Are those reviews of the show with or without the backing band?

I really, really wish I could make it to M83 but that's impossible for me.   :(  
 
 BUT, I will be at the Swervedriver show. Can't wait for this!
 
 BTW, when did Snail join Swervedriver?

sorry -- been busy all day! but youll be happy to know for all of a few seconds i thought of you and what youd be missing. the presets were just brilliant. its hard to realize how just 2 guys can make music so f'ing great. the drummer is quite cool - plays some of the stuff standing up and plays keyboards on a few songs. the lead singer is just awesome. he was wearing this bright neon pink jacket with a shirt with lip prints on it (all in hot pink). under the lights it looked glowing. When he wasnt playing the keyboards he was dancing up a storm.
 
 The place felt like webster hall (as in it was the first time i felt the floor moving). everyone was dancing - Im pretty sure it was impossible not to. The new songs sound brilliant live. Ive not stopped listening to them. I met a photographer at the show and I know he got some incredible pictures. Im not sure when hes posting them - but you may wanna check out www.santiagofelipe.com (http://www.santiagofelipe.com) (if rob (sal_paradise) is reading this- the guy totally reminds me of you - even from where you are)... btw Rob - where the F were you last night??
 
 Ill post some of my pics when I can.
 
 And Walter Meego - 3 guys from Chicago were brilliant openers. they were a nice complement. i highly recommend checking them out. the only complaint i had was that their myspace page had much more dance-y tracks. they slowed it up a bit last night, but regardless they were good. The keyboardist was a bit spastic (rather like the guy in the presets), so i could see how they were together.
 
 anyway - if you can get to philly you owe it to yourself to see them. im kicking myself for not seeing them in brooklyn. i should have seen M83 earlier (ie at music hall) - then 2 nights of the presets. ah well. win some, lose some.
 
 either way - it was kinda like when i walked out of digitalism. digustingly sweaty and hotter than hell, but you couldnt wipe the smile off my face. i was going to hit the after party - but i was dead tired from being up way early for an interview (for a job i didnt even get  :(  )

The Wacos rocked the house last night, as they always do. A good career-retrospective setlist, plenty of political witticisms & hilarious commentary from Langford and some fine revved-up boozy covers for the encore. You shoulda gone.

I think they opened for Hot Chip at the club. They were bloody awful. From what I remember, it was a two piece "band" with most of the music prerecorded. It's terrible electronic music.

Alejandro will be bringing his own opening act, but we don't know who it is yet. I doubt it'll be the Wacos, but that would be a great combo!
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: snailhook on June 07, 2008, 06:10:00 am
the waco brothers were kicking it ten years ago, kicking it now, and will be kicking it in ten years. the presets will be remembered in two years only by those who scour budget used cd bins.

Julie Ocean were shafted by the soundman at Iota last night. Muddy sound, fuzzy vocals - just horrible
 
 Yell County (the headliner) were a pleasant surprise, balls to the wall rock and roll - echoes of Sabbath and  Wolfmother with a little Black Keys-ish blues thrown in and a light dusting of southern rock.....topped off with the most amazing and entertaining drummers I have seen in manys the year!

Jamie Lidell's show last night will be one of the best this year AND one of the best I've seen at the club. He was just sooooooooo amazing.
 
 Jennifer O'Connor opened. Great set as well. She's way underrated and underappreciated.

Yes. One of my favorite shows this year as well. Even better than the black cat show in '06. Right up there with Carla Bozulich but for different reasons, obviously. I thought Jennifer O'Connor was bland and slightly boring, though

Battles were alright. They kinda bored me, except for the song Atlas. It's good to know who I can skip at Lolla.
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: azaghal1981 on June 15, 2008, 11:40:00 am
Battles were exactly what I expected since they played the exact same set I saw at the Ottobar a little less than a year ago.
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: friarfunk on June 15, 2008, 01:25:00 pm
"All right" is a pretty spot-on assessment of Battles.  The interstitials as they transitioned between songs were pretty bland, though they killed a few of their heavier pieces.  Could have done a lot more with lighting; Boredoms and Animal Collective set pretty high standards for visuals + music at the club, and this was a disappointingly plain presentation.

Leave it to fratboys to combine crowd-surfing groping with extreme sports. Maybe the CCRG should hire that guy.

I was there as well, the new ruleset seemed to change the game quite a bit.  Would having a roller girl fall in your lap really bad all that bad though?? (the grabbing bit would be creepy, I agree)

uh, having 150 lbs of anything land on top of you at that speed will probably have you thinking about things other than groping... i could be wrong tho.

im a volunteer at summerstage. no lines for me. as of 1pm the line was already to 66th. a good chunk of the line never got into the show. once the rain came and people started leaving - more people were allowed in for Vampire Weekend.
 
 and i also knew if i went to see them, to be in line way early. ive been to enough summerstage shows. 3:30... now thats a laugh.
 
 it was beyond wet there. lightning/thunder killed a chunk of the born ruffians set. i met the guy that heads up the central park conservancy (including summerstage) -- way cool. i was dry most the time as I worked the VIP area until i found some friends of mine and got soaked.
 
 it was just a mess and seeing people beyond soaking wet - while most of us were relatively dry was somewhat f-ed up. i guess thats what you get when you pay lots of money -- a place to stay dry  :)

i actually did announce it in the just announced thread a few months ago when it was, y'know, just announced. but it was probably quickly buried by something more important, like xneverwherex announcing a show by some band that nobody will care about in 3 weeks at some random venue in new york.

you, my friend, are a fucking genius. obviously - The Faint (which I posted about in May) which clearly had a DC date - and mention of Rob Dickinson (of the Catherine Wheel) specifically for bearman - is listing bands that are f'ing unknown.
 
 im sorry that the faint is some hugely popular band from nebraska that missed your radar. if you ever properly read the thread/posts - you would notice that our dear friend sweetcell posts a bunch of shows in nyc.
 
 on the otherhand, you are right. in threads titled 'this week rollcall' which you are posting in - but you probably didnt take the time to read it - i post what i am seeing. yes - i see a lot of british bands that prob will never make it in the states at some small clubs. and yes, i announce occasional shows that i think some people here might like so theyre aware of whats going on up here. (ive announced 2 shows on the just announced thread in over a month... so please get your facts straight - i HATE liars and more importantly assholes!)
 
 and in general - i DO NOT post shows that only play NYC. I see no point unless i know some folks here might be interested in it.
 
 sorry to take up precious space on a board by posting shows in the correct thread and contributing!
 
 and thanks julian for calling me a bitch!

Well, I thank you for bringing your concern to my attention. If there's anything we pride ourselves on here at Certified WEBLEBRITY, LLC, it's sensitivity to our constituents feelings. Allow me to assure you, our use of the colloquialism "bitch" was not intended as an insult to the women of this board, as xneverwherex is not a female to the best of my knowledge. Rather, we were using "bitch" in the way Tina Fey used it to designated a "smart, sassy woman who gets things done." And, again, while xneverwherex is not a female (to the best of my knowledge), their insipid posting of out-of-town shows virtually no one cares about encapsulates that zeitgeist of bitchy insouciance   that defines the modern "bitch."
 
 So again to clarify, and in summation, I am pro-women and anyone who wants to classify being likened to a woman as a negative comparison is the real sexist. And we have no place for such small-minded hate speech on this board.

and again - please point out ON THE CORRECT THREAD - about my insipid posting of out of town shows. as i said again - the correct thread. the thread we are in now is NOT the correct thread. this is called 'this week rollcall'. this is what I AM SEEING this week! what do you care about who/what i see. last i checked most people see bands in places other than DC.
 
 and please - do not point out things like the faint - this included DC dates. ill start you out 'rob dickinson of the catherine wheel' at mercury lounge. now you show me all the other ones, because honestly, id like to see them all. i dont have time for this - but apparently all of you have way too much time on your hands. or you do not know how to read and have not yet figured out this is not titled 'just announced'!  
 
 and for the record - I AM A FEMALE! and i take offense to being called a bitch.

Then for the record I apologize. I did not know you were a female, and I was not intending the word to be used as a slur for women, but rather the more generalized watered-down insult most people use the word as at current. (Similarly, if someone calls another person a "bastard," 99% of the time, they are not making implications about the person's parent's marital status at the time of conception.) Had I known you were female, I would not have used it.
 
 Also, further for the record, I have been completely taking the piss in this thread today, and nothing I've said -- with the exception of this post, and the second half of my last post -- was at all intended to be taken as anything more then internet jocularity.

i'm not typically called a 'pink taco' on the board except by like one person and its a joke that stemmed from a username I MADE FOR MYSELF.
 
 well jaron, it is different because YOU CALLED A WOMAN A BITCH IN  DEROGATORY MANNER. and someone who is very obviously a woman on this board. how you can say you didn't know is unknown to me. you weren't saying someone was being 'bitchy'... you actually called a woman a bitch. which is wherein i find the problem.
 
 but if you stand by the fact that you did not know she was a woman, whatever.

How am I supposed to know who are male and female on a messageboard? Unless someone has "Miss" in their username, or I know them personally, or their username has their actual name in it, I have no clue what gender people are. I guess I missed the day we all posted headshots on here. Of the regulars, I can only think of yourself, Bags, Celeste, and Jaguar who I know are female off the top of my head. I honestly always thought xneverwherex was a guy. I have no real reason for believing that, except I guess I assume most people on internet messageboards are male, right or wrong.
 
 Additionally, I have no problem with their posting NYC shows. I can't say I ever noticed. I just thought it was hilarious someone went out of their way to call someone else out on it, when it was clearly going to start drama. Additionally additionally, my line was stolen from Family Guy, and if I remember the episode correctly, the baby said it to the dog, who was male.
 
 I was clearly joking to begin with, and I apologized when I found offense was taken because they are, in fact, female. What more do you want? I think you've been around long enough to know if I actually had a problem with xneverwherex and meant it to be offensive that I'm not the type of person to do an about face because it ruffled 2-3 people's feathers.

Yes, as I said, anyone with their name as their username is obvious. Sorry I do not have a photographic memory of every regular poster on here so I can recap who I think is male and who I think is female.
 
 My point remains: it's an internet messageboard. Some people have ambiguous names. There is nothing about the moniker xneverwherex that lets me know male or female. I don't see why it's so hard to believe that I could be mistaken on someone's gender who I've never talked to personally, met, nor seen a picture of.

I just don't understand this sudden, raging hostility towards me over an innocent mistake. It's like someone asked if you all "wanted a pound of flesh with that shake" and you all said yes.    :(
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: vansmack on June 17, 2008, 01:35:00 pm
Let's see.
 
 First you were rude to a female member of our board.  We defend the ladies here.  Sure, you made an innocent mistake (how you made this, I'm still not sure), but even then, your first attempt at an apology was weak at best.
 
 Then you used someone's real name.  MAJOR faux paux.
 
 Then, you insulted one of my cherished nicknames for a member of this board.  A nickname that I only use in the most endearing moments.
 
 I think people are done being upset with you (well, maybe everybody but xneverwherex), but if you think we're just going to forget about this, well, that's not really what this board is all about.  
 
 So take your poison for a few more hours and suck it up.  Plus, and I'm not speaking for everyone else, but I am really bored today and find this quite entertaining.

So you're saying I should ban MissP and xneverwherex for being insolent and hack both of their email accounts? I don't really have the authority to do that on here and I think it would only exacerbate the situation, but you're digging deep in the Julian playbook and I like that, and always appreciate any suggestions.

I'm a little late to the party, but here's my three cents.
 
 It aint derogatory if it can be proven to be true.
 
 Can we prove or disprove the assertion?

But "bitch", which is so watered down in this day and age, and rarely, if ever, used for the objectification of your gender at this point, is offensive to you. How do you rectify those two positions? [/b]
i'm not typically called a 'pink taco' on the board except by like one person and its a joke that stemmed from a username I MADE FOR MYSELF.
 
 well jaron, it is different because YOU CALLED A WOMAN A BITCH IN  DEROGATORY MANNER. and someone who is very obviously a woman on this board. how you can say you didn't know is unknown to me. you weren't saying someone was being 'bitchy'... you actually called a woman a bitch. which is wherein i find the problem.
 
 but if you stand by the fact that you did not know she was a woman, whatever. [/b]

I'm going to go with the fact that it was written with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not seeing as how Julian didn't even know what gender xneverwherex was.
 
