very good! Assuming this is the Ladyhawk that is on Jagjaguar and not the lady musician who is also known by that name but by all accounts is also very good.

I'm finalllllly gonna get to see Okkervil River in September. Woo!

Damn you. I've been dying to see Okkervil River since I heard them, but as I'm almost sure I mentioned somewhere else, it seems all these (inter)nationally popular Austin bands only come home for the big festivals (ACL and SXSW), when I'm off at school or whatever. This has made it difficult to see quite a few bands I like.

warped tour. very soon. I'm seeing nofx in new England later this year. Seeing less than jake + goldfinger on the shout it loud tour. those are the ones Im excited for the most.

Meh. There were only three bands on the whole of Warped this year I was excited about. And I'm not going to stand around all day to see three bands. I can see Street Dogs some other time, and I've already seen the Aggrolites when they opened for Dropkick Murphys last March. And Against Me!..eh. I guess I can deal without seeing them.

That said, I bought a pair of tickets for Sigur Ros yesterday! I have from now until September to find a cute ladyfriend to go with.

So MBV were awesome as expected. I've been to loud gigs before but the louds bits of this one made the room shake, let alone your clothes.

I went to the Splatterball last night, which I didn't think was going to be as awesome as it was, and discovered this awesome industrial band from Tokyo called Baal. They were really fucking awesome and they put on such an amazing show. My mind is still blown. Angelspit were ok but I think they could have been a little tighter, though given that the equipment at the Gaelic Club is pretty fucking terrible I'm not surprised that things kept fucking up for them.

I should be seeing Cottonmouth tomorrow (awesome local band), the Mae Shi in August, but, rather more excitingly, I got an e-mail telling me that I have won tickets to see Death Cab For Cutie on Monday. I never win anything.
This will hopefully make up for the rather odd Jaguar Love gig last week, and will pretty much make my year...although I'm slightly gutted that the intended support band (I Was A Cub Scout) split up a couple of weeks ago. Even if I did witness their incredibly uncomfortable disintegration on stage before it happened.
Still.
Death Cab.
Free.

I'm going to see Ignite tomorrow night at The Bald Faced Stag. I'm taking the night off of work to do this even though I am desperately poor. Should be a good night.

At the end of the month I've got Sigur Ros and Band of Horses. Also I just bought tickets for Patti Smith in October. Super psyched.

I love Patti Smith but the immediate response will always be "Damn, she's still alive?" in my head.

dalconnsuch, how were the Dandy Warhols? I'm looking forward to seeing them in September.

Now that I know I will be in Austin until November I am somewhat excited about Cut Copy coming on September 29th. I would be all over ACL but the 3-day passes are all gone, and I'm not excited about nearly enough bands to justify paying $80 a day, even for one day. This means I will miss out on Okkervil River yet again, but, well, they're not eighty dollars important to me.

So, yeah, I'm getting excited about Cut Copy.

Yeah, they played in Austin the next night. I had a good enough time with Wintersleep (they're far less danceable than Wolf Parade, so a lot of the crowd were agitating for their set to end from the beginning) but Wolf Parade definitely made the show.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: BlakeJustBlake on 30 Jul 2008, 08:59
Yeah, I mean, if I had heard of Wintersleep before I probably would've enjoyed it much more when theyw ere playing, but I downloaded some of their stuff and it's halfway decent. But yes, Wolf Parade provided so much energy and awesome music. Spencer Krug seems so modest and shy though, like every time the crowd went crazy applauding after a song he was just quietly like "Thanks, you guys are nice." But their encore was the best part of the whole show.

I GOT SIGUR ROS TICKETS!!!
I missed out on all four New York shows when trying to order online but a friend of a friend is willing to sell me a ticket face value for September 18th in New York. Holy shit I'm excited!! I was sure I was going to miss this whole tour and not be able to see them for a few years minimum thanks to their impending hiatus.

I think I'm seeing Sigur Ros as well.

I say I think because if all goes as planned, I will have press passes, but if all does not go as planned, I will not.
I should say though, that I am going to try REALLY fucking hard to make sure all goes as planned.

I was supposed to see The Arcade Fire/ LCD Soundsystem at the Hollywood Bowl last year. But things didn't go as planned, and i was quite upset.
This upsettness will be like 100x if I can't see Sigur Ros.

And I'm not even going to start talking about how excited I am for Radiohead in Chula Vista.

Other Bands I am really excited to hopefully see (in no particular order):
Okkervil River, Broken Social Scene, Mogwai, Stars, Octopus Project, Aesop Rock, The National, Beck, Menomena, TV on The Radio, The New Pornographers (for a 2nd time), Vampire Weekend, Man Man, Deerhoof, Girl Talk, The Dodos, M83,Presidents of the United States of America, quite a few others

Kanye was a big disappointment for me this summer.  Sigur Ros too.

Zappa plays Zappa (which I just noticed Jeph went to see) was crazy awesome.  Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Soul Stew Revival has probably been the best show on tour all summer for me.  I've seen them 3 times and each one has been even better.

This weekend coming up is a small festival in Asheville.  Trinumeral:  Galactic (still my favorite band), EOTO with Michael Kang, the Booty Band, and I'm very excited about Lotus and Particle.  Should be a good weekend.

I'm also mad because Yndi Halda is coming to Denton while I'll be back around Houston, and when they come to Houston it'll be at a 21-up bar.

Yeah, living in New Jersey (i.e. close to New York and Philly) actually does have some perks. I'm actually going to see Yndi Halda and Caspian and a couple other bands do a show at Piano's in New York in the end of August. Should be awesome!!

Kanye was a big disappointment for me this summer.  Sigur Ros too.

Explain?

Well Kayne was at Bonnaroo.  I was working the info tent and had a radio so I was listening in on the backstage production channel.  They moved his show from one of the tents to the main stage so he would have room to have his whole setup; they made this decision pretty early in the day so no big deal.  He wanted his show to be late so that his whole "glow in the dark" theme would look cool.  His whole setup was ready to go before 2 am.  He didn't get up on stage until close to 4 in the morning!  The sun was coming up before he was even an hour into his set.  I left after a short while.  It was horrible.

Really he was just being a jerk and wanted to be the only one on any of the stages.  Phil and Friends were suppoused to be on until about 4 but they were hurried to finish so the production crew could get Kayne to start on the other stage.  His big whiney blog post sealed the deal for me.  He's just a big ego that won't be getting any of my money.  I had a few albums but I've already given them away and don't plan on ever getting another.

The Talib Kweli show on the other hand was dank, and so was M.I.A.


As far as Sigur Ros goes it's tough for me to say.  I hadn't heard much so I went in with an open mind.  I did enjoy some of the show, a small march around the stage with tuba's and brass had me laughing but overall I couldn't get excited.  The singing after 5 or 6 songs really just began to sound all the same.  Give them a try I'd say but I'm not going to recommend it that much.

That what you were looking for?

you do realize he felt terrible about the bonnaroo show and he apologized profusely right

Here's his blog post.  Seriously, he is a Grade A D-Bag.  He types like a 13 year old thats upset that he lost in a video game or something.

Quote
I am  sick of negative  people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall... Why????  I understand if people don't like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much,  But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I've ever had in my life. This is the most offended I've ever been... this is the maddest I ever will be.  I'm typing so fucking hard I might break my fucking Mac book Air!!!!!!!!   Call me any name you want.... arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro, fag whatever you can think of....  BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL!   NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL!  THIS SHOWS NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY  TO BE GOOD AT SOMETHING THERE WILL BE PEOPLE THERE TO LIE ABOUT YOU AND BRING YOU DOWN!  LIKE WAYNE SAYS PLEASE DON'T SHOOT ME DOWN CAUSE I'M FLYING!  I'M FUCKING HURT BY THIS ONE. ALL I CARE ABOUT ARE THE FANS.  JUST SAY THIS OUT LOUD IN  A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE, "KANYE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT GIVING A GOOD PERFORMANCE."  CAN ANYONE HONESTLY SAY THAT ?????????      HAS ANYONE EVEN TAKEN THE TIME TO AT LEAST  DO THE MATH???  BONNAROO SHOULD HAVE RELEASED A STATEMENT IN MY DEFENSE BUT SINCE THEY HAVEN'T LET'S BREAK DOWN THE WALLS ON THIS TRUMAN SHOW AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY OCCURRED!!!   FOR OVER A MONTH WE WENT BACK AND FORTH ON WETHER OR NOT WE COULD EVEN FIT MY STAGE AT THE FESTIVAL. ONE DAY THEY WOULD SAY YES... WE'D SEND THEM OUR SPECS THEN THEY THEY'D SAY OK... THEN THEY WOULD SEND SPECS BACK THAT DIDN'T FIT THE STAGE. WE WERE OBVIOUSLY DEALING WITH FUCKING IDIOTS WHO DIDN'T REALLY HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REALLY PUT ON THIS SHOW PROPERLY.  THEY TRIED 2 GIVE ME A TIME SLOT WERE IT WAS STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE ... I HAVE A FUCKING LIGHT SHOW DUMB ASS, IT'S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS!  MY PEOPLE WORKED OUT A COMPROMISED STAGE PLOT AND A 3AM TIME SLOT AND I AGREED.   FAST FOWARD TO THE DAY OF THE SHOW. MY PRODUCTION MANAGER TRIED TO LOAD IN FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE I WENT ON STAGE BUT THE FESTIVAL WOULDN'T ALLOW US TO DO ANYTHING UNTILL PEARL JAM LEFT THE STAGE. PEARL JAM ENDED ONE HOUR 
LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  AT THAT POINT WE'RE RACING AGAINST THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT 4:20AM DON COMES BACK 2 THE BUS AND TELLS ME, " IT  WOULD TAKE 45 MORE MINUTES TO PUT ALL YOUR PYRO IN!"  I SAY I HAVE TO GET OUT THERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE . I HIT THE STAGE AND PEOPLE HAD BEEN THROWING SHIT ON THE STAGE AND HAD ACTUALLY HIT THE JANE SCREEN WITH, I GUESS BOTTLES OR SOMETHING AND HAD BROKEN MY FUCKING SCREEN.  REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE A SHORTY AND WATER WOULD HIT THE TV??????  WHEN I GOT 2 "THROUGH THE WIRE" I STEPPED ON  THE FRONT PART OF MY STAGE AND THERE WAS SO MUCH LIQUID ON THE STAGE  I COULDN'T MOVE WITHOUT SLIPPING. I HAD TO ADJUST MY WHOLE PERFORMANCE STYLE BECAUSE OF IT.  A FEW MORE SONGS IN AND THE SONG WAS ON IT'S WAY UP.. I  CUT A FEW SONGS FROM THE SET BECAUSE  I  WANTED PEOPLE 2 EXPERIENCE STRONGER WHILE THERE WAS STILL SOME DARKNESS TO PERFORM IT IN.  I'VE STRUGGLED WITH STRONGER FROM IT'S   CONCEPTION. REMEMBER LAST SUMMER WHEN I CANCELED SOME TV APPEARANCES.  IT WAS BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PERFORM STRONGER IN THE DAYTIME.  ANYONE WHO CAME TO THE GLOW TOUR CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I WANTED PEOPLE TO SEE IT PROPERLY. IT BROKE MY HEART THAT I COULDN'T GIVE THESE FANS STRONGER IN IT'S GREATEST FORM... BY THE TIME I GOT TO STRONGER IT WAS DAYTIME AND IT BROKE MY HEART.  I'M SORRY TO EVERYONE THAT I DIDN'T HAVE THE ABILITY 2 GIVE THE PERFORMANCE I WANTED TO. I'M SORRY...  SOMETIMES I GO 2, 3 DAYS W/O SLEEP WORKING ON MY PERFORMANCE... I HAVE TO ICE MY KNEES AFTER EVERY SHOW AND THEY HURT WHEN I WALK THROUGH THE AIRPORT... HAVING AN EXPENSIVE STAGE CUTS MY PAYDAY IN HALF... CALL ME WHAT YOU WANT BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL!!!

You know, while I'm sure all the pyrotechnics and the light show is cool, if your music isn't good enough to stand on its own without that, then you really aren't that much of a musician. If full load-in wasn't going to be possible, a real showman would have found a way to keep the necessary pieces and set up in a shorter time frame. If you're as good at your job as Kanye West seems to believe that he is, you'll make up for it as best you can and the audience will forgive you. What they won't forgive is a late performance that turns out to be too short followed by a lame excuse about how it's not your fault. The show must go on.

In November I'm going to see Stars of the Lid and Hammock, two of the best ambient musical groups out there, play a show together at a very cool little venue in New York. SofL almost never play live shows so needless to say I'm incredibly excited.
I'm also very excited to see Library Tapes and Deaf Center in the same venue in late September. I'll be getting my ambient fix for sure.

