Anyone listening to this NPR thing? The interviewer sounds totally disinterested and disconnected.

I would be if the server would actually connect me.  It keeps flashing the title of the Interview and then repeating a Jenny Lewis review, over and over again.

i'm starting to rethink going to this spot every time i come to the club for a sold-out show ... sure, there's great sight-lines and usually some space even when the place is packed, but for some reason it seems like a magnet for at least one pack of loud drunk girls ... any other suggestions for a good spot for a sold-out show?

so apparently they're now offering more tickets at face value?
 
 which really sucks considering I paid $80 for mine on ebay. AO(SJDF I am having the worst luck with this show. but it should be really great nonetheless.

Ahh, so I'm a bit late, but I went to the show last night. I'd never seen them before and thought they were absolutely fabulous. I really wanted to hear Step Into My Office Baby, but I suppose that was made up for with Century of Fakers, which I also enjoy. (Really wanted to hear Seeing Other People & Le Pastie...) The New Pornographers...let's just say they were amusing. They wouldn't play the song I kept shouting, and I assume they heard me (I was in the very front row, we got there around 5:30), but I suppose it's because Neko Case would have had to be there. The drummer was the best part. He was just plain awesome.
 
 We had to leave early - because the metro stops running at 12, I guess. That kind of sucked. So we missed the encore and several of the ending songs.
 
 But what made up for it was, on the way out, I heard this guy shouting at me if I wanted to eat chili dogs with him across the street. Then I realized it was the New Pornographers and their drummer, still drunk on the wine.   :)   It was so cute. I really wanted to go, but I had to go home. They kept pleading for us to come. It was great.

By any chance, were you among the group of dancing girls stage right?

I really enjoyed B&S last night, though I don't know if they were any better than when I first saw them at Constitution Hall (Maybe it was the first time excitement thing. I really enjoyed all of the Tigermilk era selections and was thoroughly impressed with all of the new material.  
 
 I too would recommend If your feeling sinister
 
 As for the New Pornographers, I'm only mildly familiar with them, and while they weren't terrible last night (I enjoyed the songs), their performance didn't make me want to go out and buy some of their collection.
 
 Hope Stuart gets a medium tonight

I'm really excited about tonight.  Although, I'm worried that they will play past midnight again, because that will mean that I'll be leaving early to catch the metro   :confused:

???  That would be VERY unusual for 9:30.  AT most, I'd think just a few if the bands were saving tickets.  Again, even that would be VERY unusual.
 
 Unless you're talking about random people offering tickets for face value.  That always happens -- last minute, friends bail and folks not out to make a buck have tickets available they just want to get rid of.  A friend of mine had FIVE tickets available for last night's show at 4:30 that day.

EDIT: I just realized we were stage LEFT and nowhere near the food stand. So...no, that wasn't us  :)
 
 Ah, Lukas, you'll probably need to leave early   :(

tickets set aside for bands, etc sometimes get sold at the last minute, it's rare though...

I was stage left too, and there was a large contingent of chatty girls of the scream "I love you" and grab at Stuart when he walked by variety.  
 
 Irritating people are at every show, especially down near the front.  I've learned to tune them out.

Neko Case
 "Fox Confessor Brings the Flood"
 (Anti-)
 CD Reviews: The New York Times
 
 It would have been easy for Neko Case to stay retro. Ms. Case, who was born in Virginia and has lived in Seattle, Chicago and Vancouver, British Columbia, has a torchy voice that's part Patsy Cline, part Loretta Lynn, and it sounds right at home in country weepers or folk-rock anthems. Onstage, Ms. Case still sings her share of love songs. But she isn't content with straightforward stories or simple declarations any more.
 
 On her most recent albums, and as a member of the mostly Canadian songwriters' collective the New Pornographers, she has moved toward more imagistic, even cryptic songs. Apparently the New Pornographers satisfied Ms. Case's frisky side, because her new album, "Fox Confessor Brings the Flood," turns inward with ballads and waltzes.
 
 Ms. Case produced the album, recording in Arizona with members of country-stretching bands like Giant Sand and Calexico. The music is rootsy but not traceable to any particular era. The guitars might use an old-fashioned twangy reverb, but they're likely to get an undertow of cello or an unexpected twist to the chord progression. And while Ms. Case sings like a honky-tonk sweetheart, she's lavishing her emotion on lines like "It's not for you to know, but for you to weep and wonder/ when the death of your civilization precedes you."
 
 Memories interweave with fantasies, observations with fragments of narrative. For every clear-cut song about troubled love, like "Hold On, Hold On" or "That Teenage Feeling," there are two with far more elusive imagery. At first, the songs can seem remote and arty, but gradually they start to add up; they're filled with a sense of loss and a hope for transformation. It's still an album more for the head than the heartstrings, but Ms. Case isn't keeping her distance. Just the opposite; she's unveiling what haunts her. JON PARELES