 However, having met xneverwherex on more than one occassion, it is false.

there is also Greer Zeller, or whatever weird nick El Tee is using these days (where is that girl?).  occasional poster "sister" is female too... although all this outing of females is a bad idea, it can only limit future blow-ups associated with the inadvertent use of the term "bitch"   :D
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: Julian, Alleged Computer F**kface on June 17, 2008, 04:47:00 pm
I was also unaware Kurosawa or Greer Zeller were female either. Perhaps, in retrospect, my true downfall is in being so non-sexist -- so gender-blind, if you will -- that I am unable to determine the gender of people I am talking to. And that is one shortcoming I will make no apologies for.

damn i should have showed up there to see if there were extra tix. tried to get tix to see them tonight at the MOMA but that didnt pan out either. but since my order went through (but then somehow was denied getting tix) i did end up with free passes to the moma.

fyi, there weren't any.  there were, however, several dozen people standing outside the venue asking for tickets - on top of the scalpers asking for extras.  chances of getting an extra at cost were very very low.

Gender blind you're calling it now?
 
 Even though your first defense for calling her a bitch was "what's the big deal, xneverwherex is not a female"?
 
 That's not gender blind.  You assumed they were all male, not asexual.  That's pretty sexist if you ask me.  Why didn't you assume they were all female?

I think most people would agree that on the average internet messageboard, there are more males then females, particularly among those who would qualify as "regular" posters of a messageboard. That being the case, if one assumes every unknown user is a male, they mathematically would be more accurate then taking the opposite approach. It's statistical.

It's a very nice venue, although I warn you, the sound is MUCH better in the balcony or mezzanine then the orchestra pit, particularly the vocals.

I assume every new poster is a female that wants to sleep with me until I hear/read differently.

You know this isn't a viable argument. For every S&TC or feminist messageboard there are 800 Battlestar Nerdtacula messageboards.
 
 And I have every season of S&TC on DVD.

I don't know.  When I was walking out of Indiana Jones on the opening weekend of Sex and the City, I was thinking to myself, maybe I missed the boat on not pretending I was interested in Sex and the City.  There were quite a few attractive and desperate groups  of females there that might have found my act of pretending to be interested in what's bothering them rather charming.  I'm sure someone else has been capitalizing on this for some time now.

You see.  The same gross generalizations.  Where does it end with you?
 
 There are hundreds of thousands of unique ladies on those S&TC message boards.
 
 But there's 100 Battlestar Nerdtacula's users on 800 different message boards with 14 different user names each so the conversation never ends...

Yes, I am female (go figure!), and I find nothing insulting about the word "bitch."  It's...a word.  And it was used as a joke.  Yeah...failing to see how that upset people.
 
 I am, however, offended by the term "Battlestar Nerdtacula."

I AM turning into a huge baby.  I have no problem going to the BC or 9:30 alone, but I've been to both places many times.  Going somewhere alone for the first time is a different story, let alone a place I've been warned about.  I've been to a lot of shady places by myself but I'm trying to be better with that, as I've had some bad experiences this year, soooo...I am turning into a bit of a tiny wussy girl.
 
 Plus deciding between which show I want to see.  The last time I saw the Warlocks, years and years ago, I walked out cause I thought they sucked.  However I saw Bella Morte recently and though I'm not crazy about the music, they RAWKED.

I was just thinking to myself at the Times New Viking show that there are plenty more white folks in that area now than when it first opened.  Plus, that article in last week's Post about how happening the area is will probably make it much safer.  
 
 Really, it's no better or worse than the 9:30's neighborhood, although there's more people on the street which I equate with "safer."

I saw the Brides at the Black Cat.  Great band and you're right, every time I've seen them, they've always put on a fantastic show.  New songs sound good too.

It's called Orb Fest and The Orb aren't playing? That's a little misleading.

Im now seeing this show on Saturday night and cant wait to see Mr Albarn again.
 
 Damon Albarn & The Honest Jons Revue at Avery Fisher Hall
 Featuring Tony Allen, Afel Bocoum, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Kokanko Sata, Candi Staton, Lobi Traore, Simone White, Victoria Williams and Damon Albarn.
 
 The hippest world-music label going. Entertainment Weekly on Honest Jons
 
 These wonderfully diverse artists have one thing in common: theyve all recorded for the independent London-based label Honest Jons. Damon Albarn, best known from his days as Blurs frontman and the wildly successful virtual band Gorillaz, co-founded the Honest Jons label with the landmark record shop. Since its first release, Mali Music, featuring Albarn and Ali Farka Toure sideman Afel Bocoum, Honest Jons has specialized in music that breathes a similar attitude no matter how disparate it may seem from the magical Malian blues of Lobi Traore to the blazing brass of the Hypnotics.
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: azaghal1981 on July 13, 2008, 02:34:00 pm
How was the Albarn thing?
 
 
 This week:
 
 
 Maybe Kohoutek tuesday
 Whartscape thursday
 611 farewell (?) show friday
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: xneverwherex on July 13, 2008, 04:56:00 pm
Damon Albarn and The Honest Jon's Revue was absolutely incredible. The sound at Avery Fisher Hall is one more places need to emulate (granted this is Lincoln Center and the Philharmonic does play here). Damon was more in the background for most of the songs - sometimes adding on keys, singing in the background, dancing, jumping around and all around supporting the artists (which is now clear its like one huge family). Simon Tong was playing as well along with Tony Allen. Tony was amazing (I never saw TGTBTQ play) and really skilled (understatement of the year).
 
 Damon sang on the final song and his voice has held up, sounding more beautiful than ever before (I believe a song from Mali Music was played). All I can say is - Oxfam might have been the best thing he ever decided to do by having them get him down to Mali). The Honest Jon label has such a diverse talent. The real stand out was The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Family members were sitting behind me - so our area was incredibly loud and people were really into - but my god these guys are talented. Candi Staton had an amazing voice and she got the crowd clapping and singing along with her.
 
 But most importantly, the artists from Mali and the African artists really made this show what it was. Im just glad I had a chance to see it. As someone noted, hes becoming London's answer to David Byrne.  
 
 And I dont know if its just me and people Im meeting lately, but it seems Afrobeat is so popular these days. Summerstage had a day full of Afrobeat artists, now this and countless other things. Perhaps its really my awareness of it all that has changed (and i guarantee its for the better). theres only so many indie/hipster bands one can take  ;)

If I have wireless reception, I can work. Therefore, I can travel and see all the fucking shows I want.
 
 Anyway, wow, there were definitely some changes I made to what I posted a week ago. I missed St. Vincent and the Brazilian Girls, went to Beth Orton instead of Bon Jovi, and apparently I made the right decision, cause Bon Jovi suuuuuuucked. Also, the Breeders/Whip/Matt and Kim show today at McCarren Pool was one of my favorite shows of the year. Top ten, definitely.

you should have gone to bowery to catch back door slam. was one of the best shows ive seen in a long time. leaving the club i overhead some older men talking (crowd was relatively older) saying something like 'i love blues music, and i swear that this kid is the best thing ive ever seen in my entire life' - in reference to davy's vocals and guitars. played covers from CSNY, Robert Cray and the list goes on.
 
 cant make the boris yeltsins tonight. its ok as i caught them a month or so ago at mercury.
 
 a hawk and a hacksaw were good. le poisson rouge is quite the nice, new club. lots of dancing going on as they played and i felt like i was in some eastern european country. lots of dialogue about new mexico. after about 45 minutes tho the music blended together and I found myself a bit bored. It seems on their myspace page they had a bit more vocals in their music (i could be wrong, just what i thought i remembered), which didnt happen live. Regardless, thanks to wordless music series i got into the show for free.
 
 it was fun and entertaining tho. id highly recommend going to le poisson rouge for shows. the sound is great! besides the heart of the village is never a bad place to be.

betty - did you make the show? it was pretty good albeit the boris yeltsins set seemed very short at 40 mins. Really liked Ha Ha Tonka. The first band - well hopefully I wont be seeing them anytime soon. I was close to falling asleep.
 
 And best yet, drink specials till 9pm will def be getting there early. $3 for my drinks was a sweet deal!

yeah, i did!  but i was up front shooting.  i was going to go look for you but i didn't end up getting to the club till like 9:40 ish...Ha Ha Tonka were really fun, and SSLYBY were great but their set was way too short.  everyone was dancing up a storm so it was super fun.  
 check out photos + interview on brightest young things some time tomorrow...
 
 also went to ted leo tonight, which kicked ass.

i had a feeling it might be you, but i wasnt sure and as i had said - someone tried to take your spot and then i couldnt remember whose spot i was watching. the whole thing was weird and i must have seemed pretty ditzy. anyway - was cool meeting you if even for a second and not really knowing who the other was.
 
 im usually near the front (if not very front) so if youre ever alone and see me up there and need someone to watch your space - just ask  :)

black crowes at wolfie on sunday.  my last show for a long time.  might even just skip it, give my fifth row seat to a luck of the draw parking lot scowler and go eat at amphora in vienna.  god i love that restaurant, and i've seen the crowes so many times, they might be all boring now.  especially since i gave my drugged filled soul back to the devil.

 Wednesday:
 Either Vivian Girls or The Ex (with that pretty sick horns section).

 Considering a weekend in NYC centered around either Tony Conrad/Metro Area/Kelley Polar or Battles/Black Dice/Gang Gang Dance (most likely the latter since Tony Conrad is playing in Baltimore soon).

Hold Steady were great....much better than last time at the club

I caught the last 5 songs of Thao (25 minutes). LOVED the longer version of "Fear and Convenience" as well as "Feet Asleep".
 
 Agreed about Hold Steady. "Slapped Actress" was my fave tonite.

Post by: azaghal1981 on August 24, 2008, 11:10:00 am
From the way they were playing and interacting with each other between songs, it felt like they were trying to dick around with/frustrate the crowd for the entirety of their set. Last I checked, yes they do a lot of improvisational stuff but they never came off to me as a jamband. There's a fine line between the two. This shit they played last night sounded like something you'd hear at the state theatre. There was even one moment between songs where one of them said "I was trying to explain what we sounded like to this guy earlier tonight. I made a big mistake by not telling him that we sound like a jamband...like Widespread Panic or something." It just felt like a running joke between the band the whole time they were up there. Yeah it was funny but at the same time, it was frustrating and confusing as hell. I thought maybe we'd hear a chunk of Preteen Weaponry (their new, mostly improvised but interesting album) and some older stuff but this was all unreleased material (none of it was anything I'd heard, anyway) that sounded like it was purposefully played badly.

Oof...I skipped last night because I sort of expected a full set of just Preteen Weaponry material.  Not that the new album is bad (because it's not)...I just couldn't imagine them playing any other material except maybe a short encore of older stuff.  Sounds to me like I made a wise decision.  At least the last Warehouse show (night of the ill-fated Sleater-Kinney show) killed it.  Oh well.

This shit they played last night sounded like something you'd hear at the state theatre. There was even one moment between songs where one of them said "I was trying to explain what we sounded like to this guy earlier tonight. I made a big mistake by not telling him that we sound like a jamband...like Widespread Panic or something." It just felt like a running joke between the band the whole time they were up there. Yeah it was funny but at the same time, it was frustrating and confusing as hell. I thought maybe we'd hear a chunk of Preteen Weaponry (their new, mostly improvised but interesting album) and some older stuff but this was all unreleased material (none of it was anything I'd heard, anyway) that sounded like it was purposefully played badly. It ended with this drums/keyboards duel that went absolutely nowhere for 15-20 minutes.

On second thought, it wasn't all unreleased material; I think there may have been stuff from Secret Wars and Happy New Year played but 90% of it was definitely stuff I've never heard which was steeped in jambandiness.
 
 
 I just read a review from a show that they played last week which featured Preteen Weaponry in its entirety.
 
 Now I'm even more bitter; that would've been awesome to have heard last night.

I shall be doing my best to see Rasputina tonight at the Ottobar, and then again tomorrow night at the Black Cat.  We'll see, as Tuesday is my VERY first day of college and tomorrow is my get-everything-done-before-first-day-of-school day (who's buying me a drink?).  God grant me energy, I seem so ill-fated when it comes to Rasputina.

 Saturday:
 Liam Finn/the Veils at RNR Hotel

I got robbed $14. The Veils were supposed to play for an hour, but played 30 minutes instead.
 
 Liam Finn definitely needs a full band. But ya know, some musicians want to show us that they can play more than one instrument. So here's Liam stretching his 3 minute song into 6 minutes by playing the guitar parts first, then the drum parts...it is so pretentious. I left after 4 songs. Oh, I couldn't stand the female singer either. She didn't really help...

You just saved me quite a bit of typing. Couldn't have said it better myself. My friends all agreed that the Veils blew Liam off the stage, and that the Veils should have played twice as long as they did. I left a few songs after you did.
 
 The Beatles Birthday song was especially cheesy.
 
 And I'm saying this as a big fan of Liam's cd.