I'm going to see Nightwish, Gogol Bordello and Opeth in New Orleans in the upcoming monhts.

Yes, each band is a different show.

Nightwish is just because I had a friend ask me to join her.  But the Bordello and Opeth?  Hell yes.

I'm also seeing MSI at a couple of a shows with a friend.  This is mainly for the roadtrip and time spent with some amigos, but I got to say, Jimmy's banter makes the show lively.

Nobody too underground, like the Test Tube Queers, but I'm sure the people I work with will give me funny looks when I mention the band names.

I went to see What Made Milwaukee Famous last night. It was refreshing to see some guys who were just playing good rock music and having some fun on stage.

I loved WMMF in concert.  Saw them at the North Star Bar in Philly a few months ago.  You're right, they were so natural up there, and the harmonies were unbelievable.  Definitely an awesome show.

So I basically just got into Tokyo Police Club but I'm digging how much they rock out (especially how the vocalist can go from delicate "The Weakerthans" mode to scratchy, Is This It-era "The Strokes" singing and back in the space of 30 seconds). And I found out they are coming to Austin in a month. Anyone seen them live? Are they not at least not terrible (for $14, I'm not going to hold out for "absolutely amazing," although that would be nice too)?

I'm going to ATP: New York in September. Here is the line-up. (http://www.atpfestival.com/events/atp-ny/line_up.php) It's a three day festival and it's a few days after the Monolith festival (2 days with lots of stairs), so it'll be a challenge to stand up.

I'm also going to see Future of the Left/Ted Leo/Against Me! October 21st.
Ugh, you lucky bitch. ATP is a continually unrealized dream for me.

Radiohead at Outside Lands on the 22nd, !!! on the 26th in Sacramento, X next month in Sacramento, and MBV in San Francisco next month.

I like living in NorCal.

Man Radiohead put on a good show when I went to see them in May. I just had a big exam a few days before so it was nice to unwind with that concert.

Aesop Rock - tuesday in Philly
(hopefully) Finntroll - saturday in Philly  (or friday in northern VA)
Carcass is coming soon to Baltimore, Oct if I recall correctly.
Nightwish at the end of September
Opeth is gonna be here in Baltimore
Amorphis in northern VA
Obituary is playing at some point in Baltimore.

Lastly (well, two different shows)
Children of Bodom are playing here, in Baltimore, which is excellent.
and
Amon Amarth is touring with Ensiferum... which could make it the most EPIC show ever in the history of epic.  I don't think the Troc in Philly can handle that much epic in one night.

I'm happy with the line up, personally. For most of the bands that are playing, I probably will never get the opportunity to see otherwise.

To add to my concert going list, I'm going to see Al Green at the Botanical Gardens at the end of the month.

This Saturday at the Schlafly Tap Room parking lot there is a FREE mini festival going on. 4:00-1:30.

So Many Dynamos, Earthworms, ton of other bands.


By the way, the Pretty & Nice, Hyperbubble show was awesome. I had no Idea that the singer for The Sudden Passion was also the singer for the Femme Fatality until they started playing.

Unfortunately, The Makeshift Gentlemen seemed hokey. Their songs included overly obvious and heavy-handed lyrics referencing such movies as: Mystery Men, Wild Wild West, and Clockwork Orange. When they started a song by shouting "Are you ready for some ultra-violence," I went to the bar.

Otherwise, the show was fantastic.

The Mountain Goats are so so amazing live. Possibly my favorite show, ever.

Anyway I'm seeing the Silver Jews on the 30th. Okkervil River is coming to town in October but I'm supposed to go to Richmond that weekend and the show is on a Thursday so I could do it but my boyfriend has this crazy idea of leaving Thursday night and driving all night. Plus I need a car to get to this venue. But fucking hell, it's Okkervil River. I'm going to have to negotiate these plans a little more (he seriously underestimates my love for this band, "all your music sounds the same").

I missed a Girl Talk show a month or so ago, and apparently he's really amazing live.  I was bummed I couldn't go.

But uh, here's my list for the next couple months:

man man - 8/27
built to spill - 9/6
okkervil river - 9/20
deerhoof - 10/6
gogol bordello - 10/7

Mainly I'm excited about Man Man and Deerhoof.  I might go see Atmosphere too, but I might be too broke to afford it by then.

Bonus points for Stars and Iron and Wine also playing here, but on the same nights as other shows.  Awesome (but not really).

My luck that most of my favoriate songs were covered during the final wrapped up show in New York's Madison Square Garden in August, such as - Message in a Bottle
Walking on the Moon, Roxanne, So Lonely, Every Breath You Take and Next to You...  I found it's funny when the police were joined by the New York Police Department marching band for "Message in a Bottle" when they wrapped up this blockbuster 15-month   reunion tour  (http://www.rollingstone.com/artists/thepolice/articles/story/22682497/the_police_say_farewell_with_new_york_blowout).

I may just head up there and hope for a scalper, because General Admission seating is not my cup of tea.

The 18th for me. And Stars the night after. I'm excited! It'll be really cool, despite my initial dismay, to see SR without Amiina or the brass section (since no shows on the US leg of the tour will have them) b/c they'll be forced to play a lot of stuff which doesn't rely on those elements i.e. a lot of stuff that they don't often play live.

Man, who knows. I got one girl starting up a second job and another girl in medical school. They've been pretty good about adhering to plans before but hell, you never really know. I should be fairly certain about 2 of the 3 girls by about this time next week (I hope) but they might drop out on short notice. That's happened with other friends. If none of mine are loose you could still make the attempt to snag a ticket. Scalpers are at every show, and you might even find some concertgoers selling their tickets at cost. If you make it in I'll buy you a beer or something. But I'd hate for you to make the trek and come up empty-handed. Your call.

At the point I got the tickets I suspect they'd been on sale for awhile, so they're row 38, which is a little over halfway up (http://www.redrocksonline.com/pages/questions/seatingChart/RR_Seating.pdf). Sound and line of sight are both pretty excellent at Red Rocks, though.

Definitely can't afford this, though it'll probably happen at Terminal 5 or Roseland Ballroom, literally 100 metres in each direction away from me.

Holy SHIT I'm excited. New Monuments is playing at my school on Sunday. For those that don't know (and if you like noise music you probably know already and if you don't you probably don't care but that's ok), New Monuments are basically a noise supergroup.  They're a trio featuring C Spencer Yeh of Burning Star Core, Ben Hall of Graveyards, and Don Dietrich of Borbetomagus and Wolf Eyes. They're doing like six shows on this tour so it's a pretty rare opportunity. I can't wait. I'll report on the gravity of my hearing loss after the show for sure.

I think Sam has a thing about money, in that he doesn't quite like to spend it? I'm not sure.

But, yeah, I could hear a few of their songs while waiting to get in for Tokyo Police Club, and even two blocks away those few songs alone would have been worth my $20. Of course, Tokyo Police Club (and especially The Whigs, who were much better overall than I expected) was worth my $14, I think. I don't even care that I woke up unable to breath because this cold I've been developing is in full blast and I still had secondhand smoke in my airways.

In retrospect, parking under I-35 wasn't worth my extra $5, though. When did that idiocy start?

Well the thing is, there was no fee (and no regulation to be seen) the last 4 or 5 times I've parked in those lots for shows at Emo's, Stubb's, etc. The only other time I've paid for parking at a show in Austin was for Wolf Parade at La Zona Rosa, because I decided to be semi-safe and park in the City Hall garage (which was also $5). So I thought it was a little odd.

But this year there are a few bands I really want to see. Bouncing Souls are going to be there, those New Jersey mooches... I love them. ALL will be there. Also a good band. The Lawrence Arms, who I have already seen at the Fireside Bowl... When it was still there... Horrorpops will be there, but I don't know how I feel about them since I was in high school... I mean, really, a lot of these bands are going to suck (The Casualties?!?) but the Bouncing Souls and maybe even Shot Baker may make up for it. (Oh, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Hahaha.)

shows are on average $10-14 where i live, so yes.

Uh. What. Maybe at Emo's and the like, but most of the "big" Stubb's shows I have seen are at least $20. Mogwai seemed kind of on the cheap end for their popularity and being at Stubb's.

Mogwai is a big name so even when they play at venues that often have $10-$15 shows (i.e. the Starlight Ballroom in Philly) they garner a ticket price of $20-$25 minimum. It shouldn't be surprising regardless of the venue. I obviously wish the shows were cheaper myself (not that it matters for me since I can't go to any of the shows I'd hypothetically be able to go to) but still, I'd happily pay $20 to see 'em.

Sigur Ros. Tomorrow night. HELLS YES.

I was extremely pissed when I tried to buy tickets for their Chicago show TWO MONTHS ahead of time and they were sold out.

GAAAAAAAHHHHH

Too bad you aren't in the Boston area. I had two tickets, but sold the extra one on craigslist.

The Dandy Warhols were fan-fucking-tastic. Also The Upsidedown was pretty good.

My Bloody Valentine on Monday!

Against Me!, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, and Future of the Left (two thirds of mclusky and another dude) on October 11th
Girl Talk in November
Possibly My Morning Jacket on New Year's Eve if a bunch of things work in my favor and I end up not having a prior engagement.

You just won music, Eugene. o/

Ted Leo played an fucking amazing set when I saw him in March, but the crowd wasn't into it AT ALL. Way to ruin a show, drunk bros.

Unfortunately,  at Madison Square Garden. Which means that tickets will be expensive out the ass and I will still be a mile away (I've had $250 a piece floor seats for other shows at Madison Square Garden and felt like I was in the nosebleed section).

We shall see, however.

Oh man, Stars put on a killer live show, guys. They were hugely energetic and played a great set. They also seemed genuinely and incredibly grateful to see how excited the audience was to see them. They seemed to put all they had into the set which is always very nice to see. I was tempted to go see them in NYC the next night but $30 tickets dissuaded me.

I would just like to say that there is no better feeling than that of the cold metal of the press barrier on your wrists at a My Bloody Valentine reunion show in a venue that legally holds 3500 and probably held more.

Front row, dead center, motherfuckers. I was maybe 4 meters away from Kevin Shields and, at some point earlier, J Mascis, who jammed with one of the opening acts.

Needless to say my week life is made and I am still experiencing the aftershocks of musical orgasm.

Cue crappy cameraphone pictures.

Torche was probably the most ROCK thing ever. The guys were rocking out so hard, seriously. And when they brought the bomb guitars, it was so heavy I thought the universe was gonna collapse.

Pelican was also really, really good, as always, although they didn't play "Autumn Into Summer"

update from that:  the built to spill/dinosaur jr./meat puppets show i was two metres away from all three bands, and dinosaur jr.'s setlist!

shit, it was amazing.  perfect from now on is a little jammy, so bts got a little boring at points, but dinosaur jr. was AMAZING.

This.

I was expcting a fun show, but whoa, their sound was just immense.

I must admit though, Pelican was a little disappointing. They played a lot of their new boring post-rocky stuff. Don't get me wrong, they still gave a good heavy performance, but the setlist could have been much better. That said, they saved their asses with the encore, finally playing something from the s/t.

Saw MBV last night in San Francisco. It was awesome. ROCKING. Fucking great and terrific and awesome. I risked (what is left of ) my fairly crappy 35 year old punk rock hearing (refused to wear earplugs) WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 15-20 MIN ROCK TUMBLING MANIA and feel great today. They were so amazing. I saw them in 92 with Dinosaur jr in St. Petersburg, FL and that show pretty much changed my life. Last night didn't change my life...but it definitely made me happier than I thought possible sweating, cramped in with thousands of other people without having a particularly good view of the stage.

Spectrum opening up was such as treat as I didn't know until the day before. I have seen him (them) and Spiritualized before...but seeing them within a short proximity of time near each other was ALMOST like seeing Spacemen 3! Right?

And tripping balls while Spiritualized was playing at the Treasure Island Music Festival (sun, wind, choir, perfect versions of some of my favorite songs) was just about one of the best things of my life ever.
Now if only Moose, Ride, and the Pale Saints would all get together and play.

I've seen the Fall a couple of times before. As you probably know, I love a lot of their records. In particular I am a massive fan of their records up to Room to Live. I still buy their records but I do not think I have interest in seeing them (or him) live any more. It's reached the point where it's actually pretty hard to watch MES for any length of time. The dude is messed up. He's still got it but he has this thing whereby he severely limits all of the things that makes live music an entertaining spectacle. Sometimes I want to hear a song or two from earlier records, call me a jerk if you like. Sometimes I want a bit of banter or audience interaction. Sometimes I want the musicians to be able to improvise or stray from the recorded versions of songs. Thus, I probably won't go.

