I'm thinking of going with Wilco too, because they're playing 20 minutes from my house and therefore I won't have to spend MORE money on Train tix to NYC.

If you see Wilco, report back and tell us if their new material is as silly as the album title suggests.

I've seen youtube videos of "One Wing" and it's a badass song.

Also, "Wilco (the album)" is a great title.

I tweeted about those two bands last night, noting that I always get them mixed up and wonder when Isis started having lyrics before remembering that Pelican is the instrumental one.

Also, I much prefer Pelican to Isis.

These two lovely ladies are playing at the same show (separate performances) Sunday. Uni and her Ukelele is just a lot of fun, and Ricky Berger is amazingly versatile and a stunning performer. Can't help but smile afterward.

Man it was great.

Guys, tonight I'm seeing Basement Jaxx. I'm quite excited about this.

Guys, should I go see general admission Obituary with The Berzerker, Krisiun, Warbringer and Goatwhore OR see Porcupine Tree stuck with shitty seats and King's X ?? 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)

Also, Sonic Youth are apparently coming round' here in June, might go see em'.

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.

speak in first-person!

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.

I've seen them four times in the past and was never anything less than overwhelmed with awesomeness every time. I can't imagine how epic these two shows are going to be.

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.

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.

For the rest of your years, you will feel a twinge of guilt upon remembering this.

Heh, I didn't meet the whole band but I have in the past after shows and I did say hi to and shook hands with Taka outside the venue on Saturday before the show. That's good enough for me!