My guess (hope?) is they'll do the EP plus a bunch of other stuff.  The last time they played, they did a pretty decent set.

jeez, some people are hard to please! While I went primarily for The Veils and thought they were amazing and was a little dissapointed they only played for 30 minutes I was pleasantly surprised by Liam Finn whose stuff I was not familiar with - the looping etc did not bother me, kind of struck me as Andrew Bird with attitude - for me it was great to see someone having so much fun up there and I thought his energy was infectious
 
 still think it was $14 well spent

Perhaps the fact that you were'nt familiar with Liam's material made you more open-minded to the performance you saw.
 
 For me, he took what is a very good pop album (most likely on my year end top 10 list), and turned them into a bunch of wanky guitar and drum solos. I can understand that some people appreciate the latter (I don't), but I went hoping for the former.

As my friend asked, "Would it kill him to have a band?" and "How does the drum know when to come in like that?"
 
 I'm fine with a band using little blips and bleeps from a laptop, but when the lead guitar part or the drums aren't being played by a human (and there's a second person on stage doing nothing but banging a cymbal and singing backing vocals, and two roadies sitting on the side of the stage doing nothing...can't they be in the band?), it's rather diconcerting to watch.
 
 But the Eddie Vedder crowd he won over seemed to eat it right up.

If he's more comfortable up there reproducing the music by himself and is able to do so with the help of technology, I don't see what the big deal is. He's just using the laptop/delay pedal/whatever he uses for the looping as another musical instrument. It's not like he's hitting "play" on a cd player or an Ipod and playing/singing along. If memory serves, you weren't all that crazy about Jens Lekman using a DJ to produce all the samples in his live show. I guess I can see why looping would bother you if that did.
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: Relaxer on September 08, 2008, 09:03:00 am
I gotta say that looping drives me nuts in 80% of shows where I see it. A live show should be about what the band can produce together on-stage in real-time. Having canned guitar parts is cheating -- if you need another guitar, get another guitarist. Or, figure out a way to play the song without the tapes. I remember a Stereophonics show a few years ago where almost all of the most interesting guitar parts, including some of the solos, were totally canned and the singer/guitarist was just playing strum rhythms. That's weak.

Sounds like The Veils had a really great show. I saw them last week (not sure if it was before/after that show - on thursday night) and Finn was having a really bad night.
 
 He kept saying how nervous he was that he couldnt even form sentences. He was having issues with the mic the whole night and his hands were terribly shaking. I kept wondering what the hell he took before the show.
 
 He sounded better than ever and I love how emotional he gets when he sings and plays. It just shows on his face. Regardless, Lavinia and their other songs sounded great. Im quite sure we got 45 mins (perhaps more) when he was here.
 
 Didnt stay for much of Liam Finn's set, but he sounded great. Not crazy about the woman he plays with. Alberta Cross playing acoustic made for a great opener.

Caught Dead Heart Bloom at Iota tonight (9/20). Their new stuff rocks harder, but then that's not saying much after Chelsea Diaries, I guess, but they definitely rocked. Played plenty of songs off their first album, including notably "New Messiah." Boris seemed livelier and appeared to be having fun. He's shaved off the Grizzly Adams/Unabomber beard he had the last time I saw them at Iota almost exactly a year ago.
 
   http://deadheartbloom.com/ (http://deadheartbloom.com/)
 
 Was anyone else there tonight? Just curious.

Wanted to go but the 4 hour roundtrip commute and other issues nixed that idea. Glad to hear the show was good though I wouldn't have expected any less. Boris is such a good all around musician. Really wished I could have gone.
 
 On a personal level, good to hear that beard is gone. Then again, I'm just not a big facial hair enthusiast.
 
 To the others: you can legally download all of their works for free on their website. (Buying them would sure help the band.)
 
 Lately, I've been on a big Phaser kick (again) and have uploaded a couple of their tracks to my station. I sure miss Phaser!

bands doing DJ sets can indeed be boring or horrible, but they can also be pretty cool.  i think it's interesting to hear what my favorite musicians think is good music.  sometimes they'll play remixes/alt versions/etc of their own stuff.
 
 and i believe that the "some sorta oasis party thing" would be a listening party for the new oasis album (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dig_Out_Your_Soul).

Sonick, if it's any solace, The Morning After Girls just moved to NYC. Well, most of them. They recently put out a notice that they were looking for additional members to fill the holes. So, once they get all those details into place, odds are, we will see a lot more of them around these parts. At least, I sure hope so!
 
 Xneverwherex, please let me know how Darker My Love and The Upsidedown were. It's really bugging me that I'm missing all 3 of these bands but life sucks like that sometimes. All a good match for each other too.

Hayden was excellent. Too bad very few people attended (maybe 35 people max).
 
 Built to Spill is tomorrow. Too bad it is the same night as the Points CD release at the Black Cat. Really digging their sound.
 
 How was the last Oxford Collapse show? anyone?

Me too! By the way, the opening band for Dead Heart Bloom was the Jackfields, whose lead singer is Mike Reina, also a member of Phaser, as I'm sure you know. Straight up rock/pop. I thought they were OK.

Jag - lets see. its now my 3rd time seeing Darker My Love. I so much wanted to like them (as I was seeing them 3x), but they just dont translate well live. Theyre a bit stiff and way boring. Its a chore just for the singer to announce their band name, but at least in DC he didnt chastise anyone (although no one asked). Their music is fine, and some songs are quite fun and catchy but overall, if I never saw them again Id be quite fine with that.
 
 As far as The Upsidedown - well theyre now on the dandy's label and theyve added more members (a few members from the outcrowd) to the band. Their dandy's like sound is still very present and it seems that most people who saw them enjoyed them. I think their new stuff sounds great live and Im a big fan of their first album. I really enjoyed seeing them again.
 
 But after seeing Courtney for the 3rd time on this tour, well the openers dont even compare. The Dandy Warhols are sounding better than ever. I think this might be one of the best times Ive ever seen them. 2 hour sets that comprise most of their albums (the 1st one is lacking - aside for the occasional "Lou Weed") but its great to hear a good chunk of 13 Tales (my fav album). They've tweaked most their songs a bit, so they all have a new feel to them. I love pete intl spaceport/boys better - the two are amazing together. Courtney also looks better than ever (at least a bit more healthy) and his vocals have never sounded this great.
 
 he was quite chatty last night which was pretty cool. pete always seems off in his own world and zia seems to be doing a lot more these days.
 
 All I can say is 3x is still not enough. I will add tho Darker My Love seemed really excited when they were in Philadelphia and sounded the best then.
 
 the set list has been nearly the same at all shows. Philly had the most songs and we got to hear Minnesoter, Solid, Country Leaver, Orange (which Courtney barely remembered) and some others that Im forgetting.
 
 The regular set list include the following:
 Set:
 Mohammed
 U2BF
 3rd World
 Holden Me Up
 I Love You
 Last High
 Money
 BOHO
 Get Off
 Love Song
 Good Morning
 New New
 Dreamt of Yes
 Burned
 Now You Love Me
 Junky
 Godless
 Wasp
 Trucker
 Pete / Boys
 Country Leaver

I didn't see them open for We Are Scientists, but I did see them open for Freightened Rabbit in the Backstage a couple months back.

Gave some of the Dead Science album a listen last night (or was it two nights ago?). Still on the fence.
 
 Oh wait...Dead Science is Friday isn't it?
 
 I'll be down there already for fleet Foxes so I might as well do both.

I know. I don't have a ticket for Fleet Foxes but not sure I wanted to go anyway after seeing them last time (once is enough with this band I think). I'll go to John Prine, but it's expensive...maybe Dead Science afterwards if I'm not too tired.

Don't pretend like you don't want to see Madge in Jersey! Don't put it all on the missus, there's some Sweetcell love for Madonna!!!

azaghal, why didn't you go to Juan Maclean? Aren't you a fan? It was a great show (they did a super extended version of Happy House, maybe 20 minutes of it). Nancy from LCDSS did vocals. It was quite empty though (maybe less than 30 people in the mainstage) and probably the only chance you'll ever see ixkpd do his diva dance moves out in the open.    :eek:

Of Montreal pissed me off last time with their sloppy playing/heavy reliance on pre-recorded samples as Kevin played dressup the last time I saw them. I'll stick to the studio work, thankyouverymuch.

Plug the DVD into your computer and you can download a bunch of songs from the disc.  Pretty good stuff.

i've seen them both and they are both good, but fucked up will surely be more memorable. also, vivian girls seem like one of those bands where the more i read about them (interviews and such) the less i like them. that pitchfork q&a was awful, man.

Ha...yeah, it was like reading  a teenager's blog.  But then again, they've got to be pretty young, no?  I'd be there if it wasn't my wife's 30th.  Somehow, I'm not sure she'd be into that show...

they're old enough to be covered in tattoos, i know that. seriously, i was not expecting this charming little indie-pop band to be so inked up. it will be interesting to see who has a bigger rack, the bassist from vivian girls of the singer of fucked up.

This completely exceeded my expectations! Janet played for about 2 1/2 hours, 40 songs in the setlist, almost ALL hits. Seriously, everyone in the crowd was going nuts for her, and she gave 110%. Her tickets were half of what Madonna's were, and she played twice as long and was (arguably) the better show.

 APTBS (and maybe Minus the Bear) wednesday
 Lewis Black at College Park thursday
 maybe APTBS in Philly friday

 Magnetic Fields/Shugo Tokumaru sunday
 
 
 Gonna skip both Lykke Li and Fucked Up today.

Lykke Li, Fucked Up
 The New Year/Uglysuit, DMBQ

 The Rosebuds (maybe)
 Magnetic Fields, then Soulwax at Transit (Philly)
 Magnetic Fields - Sunday

Really? I hated the DC show. Let me guess she picked you to go up onstage to get disciplined?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sq2w9I31zSI (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sq2w9I31zSI)
 
 This was her first show back and maybe she was still feeling under the weather. Her dancing was emotionless kind of like an aerobics routine. Her hair and costumes were whoreific.

Yes! Go see this show. Holy moses. They said they'd never played Virginia before so they were going to "make up for it" and they played between 2:45-3:00.
 
 (not in order)
 4 Brendan Canning Songs (including Hit The Wall)
 Farewll To The Pressure Kids
 Fucked Up Kid
 2 Songs From the Other Guy's solo work (including this saxophone/Jamaican woman thing)
 KC Accidental
 Stars And Sons (closer of encore)
 Almost Crimes
 Looks Just Like The Sun
 Pacific Theme
 Anthems
 Cause = Time
 Shampoo Suicide
 Our Faces Split The Coast In Half
 Ibi Dreams
 7/4 Shoreline
 Major Label Debut (main set closer)
 Superconnected
 Fire Eye'd Boy
 It's All Gonna Break
 
 This was the best BSS show I've seen of 3.
Title: Re: This week rollcall

Thanks. Hopefully they will top the Chicago Metro show from this past August. Who did the female vocals? The girl from Land of Talk? Are they selling tour posters?
 
 The last 9:30 club show was 2.5 hours long! (not the bss presents kevin drew, but the one prior with lisa lobsinger doing female vocals)    :D

yeah that bss show was crazy. they played forever but holy hell the concrete floor at toad's killed my legs. this show was much better than 'presents kevin drew' last year at 9:30.
 
 edit- yeah the land of talk girl did the female vocals. she was ok for a stand in...and land of talk was pretty good.

Yes, the girl from Land Of Talk did the female vocals. She was OK, but messed up Anthems. They had a general tour poster for the entire tour and a specific one for Richmond.

The Rosebuds were so much fun! This was the third time I've seen them, but the first time as a headliner and I couldn't imagine having more fun at a concert. It was such a hoot seeing Bearman up on stage and great hanging with Bags as always. I'm digging the new Rosebuds album.
 
 I really enjoyed The Oranges Band, too. I definitely would have bought one or more of their CDs, but I ran out of cash. Next time....

 i'm really psyched about seeing soulwax night versions/2manyDJs this weekend.  i was considering doing both NYC and philly, but looks like i'm going to have to skip tonight's NYC show.  TBD.  anyone else doing a roadtrip?  soulwax night versions was one of my top 3 acts from coachella'07.  amazing stuff, and SOOOOO much fun to dance to.
so where are those pix of bearman on stage?!?
 
 soulwax in philly was really good... and kinda weird.  they had the world series on the giant screen behind the stage, and originally the idea was to start the show at mindnight, after the game should have been over.  but with the 1.5 hour rain delay, teams where still deep in play by the time Late of the Pier took the stage - who insisted on keeping the game on behind them, much to the approval of the crowd.  good band, would definitely check them out again.  soulwax came on and also asked that the game be projected behind them, saying they'd provide the soundtrack.  soulwax cimented their spot in my opinion as the best live+electronic dance act.  not as mind-blowing as coachella but a ton of fun.  the place went ape-shit when the phillies won, predictably enough.  played for an hour, took a break, then came back for a 2manyDJs set (joe, i think you had left - silly boy).  the DJ set was only ok, although that MGMT remix of theirs really kicks on a big sound system.

