Elvis Costello is in Gettysburg tonite...hmmm, how was the last DC show? was it at DAR? 

This will probably be a longer show than the one with Blondie (who I have no desire to see)
I thought it was fantastic...don't really like the new stuff
played 27 songs...

Just wanted to stop by and say Dan Boeckner was as amazing as expected on Saturday. I didn't think the new album was that great upon first listen, it was less of his patented dancy electro rock than was on the previous Operators album and EP. But the songs were great live and the Handsome Furs Sound Kapital songs were incredible.

There are few musicians as brilliant and talented as Dan around. He is certainly one of a kind.

I was there!  Probably gonna be in my top 5 shows this year.

The new album is 10X better live and Dan's voice was unbelievably great.

Did you dance?  It was definitely a workout.

Vas, Challenged:

Can you two either just kiss already -- or, alternately, star in a buddy cop movie together (but, either way, get it over with so the rest of us can go back to our lowbrow insults and hijinks)? Thanks.

Mountain Goats Thursday.

Never been to Ottobar before.  Are there any decent dinner & drinks spots nearby?

I second R House - it has several food/drink options... park your car in the ottobar lot then walk there.

Clavel has good ambience but way overpriced food  (go to Mi Comalito instead - http://micomalitorestaurant.com)


some options

Haven't been to Obar this year. Did anything move into the spot where Parts and Labor was?

No, empty, and I have parked over there in its lot.

Maybe Fort Reno tonight if the weather holds and it isn't 1000 degrees.  Haven't had a chance to take the kids yet this year and we missed the Hammered Hulls night.