However, I will go and see The Wedding Present later in the year!

DO IT. They put on a hell of a show.

Agreed, i saw them last year for the first time and it was insane.  So much so that I'm going again this year (i forgot the date but its at the Izod Center in Jersey).  They played for nearly 3 hours.  The first half of the show was like a play, the did the majority of the story telling album.  Then, when i figured the show was over and still happy with their performance, the lead dude came out and told everyone they were just getting started, and played for another hour-hour & a half.  Then brought out Roger Daltry and did three Who songs with him.

The performances itself we awesome, two dudes in long tuxedo coats running around playing christmas songs on flying v guitars, backing band, multiple vocalists, and a 6 or 7 piece string group.  The light show was like a show in itself.

It also probably helped that I had dead center floor seats, which were towards the back so they were on risers.  High five the Izod Center for that.

Oh wow they are finally bringing it to Perth... with a lineup that I'm not all that crazy about. Depending on how much it costs I may still go pretty much just for Girl Talk, and the fact that it is such a great little festival.

(technicaly it'd be cool to see AiH and The Hold Steady and the Drones and Jay Reatard as well but I'm not crazy about it either)

Hahaha oh wow you really are

I had my reasons! I did not go there because I wanted to go a lot but because my sister and another friend of mine wanted to go and my friend was super depressed at the time so I decided to come along to cheer her up a bit!

Hey! You invited me, remember? I wouldn't have gone if you didn't invite me. Oh well, I'm glad I went anyway, the warm up bands were worth my time and money, simply because they were hysterical.

No, I knew about the show but decided not to go, and then you said something like "My friends wants me to go to this Wombats show with them... Wanna come too?" You didn't seem too enthusiastic about it either, so I thought "Why not...", so we at least could be a little "whatever" together.

Deerhoof (omgomgwoot) on Tuesday, at First Ave. I tried to talk one of my friends into going with me, so I started the conversation by saying "Hey, do like Deerhoof?"
His response: "...Man, I don't even know"
It was a good moment. He's still undecided, but I think the fact that it's a pretty cheap show might sway him.

Is it just me or does almost every british "indie" band's singer have the same annoying faux-cockney voice no matter where the fuck it is they come from? That said, the wombats are pretty bland and unoriginal.

thank fuck, i thought i was alone in thinking this.  and being in the UK i get subjected to it all the more often.  u want the worst example of it?  "22 grand job" by the rakes.  just a tone-deaf piss-sponge of a singer going "22 grand job in the city, it's alright" in a mockney-bollocks voice for 3 minutes.  complete sack of horsewank, that song.

Oh man please do not be implying that The Rakes were ever as bad as the recent rash of crappy "indie rock" bands that have followed the Kooks (the Wombats, Scouting For Girls, Fratellis). They were never great, but they weren't as bad as a lot of what we get now. Plus, they're actually from London, so I think we can cut them a bit of slack for sounding like it.

Also, to keep this on topic:

This week I am going to see of Montreal and, on Saturday, Holy Fuck, both of which should be great. Although apparently The Bug is playing in my area on Saturday, which I am disappointed to be missing - hopefully it will still be going by the time I get back from Holy Fuck. It's dubstep, so I don't imagine it'll end early. Apparently El Guincho is playing at my uni on Halloween, too, which should be pretty much good times! Last time I saw him, people got angry with us for dancing. Hopefully this will not happen again.

i was just using them as an example.  although i can cut the kooks and the fratellis some slack as they've written a handful of catchy tunes between them.  admittedly the catchiness is all they've got going for them, but the rakes can't even boast that.  tbh, i tend to disregard any band that gets hugely hyped by NME magazine.  in 3 years or so of taking that approach, i've gone on to eventually hear most of those bands and found that i was pretty much right to have ignored them.

I was gonna post here before I saw Man Man this past Sunday, but did not.

If you ever get the chance, see them. SEE THEM. Oh man what a show.

Everybody plays 5 instruments, everybody gets percussion, everybody goes nuts, everybody is constantly throwing party favors at each other. The guy who looks like Dan Deacon went through like 9 drum sticks that night. It was a show to be remembered.

Future shows I'm excited about: Fucked Up, Polysics/Jaguar Love, William E. Whitmore/Murder by Death, Bon Iver

You dodged a bullet.  The Virgins were opening, and based on former experiences, they are the worst live band in existence.  Complete trash.  Even if I found Black Kids remotely appealing, The Virgins' presence would have been enough to keep me away from the show.

I saw G.O. play download fest.

They are more of a party show.
the type where it doesn't really matter if you're close to the stage or not.
It's a fun show, but not necessarily a interesting one as far as technical stuff goes.
But they have really cool lights and are a little crazy

I'd say it probably all comes down to the crowd.

Enjoy.

Alden Ginger of The Unicorns has a new band called Clues. It has some members of Arcade Fire and Hrsta and some other cool bands in it too. They're putting out their first album on Constellation (Evangelista and Vic Chestnut and Godspeed You! Black Emperor and such) next year. Anyway I booked them to play a show on my campus which should be rather fun. Apparently they put on a pretty excellent live show (with three drummers, no less). A Canadian duo called Elfin Saddle which uses all sorts of cool acoustic instruments and a home made drums is opening and maybe, as a first opener, an excellent new band from Main called Lady Lamb the Bee Keeper (check them out online. Good stuff and deserving of recognition!).

Good stuff and deserving of recognition!).

Clues was the strangest show I've ever seen.  I think I saw their first live show, or at least one of the early ones.  They only had one drummer at the time anyhow.  Alden (Penner is his proper name) had a lapel mike which ran through all sorts of distortion, but he would only use it in between songs, just shrieking and yelling into it at random moments.  The drummer in the middle of the set began removing clothes, and soon after stood up, threw the drum set all over the stage, kicked over some other instruments, and walked out through the front door.  While he was gone, Alden mumbled disconnected phrases and shrieked.  After a few minutes, the drummer came back, set up his drum set, said "I was hot", and the show began as if nothing had happened.  For their encore they did a karaoke cover of some old song.  In the middle of the show, the keyboardist asked the audience to applaud her parents, who were in the crowd.  So strange.

Elfin Saddle opened, and they were a lot of fun.

i will probably be going to see Exodus and Kreator with Belphegor, Warbringer and Epicurean opening in vancouver come april.
so excited to see Kreator, and i know warbringer and exodus will put on a good show. Belphegor i havent heard much of, not really my thing but i have heard good things about their stage prescence. epicurean so far i know nothing of, yet.

i had tickets to go see Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquility, firewind and divine heresy but i was too lazy to go (costs me 200 bucks to get to vancouver and back). which i really regret now, as i have gotten into all those bands.

Are you by any chance seeing him play at Chronic Town?  I just saw he's playing there with Elf Power in Jan.  Never really listened to either of them, but from what I read on the internets, they sound worth checking out.  I found some albums on the mediaf!re thread, so I'll give them a listen.

No dogg at the black cat back stage. It's January 22 I think. If you like A Silver Mt Zion, you'd probably like Vic Chesnutt. Think guy playing folky songs on his little acoustic guitar with A Silver Mt Zion backing him up. I saw him open for them last May and it was pretty great. It'll be interesting to see if he plays his new songs without them.

It's a bit of a stretch but I think its at least a bit valid. I mean, if I wanted to I could probably draw some parallels between Horses in the Sky and some of the more drawn out tracks on North Star Deserter. And songs like marathon have a bit of a post-rock-ish feel to them.

I've never seen them live before, actually never been to any big shows, always either find out about them too late (like when I found out down was supporting metallica when my guitar teacher mentioned seeing them the day before), or run out of moneys. I'm still somewhat worried my father will forget and schedule something for that day, but I probably should give him more credit than that.

Valley_Parade, if you do end up going to the show in Albany, make sure you go to Bombers Burrito Bar on Lark Street.  Giant, tasty burritos for cheap and it should be walking distance from the Times Union Center provided the weather isn't terrible.  Which, you know, is a crapshoot this time of year.

I am excited about going to see Michael Franti and Spearhead tomorrow night! I didn't know who he was prior to last week, when a friend of mine offered to pay for my ticket so that someone would go with her, but I found out today that I won free tickets to the show as well as a signed CD and entrance to the Soundcheck Meet and Greet before the show!  So I get to leave work early and hang out in Albany with musicians! Yay!

I used to go to the TU Center a lot for River Rats games (hello, I am a hockey junkie). My favorite food place is quite honestly the pizzeria that's right on the corner of the building. Pizzeria Sapienza or something like that? I would murder someone if it got me one of their chicken parmesan pizzas.

Right, so ATP at Sydney is $150, but doesn't have Dirty Three playing. ATP at Brisbane is $95, and only has a couple of bands listed. ATP at Mt. Buller is $200 and has Dirty Three listed.

I'm pretty confused right now.

The songs they played together were just magnificent.

Yeah, it does sound pretty amazing. I think they'll be performing mostly their new album, which features the orchestra on much of it, but they could also be reworking older stuff to include an orchestra, which would be awesome. There's strings on some of their older songs but nothing as epic as a full accompaniment. Who knows, maybe we'll even get a song off the WEG collaboration. Anyway, I'm not sure when it's happening or where exactly. The only info I've heard (from an interview with Taka Goto) is that it'll be sometime in May and it'll be in a church in NYC. I'm sure once the date/location is confirmed that info will be on the band's and label's website so....if I happen to see it I'll post it here for sure. It just sounds so damn amazing! And yeah, a meet up would be pretty fun. I thought I was excited for the new album (and I really, really am) but this just might take the cake. Plus they're incredible live to begin with (one of my favorite live bands in fact). Of course, after this show they'll be doing a general U.S. tour, meaning I'll be seeing them at least twice more. Already I can tell this is going to be a good summer!

The fuckin WILDHEARTS!!!! on monday!!!!

for those who don't know, they're like cheap trick, metallica, and guns'n'roses mixed together, but better than all three.  this gig is going to be AMAZING!

i should point out that this^ was an amazing gig.  made even more awesome by the fact that support acts were A (yes, a band called "A"!) who've reformed for the tour (and are promising a new album now apparently!) and are one of the best british pop-rock bands of the last 10 years, and Tragedy, a heavy metal tribute to the bee-gees.  which i don't need to tell you is fucking AWESOME, and pretty hilarious too!

Say Panther at Cicero's in STL Thursday. I've seen these guys a few times. They're fun. Mostly, I'm going because I don't know of any other shows in the near future :(

Mogwai.
Early March.

I assume this is at the festival with Gary Numan? I kinda wish that was in my state, but I can't justify travelling for it.

Nevereverland in 10 days for me - Presets, Klaxons, Cut Copy, other bands. Should be fun!

All this for just 1750 people... It's just going to be awesome.

Well honestly, it's kind of hard to take that disjointed sort of cacophony and pull it off live. Arnold Boisner (gramophone operator) does a pretty good job, but Palmer Reeves (shoebox telephone) can't really keep up, it seems.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: KickThatBathProf on 19 Dec 2008, 11:33
I agree completely.  When I saw them live, Reeves switched to the sarrusophone part on "poiu32?v" and just missed the beat entirely.  It was awful.  Samson Ingrid (Lead glockenspiel) just kind of did his own thing and it was clear that the entire 11-man ensemble was pretty disjunct the whole show

Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: A Shoggoth on the Roof on 03 Jan 2009, 18:53
the show starts at 8 pm and I'd have to get up at six the next morning. I could probably do it, But, assuming I decide to cram the night before, I'd get five or less hours of sleep. And I nearly failed calc last term. If I can take the midterm early, I don't even need to go in on friday. Titus Andronicus are sort of local (Delaware doesn't have a real football team or good bands, so we leech off nearby states), so I'll probably get another chance to see them. But them and Los Campesinos! is pretty awesome.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: Tom on 03 Jan 2009, 20:10
Seeing as I don't really like Los Campensinos! (this being an understatement) my advice is most probably void anyway but on a purely scholastic level, don't bother just stay home, study and get enough sleep for the next day.

Apparently, Mogwai is supposed to be announcing U.S. tour dates soonish. On their myspace, they say that since their last tour was cut short, they would announce more U.S. dates in 2009 (I don't know if they meant at the beginning of the year, or anytime before 2010). If they come within a 40 mile radius of me, then that's the show I'm excited about. I don't know of any other bands I want to see that are touring near me, currently.

Has anyone heard more about this Mogwai business? All I read was rather vague.

So I was listening to The Hold Steady today and was thinking, wow I've heard these guys put on a pretty good live show, I'm going to look at their tour dates.

