never choose music . . . over comfort.  comfort makes music better.  rain ruins live shows.  you will remember it in ten years, and will only remember the rain and how awful it was.

It was raining on Friday Night at Newport.  I mean pouring.  And I was in a tented stage.   And the Last Bison just finished and they were incredibly good.  Mountain Goat was going to come on next.  And I wanted to see Amanda Palmer who was on after him in the same tent.   But all these douchebag hipsters were coming in to see Mountain Goats.  And I knew it is bad enough that I don't like Mountain Goats but to have a bunch of a-holes in the tent with me was too much to bare.  So I went into the pouring rain to watch Feist play.  It turned into a torrential downpour.  By the time I got back to the tent for Amanda Palmer there was no space left so I had to watch from outside getting drenched.  But it was worth it to see Feist instead of Mountain Goats. 

Its not too late.

Damn there are some great releases on there... I would LOVE it if one of you picked up these for me  ;D

    Animal Collective ? Sung Tongs (Fat Cat)
    Xiu Xiu ? Women as Lovers (Bad Paintings)
    Potty Mouth ? The Spins (Marshall Teller)

I wish MD stores were taking place.  Or Stores in Raleigh (I will be at Hopscotch on the 7th).

Commercially produced cassettes were kind of never cool for me because of timing.  Recordable blank cassettes ruled the day because of the "mix-tape" phenomenon, but my first car came after the prominence of the CD, so to buy a bands cassette tape for me was never really more useful than an LP or CD.  I probably didn't buy more than 10 commercially produced cassettes in my lifetime, but made thousands of tapes from blanks in my day.  Well, until the recordable CD anyway.

If you were a true music fan and audiophile you'd know vinyl has a warmer audio range      no place sounds as good as the 9:30 club       real cassettes have a more gossamer, magnetic static ear-feel.
