first time seeing Sigur Ros last night and thought they were incredible. LED game was strong.

also first time seeing the new renovations at Merriweather (bathrooms, etc) - very nice!

Trump, shoves another leader so he can be in the center of the photo.  A Montana GOP candidate attacks and body slams a reporter for asking a simple question, and then wins the election. Yeah, sounds about right for America.

I really don't get Bon Iver. But clearly I'm in the minority. I have never seen a GA pit THAT packed at Merriweather, and so was the pavilion. There were a good amount of people on the lawn too. A friend of mine had an extra ticket, so I went. I'm glad I checked it out, just so that I can keep up with the way music is changing, but it kinda just made me feel disconnected. What was also weird is how Justin kept that audience's attention. That is not music that I would say is suited for a huge amount of people, but then again, what do I know? Merriweather is definitely one of my very favorite outdoor/big venues. It may not be the Hollywood Bowl (still haven't been to the Gorge or Red Rocks yet), but it's always a great place to see a show.

I agree... I really liked his first album but after that, I really don't get it either.

Hopefully you caught Hiss Golden Messenger.

After catching them on Youtube, I made a point of missing them when they opened for DBT. That allowed me time for an extra beer at Churchkey.

Your opinion means nothing to me.

Oh come now, this is the very definition of boring, and that mustache is shit. I mean who the hell ever wears a mustache other than 80 year old firemen?

Weren't you at a DBT show??? Speakin' of boring...

As the board's biggest alt-country fan, get yourself a 3.25oz pour of your finest cellared beer, listen to Lateness of Dancers from start to finish and come back tomorrow with a valid opinion.

I'll give it a try, but from all I've heard, they're generic as hell (even for an admittedly generic genre like alt-country), like The War on Drugs without any catchy tunes.

So I split a pint of an Aslin DIPA with my wife last night with dinner and then queued up a youtube mix of Hiss Golden Messenger and asked her what she thought of it.

"Boring, innocuous, Jack Johnson shit." Then a minute later "Turn this shitty music off."

I did not turn it off, it played through three HGM songs and then inexplicable started playing War on Drugs songs.

She says the same kind of things about music that she even knows that I like.  Sad