They are playing the same day as the Gaslight Anthem.  I am frustrated now.

I saw Flogging Molly briefly at Warped '07. They were good until someone kicked me in the skull. I don't remember the set from there on, just drinking some water and then finding my friend so we could see Bad Religion.

Guys what do I do. Efterklang is coming. They play in DC during my spring break but the venue is +18. They play in philly the next day but the day after that I have an audition for music school which is basically the most important event in my life this year, maybe, and if I fuck it up REALLY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN.

halp plz

Post by: TheFuriousWombat on 26 Jan 2009, 10:54
Hmm...tough one. I can say that I saw Efterklang play the same venue in Philly last tour and it was rather lovely. Also Matthew Broderick rocks. What would you be doing to prepare for the audition if you didn't go to the show? One the one hand, extra practice and enough sleep is probably important. On the other, how helpful will a couple extra hours of practice really be AND mightn't the music inspire you? Of course those are both a stretch but it will be a good show...

I want to see Modest Mouse in March, especially since they're playing NYC, but $37 would be like the third most I've ever paid for a show and I really don't know it it's worth it (especially now, since my ipod was just stolen and I have to dip into the 'ole piggy bank for a new one).

I would kill to see Modest Mouse... for a band from the Pacific Northwest they sure know how to avoid Boise, not that I can blame them.

So I just spent $41 on a Death Cab ticket... I know, but I missed them 3 years ago when I was into them and I want to see Transatlanticism live...  Ratatat tickets go on sale tomorrow and I'll probably pick one of them up, and Andrew Bird tickets are $18 so I'll probably go to that as well.  Going to be my first concerts of the year.

Haven't seen anything since Ted Leo and Against Me! in October.  A band called The Future of the Left opened for them, and they were amazing.  They were a punk band from Scotland, and there was really no one on the floor when they played so during a synth solo about 8 of my friends and I formed a kick line.  After the show we talked with Against Me! then they walked across the street into, as far as I know, the only drag bar in Idaho.

EDIT: Murder by Death is playing March 1st... So I'm going to go to that too.  I probably wont be able to afford much food for a while.

Most of the shows they're playing are under $30, with the exception of Radio City Music Hall, so it'll probably be fine. They'll be playing the whole new album and older stuff too.

Well since I live in san antonio, i typically have to drive to austin to see any good shows, but this March is looking pretty good for me. Tokyo Police Club and Ra Ra Riot are playing here on the 13th, the Gay Blades on the 15th, dear and the headlights on the 17th, and then Cursive!!!!!!! is coming on the 18th. Which is crazy cause they are only playing 8 shows and for some reason along with 2 in New York, 2 In LA, they are coming to San Antonio. Fucking sweet though. Oh and plus, Pelican is playing on the 18th as well, so in case the cursive show is sold out to quick, I got a backup. Sadly, this will probably the best week of concerts that San Antonio will ever put together.

And then of course I have SXSW to help me enjoy my spring break.

I've just started listening to The Gaslight Anthem. Just a couple of times through their album from last year is more than enough to make me really want to see them live. I don't get to many rock 'n roll shows, my concert attendance being mostly limited to ambient/noise/post rock shows and such. But these guys are so good that I find it hard to believe they don't put on a phenomenal live show. Anyway I'll be catching them in Philly at the Trocadero come late March.

I really wanna see them at the Stone Pony in May, but I have no one else to go with.  I figure they'd be a good band to see there, since they're from Jersey and big Springsteen fans and stuff.

QUESTION FOR NORTH JERSEY/NYC CONCERT GOERS!

Has anyone here been to a Central Park Summerstage show?  TV on the Radio will be there June 5th, and the tickets go on sale this friday.  They're $30.  What kind of venue is this?  I've never seen them, so I'd like to go, but I don't really wanna pay $30 to go and stand in the middle of a park with a bunch of other people.  Is it worth it?

Eh. That's pretty much it. A band shell in the middle of Central Park with a shit ton of standing room and $8 R.C. Cola. The bands play in brought daylight usually. The band has to be pretty sick or fit the ambiance to put on a good show. The Apples in Stereo were great there, but Dragons of Zynth (I believe their last album was produced by members of TVotR) and Television were awful and boring.

If you have any other options, pick those.

Ok so MONO are playing in the nearest city to where I live, I want to go see them SO bad but, er I've never really been to a gig because all my friends either don't like music or like music that I personally don't enjoy. Does anyone have any advice about going to gigs alone? Any specific advice for the band, I can't imagine they are gonna get to SUNN 0))) levels of needing a spare pair of pants and earplugs but...

God I wish I knew at least one person who liked similar music to me, at the same venue in march Gojira are playing AND Baroness are playing, its kind of an awesome venue, every time I look on the site there's always at least two bands that make me go holy shit, and I get so depressed that I've decided I'm going to try to overcome my crippling social anxiety.

Sorry for the "GET A BLOG!1" message, but any help would be appreciated, I am kinda shy and stuff, probably some of you are going what the hell is this scrub talking about, but it is kinda a big deal for me.

Man, MONO are just so good live. Go to the show by yourself. Seriously. You won't be able to do anything but stand next to any friends that go anyway since it's too loud to chat (and you shouldn't want to talk when MONO is playing anyway). I say go. You won't be sorry and if you stay home just so you don't have to go alone you'll be missing out on some seriously awesome musics.

Crippled Black Phoenix is finally playing shows in the U.S.

From Wikipedia - "Crippled Black Phoenix is a collective of musicians from many other bands (including notably Iron Monkey, Gonga, Mogwai, and others). In 2004, Justin Greaves began recording primitive sounds he had in mind for years. He was encouraged by Dominic Aitchison, and their ideas would lay the backbone for Crippled Black Phoenix.
Although originally having an unorthodox start, since all the band members were part of and busy with other projects at the time of the band's founding, Crippled Black Phoenix remained committed to staying together and forged their own unique sound. The band writes what they call "endtime ballads," signifying both the slightly macabre nature of their songs and their unusual blend of styles as the final evolution in music. This strange blend has led to them being called everything from stoner-prog to freak-folk to doom.
Crippled Black Phoenix have made live shows a focus and have performed in unusual venues, using Victorian-era instruments in tandem with more modern instruments."

There are three releases that you can find if you look:

A Love Of Shared Disasters
Night Raider
The Resurrectionists

This is a poorly shot video of them playing "Goodnight Europe" live.  Their music starts off slow and builds to a climax so give it a chance, they have range.

This band is worth checking out and their tour starts in April.

EDIT: valley_parade , I don't know if you know this (or if there are tickets available) but Against Me! are opening for the Pogues Friday & Saturday this weekend at the House of Blues in Boston.  THAT sounds like a pretty good show.

Man, you can grill all sorts of vegan products. Various vegan burgers, lentil burgers, tempeh, seitan, and tofu can all be made into grillable shapes and flavored in vegan ways. There's a big industry here. I'm not a vegan but I can say with confidence that there's enough options for me to be happy even if a bbq is 100% vegan.

I think I saw them opening for Dropkick Murphys in '07. Ended their set with some sort of strange Clash/Beatles medley that was wicked awesome. I would have danced if the fucking bastards at Boston University weren't so strict with their floor set-up. Christ, we're not gonna mess up your precious ice by dancing and moshing.

I saw these guys for the second time last night too. They played a wide variety of songs (including Matt Hollywood stuff; he's back!) and no fights broke out. Joel had a "tambourine solo" which was hilarious. My only (slight) complaint was that they didn't do anything from their new album aside from "Yeah Yeah." But yea, it was an incredible show.

Fri: Beastie Boys, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend, The National, Fleet Foxes, Q-Tip, Shearwater, Flying Lotus.

Sat: My Bloody Valentine, Gogol Bordello, Arctic Monkeys, Neko Case, Crystal Castles, St. Vincent, Chairlift, Black Gold.

Sun: Echo & the Bunnymen, MGMT, The Black Keys, Silversun Pickups, Mogqai, We are Scientists, Lykke Li, Akron/Family.


I'd say it's a tossup between Saturday and Sunday (and Friday isn't bad AT ALL.)

Definitely not disappointing, if you ask me (considering the mediocre they've had in previous years, too.)  :-D

I'm leaning towards Obituary but my dumbass friends don't like old school death metal so I'd probably end up going by myself (which I really don't mind tbh)

The show in Brooklyn will be 18+, not 21+. That venue is usually the latter but shows on Friday and Saturday are all 18 and up. It should be awesome. Elfin Sadddle are opening and they're really terrific as well (and very cool live) so it's gonna be a good time.

TFW, which song? they have two on their site, they released one on pitchfork and another on stereogum. also i doubt all the tracks on the album sound like "retarded power-metal" or however you described it.

Heh, I think I called it "weird almost-power-metal wankery" and was referring to the Pitchfork track. Haven't heard the other one but I'll check it out. Maybe it'll change my expectations for the album.

the MONO show was fucking EPIC.  It really was great.  Cool venue, the orchestra was really talented and they added soo much 'oomph' to the heavy parts and beauty to the soft parts.  If any of you have tickets to tomorrow nights show, you have something majorly great to look forward to.

My buddy that went with me had never heard post-rock before.  I told him this was a good way to get into it.

That seems like a strange combination. Women are absolutely spectacular live, though.

Also, everyone who has a chance to ever see Tortoise should go. They are incredible. They played for almost two hours when I saw them.

Post by: TheFuriousWombat on 10 May 2009, 08:23
Holy shit, MONO...
I wrote this on the Temp. Res. forum Friday night:
I loved it! That was an amazing experience. True, the orchestra was a bit drowned out at times but I could always hear them, even when far in the background. I was right in front so maybe they were even more audible further back. In any case, they played an absolutely killer set. I also got to shake the hand of the illustrious Jeremy DeVine. I met people who had flown in from California and New Orleans and even other countries and they all left totally satisfied with having come. I think that's a very good sign of how well things went. I picked up one of those posters to commemorate my going and then came home for the first time in a few weeks and got to see my new MONO vinyl. Definitely a great night.
And then there was last night:
oly shit! Last night was even better than Friday. Friday was in a beautiful venue and had better atmosphere but last night was just pure, overwhelming, immense energy and sound. I was literally inches from Taka the whole time and the level of intensity in the band's performance just blew me away. My ears are still ringing as I type this. Wow. It was the same set list but that's fine, they played only great tracks. Even Follow the Map, a track that was a little meh for me the first few times I heard it, took on a whole new dimension. And seeing Halcyon with an orchestra the way it's meant to be for the first time was so col. When they played Pure as Snow it was probably one of the most visceral live musical moments I've ever experienced. I'm so glad I went both nights. This was so worth it. Plus I met some great people from all over the country aaaand had two lengthy conversations (about EitS, new music, old music, tattoos ect.) and got a hug from none other than Munaf from Explosions. These last two nights are now one of the very top highlights of my history of shows and if both (and last night in particular) weren't the best shows I've ever been too they were really, really close. I'm still having a hard time realizing how frickin awesome it all was.

Apparently I can get a bus ticket to London (cause they're doing it there through ATP as well) for about 10 pounds, a hostel for a couple more, and this ticket for 32.

I'm thinking of making it a weekend trip. There's going to be a choir, a string and horn section, and surprises. I kind of definitely want to go now.

Got back from Sasquatch today. FREAKING AWESOME. I went all 3 days, naturally. The highlights were Gogol Bordello, Silversun Pickups, Crystal Castles, Deadmau5, M83, Santigold, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Doves, Mad Rad, Mos Def, Ra Ra Riot, St. Vincent, of Montreal, Girl Talk, Owl City, King Khan & the Shrines, and Explosions in the Sky.

Some points worth noting:

-Animal Collective's set wasn't all jamming, yay!
-Gogol Bordello went like a half hour long, not ending until Fleet Foxes were supposed to start
-Mad Rad lived up to their reputation (they've been banned from every majoy music venue in Seattle) by spitting on the crowd (and each other), throwing their shoes, bringing only 30 CDs as merch, and at one point, telling some woman that "I'm gonna fuck your vagina with his dick behind that tent."
-Passion Pit is awful live
-During their last song, "Lazy Eye," the Silversun Pickups' guitarist's chord broke, and so they launched into an epic jam session, and when they finally fixed it, the guitarist played with quadruple the intensity that he'd been at the entire show, culminating in the best finale ever. "Lazy Eye" should be 12 minutes long every time.
-Girl Talk invited about 100 people onto his stage to dance with him. Nearing the middle of his set, there was a bigger standing & dancing crowd there than anywhere else that weekend. Also, there was a giant inflatable whale.
-Crystal Castles' Alice was so coked out that all of her vocals were intense, earsplitting shrieks. Luckily, the rest of the show was so effing loud that you could almost ignore her completely.
-Every time I tried to use a porta-john at night, I had to check through at least 3 of them before finding one that wasn't covered in diahrrea and/or vomit and/or beer.

