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

Me too! Yay! Also, Johnny is considering driving down here to see that same show, so you should help me nag him to ensure that he does.

Aw fuck yeah. I'm sure you've heard enough about RH's live shows but still. Prepare to be blown away.

Seeing them at All Points West in August. So fucking excited.

Not quite as cool as MBV but I'm seeing Stromkern tonight. oontz oontz

You'd think that of all bands, Priest could choose a wicked opener. But I suppose, in the end, they don't choose as much as the record execs do.

it could be worse. Maiden had Funeral For A Friend supporting once (I didn't go)

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 yeah, if all goes well today I will see Mission of Burma tonight. I'm not that familiar with their stuff but I'm excited anyway since I hear they always put on a great show.

Also, Yndi Halda really needs to announce a DC show. I really want to see them in August.

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 proudly stood and soaked in "the holocaust" without the earplugs that were handed out. Was left with a strange feeling where I wanted to listen to radio static on the drive home.

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.

Opeth, Meshuggah, Judas Priest all in September. Unfortunately Down are playing on the same night as Meshuggah.

I'm psyched that Cavalera Conspiracy is opening for Priest.

I find it strange that even though I rarely listen to metal anymore, it still makes up the vast majority of major international bands I see.

Ooh I saw Malajube live at Celebrate Brooklyn last year after being into their studio albums for a while. They were terrific.

Their frontman is really shy and it's endearing.

The Dandy Warhols in August

Yesssss.

I was this close to scoring backstage passes for their New York show, as my lady friend works for EMI. But then they had to do a stupid thing like leave/get kicked off of their label.

Holy shit, I didn't know that Opeth and Down were coming to Australia.

Man, and to think I wanted to save this money.

I was just writing a post about how pissed-off I was that Snowman are playing down the road from me next week before they piss off to London, but I couldn't go as it was on the same night as a house party in my house... then I noticed they're playing for two nights. So yeah, wooooo Snowman next week!

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 am pretty happy right now.