 Great show.  He defenitely skewed his usual banter/music mix heavily to the music side.  Other than his paranoid delusions about how the CIA was attempting to instigate a terrorist attack before the election, he was surprisingly sedate in his rhetoric.

Caught the Hotel Cafe Tour at the 9:30 Club. I've never been to one of these shows before. I take it they've been doing this for a while, but this was the first year all the featured artists were women. It was like a mini Lilith Fair! All of the artists intermingled, playing a couple songs at a time initially, and then longer 3-4 song sets the second time on stage.
 
 Samantha Crain opened the show. She's the youngest and a little raw. I thought she really found her voice playing solo, and she impressed me with a jawdroppingly good cover of Radiohead's "Creep".
 
 I really adored Jenny Owen Youngs. I just loved her heartfelt songs, and she had the wittiest banter I've come across in quite some time. I ended up buying her CD after the show.
 
 Meiko was also very good. Strong, very personal songwriting.
 
 Most of the audience was there to see Rachael Yamagata. She blew the roof off the club with her first set, but she sadly kind of fell apart in the penultimate set when she tried to fulfill the many shouted requests by performing "Letter Read" clearly without much rehearsal.
 
 Thao Nguyen quite simply stole the show, giving one of the strongest performances of any artist I've seen so far this year. Her catchy, fast tempo, slightly off-kilter songs are a joy. I can't wait until she performs again in our area.

I got the philly ticket before dc was announced.
 
 
 I could've seen Jens in VA and Byrne in DC that weekend if I was a little more patient. Ahh well.
 
 I don't know if it'd be cheaper seeing as Warner tickets are slightly more expensive than tower ones. Transportation will probably cover that difference, though.
 
 
 Guess ixkpd-bk will introduce us at H&LA tonight.

saw the B-52's and H&LA last night in NYC - a great show.  i preferred H&LA's set at the 930 club, but not by much - still got a solid performance last night.  B-52's were pretty awesome.
 
 this week: would like to do deerhunter/TNV, pelican and/or mountain goats, but work has a 99% chance of making all of those shows impossible for me.  might try to catch gutter twins on friday.  saturday is definitely adam west @ DC9 - their last show ever, band is breaking up after this gig.  should be a hoot... and very loud.

Yes, that TMG show was excellent!
 
 
 Way more upbeat than the BC show for obvious reasons.
 
 
 Also really enjoyed Kaki King's acoustic stuff. Wish she played more of it.
 
 
 She got a surprisingly long set. Pretty sure it was as long as the Mountain Goats'.

David Byrne was a mixed bag. TH classics were played to perfection but I still can't get into the new album at all. Tower Theater sound was much boomier than I remember it being the last time I was there.
 
 
 This week:
 Diplo/No Age
 M83
 Brightblack Morning Light
 
 
 Got an M83 extra for anyone who wants one.
 (strongly advised that the Calexico snoozefest is skipped for them   ;)  )

I thought you said M83 > Homosexuals....
 LOL
 
 Yes, it's doable esp. after being unsatisfied with M83.

Is that the Palace Music/Brothers "New Partner"? I'd of died if I'd been there.

The Homosexuals' set was phenominal!
 
 M83 were very good, too. And they couldn't have timed the ending of their set more perfectly. Homosexuals were on five minutes after I got to the Velvet.
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: Vas Deferens on November 14, 2008, 11:27:00 am
Calexico last night = amazing! We got "Minas de Cobre" in the encore! Haven't heard that since 2001! New songs sound GREAT, esp. Inspiracion...
 
 Agreed about the Homosexuals set being phenomenal!!!  :p
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: azaghal1981 on November 15, 2008, 01:30:00 pm
Brightblack and Fursaxa were both really good but the Talking Head is an awful venue for both.

Yeah and that show left me slightly underwhelmed, too.
 
 
 They're always so good as an opener though!
 
 
 Maybe it's because they don't play as long and don't overstay their welcome. I dunno.
 
 Wish I could make that Grails show; the recording I have of their Terrastock set is amazing and their new album is one of my favs this year.

didnt make ambulance on friday night.
 
 sondre was really good. he was playing a bunch of new stuff that will be out on his new album. his new ep - pumpkin polaroid party - has some gems (just like lazenby) on it including a random polaroid photo of him and/or his friends that come with each EP. he played a few songs with sylvie lewis (the opener) and she had an amazing voice. so it was a good combo. sondre was quite chatty and since Brooklyn is his new home, he was beyond happy to be playing in new york again.
 
 i had just seen him a few months before in a real small place so i definitely missed the intimacy of it all, but this set was still as great. id love to see him with the faces down one of these days.

At least 3/4 in LA, but the numbers in DC would be lower.

I'll go with just less than 50%.

Do we still run roll call threads?...I'm too shy to start one assuming this thread is sufficient.
Anyhow, any forumites going to Nada Surf? Raise your hand & if you want to meet up post here or in a roll call.
Rhett - if no responses, we can organize offline...wear your forumite pin for recognition. I'll bring samplers and stickers you don't want. ;)

Yeasayer killed it at Sixth and I - one of the best this year for sure. Did anyone else go?

Next week is Jukebox the Ghost (Friday). Maybe the Points on Wednesday at the Velvet.

Saw Mercury Rev/Dean & Britta last night - Dean & Britta started out on a great note until the speakers blew out. it went down hill from then on out.

mercury rev blew my mind away. damn that was incredible.

tues - quite possibly friendly fires
wed - stella (the comedy troupe)
thurs - the morning after girls

and sun - possibly matt & kim if my friend gets me on the guest list

Oh dude!



There's also this at the Lighthouse which I'll be all over:

Thursday December 18
-sun circle (dronedronedrone from greg davis and zach wallace of vermont and montana, "it's quite nice. Really some delirium-inducing stuff." -adam richards, foxy digitalis)
--bird show (kranky records, "...a primal drone that unites Vida?s obsessions - electronic hum, acoustic ambience and woodsy buzz - into one massive sound." - Marc Masters, The Wire)
---kokomo ("guitar + computer controlled harp. A little bit of gravity melting in your hand.")
----echolalia (dc theremin magick)




Can't speak for the others but the Bird Show album that came out on Kranky this year is really really good.

Is he the one who does all the talking, even though he's not the lead singer?

It was especially humbling to hear Will Butler constantly thank us for all the hard work we put into the campaign, telling us they were especially honored to have been asked to play this event. I will not bore you with the details of my life on the campaign, but suffice to say it has been the most memorable experience of my life. It's an experience that cannot be matched and we are reminded that we are in a sort of limbo everyday now that it's all over. As Will humorously remarked in the middle of the concert, "This is the funniest party I've been to for people who have all just lost their jobs".

May I suggest you consult my list of downtempo/house-oriented DJ events (from the Distict Soul forum):

;)

http://www.districtsoul.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=16561

Offhand, I believe that the Fatback DJs @ Saint-Ex (Fri. 1/30) and the event at Gua-Rapo (Sat. 1/31) are free.

As for a place that lets you in for free AND gives you a free drink... I think you might be out of luck there.

Yeah, I rested up this weekend b/c the next two weeks are a bit much. I had the holiday yesterday, so my mind is already on shows into next week.

Perhaps Von Bondies tomorrow, but you all said they are shite live.
A friend's show maybe Friday. Dang, I completely forgot about DBT (sorry Hoya...I probably didn't have money so I forgot).

M. Ward Sat.
Thinking about Kathleen Edwards Sunday, but again, money and work conflict..
Toad Tuesday b/c I couldn't get into JEW.
Griffin House Thursday.
Thinking about Tapes 'n' Tapes Fri and And You Will Know Us next Sat...but I haven't ventured to RnR yet, or solo.

Can't speak for their later shows but when I saw them play the Backstage a few years ago, they were pretty good. This was back when they use to have the other girl guitar player and before they got a little more 'famous'. For whatever that's worth. It might not be the show of the season but I can't imagine it being all that bad either.

Saw Antony and the Johnsons again at both NY shows, and wow...it was just fucking gorgeous. I can't believe how god damn beautiful those songs are...and the arrangements! So perfect, so compelling, and there was such a hushed reverence in the venue during the songs. Fucking owned it.

There were also a shit ton of random celebrities there.

Night 1 we saw Alison Janney, Kim Cattrall, Thora Birch, and other people I can't remember.

Night 2 we saw Bjork, Isabella Rosselini, St. Vincent, Willem Dafoe, Joan Wasser, and one of those great fashion designer guys that I don't know the name of. Maybe Marc Jacobs or something, but he looked like shit. Oh, and Ilan from Top Chef was there.

azag: if it's any consolation, ixkpd-bk had to hang with me before and after the show.  almost as bad as a DBT train wreck :)

As amazing as just about everyone who saw the DC show said it was. Beautiful, powerful performance. Sound was perfect. String arrangements were excellent. An all around awesome and fantastic performance.

what azaghal (and ixkpd-bk, and many others) said.  wow.


I agree, that was tremendous. Perfect sound quality, great venue, the band sounded unbelievable. REALLY impressed with how they arranged the violins, cellos and various other instruments. And that voice! It's even more amazing live than it is on record. From a purely musical perspective, it was one of the best shows I've seen in years. Every song was epic, he really is a musical giant, and it was close to perfect.

The only negative, and god hell what a negative, was that stage banter. Holy shit Antony, you're going to seriously cripple this magical musical vibe you got going with that 6th-grade-schoolgirl schtick of "I just... umm..... well, y'know.... why don't we just be women.... and like... y'know... I'm sorry" It was so painful, and when he kept interupting the song to further blather on incoherently, I was dying.

what relaxer said, including about the awkward banter.  he pulled out an old t-shirt and a painted tile from a purple purse (!) and said that he was going to give them away, sorta like door prizes.  first there was an awkward moment as he figured out how to award the prizes, then he started disparaging the two prizes and said that no one really wants them, that they were trash, even though lamers in the crowd obviously wanted them.  if they are trash, why did you bring it up?  so embarrassing. 

although he did tell the funniest joke i've heard all week: "so they polled all 50 states to see which on they wanted to fall in to the ocean.  49 states voted for new york, and one voted for new jersey" :D :D :D

Night 2 we saw Bjork, Isabella Rosselini, St. Vincent, Willem Dafoe, Joan Wasser, and one of those great fashion designer guys that I don't know the name of. Maybe Marc Jacobs or something, but he looked like shit. Oh, and Ilan from Top Chef was there.

now you're making shit up.  bjork was NOT there, you would have told me!

Blister - Jimmy Eat World

Take advantage of these times, you said.
You let me down.
It hasn't been the first time.
As I'm falling in the pit of fire my mind's made up.
I'm never coming back here.

How long would it take me to walk across the United States all alone.
The West coast has been traumatized.
I think I'm the only one still alive.

Is it just a coincidence to see you by yourself with no direction.
Now it's time to move on.
Don't you know that things aren't getting better.

how was the Earthless/Witch show?
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: Relaxer on February 27, 2009, 03:43:27 pm
I thought Earthless was great. Was happy when they finally wrapped up, as I can only take that kind of higher-Higher-HIGHER solo jamming for so long before burning out on it. The first band was pretty damn good too, especially the bass player. The guitar player was playing very simple runs but it worked. Only stayed for about five or six numbers of Witch because I was spent at that point and they weren't doing much for me. Man, I understand that he's an old man now, but J was looking awfully puffy. Also, there's something bittersweet about seeing one of the greatest guitar players of our generation playing drums.

Also, did anyone see that big tall guy that passed out in the middle of the floor at the end of the first band's set? Yeah, he was with me. It was funny because he was a friend of a friend who I met for the first time a week ago. And then there he was, sprawled out on the floor and I'm thinking, holy shit, I don't even know this guy.

Not a problem at all. I have a place in both DC and NYC, but as of late, I've been leaning more towards being more in Brooklyn. I work, albeit freelance, I do work. In terms of how I get to and from DC, I generally use Megabus, Boltbus, or the dreaded chinatown bus (it's super frequent!). I know people who also go to mid-week shows in other cities and STILL go to work the next day, it's not as uncommon as you might think.

Those three are in dire need of a late night bus back to DC. I'm at my wit's end with Greyhound yet they're the only option for this. :(
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: Firebutt McGee on March 02, 2009, 12:08:31 pm
Chinatown bus has a 1:30am or a 3:00am bus from 88 Broadway.

Megabus sometimes has an 11:59pm bus from Penn Station, which I guess is good if you're going to a show at Nokia Theater, Roseland, Beacon Theater, Town Hall, or any of those midtown venues with a 7pm doors and a 8pm start time.

Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: Firebutt McGee on March 02, 2009, 12:31:49 pm
Yeah they do! Always!

Chinatown buses stop at the taxi stand/parking lot outside of Baltimore Travel Plaza going into and out of DC.

Megabus stops at White Marsh Mall, and Boltbus doesn't stop at all, I don't think.

There's another option called MVP Bus that actually stops in downtown Baltimore that has wifi and tables, near North/Charles St., which goes directly to NY for $18, I think. It might be $20 now. Still a hell of a lot cheaper than Amtrak, and way more accommodating than Greyhound.

Yes I made it! It was amazinggggggg! They played for 1 hour 10 minutes with all the highlights from Parc Avenue album...and a couple of new tunes. Very lucky to hear a full set as they opened for Blitzen Trapper in NYC and Brooklyn and they probably played for 30 minutes. Been in love with them since they opened for Wolf Parade in 2007. Good sized crowd...then on the way home it started to snow...but still made it home.

Here is the Megabus (http://www.megabus.com/us/schedules/baltimore_newyork.php) option site which would probably be my best option out of White Marsh. The other two only list a stop on Charles St. in downtown Baltimore. Though not really all that far for me (about the same as White Marsh), there would then still be the problem of finding a convenient and affordable place to park my car. Only problem with Megabus is that the last bus out of NYC is at 11:59PM which means that it would be best for me to make a whole night of it and then plan to catch the 6:45AM bus out first thing in the morning.

Downtown wouldn't be so bad if Baltimore's public transportation system didn't suck so much which is why I need a spot I can drive to.

   firstly, let me tell you that despite thinking the crowd would all have cool masks on and fake blood all over them, I was disappointed.  This is not some Insane Clown Posse movement (yet).  This was a very mishmoshed crowd ranging from scared looking 15 year old girls all the way up to 22-24 year old drunk scumbags who obviously havent matured much since they were in high school.  Also, they were ugly. I mean, i dont know too many guys who would utterly hate having to spend the evening with a bunch of good looking high school / early college girls.  Not in a perverted sort of way......well, you know, theres worse things to look at i suppose.  but this was NOT the best looking bunch of kids i've seen! 

   Anyway, the first band....Brokencyde, is worth noting. and worth checking out.  I will just link one song cause you wont be ABLE to listen to 2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TH5ibABP4U (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TH5ibABP4U) Were these guys not loved enough when they were young? I have nothing more to say about this band ......  ever. 

    The next two bands, Haste the Day and Senses fail were emo junk....skip.  Other than that about 1/4 of the people left after Senses Fail, i guess not everyone was undead.

    So these clowns come on and play that "Undead" song which sounds a bit like Eminem or Linkin Park, its ok really, more funny than anything else, but its a real song anyway.  And that was the last real song they played.

    For some reason i thought they were going to be some crazy weird evil like band with those masks or costumes or whatever, but no.  They all took their masks off after the first song and they were just dudes up there acting lke douches cursing and shouting vulgarities to mostly kids not old enough to drive.

     They didnt do anything cool, nothing special and nothing interesting. Usually a band that lacks so much talent, makes up for it in stage effects, costumes, antics or something.  This was just some dudes saying some raunchy shit without rehearsing and they went from perhaps Eminem/Linkin Park territory straight to just being a Kottonmouth Kings ripoff.   and thats bad.   

     The kids liked em though, but sometimes i think kids that age like anything. 

i dont have a setlist, sorry ;)

I dont know about Trance Arc, but Dead Confederate are nice.  Their debut cd is good old fashioned rock and roll, much in the same vein as the Whigs.  Ive heard a couple of semi accurate descriptions of them, like they are Bleach era Nirvana playing My Morning Jacket songs, or they are southern redneck shoegaze.  Whatever the case, expect lots of distortion and tortured howling.

I didn't really find the Black Lips "boring."  They were energetic and so was the crowd.  It just wasn't quite my thing...I felt really old.  Crowd surfers make me so grumpy.  But I got my fill of excitement when I returned to my car to find it had been broken into.  Everything rifled through, nothing taken...ha!

ixkpd-bk enjoy that Rem tribute! I would like to know what the feelies do, in hopes of having them repeat the songs on Saturday

Here was the setlist for the tribute:

The dB?s ? "Fall On Me"
Fink ? "The Apologist"
Keren Ann ? "Man On The Moon"
Calexico ? "Wendell Gee"
Rachael Yamagata ? "The Great Beyond"
Bob Mould ? "Sitting Still"
The Feelies ? "Carnival Of Sorts (Boxcars)"
Ingrid Michaelson ? "Nightswimming"
Glen Hansard ? "Hairshirt"
The Apples In Stereo ? "So. Central Rain"
Guster ? "Shaking Through?
Marshall Crenshaw ? "Supernatural Superserious"
Rhett Miller ? "Driver 8"
Kimya Dawson ? "World Leader Pretend"
Vic Chesnutt And Elf Power ? "Everybody Hurts"
Kristin Hersh And Throwing Muses ? "Perfect Circle"
Dar Williams ? "At My Most Beautiful"
Jolie Holland ? "(Don?t Go Back To) Rockville" (featuring Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio)
Darius Rucker (from Hootie and the Blowfish) ? "I Believe"
Patti Smith ? "New Test Leper"
R.E.M. ? "E-Bow The Letter" (featuring Patti Smith)

They did E-Bow, my favorite REM song, and owned it.

Highlights:

-Patti Smith doing "New Test Leper".
-Ingrid Michaelson doing "Nightswimming" (SUCH a surprise, she blew just about everyone away)
-Vic Chesnutt and Elf Power doing "Everybody Hurts"
-Apples in Stereo doing "So. Central Rain"
-Glen Hansard doing "Hairshirt" (TOTALLY random.)

Disappointments:

-Kimya. Fucking. Dawson. (Way to ruin one of my favs, bitch. NO one needed floor xylophonists or circus dancers or your gold diaper/globe dress.)
-Jolie Holland
-Marshall Crenshaw
-Keren Ann

Overall, the song choices were super random. A lot of fan favorites and album tracks were chosen over obvious singles, and I appreciated that. Some reinterpretations worked ("Nightswimming", "At My Most Beautiful", "Everybody Hurts"), and some just didn't ("Supernatural Superserious", "Man on the Moon"). Nobody should fuck with Man on the Moon, imho. But whatever.

The Palace at 4am
All of My Days and All of My Days Off
Cloud Prayer
Young Atlantis
Drink to Me, Babe, Then
The Collected Works
Changeling (Get Guilty)
Submarines of Stockholm
On the Table
---
There Is a War (Leonard Cohen cover)
Town Halo

I wish he did "Thunderbolts", especially since he had Nicole Atkins there (!!!), but it was still a pretty damn great show. I'm not a fan of Dent May and his Magnificent Ukelele though. Too much for me. There was no New Pornos stuff, and it was good that way. I'd definitely do more of his shows if the timing was better. He soundchecked "Most of Us Prizefighters" and a cover of "Love Goes On", but didn't perform those two last night.

Have to disagree with Julian. Always thought their music was okay. Not great but not bad. Then I saw them do a couple songs last summer when they opened for Swervedriver at the 9:30 Club and was pleasantly surprised. Much better live than I had expected. Not blown away but very much enjoyed them and wouldn't mind seeing them live again. Maybe he's right about them getting better.

Longwave were way better last night than when they opened for Swervedriver...weren't they at a major label at some point? I recognized some songs from 2003 or 2004.

Have to disagree with Julian. Always thought their music was okay. Not great but not bad. Then I saw them do a couple songs last summer when they opened for Swervedriver at the 9:30 Club and was pleasantly surprised. Much better live than I had expected. Not blown away but very much enjoyed them and wouldn't mind seeing them live again. Maybe he's right about them getting better. Due to attending a party beforehand, I missed their entire set and was very sorry to have missed the early part because I really enjoyed what I did catch.

Longwave was, and they sort of refer to that album as the one they would like to forget. I think their new material, which they played heavily last night, is some of their best. I'm biased, always liked them, but even seeing them on back to back nights they still sounded pretty fresh. Having booked them before, i can tell you they are a nice group of guys too. Shame they don't get as much press as they should...

Most likely, both will be doable.

Unless they switch the band order on you like they did with the Pink Reason show on monday with no notice.

It's also a money issue too, I guess.  And I'm wondering if tiny Velvet Lounge will sell out by the time I get there, having 4(?) openers?

Argh, I only slightly want to see Glasvegas, and am slightly more curious to see Spindrift.

You may be right which surprises me. There was a time when the BJM maddness prevailed around here but I think Anton's couple of drunken extravaganzas through town are catching up with him. I missed him when he played DC9 (I think it was). That show was good, wasn't it? Only saw them once and that was a number of years ago in Baltimore and that was a good show. Anton's spent a good amount of time in Iceland lately and I have a feeling it's chilled him down a bit. At least, I sure hope so. Looking forward to seeing the show.

However, I have to admit that the real push that is getting me down for the show is to see the opener, Flavor Crystals. Have no idea how their music will translate live but I flipping love this band, especially their first album called On Plastic. In fact, when I was doing my radio show, The Trans-Atlantic Underground on Kool Rock Radio, I selected On Plastic as the album of the year for 2005. I'm still playing them on Air Atlantic Underground Radio. The song Milky Way still sets me off...in a good way. Kind of like a mildly tempered Lupine Howl. With that said, their 2nd release is a whole lot more laid back and kind of misty sounding. For beginners, I would recommend On Plastic. Don't skip out on the band if you are coming to the show, especially if you like a bit of spacey Psychedelia in your music. Not way out there like Psychic Ills but more like a nice mild buzz.


Wish that I could make it out to see My Education (another Air Atlantic Underground Radio band) but due to too much suckage in my life, that's not happening.

I'd like to see Robyn H./Jennifer O., Neko, or Rocco, but money is tight.

Sat. night is a busy one. Who is doing what?
At this juncture, I plan on Beirut (not sure I'm interested in the opener, Sharon von Etten).
Then, thinking of Cloud Cult/Ice Palace/M&NSS's - will this sell out?

How was Monday Michiru -- I see you gave her an A-?

Did you see her complete set before heading over to the 9:30 for Sebastien Tellier?

I saw her at Bohemian Caverns last year and really enjoyed her show, but the cover -- already steep last year -- was even steeper this time around, so I decided to forgo it.

I completely loved it! I saw her early set (she had an 8pm and a 10:30pm) and it was great. She did acoustic versions of Basement Jaxx's "Always Be There" and "Tonight" (the latter was a request). She's apparently never done those live in DC before. Her voice is great, and her solo stuff is totally solid! I'm gonna get her new album soon, and I'll let you know how it is.

how was the cloud cult show?
Very good.  I didnt see any of the openers, but Cloud Cult were great as always.  They played a set featuring songs from across their back catalouge.  Only had one painter this time.  Sound was great, the best i have heard them sound,  though i have only seen them at their last Rock and Roll Hotel and Black Cat gigs before this one. 

Also, the place was packed at the end of Margots set (when i walked in).  I got towards the front to watch CC.  by the time i headed towards the back, at the end of the show, the place was half empty...

Guess people just wanted some so and so action.  Or they were filtering out throughout, i didnt pay attention.  If you want the set list, i can post it later, I wrote it up on my phone. 

Show score based on Cloud Cult alone = A+ Great Job!
Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: Vas Deferens on April 13, 2009, 04:30:17 pm
that's understandable since Margot > Cloud Cult. I would have gone but the Beirut show ended at 10:20 and Margot's set was at 10:30...

My math works out the exact opposite with Cloud Cult > Margot (in musical output and not based upon who is more popular).  But thats just my taste.  I will say i do kind of wish i would have came a little earlier.  Margots last two songs sounded really good and i wouldnt have minded seeing a little more.

Like physically painful.
Two songs in, I was whimpering like a wounded
 puppy and begging  ixkpd-bk to let me go back to the backbar but he held me against the rail and wouldn't budge.

She did climb over to the barricade and straddle my face during her "I kissed a girl" song though which helped the healing process somewhat. Still, I'll probably have flashbacks from that horrid music like Vietnam vets do from war for years to come.

Maybe Faint again at Sonar tomorrow.  What's their set time in Balto?  Anyone know off the top of their heads?

Thanks,

I liked Ladytron a lot more than The Faint. Hell, I even enjoyed Crocodiles a lot more than the Faint, too.

That Ladytron show tonight was a C, or a B- at best. Loved Crocodiles though.

The Faint was high energy and fun, but seriously every song sounded the same. I hate that.


Off to LA, today!