I miss it already.

I didn't think I'd be able to make it, but then I could, so I went and saw Yeah Yeah Yeahs today! It was pretty awesome.  There was confetti and dramatic posing and Dave Pajo, and of course the spitting and microphone deepthroating that one comes to expect from Karen O in a YYYs context. It's Blitz material held up pretty well, and "Zero" is catchy as hell, but dang is it just so much fun when they freak out on a song like "Art Star" or "Date with the Night." Would have been kind of nice to hear an Is Is song or two, but aside from that minor complaint, it was a good time and I came home sweaty and dehydrated.

i'm gonna echo Scarred and say that Sasquatch was fucking incredible. he pretty much hit the nail on the head as far as highlights go...EXCEPT for Black Moth Super Rainbow. their set had some of the thickest, heaviest bass i've ever felt in my entire life. i say "felt" because it really was more felt than heard; i thought my heart was going to vibrate through my rib cage and fall onto the ground. it was fucking incredible. they had a bigass jumbotron screen thingy behind them displaying some of the most awesome/ridiculous/disturbing video i could imagine. my friends and i lit up a joint the second that "Sun Lips" started playing and it was sooooooooooooo goooooooooooooooood. they pretty much played all the songs i wanted them to play.

also, that giant inflatable dolphin/whale that came out during Girl Talk got dragged into the dance tent later that night when Tobacco was playing. it was completely deflated so it was basically just a big plastic sheet on top of a bunch of people dancing their asses off. in a good way.

Girl Talk was fucking amazing. i was gonna leave it out to avoid redundancy but holy shit it was like one of the most awesome things i've ever seen. he wasn't even on the main stage but his crowd was bigger than almost every band that actually was on the main stage. fuck it was so awesome

Okay punk show report.

We get there at 7, blah blah blah blah, hangouts and cigarettes, first band starts a touch after 8. This band is called Dogs Without Borders, and its also apparently their first show. And man, they were good. It started out reminding me of slint or early 90's indie rock type stuff. Then they played a cover song (i dont know of what) which was really fucking good and the guitarist and baritone guitarist (i think he was playing a bari) swiched instruments. After that, they were basically a Faraquet cover band. I thought for a second they had started playing a Faraquet song! They were really good and I expect some good things to come out of this band.

Once they finished me and my friend pat decided we needed more cigarettes so we went go to buy some more. On the way back (we weren't gone a half hour) I called my friend pancho who hung around to see what the status of show was and he said the second band was already on their first song, which surprised the fuck out of me. The next band usually doesn't even think about setting up till after a half hour. I got into the basement near the end of probably their third song. They played one more and that was the end of the set. (these guys, Voyage in Coma, were playing their first show too.) It was some kind of mid tempo screamo but they also played way to fucking loud. I couldn't decipher anything that was going on just due to sheer volume. I was pretty bummed out about this.

I wasn't bummed out for long though, cause Pianos Become the Teeth was next. They play I guess mostly mid-tempo screamo that hints at post rock. And holy shit, were they good. They started off with two new songs and you could just feel how the crowd wanted to go off. But we weren't. Then Pianos played Creatures Of Habit, a song off their split with Ezra Joyce. Once that song got past the quiet intro, the place just went off, which was amazing. They continued the rest of their set with some new songs and even played one extra song! They were absolutely great. Afterward I picked up their split with Ezra Joyce and had a chat with their guitarist. They apparently have a new CD out in 2 weeks so I'm pretty stoked for that. He was also giving away their old album, called the Saltwater EP but nobody was taking it. Honestly, its not that good. But hey, their new songs are pretty awesome so thats okay.

Normally after that set, I would have been apprehensive that the next band might not be as good. However, tonight that wasn't a problem because Pygmy Lush was next. And my god, were they good. And to answer your question Will, they didn't playing any folk songs. It was all punk. I sadly had to leave near the end of the set cause my friend was driving me home and he had to leave. However, what I saw was totally amazing. Those dudes don't fuck around, they know whats up.

Saw ISIS, Pelican, and Tombs on friday night. The show was SO FUCKING GOOD. I was on the front row, and apparently Tombs enjoyed how much I was into it, because the drummer tossed me a drumstick. Pelican was fantastic, they played mostly new songs and songs from the EP. ISIS was WUUUUUUUH SO GOOD HOLY FUCK. They played the entire new album, and other songs like Dulcinea, Carry, and FUCKING IN FICTION YES. ISIS also seemed to appreciate me freaking the fuck out, because after the show was over, the guy from the show Parks and Rec (he lives in Asheville, apparently he is an ISIS fan) came out and gave me a drumstick from ISIS. Then I got to talk to Bryant Clifford Meyer (the keyboardist) and meet Trevor and Bryan from Pelican at the merch booth. All in all, one of the best shows I have ever been to.

Friday - The flaming lips are playing, may attend. May just get drunk and watch everything.

Saturday - Annie Mac and lots of other DJs to attend to. Frightened Rabbit should do the trick as well.

Sunday - Biffy Clyro then the Prodigy with the possible interlude of a Pendulum DJ set and lots more tasty music.


Going to be fucking epic.

The same people who are driving me part of the way there say they promised another person they're meeting there that they'd drive them back, and then can't take me. Fuck. Sorry to be bitching about this on the forum, but missing this festival would suck and I don't wan't the $300+ dollars I've spent on the trip already to go to waste.

I wish I could afford to go to Progressive nation when it rolls through Toronto again, but sadly I can't.  I'm mostly sad because I'd be missing a chance to see Pain of Salvation, probably the only time in the forseeable future I'd have a chance to see them, who I really like (oddly enough mostly because of a song the singer recorded with another band, and not so much because of their own material).  I've already seen Dream Theater, and besides, their new material is kind of dull, and LaBrie pretty much sucked live.  Still though...

Last show I went to see was Paganfest II, with a friend who ungraciously ditched me to hang out, make out with, and get drunk with Blackguard/Profugus Mortis (my friends are classy people yeah).  Didn't matter much, in the end, because I was going to leave early regardless.  Primordial, I'm sorry, just do not interest me, and Korpiklaani are one of the most overrated bands ever.  Moonsorrow, however, absolutely kick ass.

Just got back from Blind Pilot and The Decemberists. Both were exquisite. The new album is TITS live, and the older song set included The Chimbley Sweep, Oh Valencia, Yankee Bayonet, Eli The Barrow Boy, We Both Go Down Together, and all kinds of other goodies. The highlight of the set was the FLAWLESS cover of Crazy On You. Holy fuck do Becky Stark and Shara Worden SLAY the vocals on everything they do. During the chimbley sweep, they did the thing where they let random kids on stage to play guitar, and that was also very awesome. Overall, excellent show.

I instantly got super excited right up to the point of Ticketmaster/Live Nation saying the tickets were already sold out online. I wonder if I call The Wiltern I could get the tickets through that means. Or maybe driving the 2 hours to LA weeks earlier to try and pick them up at the box office. That just sounds like a bitchin' show.

Congrats!  Bonnaroo looks awesome this year.  I really wanted to go down, but none of my friends were down for the road trip.

So the Hold Steady were fucking awesome.  Definitely one of the best gigs I've ever been to.  First off, they played for about an hour and 45 minutes, and played all the songs I wanted them to.  They all looked like they were having a blast; Craig Finn would stand on the edge of the stage looking at the crowd singing along and it'd make him so happy he'd start dancing like a little kid in a candy store.  They played stuff from all four albums.  Some of the songs were just amazing, with the band playing and the crowd insanely into it, screaming along, it made songs like "Southtown Girls" and "Slapped Actresses" even better.  They opened with "Killer Parties, which is a damn good song to open with, and for some reason right now I can't think of what song they closed with.

All around, a sold out show and a band thats into it just as much as the crowd was made for a really great night.  The band that opened, Rock On Dynamite (I think) were pretty good, I talked to them for a bit (super nice dudes) and bought their EP.  I'll probably throw it up on the MF thread tomorrow

Oren Ambarchi, ambioso guitar-electronics freak and member of Sun O))) and Burial Chamber Trio, is going to be making a loud-but-quiet (  :? ) noise in my town next week.  Ace.
Oren was amazing.  Unlike a lot of ambientish artists he really works bass frequencies, which has this weird effect of making the room feel totally full but also sort of empty - the bass was so intense that every shift in tone got a different part of the room resonating, but because there wasn't much happening in the mid-range / typical rock frequencies even a quiet conversation at the bar was pretty obvious.  When he started building up higher noises on top it seemed like a way more intense build-up than your average pile-on-the-distortion crescendo.

Always felt he was slumming it with Sunn O))) but it seems like he's applying what makes them good to his live shows.  Full on body music, but much more interesting than just crushing, repeated chords.  IMO.

I don't often "go" to concerts, because I'm either singing in them, or occasionally recording them (for instance, I'm recording a concert in London next month as a result of someone approaching me through my website on surround recording).  But on Saturday I'm going to an Internet concert from Berlin.

The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, under Rattle, has been persuaded to offer (charged for) live video streaming of their concerts, so for €9.90 I can listen live (once) to their concert on Saturday at which my son is playing (or I can wait for it to go into the archive, after which the same cost gets repeat viewings for 48 hours).  Indeed, so could you watch him, if you wanted; he is playing Dialogues,  the work that the American composer Elliott Carter wrote for him a few years ago (before he passed 100) - see here (http://dch.berliner-philharmoniker.de/#/en/liveconcerts/2009/6/c19/).

Oh god damn that is a brilliant line-up, I'm thoroughly jealous. Not seen BoW 359 in about 2 years, Me And Goliath rip it up live, Hammers are great, fucking Shikari not seem them in something daft like 7 years... Basically, you need to make that hopefully into a definitely or you will be made of regret.

Limpwrist are playing the 1in12 on thursday though so that makes me feel better about not going to any cool Euro fests like that this year, and the Ghostlimb/Graf Orlock tour hits town soon too. Banging.

Handsome Furs, Great Lake Swimmers, Land Of Talk, Bowerbirds, Deer Tick, and Phoenix are other shows I'd like to go to. I might be going to see Handsome Furs again though.

I'm going to the NIN / Jane's Addiction gig in Manchester in like two weeks, so excited to see NIN again, and should be a good opportunity to finally find out if I like Jane's or not. So far I've only heard a few of their songs, mainly from video games, but I have liked what I've heard.

Just now found out Pearl Jam are in Manchester too in August. Just waiting to see if I can score a concert buddy then I'm definitely heading to that, too!

If you get the chance, definitely go see Pearl Jam.  I saw Eddie solo last August, and he was so damn good.  He sounds even better than the recording's live.

Sonic Youth last night at the Electric Factory in Philly.....wow. It just was so fucking loud, sound bouncing off of everything. Plus there were crazy lights and pot which made it so much better. They ended the show with the sickest version of Silver Rocket ever. Definately one of the best concerts I've ever been to.

Saw them in Manhattan last night. They DESTROYED.  My ears will be ringing for days. They pulled out oldies like Tom Violence, Catholic Block, Pacific Coast Highway, friggin Death Valley '69! Also The Eternal holds up awesomely live.

On the docket for next week: Matt & Kim on Thursday, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart on Friday, me being really happy that I have a friend doing an internship in Brooklyn this summer.

Woop! October 3rd in Cambridge. With Lou Barlow opening. Whenever I go to shows in the Boston area, bands seem to open for themselves (see the Lawrence Arms/American Steel tour where Sundowner and the Falcon opened).

Also, my ex snagged me a ticket to Warped Tour, so I'll be going to that with her in three weeks. The Adicts, Nofx, and Flogging Molly? I'll put up with her generic sounding sceney bands to see the Adicts! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

edit: It seems they're only playing the west coast dates. Bad Religion though, they were fun in '07!

Saw Casiotone for the Painfully Alone in a tiny, 50 person chapel the other night. It was great. Owen is an incredibly nice guy who manages to make some dude standing in front of a table of electronics mumbling into a mic exciting, engaging and memorable. He started off playing a couple songs of his own choosing and then played all requests for the next 45 minutes or so. I don't remember the order except for the first four and the last one and I might be forgetting a song or two but he played:

Optimist vs. The Silent Alarm (When the Saints go Marching In)
Natural Light
Man O' War
I Love Creedence
Scattered Pearls
Nashville Parthenon
Hey Jelly
Jeane, if Your Ever in Portland
Bobby Malone Moves Home
Rice Girl Dream
Seattle, Washington
Toby, Take a Bow
White Jetta

Dammit... Okay, uh, I wanted to go see CFTPA, but I couldn't because whenI realised that he was in Montreal, it was too late for me to go because I didn't advise anybody that I wanted to go. (we have a rule in my house that if I want to go to a concert, I have to advise my parents at least 3 days before the concert). That's the second time it happened.

