They need to come back to Edinburgh.

Am I the only one that finds it funny that they're skipping a shit load of major cities, but going to Northampton? (No offense Jeph)

Man, nobody comes to Adelaide unless they're forced to. And then they play in a venue far too small that sells out in an hour (or, fifteen minutes in the case of Kings of Leon). And then they yell out "Thank you Melbourne!" (if they're terrible band Jet).

Guess I'll try to see them in Philly. The Troc is a decent sized venue, certainly not too big anyway. I'm a little bummed b/c last time they came to Philly they played the Starlight Ballroom and I missed the show for some reason. It would have been awesome since the Starlight is pretty intimate, compared to most of the place they're playing now.

What you need to understand is that Adelaide is an awful, awful place. They were probably trying to pretend they were in Melbourne.

Tip for Perth/Adelaide peoples: It's really not that bad, honestly. I used to live in Darwin. No one -at all- ever goes there. The 3 years I lived there, we didn't get a single act of any note whatsoever.

That's not a tip. That's just making myself feel better that, even with shitty music scene aside, I don't live in Darwin.

Actually, that would be true for most bands on the Mylene Sheath label. Many of the bands are from Illinois, Ohio and more! A lot of great stuff too.

HOLY FUCKBALLS

MOGWAI = BEST LIVE BAND EVER <333333333333333333333333

No idea what their setlist was (songs I recognised: 2 Wrongs, Friend of the Night, Batcat, like Herod, Jim Morrison, Space Expert, I Know You Are) but man, it was so entertaining and so massively rocking. I always thought these guys were a bit tame on record, to be honest, but they were just so freaking huge! Epic clean parts, huge walls of noise and massive riffing. Watching them kick all of their distortion pedals on at once in Like Herod.. wow! HUGE. And then the riffs of Batcat. Unfortunately most of the sedate perth crowd wasn't as keen to headbang and get all loose as I was, but whatever. Amazing gig, far better then I expected.

Also: nowhere near as loud as I'd thought? I was expecting some brutal volume, but it really wasn't too bad.

Retro: I was front row, too. Where were you? I was pretty much straight in front of the bassist; the dude with long blondish hair headbanging rabidly.

Oh man Godinpants, I saw them in Sydney too, I was in the second row sans earplugs and it was amazing! I think that Jim Morrison was perhaps the best thing ever to start with, with the little keyboard bit at the start building into awesome, and the last few notes of Batcat screaming out so hard and then ending in blackness was pretty much the best thing that has ever happened to me.