I thought the Faint were the best. Of course I know most of their stuff and I don't think they all sound the same. Loved the setlist (esp. Southern Belles, which I have not heard live before).

It would have been better if I wasn't familiar with Ladytron's new stuff...just doesn't translate well live (except I'm Not Scared). The ones that translated well live were from Witching Hour (Soft Power, High Rise).

That Ladytron show tonight was a C, or a B- at best. Loved Crocodiles though.

tuesday: dead weather at the bowery
wed: flight of the conchords @ radio city

the dead weather put on a solid blues-rock show.  jack's drumming was decent but nothing spectacular (then again the music didn't really lend itself to displays of virtuosity).  i've never seen the kills before but alison was a great front-woman.  definitely looking forward to seeing this band again.  BV's pix (http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2009/04/the_dead_weathe_2.html).  my pix (http://picasaweb.google.com/sweetcell/TheDeadWeatherBoweryBallroomApril09).

Dick Cheese was a riot. Played for over two hours and I would've went for another two.


Ratatat were awful. I left three songs in. Black Pus, while not being a very appropriate opener for this show was incredible. Left the poor unsuspecting teenagers next to me in the front row in excruciating pain.

Sat. nite: what to do?
DNA at VL
Sara W./Justin Jones early at club
Teddy Thompson at Iota (think he'll go on at 10?)
Avant Fairfax

Unfortunately, I'll probably need to skip Avant. I'd like to catch part of DNA, and Sara and maybe head to Iota? Just not sure of Sara W. set time.

I agree Iota is one of the worst for crowd chatter. One can hope it can be one of those Sat. nights that is dead b/c of "date night" or nice weather. (thx Charlie for the confirm and yeah, I thought start at 9 really means 9:30...)

I'm not surprised. Every time i see ixkpd-bk's schedule i am amazed by
A) his love for music
B) his endless bank account
C) his flexible work schedule
D) his energy
and E) his apparent lack of a life -- at least one that doesn't involve music

It's not like this epic week is really all that different from a normal one of seeing shows all week in DC, NYC and Philly. I know there is some sort of flexible job option, and two homes, and that apparent million dollars in the bank, but i have come to avoid this thread simply to not be shocked/made jealous/annoyed every week, in that order.

i already have my tix for the roots :)  Lady Sov is the early show, but the rumor is that she'll stick around and participate in the late-night Jam as well.  if someone is really really interested, they release a few tix on the night of each show so if you get there early and are willing to wait in line, you can get it.  emphasis on getting there early (like before ten) and the waiting.

i might be hitting this show up again in the coming weeks, it's a ton of fun and easily the best $10 of live music i've come across.

I surround myself with amazing people, I managed to get a degree at a decent school, and I'm making things work in my life where I can do something I love (that I choose not to disclose on a public forum) and be happy doing it. :)

Also: The reason this week is so epic for me is because I'm seeing a band that means a lot to me with people that mean a lot to me. Not to mention, Kelley Polar, a guy who's album was my favorite last year, who played all of ONCE in the US in 2008, is opening for their NYC show. Sounds like a winner!

This week is going to be epic for me.

Today - Dark Was the Night Concert @ Radio City Music Hall
Monday - The Kills @ Music Hall of W'Burg
Tuesday - Junior Boys / Max Tundra @ Black Cat
Wednesday - Junior Boys / Max Tundra @ First Unitarian Church
Thursday - Junior Boys / Max Tundra @ Webster Hall
Friday - Celebration / Psychic Ills @ Le Poisson Rouge
Saturday - Nine Inch Nails / Jane's Addiction @ Ford Amphitheater in Tampa, FL


good god!   that's awesome, when do you work?


I love how this question pops up every couple weeks or so.


I'm not surprised. Every time i see ixkpd-bk's schedule i am amazed by
A) his love for music
B) his endless bank account
C) his flexible work schedule
D) his energy
and E) his apparent lack of a life -- at least one that doesn't involve music

It's not like this epic week is really all that different from a normal one of seeing shows all week in DC, NYC and Philly. I know there is some sort of flexible job option, and two homes, and that apparent million dollars in the bank, but i have come to avoid this thread simply to not be shocked/made jealous/annoyed every week, in that order. Nothing personal meant by this ixpd-bk, it just, i dunno, bugs me for some reason. In the same way all those rich kids on Gossp Girl do...

It's cool! None taken, really.

A few years back I saw them perform as part of an art parade in the Village. The costumes were really out there and it was completely over-the-top, and they sounded amazing. If their concerts are anything like that, id not miss it. Ill know on Friday how it is, not sure when they play DC.

ps - Sweetcell - did you get your tix yet in the mail for the show? I think you ordered them pre-sale too. For some reason they are not mailing my tix and arent sure what is happening with pre-sale tix.

tuesday: the roots @ highline ballroom, NYC - unconfirmed special guest, among others: lady sovereign (the roots have a weekly residency at the highline ballroom called "the jam", where they are the house band and various artists join them on stage to, well, jam.  went 2 weeks ago a Booker T sat in on the first half of the show!  HIGHLY recommended if you're in NYC during the week.  tix only $10, but buy in advance - shows always sell out).

show was great once again.  no lady sov.  special guest tonight: street sweeper's first-ever east coast show!  the boots riley/tom morello fronted band is now going by "street sweeper social club".  they were really good, and tom dispelled any rumors that he's a bad guitar player.  between his solos during their set, and the freeform improv session he did with the roots and a saxophonist, easily proved that the boy can play.  looking forward to hearing them again in a month, when they open for NIN/JA.

The Junior Boys did their thing tonight at the Black Cat. Max Tundra was even more erratic and energetic than he was at SXSW, and I like the furry little guy!

Junior Boys setlist for all interested parties:

Hazel
The Equalizer
Double Shadow
Work
Parallel Lines
Bits and Pieces
Count Souveniers
The Animator

GREAT Damned show last night. Ian Mackaye and Brian Baker looked on as I kissed Captain Sensible's hand. He dedicated "Eloise" to me too. Sad thing is they said it'll probably be the last time they come to DC, which is a downer. The BellRays were phenomenal too. What a great night.

thermals were pretty good. 'cept i got stuck standing behind this super-tall dude. i always think the guitar could be louder when they play, but i guess that's their choice to keep it kinda low. the new songs are not quite as good as the old ones, but they still play plenty of old ones. good 1993 covers, too.

Tue May 19 - Tortured Soul, Highline Ballroom, NYC
W 20 May - St Vincent, Webster Hall, New York NY (maybe)
Thu 5/21 - WHITE RABBITS, Bowery Ballroom, NYC

on saturday night i had the extreme pleasure of hearing A Zero Complex, a band from philadelphia.  they were shockingly good - progressive power-pop?  dunno what label to attach to them, but they had nicely crafted songs that rocked.  i haven't been that impressed by an unknown band in a long long time.  do keep your eyes out for these guys, although i'm uncertain how far they travel.

(edit: there are some streaming songs on their website, http://www.azerocomplex.com/, which were recorded a year and a half ago... they don't do the band justice, they've obviously improved a lot since)

Thurs: White Rabbits @ bowery
fri: Holy Fuck/A Place to Bury Strangers/The Morning After Girls @ Music Hall of W'burg

cant wait for friday nights show since i just learned TMAG will be opening. Im hoping all the bands play together on "Lovely Allen". This is just too awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWUyjRVpLkM

The Radio Dept. were excellent on Saturday night. A shame the set was pretty short, but they sounded amazing. Eux Autres sounded better on album, but were fun nonetheless. And it seemed everyone loved A Secret History - they were good, but if I never heard their cover of "Reel Around the Fountain" again, Id be quite happy. Also one of the guys in the band seemed to think it was a comedy show and tried to tell a joke between every song, which got annoying super quickly esp because he was so _not_ funny. The first band, computer perfection, stood out the most for me. Fun, catchy, indie pop that had the very small crowd dancing.

And Suburban Kids playing with Pants Yell was pretty awesome. I loved the guys reading the lyrics off a piece of paper attempting to get through the songs.

Popfest was AWESOME. I loved the Radio Dept.'s set at Don Hill's. They played for about 45 minutes, and the guy next to me was taping it, so hopefully they'll have a bootleg. If I never heard the shitty Finnish band that came after them's cover of "I Don't Like Mondays", I'd be a-okay.

It was good, but I was really beat (hadn't had enough time to take a disco nap) and was so sleepy that I had to leave before the show was over.

I think the (singing) drummer should've performed on a riser -- he was at stage level and I don't think the people more than 15 feet back would've been able to see him.

Good show.  I hope for their next D.C. appearance they'll be at the 9:30 Club.  ;)

Anvil Hammers Away, Proving The Film Hit the Nail on the Head

By Dave McKenna
Special to the Washington Post
Friday, May 22, 2009



Heavy metal isn't for the sentimental. But it was impossible to watch Anvil's odd live show at the E Street Cinema on Wednesday without getting a little weepy about all the can-miss Canadian band has been through for rock-and-roll.

Singer Steve "Lips" Kudlow and drummer Robb "Robbo" Reiner took the stage after a screening of "Anvil: The Story of Anvil," a documentary about how their friendship and band have survived decades of professional failures. The gig was part of a moviehouse tour promoting both the band and the film. It's a brilliant marketing combo: Seeing the damaged duo -- joined by bassist Glenn Five -- perform live after the movie was like watching the Yankees play after a screening of "The Lou Gehrig Story." You have no choice but to root for 'em.

The setting was wholly unmetallic, but Anvil didn't change its act a lick. As the film credits were still rolling, the house lights went up, and Kudlow, in the flesh and dressed in black, strolled up a staircase playing stock metal licks and screaming unintelligibles into the pickups of his Flying V. He then joined his mates beneath the screen and kicked into "March of the Crabs," a tune from Anvil's 1982 LP "Metal on Metal." That opening, like the rest of the 25-minute set, had all the energy and irony-free cartoonishness you'd want from the band in the movie. You never had to wait long for a grandiose and super-noisy pick slide from Kudlow or for Reiner to finger-roll his drumsticks with his hands held high.

Reiner really is a great drummer. His solo on "White Rhino" reminded folks that he was an early proponent of the now-standard heavy-metal kick drum roll, which creates the sort of rapid-fire sound you get when you put your tongue against the roof of your mouth and blow -- only much, much louder. But as he pounded away, one couldn't help but notice that Reiner was wearing the same necklace he talked about in the movie, the one with the golden drumsticks that his now-dead Auschwitz-survivor father gave to him as a teenager to show support for his musical endeavors, however unprofitable they might be. Go ahead, try not to cheer for that guy!

The performance, like the movie, closed with Anvil delivering "Metal on Metal," the anthem Kudlow and Reiner wrote when they were young, the song that was going to make them famous. The tune ends with Kudlow screaming "Keep on rocking!" Good God, has he practiced what he preached.

The Crocodiles were entertaining, but their stage show definitely needs something else.  I really dig their cd, and it was cool seeing them, but too much of their music was prerecorded.  A drummer/bassist/keyboardist, or something would have definitely helped their stage presence.  They were ok though, dont get me wrong i dont mind bands that are less than traditional... but more players would have been nice.  They did have decent stage presence, the singer liked to twirl on his heels in his wingtips quite a bit and looked like he was having fun, and the guitarist did the guitarist thing...

Holy Fuck were great.  It was nice seeing them do a full set after only seeing them open for Sons and Daughters last year, and at Lollapalooza.  I was able to get a spot right by the stage and was able to really watch what the guys were doing.  I love the fact that they essentially take crap electronics and make great tunes with them.  They must practice all the time, because the two keyboard players have their instrument and cable switching down to a science.  The music was great (unless you hate HF for some reason...) and the crowd wasnt too crowded.  The sound was also excellent, some of the best I have heard at the Hotel, very clear, and bass heavy.  I made sure to bring earplugs, cause last year either Sons and Daughters or Holy Fuck caused my ears to ring for months, resulting in me having to go to the audiologist and getting custom made plugs made.  

All in all, it was a B+ show.  If the Crocodiles were a little more exciting, maybe it would have been an A- because of how good HF were.

Yeah, EJ is one great guy. I like him a whole lot. He's also one Hell of a musician, both musically and on the technical side of things. Always has some good insight and/or helpful pointers for the geeks. You should also check out his other bands, Highspire and House Of Fire. Think you personally might prefer House Of Fire because it's more Dandy's sounding. (Not to be confused with all of those other House/Of/On/Fire bands. I've already gotten on him about that! LOL.) Both of his other bands are very good.

Please tell him I said 'hello' the next time you see him...and to get The Morning After Girls down this way soon! Hey, I'd be happy with seeing House Of Fire or Highspire but the Highspire thing isn't going to happen. Oh, and tell him that you heard from Jaguar that the word around is that 'he's so fey'. It's an inside joke from a long time ago we have from something I found and told him about. He'll laugh.