If you don't understand that one, then just fuck it, it's not that important anyways.

Arrrgh! I didn't realise they were touring, and I've got a Marx reading group on the night of the Leeds date! Hopefully it will finish in time for some sass.

Also, why the fuck was I not informed that Army Of... are back? They'd better get the fuck up here sharpish, don't think Eleanor's ever seen them. I am not however jealous of The Get Up Kids, since you are running the risk of them playing loads of MOR shite from On A Wire and christ that would be horrific.

Also also, hiya!

On the other hand, Dolby Anol is playing the Brudenell tomorrow so I can get my dancing shoes on. I'm hoping it will be as ridiculously party as last time, but maybe with fewer tops off crusties.

Greg Gillis puts on a surprisingly awesome show considering the nature of his music.

This.

P.S. I've been trying to see The Hold Steady live for years now but they just never seem to be around!

Yeah, I realised that the structure of the sentence wasn't really making sense.

Also, I might (but that's a big might) travel to Quebec City to go see Beirut and Sting (my mom insists on checking the latter...).

Arrrgh! I didn't realise they were touring

If the Notts date wasn't a monday I'd say come to mine...

Also, why the fuck was I not informed that Army Of... are back?

They reformed just for the Cap Cas date. The Notts show is their last booo! It's Friday, You & elenor are more than welcome to come down!

One of the bands I've listed is my new fella's band. I've had a crush on him for years mostly through watching him play. I finally get to do it & kiss him afterwards. Awesome.

Suprising girls with shows is brilliant.

Damn! Very tempting, I shall do some consulting and pondering. We badly need hangouts and booze anyway. One of my biggest gig cock-ups of all time was deciding to go and get food at a 1in12 all-dayer when I was 18 instead of watching AOFR. Think I might have missed Orrin de Forest as well. Amazingly stupid.

The tops off crusties were alright because a) they weren't near me so I didn't get stinking crustie sweat on me and b) Dolby Anol was liking the topless boys and since he was bringing the party it's only fair he got good times as well.

To wang this back on topic a bit, my friends are starting house gigs soon and their first one will feature the amazing and lovely D. Millard. The ceiling will be too low for his signature stepladder but there should be some classics like 'James Bond Is An Upper Class Copper' and 'Drugs vs Sport' so it will be awesome regardless. I am thoroughly excited.

Saw Casiotone for the Painfully Alone

I am seeing him again Sunday. The first time I saw him it was after his apartment burned down and his cat was missing and he was SO Bummed Out, but apparently the cat came back. I guess Cryptacize is opening, they're on Asthmatic Kitty and also some are members of Deerhoof. Suck it, Deerhoof haters!

(And yes, Hold Steady are awesome and really nice people too. I almost went up to the singer at the bar before I saw them cuz I was drunk and he looks like a billion people I kind of know. It would have been funny though, "HOW DO I KNOW YOU? YOU LOOK REALLY FAMILIAR!!") (And Keiffer, Blitzen Trapper is coming here too on the 21st. Should I go? It is $8. I think it's the night Jodie gets into Fargo)

Had a fucking awesome time at a show yesterday.

It was an early show, probably started at 1:45. It was really last minute so it was hardly promoted, so only three people who weren't in bands showed up, me, my friend, and a dude who just moved here from Germany. So we basically just hung hard for like 3 hours and I saw three awesome bands and I now have a bunch of awesome new friends.

Fuck yeah DIY.

Saw The Antlers last night. I was one of about 15 people in attendance. I thought they were a bit more popular than that, but oh well, made it easy for me to meet the band. It was definitely way better than I could have expected given their sound. My only gripe with set is that they didn't play "Sylvia", but the near 30 minute version of "Bear" more than made up for it. Yup, 30 minutes, and not one of those moments was I close to being bored. Pretty stunning performance.

Festival Report:
Mayhem Fest was pretty fucking amazing, but I would've had Cannibal Corpse headline over Bullet for my Valentine, and Slayer probably should've followed Manson since half the audience left after their set and Manson basically played to an empty ampitheatre.
Still, I was happy he played some of his old stuff and not just the new crap.

ALSO: Killswitch Engage is pretty hilarious live. Like really. I think their guitarist had aviator goggles, a cape and cut off skinny jeans. YEAH.

show thread been a while.

first im pretty psyched for August 3rd. Mogwai is coming to DC! I've never seen them and it's been a while since i've seen a post rock band so I'm pretty stoaked! Then august 7th I get to see Age Sixteen again! I'm really fucking excited for that, they put on an absurd show. A band called Hightide Hotel is playing too and they sound kinda like American Football so that should be a good set too! Then what I'm really really really excited for is August 29th or something because I'm going to see Pianos Become the Teeth, Wren Lloyd, Age Sixteen, Sawhorse, and mnwa (but its spelled in russian and pronounced mischa burton or something.) That is quite possibly the most stacked lineup I've ever seen for a DIY house show and it's going to be absolutely incredible.

August is looking pretty fucking good for shows!

Oh yeah, so uh, Warped Tour. Here's my report, in brief:

Shad - AWESOME. Holy shit.
Bad Religion - getting very old, as is the crowd
Nofx - Drunk and amazing
Big D & The Kids Table - better than the last time I saw them. Much better.
Anti-Flag - the worst live show I've ever experienced, and I accidentally caught the tail end of 3Oh!3's set.

Saw the Hold Steady last night at the Starland Ballroom in Jersey.  They were pretty good, played a lot of stuff of Separation Sunday, including "Don't Let Me Explode", which I would not have guessed them playing and it was great.  I thought the PA system was a little weak though.  Their shows in NYC last month I think were a little better, since the Bowery Ballroom has a better PA and is smaller.  Still a great show though. A band called Titus Andronicus opened up, who are from a town pretty close to mine.  They were cool, though I felt all their songs were a little too long for their own good.  Also, at one point the singer started rambling about two local radio stations, and never really got to a point.  He probably should have just shut up.  I bought their CD, though I haven't given it a rightful listen yet.

I was in this very line, and the show didn't even start until like midnight.  I ended up having to get home way before that but according to some friends it was worth it.

So Japandroids, 3 Inches of Blood, and Dinosaur Jr are coming to my town in the next couple of months, Japandroids and 3 Inches in September and Dinosaur Jr in November.  It's been forever since I've been to a live concert and the only ones I've been too have been pretty huge (White Stripes, Beastie Boys, *cough* Linkin Park *cough*).  Are these guys worth seeing live and what should I know to go to a concert in a small venue.  Or would that be something that deserves it's own thread?
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: TheFuriousWombat on 07 Aug 2009, 05:48
As far as small venues go, I've always felt that I've gotten far more rewarding experiences with them then some giant musical hall or stadium. I personally think it's a lot easier to connect with the music and the performers and, in many cases, the people around you when everyone's jammed into some little space. That's just me though. Of course, it's hard to give advice since people have different tastes but I recommend getting there a bit early and, when doors open, quickly making your way front and center, right up to the stage (touching it if possible, although it has to be quite a small venue for this to be possible usually), and staking out that spot. That's where I like being the most for shows. The good thing about doing that: if it turns out you'd rather be further back, it's much easier to move back then it is to move forward if you're in the middle of the crowd and realize you'd rather be closer.
As for the specific shows: Japandroids played in a garage at my school. It was a lot of fun. I recommend that show. Never seen the other two so I can't comment although I'm sure people here will tell you to go see Dinosaur Jr.

After a long wait (partly down to band sickness) The Decemberists are coming back to the UK!   :lol:

My ticket's for one of the London shows arrived yesterday and although it's not until November I'm pretty excited about seeing them again.

I'm usually a little dubious about seeing bands play a whole album through but Hazards of Love is one of those records that has to be enjoyed in it's entirity!

If anyone has seen them recently playing the whole album live I'd love to hear how it sounded played through!

Blink 182 tonight *ducks from objects being thrown at me* in Pittsburgh.  Road trip with an old friend to go.  We always wanted to see them in concert back in high school.  Our parents were a bit over protective of letting us go to a concert at all. So now that they are together we can finally say say we did.  Say what you want about blink 182 or my taste in them but they are what got me into playing music.

Seeing Blink 182 with Weezer at the end of the month. Pretty excited, though I heard a few of Weezer's new tracks and they SUCK. =(

Other shows I'm going to:
Streetlight Manifesto

A Day To Remember

one of the three: Dinosaur Jr., The Gaslight Anthem, or Teenage Bottlerocket/Cobra Skulls

Possibly Dropkick Murphys up in Vermont (late November)

and my friend/ex said she's dragging me to see All Time Low in Decemeber, because I badmouthed them at Warped Tour.

Holy shit The Books were fucking stupendous. One of the greatest concerts I have ever been to. It was beautiful, moving, smartly funny, sad, and uplifting all at the same time. FUCK. They just jumped SO high on my list of artists to love. I really liked them before this, but now I am just in awe. The live experience just brings out so much meaning and emotion in the songs. Got to meet them after the show and have them sign my poster as well, both are very nice guys. They actually seemed embarrassed at how much the crowd was cheering in-between songs.

Also, to whoever was asking how they pull it off live, Nick Zammuto plays guitar and bass alternatively, and Paul de Jong plays electric cello. They have a sampler that constructs the framework for them to play around, and a large projector screen above them to play awesome/funny/sad/strange movies that are synced up to the songs. It was absolutely incredible and I HIGHLY recommend that you go see them if you get the chance, even if you just like their music a little.

The day before my birthday I will be going to see Rise Against. I'm just annoyed it took me this long to get to see them, because now they're getting poppy and mainstream, and not in a good way.

Celtic Folk Festival in a few weeks. Get to see Penny Whiskey (one of my favourite local bands, excellence all around) and perhaps Emish this time! They are sort of an Irish folk punk band. Yes!

Christine McVie is far and away my least favourite member of Fleetwood Mac so I'm pretty OK with her not being there.

So I'm probably not going to anything for a while until December, when there is basically a show EVERY FUCKING DAY it would seem.

Bumbershoot was a fucking blast. Just the shows I saw:

Day 1:
Natalie Portman's Shaved Head
Matt & Kim
Old 97's
De La Soul

Day 2:
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Michael Franti & Spearhead
MSTRKRFT

Day 3:
Say Hi
Franz Ferdinand
Metric

Gotta say, Franz Ferdinand took the fucking cake for the weekend. Those dudes can out on a goddamn concert. They had the whole thing - giant amps to climb on top of, people spraying water over the crowd, completely off-the-hook lights, and a 10 minute Deadmau5-esque House finale. They might have rocketed to my top 5 shows ever. Yeah Yeah Yeahs & Michael Franti tie for a distant second. (Franti got half a goddamn football field of people all jumping up and down with their arms in the air. Glorious.)

No, but really, they can put on a show and make you dance/rockthefuckout for 2 hours straight without you being tired.

How were NPSH? I've been meaning to go see them next time they tour near me.

NPSH were a blast - despite being on one of the smaller stages, there was still a sizeable dance party happening. This was helped by the fact that they threw a giant inflatable turtle into the crowd, which people then took turns crowd-surfing on.

Just got back from The Weakerthans at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Holy hell it was good! Makes me even happier I'm seeing them tomorrow as well! Two bands, a German group called Tomte and the Canadian band Rock Plaza Central, opened and both put on excellent sets. After being a huge fan of The Weakerthans for years, however, and never having the chance to see them live, their set was one of the better shows I've been to this year.
Setlist, for those who care:

Night Windows
Tournament of Hearts
Our Intrepid Explorer...
Benediction
Reconstruction Site
Aside
Relative Surplus Value
One Great City!
Sounds Familiar
Bigfoot!
Plea from a Cat Named Virtute
The Reasons
Hymn of the Medical Oddity
Left and Leaving
Civil Twilight
(Manifest)

ENCORE 1:
Utilities
Confessions of a Futon-Revolutionist
Pamphleteer

ENCORE 2:
Watermark
Virtute the Cat Explains Her Departure


They didn't play a couple of my favorites, notably Leash, Everything Must Go, History of the Defeated, Sun in an Empty Room, or This is a Fire Door Never Leave Open but after a fairly whopping 21 song set, I definitely can't (and don't want to) complain. Hopefully they'll play some other stuff tomorrow night but I'd even be really happy seeing that same set again (the encores should be different in any case b/c they were deciding which songs to play sorta off the cuff at that point).

hammers weren't really my kinda thing, the really slow parts kinda bored me, but the sheer oppressive heaviness that a mere three people manage to bash out is fucking amazing.  i mean, depressing as fuck, but a hell of a spectacle and experience.  ceremony's set seemed like half an hour of tiny song fragments randomly thrown together, but made up for it with insane performance (especially the singer), and paint it black were pretty kickass (i've been vaguely interested in them for a while, but this gig has got me properly into them!).

