I never make it to these meetups.. there's always something... but I'll be at Moroder barring an unforeseen catastrophe....

Look for me holding a bag with a record....

I have a lot of teens and tweens on my Facebook page and all joking aside, its really weird how many of them absolutely love Gorillaz. Like their biggest hit is older than some of these kids. I really don't understand how they've become such a seminal act for the under-20 crowd but they are.

There are a ton of people on stage and a ton of visuals, not all of which are cartoons.  They won't have all the guests from the album, but there is usually a special guest or two.  It's a fun show and I recommend going.

When Gorillaz played the Patriot Center on their Plastic Beach tour, their house band included Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, and the guests included De La Soul, Mos Def, Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano, and Bobby Womack (RIP).  I thought it was an exceptional show.

I pulled a fairly awful seat in the pre-sale this morning--row TT, right center--but I am still very excited.

That Patriot Center show for Plastic Beach was incredible. The endless parade of special guests was cool. Bobby Womack still had an excellent set of pipes. I also remember Damon Albarn tripping on a cable or something and playing it off as cool as he could.

Here's my review from their last US tour, which I think answers your question.

You are a solid B-/B writer and cultural critic.

This is maybe the biggest compliment I've ever given a boardie in the open.

Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher on the Making of Gorillaz?s ?We Got the Power?

I thought it might be cute, the idea of us singing about the power to love each other. Of course, no one?s asked Liam what he thinks about the song yet. No doubt he?d have a fantastic one-liner about what a bunch of fucking knobheads we are.

That was a great article. I especially loved this line from Noel:

Quote
Damon wondered what Liam would think about you two singing about loving each other.

Listen, nobody gives a fuck what Liam thinks about anything.

Goddamn Liam is so damn funny. His twitter has a series of terrible photos of Noel with "POTATO" written underneath them.

If I had to hang out again with Liam or Noel, I'm team Noel all the way. He's fucking funny, he's pretty nice, and he just seems more like a regular guy. Liam is impenetrable and you cannot decipher a single thing he says. That being said, I do love his Tweets.

I don't care if this whole Liam/Noel thing is a lie/ruse/publicity stunt because I am so damn entertained by it.