Sunday - Marty and Sacha (The Morning After Girls) @ Living Room

and Jag - EJ rocks! He has got to be the nicest, greatest, coolest guy ever :) And Marty was equally cool, but there was something pretty awesome about EJ. Ill prob be seeing him again on Sunday night hanging out with him at the show. Ive now been labeled one of their biggest fans since Ive been promoting their shows out here and said I'd help out with selling merch if they needed it.

Yeah, EJ is one great guy. I like him a whole lot. He's also one Hell of a musician, both musically and on the technical side of things. Always has some good insight and/or helpful pointers for the geeks. You should also check out his other bands, Highspire and House Of Fire. Think you personally might prefer House Of Fire because it's more Dandy's sounding. (Not to be confused with all of those other House/Of/On/Fire bands. I've already gotten on him about that! LOL.)

Jag - long story but i missed the show last night and didnt get to see EJ if he made it. stupid subway trains in the city were a nightmare and caused total havoc :( ah well. seems TMAG play monthly at the living room. they are planning a full tour soon was the last i heard when i talked to him. not sure when it might happen, but its in the works :)

This week: - Saturday - Dean & Britta @ Le Poisson Rouge

luckily things should dry out in time for sunday's phish show.  i can only imagine what that scene would look (and smell!) like in a downpour.  actually, maybe that would wash 'em off.

score is now 1-1, last night belonged to NIN.  i read a couple of reviews of the camden show - some loved it, others noticed that something was off for trent & co.  not so last night - they came out and melted faces.  janes was good, although it felt like they were going through the motions a little.  dave seemed to spend more time intereacting with the hotties in the front row than with the band.  perry is a great front man, was in his element, but the lack of a GA pit hurt the energy level and interaction with the crowd.  on the other hand, no pit allowed me to be 4 feet away from the stage (all hail the efforts of thedirector and callat703 for making that happen - absolutely ridiculous seats).  the missus, who is just young enough to have missed JA's heyday, didn't quite know what to make of perry.  visually, she compared him to an old-school french gay porn star.  i think he'd take that as a compliment :)

street sweeper were, once again, thoroughly enjoyable.  morello has totally come in to his own as a guitarist.  attn NYC'ers: their album launch party is june 16th at the gramercy theater.  wish i could make it.

That NIN setlist, though, is interesting. Lots of songs I didn't think they'd play/I've never seen. Not the hit-fest one would assume. Still would love them to do Perfect Drug or And All That Could Have Been live.

that's been the template for this tour - JA doesn't vary at all in its greatest hits set (link (http://www.setlist.fm/stats/janes-addiction-13d689e9.html?tour=NIN|JA+2009)), whereas "head like a hole" and "march of the pigs" are the only songs NIN have been playing consistently each night (link (http://www.setlist.fm/stats/nine-inch-nails-1bd6a5bc.html?tour=NIN|JA+2009)).  they've been playing a lot of rarities.  "hurt" was the highlight for me last night, but the whole set kicked.  monday is an off night for the tour so expect all bands to be refreshed on tuesday.  wish i could be there.

Damn...that NIN setlist from Saturday looks great. The Camden show was just lacking something. Trent even admitted that his head was somewhere else. I'm bummed that I saw them on an off night, but it was so cool to see Jane's absolutely shred because I'd never seen them before. I had such a good time at that concert. I repeat, I couldn't ever imagine seeing them without Eric Avery. And Stephen Perkins is just fantastic too. I hope everyone will have a blast at this. I'll give a report on the Beasties.

I like their live sound (mostly because of Sitek's "less is more" approach). But yeah, their material is still rearranged live. Great show tonight except for that song "Family Tree" which sucked all the energy out of the room. Slow, plotting ballads aren't TVOTR's strong suit.

I thought "Family Tree" was actually a highlight.  Not a big fan of that song on the album but the live arrangement was great.

Show was great and sound was good, though the vocals were buried in the mix at times.  I'm not sure if it's the evolution of their overall approach to playing live or just how they were set up last night, but I remember them being much clearer and having a lot more separation when they were at the club supporting Return to Cookie Mountain in '06.  This was more of an in-your-face-and-rocking-substantially effort from them.

another highlight was them not playing the mariner's revenge.

I really enjoyed the Decemberists as well.  I didnt listen to the album before the show so it would be new and i am glad i did it that way (im getting the album this week finally now that i have seen it).  It definitely was great: the pacing, the change ups, the sound, the stage set... Really top notch production.  It was really fun having it presented as an united piece (though im still a bit unsure what the actual story of the album/show is about). 

I will definitely catch them again (even though its the same show) at Bonnaroo this week.    Im not sure if the show would have converted any Decemberists haters, but for fans it was definitely a treat. 

It was also my best friends daughter's (10 yo) first show (that wasnt Hannah Montana).  She enjoyed the hell out of it as well, and i am glad MPP is so kid friendly. The next step is to take her to a club venue show... But that might wait awhile...

The new album just makes me want her to have an amazing light show. And isn't this her first show on this tour? Or am I making that up... Anyone else going?

Post by: xneverwherex on June 16, 2009, 02:42:44 pm
I cant say Im someone who knows Josh Ritter, only by name (and maybe a song). But I knew this would be quite awesome. I worked the VIP area (for guests of summerstage, typically), but the conductor of the pops ended up having some friends up there. So I got to hear a bit about what was going on and how it went (which prob added some 'cool' factor for me). The conductor kept saying how this would be an awesome 90 min set but it seemed louder than anything he was ever used to. And he had said they hadnt practiced too much so it would be interesting.

It started out with just the pops playing before Josh Ritter came on stage and then it was incredibly awesome. The crowd was seated most the time early on, and then one of his bigger songs came on and everyone got up and was singing and dancing along. The night held out (ie no rain - which hasnt happened much this June) and it turned out to be perfect. He dedicated a song to his parents who were there celebrating their 40th anniversary. He played a song with a poet from NYC. And there was also a song he played with a violinist, Hilary Hahn, who was playing at Town Hall later in the week. She was really great.

And the encore - well it just made my night. He introduced the person joining him onstage as the first person to ever take a chance on him and then out came Glen Hansard. Simply brilliant! The song was Come and Find me.

Setlist:

Best for the Best
Other Side
Rumors
Wolves
Girl in the War
Temptation of Adam
Thin Blue Flame (w/ Hilary Hahn)
To the Dogs or Whoever
Monster Ballads
Edge of the World (w/ poem by Mark Strand)

Right Moves
Kathleen
Come and Find Me (w/ Glen Hansard)
Empty Hearts




Fri - Josh Ritter & The NY Pops - Summerstage
How was this show?
Also, anyone have comments from Doves' show?

You had me until the last paragraph. And then I was oh so glad I didn't go. Did Hansard have his daughter there to play piano?

I cant say Im someone who knows Josh Ritter, only by name (and maybe a song). But I knew this would be quite awesome. I worked the VIP area (for guests of summerstage, typically), but the conductor of the pops ended up having some friends up there. So I got to hear a bit about what was going on and how it went (which prob added some 'cool' factor for me). The conductor kept saying how this would be an awesome 90 min set but it seemed louder than anything he was ever used to. And he had said they hadnt practiced too much so it would be interesting.

It started out with just the pops playing before Josh Ritter came on stage and then it was incredibly awesome. The crowd was seated most the time early on, and then one of his bigger songs came on and everyone got up and was singing and dancing along. The night held out (ie no rain - which hasnt happened much this June) and it turned out to be perfect. He dedicated a song to his parents who were there celebrating their 40th anniversary. He played a song with a poet from NYC. And there was also a song he played with a violinist, Hilary Hahn, who was playing at Town Hall later in the week. She was really great.

Title: Re: This week rollcall
Post by: serpent boy on June 16, 2009, 04:54:44 pm
And how was Eddie?
(sorry for all the questions, I'm living vicariously right now. Plus, there is so much chatter about shows before they happen and often not as much after - which is what I mostly want to know about - the show(s). If you don't or are too shy to review / comment, grading is fine. Thanks!)

Very enjoyable. The crowd wasn't quite as rowdy as last year at Warner Theatre, and Eddie was in good form. Usually he botches the more difficult songs like "Guaranteed," but he was spot on last night. There were a few singalongs: "Sometimes," "Hide Your Love Away," "Let My Love Open the Door," "Small Town," and "Hard Sun."

I was in the balcony, row K, so the seats weren't the best, but the acoustics at Lyric Opera House were great! Plus, the show was a bit more meaningful because Chris McCandless's (Into the Wild) sister Carine and her family were in attendance.

Here's the setlist:
Walking the Cow
Brain Damage --> Sometimes
Trouble
Around the Bend
I Am Mine
Far Behind
No Ceiling
Guaranteed
Rise
Picture in a Frame
You're True
Open All Night
Driftin'
You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
Let My Love Open the Door
Parting Ways
Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town
Porch
---
Society (w/ Jerry Hannan, the songwriter)
Throw Your Arms Around Me (w/ Liam Finn)
Golden State (w/ Eliza Jane Barnes)
Forever Young
Wishlist
Arc

Hard Sun (w/ Liam and Eliza Jane)

The Tallest Man on Earth set last night was the best thing I've seen since Ghost.


Fantastic!


I (and seemingly a good size chunk of the crowd) knew that it wasn't going to get much better than that and left before John Vanderslice came on.

Ok before you start making assumptions on what I did heres the deal. Someone said theyd pay xyz $$ for a ticket. I told them I had a ticket and would sell them for what they wanted to pay. Its insanely hard to get a ticket to the show and I would never try and sell it for that value. But if someone is offering why should I not help them out.

But youre right - in this economic downturn in NYC I should have thougth of them first and told them i will only sell for face. Btw - you dont have a clue what I paid and what I sold. So dont be so quick to assume that I ripped someone off. And good money to me, might not be good money to you.

Doves were alright.

I went in not knowing any of their material at all; the more rocking upbeat stuff, I liked a lot. The slower stuff got a little coldplay-ish and made me queasy. That housier/spacier song they closed with was probably my fav.

The Belly Up is great! Probably the tiniest venue they'll play on the mini-tour. I think it's a 600-capacity venue, if not a little bit more. There's a REALLY REALLY good sushi spot like, a block away called Masuo's that kicks ass. Please check it out!

I bought a Tortoise ticket but selling it outside shouldn't be an issue if I so decide on FotL.

Was there but totally missed you apparently. I loved it, way better than i expected. Nice to see a band with some personality. Instead of the "We're selling merch" or obligatory Obama comments. The first band was pretty bad however...

Is it me or was that Fleet Foxes show bland and generic (early)? They're one of those bands that if you've seen once, you've seen all of what they have to offer, I guess. On the other hand, both Espers sets killed. New stuff has me looking forward to the October release. FF are in desperate need of new material and more vocal range.

Are you kidding?  Espers might be the most boring band I have ever seen.  Fleet Foxes were great and the new songs sound really good.  I might be wrong, but I think they have already recorded their next album, or at least started to.

Did anyone attend the late show?  Were FF any different?

What I caught of the Xavier Rudd set was a steaming pile of crap. I remember him being a cool novelty solo act but now he's put some awful generic jamband together. Lost my patience after roughly half an hour.



Run for cover was fun. Blondie, Weezer (Rivers impression was spot on!) and Cure cover bands were all really good.

Did they do the full version?  I had a text from Joe about them playing that and "Mogwai Fear Satan"; the last time I saw them, they did a way shortened version of the later.

I don't think I'll ever forget the wall of distortion that hit when they played "My Father My King" at the Ottobar.

Yeah, MFMK was the full version. I think it lasted a good 25 minutes. I think Mogwai Fear Satan is always a few minutes shorter than the album version live. Chris Brokaw sat in on drums for it making for double drummers. Brokaw also began his set with a nice guitar ambient piece that lasted roughly 15 minutes. I prefered that over much of the rest of his set.

One-sentence weekend reviews:
Tracy Chapman was a snoozefest with the exception of a couple bluesier numbers but that was to be expected.

Skygreen Leopards were a big disappointment but the band who played before them, Oblisk, who I'd never heard of were impressive.

Mos Def went on only half an hour late and killed it; too bad I only caught the 2nd half of the show due to standing through  that
letdown of a Skygreen set.

Screen Vinyl Image did their usual dancegaze thing.

Rest of week:
either Espers/KV or De La Soul
Cyndi/Rosie
Trash Can Sinatras
Robert Gordon
either Bat for Lashes or Phish
Woods
death from exhaustion

Trash Can Sinatras started rough. Lots of feedback during the first three songs, but eventually they pulled it off. Great to hear the older songs...not so sure about the new songs...