There should be four people in Hammers...I think one of them was away in Switzerland, which may explain why there set had so many slow bits in...I will check out Paint it Black though!

I'm excited about the Insect Warfare tour as I've just found out a friend of mine will be doing vocals, but I can't say who as it's still a secret eeeee! Exciting though.

Not enough shows for me to be excited about though. Last weekend saw some awesome bands esp. a.p.a.t & Lavochkin. Different but brilliant.

Ian Svenonious
AIDS Wolf
Duchess Says
Teenage Jesus And The Jerks
Japandroids
Faust (Join in improv session)
Black Feelings
Faust (proper show)
BRAIDS
Cadence Weapon
The Hoof & The Heel

I don't expect to make it to all of those, but it is certainly possible.  Also, there will be a ton of free shows around town, notable at Phonopolis records (http://phonelopie.blogspot.com/).

It's having a wolf right in your cells. Imagine being a werewolf, but with the slight downside that you don't have a fully functioning immune system anymore. A small price to pay in order to reenact scenes from Teen Wolf.

Four times I think?  Definitely one of my favourite live bands.  A favourite was at Pop last year, when one of their guitarists couldn't play, so they had three other guitarists (From Shearing Pinx and Athletic Automaton) step in to play an improv style set.  Their drummer is ridiculously talented, and Chloe (the singer) is entrancing.

Well, for two main reasons. Transportation and money. I don't have any Money now to go to shows, or for taking the bus/Metro. Which means that transportation is a problem too, I'm just 16 so, I can't drive, and I can't ride bikes (sadly). Oh and also, school is a problem too. Since I don't live in Montreal, it takes time to go to a show and come back and I can't afford taking a day off from school.

The shows I listed on my last post (except the Lights show) are all near the Montmorency College, which is not realy that far from where I live, in Laval. And they are in average 14$ each.

So, all I can say is, Joseph, you better enjoy those damn shows. ^_^

Went to see The Horrors and Japanese Motors on Tuesday.

Didn't make it on time for the Japanese Motors, but I did get free sunglasses and stickers from one of the guys when we arrived. The Horrors were spectacular, and sooo bloody loud. After the show the band members were just hanging around in the bar area, so my friend Jean went up to the singer and drunkenly demanded to know why he didn't play "Draw Japan", and he went on to explain to her why he doesn't care for that track...most of which I missed, and Jean was too pissed to explain it correctly to me.

Plus me and my other friend Tad both hugged the guitarist (who was way shitfaced) and bought him shots. Amazingly down-to-earth guys, really improved my already lofty opinions on them. Though I bet they enjoy being able to play small club shows for 15 bucks as relative unknowns in the US, compared to the mobbing they receive across the pond. The rest of my night was fucking awful, but at least I have the show.

In my dream world, Bez has started a supergroup with the tambourine dude from The Brian Jonestown Massacre.  :mrgreen:
I was trying to figure out exactly WHO was in the band. Of course I couldn't understand a THING Shaun was saying. (Subtitles would be needed were it a concert film). I think that was Rowetta not sure if that was his bro on bass. I'm no Mondays expert. There was another cat on the keys that also played some guitar and some chick who played keys for the Furs was also in on at least one song w/ the Mondays. I took some pics and a vid snippet but I've not gotten them off the card as of yet. I think that was Moose on gtr. But I really am talking out me arse.

Went to gig on Monday:

Johnny Foreigner were ace as usual. New album coming out in the next couple of weeks, get on that shit.

Tellison were also amazing. Also new album out in a couple of weeks, get on that shit too.

Japanese Voyeurs were pretty boring but i didn't expect much anyway so whatever.

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone at the Northcote Social Club (a really nice venue very close to where I live) tomorrow night. So excited! I got into Casiotone literally, and coincidentally, about three weeks after he/they last toured Australia, so I've been looking forward to this.

Also the Decemberists are coming to Australia next year. I'm really torn about this. The tickets are pricy (around A$60) but I've been really wanting to see the Decemberists for ages. I love three out of five of their albums. BUT: I really really don't like their latest, and this being a tour on the back of their latest album odds are the set list is going to lean heavily towards songs from that. I don't really want to spend a lot of money to see a band I like playing songs I don't like. Decisions, decisions.

Chances are that they'll play Hazards of Love in it's entirety. You may want to factor that in to your considerations.

Trying to find out more information I checked on the venue's website, and according to that they'll "draw from their full catalogue", so I think I'll give it a shot. Even though it's at Billboard, which is far from the best venue in town for a band like the Decemberists.

Oh god The Books was so absolutely perfect.  They played almost all new material (except for Take Time and That Right Ain't Shit) and all of it was super amazing and beautiful and THE VIDEOS MAN THE VIDEOS were at different times interesting and beautiful and quirky and trippy and really sad and hilarious and then the last song they played (think it was called "The Owls with Knees") basically put all those elements into one and asdlfkj;aldgkj;lkj;qepwoiu

^ This is literally exactly what I thought when I saw them earlier this year. Most of the new material is from the "Lost and Safe" album, but they did play a bunch of new ones from the unreleased album as well.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: KickThatBathProf on 30 Nov 2009, 14:26
Yeah Owls was the only one from Lost and Safe they played I think.  Lemme see if I can remember the unreleased songs....

"Meditation"
"Group Therapy" (this one was really good)
"We Bought the Flood" (this one was saaaaaaaaaaaaaad)
There was one with a lot of goose calls in it that was funny.
There was another one that featured the Talkboy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talkboy) that was actually really disturbing but also funny.
There was another song that I don't remember with a bunch of video loops in the background.

But yeah the videos were beautifully synchronised and I don't think I've been to a better concert, ever.
Title: Re: You people go to shows, right? What future shows are you excited about?
Post by: Koremora on 30 Nov 2009, 15:04
The one with the talkboy was "A Cold and Freezing Night", that was the one with the little kids talking about killing if I remember correctly.
I know one of them was called "Classy Penguin", which was awesome. I recognize the other named ones, just not the other 2 you couldn't remember.

I'm not really excited about it, but it's really cheap, and I haven't been able to go to any show in a long time due to college, and I just want to go listen to some music (crappy or not--I admittedly don't know much about these guys apart from myspace songs, and from my knowledge that the lead singer's also in The Starting Line) and be a part of a big community of music listeners again.  And I'm dragging some friends along, so if they suck we can at least make fun of them.

I also really want to see Bela Fleck play, but he's going to be ridiculously expensive, so I'll probably give it a miss.

I just watched that video of him in Africa, it's really amazing. He seems like such a good natured guy, too. How much are tickets to see him? (just out of curiosity, I won't be able to afford them)

Also, the guy I was watching it with popped out with, "All this music sounds really Caribbean." I responded with, "Yeah, where do you think they got the black people in the Caribbean from?"

I saw her last month! I don't think she is doing full-band shows right now though. It's just her and another dude on guitar I believe. Super intimate and shit.

Yeah, she's great! Saw her in a tiny one room space here on campus opening for Phil Elverum. Actually...Fred Squire opened, Julie Doiron played next, and then the two of them with Phil Elverum played the entirety of Lost Wisdom, and then Phil did solo stuff. The point is, Julie Doiron is very cool and puts on a great, intimate show.

Mountain Goats in April (http://handsometours.com/upcoming-tours/the-mountain-goats).

I mean it's not like John Darnielle doesn't bring his guitar out to Australia at least once a year, but given that the quality of a Mountain Goats show tends to fluctuate between Very Good and Life Affirmingly Amazing, it's always something I look forward to.

No, I'd see them in NYC.  However, it looks like tickets are already sold out :| in the long run, that's probably good because I can't really afford it to begin with, but still, damn.

The only one I have my tickets for already is P4K Festival (PAVEMENT. OH MY GOD PAVEMENT. YES.) which apparently already sold out of 3-day passes in less than a week - I won't be surprised if the one-day passes for Sunday (aka Pavement) are gone soon too. Depressingly I just bought a ticket for myself and I don't even know if any of my friends are going - I know some people who were thinking about going but I don't think they have tickets yet and I don't know if they'll want to do it if they can only get single-day. FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUU

I'm also probably gonna hit up Ted Leo and Spoon shows next month in Detroit, might go to St Vincent too (only just started listening to her but seems pretty cool and the show's cheap).

I'm really hoping Man or Astro-man? will announce some more shows closer to me, I was stoked when I heard they were playing. So far I think they're just doing Atlanta, Birmingham, and SXSW.  Not getting my hopes too high, Michigan sucks for concerts. There's so many tours right now I'd love to see but I can't afford to travel to Chicago or Ohio for everything.

That's about five years' worth of touring to Australia right there, and you've got it in one festival with more to come. You're spoiled.

Also, it's British Sea Power week! Shit yeah! I found out when I went to collect my ticket that it was actually the first ticket sold for the gig, which is kind of cool and kind of embarassing too. It's not like I was hovering over the keyboard, waiting for the tickets to go on sale! It's just I happened to be online and I noticed it'd gone after midnight, which meant it was technically the day the tickets started selling, so I went to the venue's website because just so that I could get the ticket and not have to worry about it later.

I wonder if they'll let me keep it?

I just realised British Wildlife fest is only next month, I always presume fests are in the summer. Line-up's really good this year:
THE ACUTES, ALRIGHT THE CAPTAIN, A MIDDLE SEX, ASHTRAY NAVIGATIONS, BILGE PUMP, BLACKLISTERS, BLOOD CRIPS, CASTROVALVA, DIVORCE, HANK HAINT, HIPSHAKES, HIRED MUSCLE, HOUSE OF JOHN PLAYER, HUMAN HAIR, HUNTING LODGE, KHUDA, KOGUMAZA, MAN FROM URANUS, MAX TUNDRA, MUTANT APE, NAPOLEON IIIRD, NOTORIOUS HI-FI KILLERS, OX SCAPULA, PART CHIMP, PALEHORSE, PNEU (France), QUACK QUACK, RUN, WALK!, SERIOUS SAM BARRETT, SETH COOKE, SHIELD YOUR EYES, STUART BANNISTER, THAT FUCKING TANK, TWISTED, TWO MINUTE NOODLES, ULTIMATE THRUSH, UPRIGHTS, WOODERSON, WONDERSWAN, WRONGBOT.

Admittedly it is a bit of a case of the usual suspects but I will never tire of seeing the likes of Bilge Pump, Blood Crips, Two Minute Noodles and Quack Quack, and that's an awful lot of good bands for a measly £15.

They only just started breaking ground a couple months ago and it won't be done until 2020 at best. Also, a quick search of rent prices in San Francisco yields a per-bedroom cost almost completely equivalent (and in some cases cheaper) than Livermore.

Gogol Bordello are playing near you? Lucky. I'd love to see them. They've played twice in the Bay Area within the last year. In '08 they played at Slim's. I don't see any tour dates in the near future, but if they come back to the Bay anytime soon, I'm taking that day off from work.

tl;dr I am jealous

Guys, dilemma.

Mayer Hawthorne and Passion Pit

Beach House.

This is a serious question

Seen Mayer Hawthorne.

Don't give a fuck about Passion Pit.

Passion Pit is sold out, so I can't go with more than one friend using the 2 tickets I already have.

Beach house is not.

I don't feel much like dancing, but fun music is fun, and I feel like Beach House could just put me to sleep.

Anyway I really just wanna see Dexy's live, but that ain't finna happen.

To either? I have tickets for one already but maybe want to see the other one more.

This is not a question of like, having doubts about my desire to attend a live music experience.

Just which music experience would be more enjoyable and memorable in a live setting.

So Dropkick Murphys last night was pretty good, considering the opening 3 songs played were 3 of the 4 songs I knew by them.  First off, the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ is a pretty cool place.  Great part of the city, the theater itself was beautiful.  The sound inside was decent, not amazing, not awful.  The Murphys came out on fire.  About 5-6 songs into the show, the singer started yelling at a guy all the way down in the front about something during a song.  When the song was over, he yelled at the guy again.  I don't really know what the guy was doing, but it was enough to piss the band & the bouncers off.  Then, about :30 into the next song, all the sound goes out.  All of it.  The band waited it out for a few minutes, then walked off the stage.  The house lights kept coming on and off, and no one really knew what was going on.  The crowd started getting pissed.  Finally, after at least 20 minutes, the band came back on, played two songs, and then announced that the fire alarm had been pulled.  They thought the guy they yelled at pulled it.  It sucked but at least it was kinda entertaining.  The rest of the show was pretty good.

