Forgot to mention, I saw Los Lobos with Mariachi Garibaldi opening up (14 members on a tiny stage). Fun show, even though LL is comprised of a bunch of old fat guys now. (Except the drummer - original must have had a coronary?)

La Dispute and the Menzingers next month.

The only downside is that they're both touring as support for Hot Water Music, and this stop is an off day for HWM. =(

hell fucking yes it is. i saw him solo a few years ago, and it was the second strongest performance I've seen (second only to Rammstein, who is pretty fucking hard to top performance-wise)
Wait... Rammstein?
uh...yes?

Yeah... Regardless of what you think of the music: Their shows are amazing. It's just a fact of life. Haven't seen them live myself but I own all their DVDs and even if their shows happen to be only a portion of the awesomeness displayed in those DVDs.... That's still fucking rad.

I'm sure there will be several local shows between now and then at various local basements and bars and such, but the next one that i've planned ahead to make sure to keep the night free for is Inspecter 7 and Mephiskapheles at Asbury Lanes on April 20th. I never got to see Meph the first time around back in the 90's and then last year they played a one off show on a boat in NY that I wanted to go to, but I had to be across the country in New Mexico the week it happened. So this time I'm hellbent on seeing them. (pun perhaps slightly intended based on their whole satanic schtick).

Waaahhhhhh.....The Postal Service is on tour and coming to Brooklyn this summer. And tickets are $50. And the train ride there will cost $35.

Guys....why do shows I want to see have to happen when I'm broke?

Wow, I'd love to see them! But are they going to stand on opposite sides of the stage and email the show back and forth?

Yeah, I've seen them before too, they're fucking great! I'm going to see them later this year too, since my friend is booking the next stop in their tour. Also I bartend for him so it's free!

Went to see Enabler, Martyrd÷d and Rotten Sound yesterday.

Enabler was FUCKING AWESOME. Holy shitballs. My new favourite band, and one helluva way to kick off the night.

Martyrd÷d was... Dissapointing. Everyone except the drummer were clearly wasted out of their minds, so what followed was a fairly short set that seemed very "Phoned-in" and lacked the sheer white-knuckle fury and passion their records have. Also featured a completely pointless Dissection cover. This was a real bummer for me, since this band and their material really means a lot to me. "In Extremis" is painfully close to being my favourite record of all time, and to see the band behind it even literally falling over themselves on stage was painful.

Rotten Sound. What can I say?! This band has been grinding for nearly 20 years now and holy fuck it shows. The band went on without so much as a line- or soundcheck and proceeded to completely DEMOLISH the venue as if it was a total cakewalk for them, which to be fair it probably was, given the amount of live experience this band has. Calling them a "well-oiled machine" would be doing them a disservice. Machines can't be this tight, no matter the amount of lubrication. Every break, every staccato piece and riff was so mind-bogglingly on point it was profoundly humbling to someone who thought his own Grind band was tight live. Holy shitsnacks it was amazing.

Here's hoping Jimmy Vaughn and/or Steve Miller turns up too.

I had VIP tix to see Gaga last week, was going to take the whole family ( wife, girls 18 and 14) but that fell through.

Recently took the family to see DEVO and Blondie, had 2nd row center seats.

Patiently waiting for Melt Banana to come back to the states.

I have tickets to see Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds in October. I was dubious about the venue size to begin with but I saw My Bloody Valentine there a short while ago and it was incredible (ok I just wanted to name drop there!)

Also I have a (am a) +1 on the guest list for Efterklang in Bristol this weekend!

Michael BublÚ will be coming to Brooklyn in September- the week after my birthday. I want to go see him SO MUCH.


Also, lately I have had the musical tastes of an old lady. And I don't care. You crazy whippersnappers, get off my lawn!

she does seem like she'd be fun to hang out with regardless of whether or not you dig her music. she was hilarious when she was interviewed on Conan recently and I've caught a few episodes of the show documenting her tour. My wife is a fan and I got her tickets for the PNC Bank Arts Center show for her birthday, but am not going.

Next show I'm really excited about is Nato Coles & The Blue Diamond Band. I just learned yesterday that they were touring out this way again and I love everything Nato does. Mainly I would just always see his previous couple bands and only got to see this current one once before. It'll be great to see them at a proper venue since the house show I saw them at that time got shut down by the cops pretty early into their set.

every time I see this thread I'm tempted to post about the shows I play at, because while I'm definitely there to rock out, have fun, and maybe make the grade, I am also there to see bands and support burgeoning talent. if I did that though I'd be posting in here about every other week.

anyway, there was this band we played with tonight called the Closers. they're on tour from L.A., they're unbelievably nice, and while they may not be the most original thing I've ever heard, they were good.

Yeah, I could do that with all the local shows I go to as well. There is a pretty cool festival coming up in town, Launch, with a couple days of some acts I'd like to see, just don't know if I can afford it at the moment. Imagine Dragons, Blonde Redhead, Minus the Bear, Girl Talk, and about 20 others including some local acts on the bill.

BTW, Patrick, I'm trying to connect with you on FB for that idea of making a group to help bands swap gigs from the Bay Area and Central Valley.

Holy crap that was awesome. Amaranthe absolutely stomped their hour long set and the openers were incredible as well. Can't believe that was only a $15 ticket. Snagged one of the posters (right off the door) and got Kobra and the Lotus to sign it and got Elyse from Amaranthe to sign it (the rest of the band didn't come out.) she gave me a hug after signing the poster!

Day one of Riot Fest was a fucking blast. Closing shows were FOB and Danzig. Youngest and my wife went to FOB and Oldest and I went to Danzig, he started 15 min before FOB. He was just as big an ass as I remembered and after about 15-20 min my daughter and I looked at each other and said fuck it, this sucks, lets go see FOB. They put on a fun show. So Unicorn was right, I did like FOB.