I enjoyed Bat For Lashes immensely  ;D    great band backing her up esp. the drummer. So into her more danceable songs than the slow ones.

this week: Dungen/Woods at Ottobar, Breeders at Black Cat...anything else I'm missing?

bat for lashes was pretty damn impressive but would have been even better without the incessant chatter.  the missus took it upon herself to shush a few folks - instant entertainment right there.  BfL's set was a tad over 60 minutes, which include the 5 minutes of clapping before the encore - a bit on the short side.  openers, "other lives" were alright but nothing special.  their tired pacific northwest hippie look was borderline annoying.

we were on the floor, left side, front half (but just past half).  it wasn't crowded at all around us, someone could have made it all the way to the front if really wanted to.  we had a good spot where we were and couldn't be bothered to nudge ourselves closer.  did anyone else notice how short the crowd was?!?  i swear that in the first 10-12 "rows" of people, maybe three or four of them were more than 5'6" tall.  it was awesome :)

and azag, you would have complimented the missus perfectly - she complained about the openers (but quietly!).  having you around for BfL would have made it the perfect bitch-fest and would have fully interfered with my ability to enjoy the show :P

Agreed that Bat for Lashes was impressive. I hadn't heard much from her but the live set surpassed anything I had heard online. And yes - the drummer was excellent.

Going to see OLP tonite in order to maintain my Canadian citizenship. I saw them at the Ottawa Bluesfest last month and they really impressed me. They took a lot of flak for the previous two albums and what I heard of Burn Burn is definitely more like the early stuff. Looking forward to it.

how long did the trash cans play in DC? They put on an excellent show in NYC. I liked that you could buy a recording of the show right after the set. They played a good 2 hour set. Paul had this ingenius idea that anytime someone yelled out a song - he'd play a few seconds of it on the guitar. He said he was in a teasing mood, and Frank was wondering what the hell was wrong with him. It was pretty amusing, but rather mean at the same time. I really liked their new stuff, but wished theyd played just a few more of their earlier songs.

seems theyre playing 18-20 songs on all nights -- very cool.

Trash Can Sinatras started rough. Lots of feedback during the first three songs, but eventually they pulled it off. Great to hear the older songs...not so sure about the new songs...

I enjoyed Bat For Lashes immensely  ;D    great band backing her up esp. the drummer. So into her more danceable songs than the slow ones.

this week: Dungen/Woods at Ottobar, Breeders at Black Cat...anything else I'm missing?

where did you see white rabbits?  i think you might have been looking at an old post.  please check the date.  posts aren't deleted, so last week's rollcall (and the week before that, and before that, and...) is still posted here.

did the amps play 9:30? pretty sure it was black cat. there was a breeders show at 930 sometime in 1997, i think the openers were jonathan fire*eater, brendan benson and lutefisk. but that was a while ago, i could be wrong.

No I do not believe there was a Breeders show at the 930 in 1997. ..that was probably the Amps show I was referring to...

I say this because I was a huge Breeders fan at the time and I dont' recall them playing.. I thought it was Kim and Kelley with the Amps

Again I could be wrong.. my mom threw away my ticket stubs when i left them with her so I cannot be sure.........

We haven't talked about how much the OLP show sucked yet. So much of the older material was played so sloppily, it was offensive.
 And on top of that, Raine decided to take much of the night off; staying quiet for as much as half a song at a time while he had the audience sing the lyrics. Joe, you suck just as much for going to Dungen/Woods.

week's roll-call/recap:

tuesday: the roots @ the highline ballroom
amazing, amazing show.  people really need to check this one out if they're in NYC on a tuesday or wednesday night.  it starts late, so you could conceivably do another show.  this week they had henry butler join in for the first half of the show - kick-ass electric blues.  the band's horn section is ridiculous.  i've been to this show three times now, and every time i leave with a huge smile on my face.  and it's only $10!  GET ON THIS, PEOPLE.

wednesday: pet shop boys @ hammerstein
great show, although i slightly preferred the last tour.  PSB still bring the broadway fabu factor to their stage show: dancers, numerous costume changes, and a very creative set that is constantly changing and being used in creative ways.  this show was a little shorter than the previous one, 90 mins vs. 110-120'ish.  folks looking for some entetainment tonight could do worse than this show.  a noticed a few cheap tix on CL...

saturday: !!! @ BC, maybe.

there was quite of bit of chatter but i'm slowly starting to accept that as part of the modern-day concert experience, unfortunately.  where i was - dead center of the floor - the talking was mostly washed out by the music.  the main PA was LOUD, more so than i would have expected as a PSB show.  weird that so may people up front were talking - you'd think that the hardcore fans would be against the rail and enthralled with the show.  predictably there were a lot of gay club-boys in attendance and for many this was more of a party & a celebration more than a show that one concentrates on.  chatter was to be expected, really.

yes, it was an expensive ticket but someone/something has to pay to schlep around all the equipment.

Anyone go to Yo La Tengo last night? I really enjoyed it...though the two girls that got up on stage to dance reminded me of Elaine from Seinfeld trying to dance. A full body dry heave doesn't even begin to describe how bad and out of place they were. I appreciate the thrill of getting on a stage, trust me I've been there, but there a little something called the right time and place. Just awful.

Fun time though. And a special thanks to Thatguy and Eddie! You guys are the best.

Now...anyone going to the Weakerthans show tomorrow? Friends who saw the show in Boston said that there are some good setlist changes that we should look forward to (bastard wouldn't be more specific). And they're still pulling someone from the crowd up to play a solo so all you guitarists should get in the front row.

I had the misfortune of seeing Passion Pit at the Monolith Festival two weekends ago.  I felt like I was watching High School The Musical:  My freshman year at college.  They were awful but the kids age 18-24 seemed to love it.  I quite enjoyed this review of them from the Westword:  "Wow, do people like Passion Pit. Lots of people. The entire upper area that makes up the SoCo stage was absolutely jam-packed with people, and every one of them seemed really excited for Passion Pit. For the life of me, I couldn't really see why. Some of the songs sounded incredibly retro, like they wouldn't be a bit out of place anchoring a John Hughes soundtrack. That wasn't necessarily a killer. No, the killer was the singer's heavy reliance on a caterwauling falsetto that was apparently supposed to communicate emotion and passion, but instead communicated "My Pants are too tight, and I may have injured my sack because of it." Based on fans' reactions, this band clearly inspires excitement, but the vocals seem to be a love/hate proposition, and for me, it was hate. "

unfortunately not, lamed out this weekend - skipped both moby and datarock.  i was just tired on friday, and ended up spending saturday night drinking champagne and wine in a hot tub.  after a couple of drinks in 102 degree bubbly water, motivation to move non existant :)

i did make it to telephon tel aviv - good solid set, a tad dancier than i expected.  level of crowd chatter was almost unbearable.  good show.

Chain and the Gang weren't too bad when they opened for M. Ward. Ian's mid-song chatter got to be a little overkill, though.
Has anyone else seen that super awkward Ian/Kevin Shields interview on vice.tv? It was right after it was announced that MBV were finishing up the follow-up to Loveless.
Parts of that were excruciating.

I went to last night's show.  Soft Power is fantastic.  They pack a hell of a punch live which I wasn't expecting based on the myspace songs they have up.  Didn't have any desire to see Chain and the Gang.

Please let me know how Pink turns out to be...I'm not a huge fan of her new album, but I *do* love her voice.

okay, i have the biggest girl crush on her. loved the show, hated the row of 13 yr olds behind me. when they werent screaming at the top of their lungs, they were talking loudly. wish i had purchased a tic for the NY & PA shows too.

anyhoo, she played for 2 hrs, no encore. had about 4 costume changes. i dont know how she does all that jumping around and manages to sound soo good. she did a few cover songs: bohemian rhapsody, a zeppelin song, crazy (the crowd seemed really confused with this one - they just stood there lol), and her intro sounded like an ac/dc song but i'm not sure. oh, she did a steamy version of "touch myself" too - good stuff. i was very entertained and cant wait for her to come back. i find it interesting that both her and britney had circus themed albums and tours. she didnt go up in the air too much but her dancers did. two of them did the routine that pink performed at the VMAs.

she did a good mix of songs from all albums. she sung the hell out of family portrait and i love dear mr. president. i was hoping to hear fingers but nope. i dont think the crowd was as energetic as it could've been, esp those on the floor. the people in the seats seemed more excited. maybe being monday had something to do with it? it was a very mixed crowd, was surprised to see so many older people.

ting tings were okay, not a band i'd pay to see but i really like that "not my name song" and the lead singer has a ton of energy. i think they played for 40 min? the between band entertainment (showing ppl dancing on the big screen) was funny. whoever chose the songs did a good job. folx really do put on a show for the cameras.

she really is a good singer/performer and doesnt get the recognition she deserves.

oh, some guy booed her after her dear mr president performance and she laughed lol

"I am truly sorry for any inconvenience experienced by those who already purchased tickets for the D.C. and Toronto shows. I sincerely hope you're able to attend at the new venues.
A couple days ago I had a really intense personal experience and it made it very clear to me that I cannot and should not play in religious buildings on this tour. Please understand, I have nothing against religion or temples of any kind. In fact, I love going to churches and hearing music there - but I can't play my music there after what happened the day before yesterday.
The best I can do to describe my experience, is to say that the world opened up to me, and I received it, as Spirit and Love and of course, a lot of fun and pleasure. It was a sexual feeling, and I just didn't feel right about bringing that into a holy place, like a church or synagogue. My choice to move the venues is out of respect for this feeling, for myself and my body, and for the buildings themselves.
Fortunately, even though this was all last minute, we were able to keep the tour more or less intact, and will still play every city or region, as planned. Once again, I'm really sorry for any trouble this causes, but it was something I felt very strongly about. Thank you always for your love and belief in the feelings I work to bring you." - Andrew W.K.

My week:

Monday - I was originally planning to go to the Lebowski Fest at the 9:30 Club... until I realized that it mostly overlapped with my Japanese class.  As it turned out, I was so exhausted from reporting to work at 8 a.m. for my new day job that I could barely make it through class.

(Did anyone here go to Lebowski Fest?  If so, how was it?)

Tuesday - I DJ'd at the Kinky/Nayas show at the 9:30 Club.  (Will post set list sometime soon.)

Friday - Probably going to Moneytown at Dahlak.  Guest DJs include DJs from Fatback and other events.

Saturday - I'm doing the opening set for Daz-I-Kue (of Bugz in the Attic fame) at Eighteenth Street Lounge.

Sunday - D.C. Record Fair earlier in the day, then the Bajofondo show at the 9:30 Club.

I went to that Kinky show. God the club is frigid when it's nearly empty. Good high energy show, though.

Thought about Lebowski fest but laziness got the best of me. A few staffers I asked about it yesterday said it was fun. Almost like a Rocky Horror kind of scene with people yelling out lines from the movie, old dudes dressed in robes and others as different characters from the movie and everyone drinking White Russians.

Anyone going to see Great Lake Swimmers tonite at the Black Cat? I saw them Tues in Philly and thought they sounded fantastic. Julie Fader isn't touring with them at this time, but Melinda Mulholland joined them and did a great job on violin and vox (and is a lovely redhead to boot - personal weakness, sorry!)

I was pleasantly surprised by Wooden Birds (lead by Andrew Kenny, ex of American Analog Set). Every song tended to sound the same but it's not bad for a 30 minute opening set.

Ohhh, then after that I went to 3 days of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass to tone down the gayness of the night before........

kylie minogue on sunday    :D
my sister and I might be the only girls there. ha ha

Weak performance showing up DC re Os Mutantes. You won't get that chance again.

Anyways, great time and a treat... Had not realized how good a guitar player Sergio was.... They played about 5-6 songs from the new album and  Minha Menina, Baby, Ando medio desligado, Bat Macumba, Panis etc... They went on about 9:15 and played til about 11...

The missus and I checked out Brandi Carlile on a whim last night. Never heard any of her stuff before but some friends we trust raved about her. It was well worth checking out. She reminds of a cross between Jenny Lewis and Neko Case. She's got far more range than Lewis and lacks the character of Neko. Also, her songwriting is a tad bit amateurish (but she's only 28). But her voice packs a punch and she's definitely worth seeing. (btw - what the f was up with the lineup for food yesterday? All the way back to the soundboard?)

Now looking forward to Bob Mould on Saturday night. Might even stick around for Blowoff  - haven't been to one of those since the days when it was confined to the Back Bar.

John Lennon didn't turn 28 until 1968, Paul McCartney turned 28 in 1970, Mick Jagger in 1971, and Keith Richards in 1971. I'm just saying.

Ms. Carlile could very well be a late bloomer, but there's also a good chance she's already peaked by 28.