I thought the Ukrainian Federation show on Sunday was pretty good despite (1) the wooden pews; (2) Neal Morgan a.k.a. the most pretentious barefoot drummer on earth; (3) the opener.  Yes, I'm calling Morgan pretentious in the context of a Joanna Newsom show.

Also, if you think Phoenix is bad, in a few weeks I see spoon at Soundstage, formerly The Docks.  In an all ages show.  Meaning that the drinking area is cordoned off.  Pity me.

I don't know anything about Neal Morgan except that he was really funny and friendly when Joanna Newsom had to tune her harp for about 8 minutes and left him to his own devices to talk to the audience. I couldn't see his feet. There was water dripping on him from the ceiling for basically the entire show.

What was the setlist like at the show you saw? They could only play for about an hour and fifteen minutes on Saturday. I think they had to be done by 9.30.

Yeah, I saw them the last time they came out here and even though it was in an outdoor festival context they were phenomenal. The prospect of seeing them indoors, and playing Doolittle in its entirety, is almost jaw-droppingly exciting. It's the only show I could possibly imagine where I paid more than A$90 without even thinking about it.

You guys got fucked royally at the Phoenix show, to quote this Globe & Mail article (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/arts/an-all-too-brief-encounter-with-a-one-of-a-kind-pop-heroine/article1500992/): "By then it was obvious that this show should have happened in a proper theatre, with no time limit placed on a singer whose latest album (Have One On Me) runs over two hours. For her to land at the Phoenix was a comprehensive failure by her management, her booking agent, and the promoter."  What the hell kind of venue has an "internal curfew" that ends at 9:15pm on a Saturday anyway?

I don't remember the exact setlist at my show but it seemed that the set was all stuff off the new album including Kingfisher and Daddy Longlegs, and the encore was Emily.  Which is a hell of an encore, really.  Set + encore went for a little longer than 1.5 hours I think, although I'm not sure.

Scary, that's pretty cool that you got to meet the arrangers after the show, how did you manage that?  Fake a press pass on your home PC again?  Well done.  I have nothing against Neal Morgan the person (I think they did that thing where Newsom tuned and Morgan joked with the audience at almost every show this tour), it just annoys me that he goes out of his way to reflect Newsom's ... preciousness with exaggerated drum antics, and I still maintain a strong belief that he cannot effectively keep a beat on his own set for any sustained period.

Oh no, I'm talking about the actual show time. Cause Morgan and Francesconi** were talking/goofing with the audience and yeah, people were asking serious and goofy questions,  I raised my hand and asked a queston (?).

**Don't forget that Morgan and Francesconi are the arrangers.

And yeah, uh, you were at the Sunday show, right? She started with Jackrabbits if I'm not mistaken. Continued with two songs (or three) on the piano, one that you can find on Vimeo and the other was Good Intentions Paving Co. She did two songs from her first album: Sadie and The Book of Right-On. Last song was Emily, encore was a song I forgot the name at the moment (someone requested Only Skin). And yeah. that's from the top of my head though.

I didn't hear the audience member request Only Skin, I just heard her start laughing and say "I would if I'd practiced it."  Heh.  There are a lot of words to that one.  We were up on the balcony so I didn't hear most of the audience questions.

Just bought tickets to see Pearl Jam at Madison Square Garden.  Tickets were expensive and I hate the Garden (every time I see a show there I leave saying "I'm never coming to the Garden again" but I really want to see them, plus it was the first show in forever I didn't have to FIND someone to go with or persuade my friends or anything like that.  Plus, Black Keys are opening!

You know... um here's a real life message I got on the internets about our show last night at our local rednek pool hall.
Quote from: some twat
To: illicitizen ([email protected])

Apologies for not showing up at your show tonight after clicking "yes".  I suppose we got there too early - around 9:35.  The parking lot was completely empty and there was a bearded guy standing on the sidewalk talking to the sky.  Decided not to stop this time.  Hope it went well.
I'm not going to dignify it with a response but I really just wanted to say, "stay in your fucking exurb enclave and watch TV or go listen to some dadrock blues whilst having a choco-tini you pussy assed mother fuckers." BTW, this was from a drummer that we entertained playing with. Good luck with the fern bar circuit, bitch. /RANTOFF

Joanna Newom was brilliant! Played a whole bunch of songs including the whole first disc of Have One on Me except '81 and a few others from the album and then Peach, Plumb, Pear, The Book of Right On, and Inflammatory Writ from Milk Eyed Mender. Nothing off Ys sadly. Was supposed to play Monkey and Bear but one of the pedals on her harp broke so she couldn't :-( That aside it was a really amazing show. Didn't hurt that I was about 20 feet away from her the whole time.

I am going to see eyehategod also. I'm very excited, I've been stuck in the middle of the country for a month away from things like fun & partying & people who can make jokes about Geddy Lee. It is going to blow my socks off.

Also hoping to see Rolo Tomassi & Trash Talk. & possibly Flight of The Conchords.

oh man I saw FotC at Sasquatch in '08, waited all day at the front of the pit for their set. so worth it. they KILLED. and looked so flabbergasted that the entire gorge was screaming when they came out. also when a chick in front of me threw her bra at them and it got caught in jemaine's guitar and he threw it at bret.

when their set was over it was the saddest moment of the weekend.

anyway to make this relevant to your post SEE THEM LIVE they are fantastic. a lot of people complain about their show and say shit like "Waahh all they do is play their songs" but dude. they are like, a band. that's the point, rite?

You could probably go to a Joanna Newsom show with suit made out of dollar bills and emerge intact.

Sweeping generalizations aside, I've not been to her shows, but $75 - $100 or so usually covers most of what's desirable from what bands offer, unless you want all her T-shirts

Post by: scarred on 24 Mar 2010, 22:15
well, I said what's desirable, not what's fiscally responsible. I generally never exceed 20 bucks or so, and that usually ends up translating to just a t-shirt unless it's a band I really, really like.

They were sold out of the new LP when I saw her, and all the shirts - though well designed - didn't appeal to me. I imagine they've got new supplies of the LP though.

Abe Vigoda show was disappointing but only because of Circumstances™

They were opening for Vampy Weekend who I didn't want to see but the friend I was goin with did.  My window busted on the way there so that I couldn't close it, so then we had to go get his car so none of my stuff would get stolen.  I ended up only hearing half of Bear Face and then no more Abe Vigoda.  Vampy Weekend proceeded to suck.

May 19 seeing Eluvium in NY...playing as a TRIO!! I'm so fucking excited!!
And then MONO in June at least once, maybe two or three times depending on what else is going on.
Aaaand maybe Stars whenever they tour for their new album. Not a bad live show, that.
And then hopefully Wolf Parade who also put on a killer show and Wintersleep who should be touring for their newest. The latter two toured together a couple years ago and it was pretty awesome.
LCD Soundsystem in NY would be good. Playing surprisingly small venues relative to status but I'm not complaining. Except I probably will be when tickets sell out instantly.
All very tentative.

Last week I saw Beach House in Minneapolis, with opener Bachelorette.  Bachelorette was okay if not terribly compelling, but she had an adorable Kiwi accent. She had a lot of very carefully constructed songs that she put together with a loop pedal, a few instruments and a fairly powerful voice. The she played reminded me of the first time I saw St. Vincent, before she was touring with a band. 

Beach House were excellent. The venue was full of folding chairs, but after their third song everyone stood up. I danced around, not like frantically or like I would a dance show, but the fact that the music moved me in that way at all was sort of surprising, as I tend to think of Beach House as a pretty relaxing affair.  I also was apparently on the verge of forgetting how much I love Beach House before I went to the show; the friend who I'd planned to go with flaked out on me and I was getting anxious about going to the show alone, but the band just lit up my insides like warm honey. So worth it. Every song went off brilliantly.

This Sunday I'm going to see Major Lazer with Rusko and I'm ridiculously pumped. I'm just going to sweat my brain out of head it'll soak into everyone else and we'll dance and feel and oh god it's gonna be great

They played two encores. Two genuine encores with people refusing to stop applauding and stop cheering and stop pleading for more until the band came out and played more. The last song they played was "Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton". There was no Insane Clown Poesy.

This is awesome! I was kind of expecting John to play some keys on the last tour based on him basically playing nothing but keys on the Satanic Messiah and Black Pear Tree EPs which came out not long before those shows but he didn't, not that I was complaining.

Haha, when I saw him someone shouted freebird, and he started playing it. "to whomever just shouted that, if you didn't recognise that, than you sir, are a poser."

Guys, I saw These New Puritans tonight for free. They were alright. Lots of drum banging which was kinda cool, but a really short set with no opening act, I'm glad I didn't pay the 14 quid entry fee.

...and then their drummer passed out.

Although this would be a better ending to a good joke, it was the unfortunate ending to my Friday night as You Say Party! We Say Die!'s Devon Clifford fainted after just four songs. Dude was carried out on a stretcher and then I walked home. Blooo.

I'm pretty jealous.  I thoroughly enjoy Casiotone for the Painfully Alone

Freelance Whales in my local record store was awesome, if extremely over crowded (record store day last year was nowhere near this crowded when they had The Spinto Band playing).  I loved how they seemed to play a little game of musical chairs with their instruments between many songs.  I also love that all of them sung most of the lyrics (even if two of them were extra quiet about it).  It made a really nice vocal sound.

I also happened to catch a local band called "Diego Paulo" who are absolutely sweet.  When their new album drops in a month I'm totally buying it.

I'm pretty jealous of this.  I passed the tickets by when they initially went on sale because I was short on funds and did not know if I'd like their new album.  Now said album has leaked and it's absolutely terrific and the tickets are all gone.   :-(  I even looked on ticketsnow/stubhub and the cheapest I found was $58 per, which I don't think I'd pay to see anyone.

Holy shit guys.

My best friend's family goes to the Jazz & Heritage Festival in New Orleans every year. This year, his sister can't go because she's swamped in schoolwork.

Which means that they have an extra ticket to the festival, an extra hotel room, and an extra round-trip plane ticket from NYC to NOLA, all of which he just offered me for free.

Holy shit.

Only problem is, the plane ticket might be non-transferable, so I'm going to have to cross my fingers while they barter with The Man to let me on board.

But if that works out I'm fucking going to Jazz Fest!

Yeah, I was looking at Porcupine Tree myself, but my wife didn't seem to thrilled about it so I didn't get tickets.   Maybe I'll go anyway.  My kid asked to go see Gwar there on the 18th of June.  Seems a shame to spray fake blood on such a nice venue, but whatever.     I'll also be down at the Canal Club this Friday because she's got a gig subbing for someone who couldn't make his own show.  Don't know the name of the band or when, just Friday in Richmond, I'll be watching her.

Nab, he's too busy tweeting about how videogames aren't art.

But I think they are art! Way to read, lameburger.

Actually I haven't been posting because after seeing a Mountain Goats show, my feeble attempts at stringing words together in sentences just end up with me feeling very inadequate indeed. The Dude Is A Raconteur. He Is The Raconteurest.

Also, the reports are true, John Darnielle is playing keyboards on stage and he is rocking that shit in all of the ways. They opened with 1 Samuel 15:23 (the opening track off of the most recent LP) and he was all standing hunched over the keyboard, one foot perched on the piano stool, swaying and jive and stabbing at the keys like a warlock over a boiling cauldron, grinning like a madman. He told many stories between songs and teased people with the prospect of playing "Dance Music" which is my favourite Mtn Gts song ever, but then he did not play thatm he played another song (something off of Tallahassee, I'm horrible with song titles). But it was OK because then he played it later. He is good like that. I had the most gigantic smile on my face the entire time, I'm sure I was a sight to see. Even during the incredibly depressing songs. Later on he spent a good half a verse singing directly to my girlfriend and I was quite jealous.

Also I saw Regina Spektor on Wednesday so now I am feeling extra inadequate! But also good because they were both amazing shows and I want to steal both Regina and Mr. Darnielle and make them my pets. I would love them forever.

Dead Meadow were rad.  Totally worth having to wait for another bus in the cold for like fifty minutes (bus broke down on the way home at 2 am)

got a t-shirt and the Three Kings double album on LP which came with a dvd and an address to legally download the album (which is a bit of a waste considering I downloaded it from here a few days ago, but still)

highlight of the show: hearing them play Sleepy Silver Door complete with massively extended soloing, and craziness on bass and drums.
