We were right there with you, propping up the bar. I liked the girl in Ben Stillers oscar outfit. Halfway through a song she stopped her conversation, jumped up and down excitedly and screamed "I love this song". Shame you missed half of it you vaccuous tart.
 
 On the whole I didn't find them that annoying although the 7 foot blond always seemed to manage to stand in front of me.

Belle and Sebastian put on one of the best shows I've ever seen.  It absolutely blew me away.  The setlist was almost perfect, although I would have liked to hear at least something from Arab Strap, and more from Catastrophe Waitress.  Luckily I found a ride from the club, so I didn't need to leave early and metro.  I really hope they keep their word on that summer show.  
 I thought the New Pornos were very good as well, even without Kat's vocals.  They kept me very entertained.

I pfff at that review.  NP put on a good show.  The other band members carried the weight of the missing female vocals quite well.

Anyone get their mitts on the  Middle Distance Runner EP the band was handing out after the B&S show?  I'm really enamored with them at the moment and can't wait to hear their full CD and see them live.  The bands lead singer used to be in a Pittsburgh band called Black Tie Review.  Based on the EP they get 7.9 on the kosm-o-meter.

For once, I've had an incredibly busy Friday. Probably much to the pleasure of all of those on this board.

After attending J. Luc's Freedom Rock chats one would think that I would remember the most obvious DC song for B&S to cover that being "Afternoon Delight" by the Starland Vocal Band...

Would have been better than Fugazi, but I can't think of that song and its "surprisingly inappropriate lyrics" without thinking of Arrested Development!

Screw Lollapalooza and all the other festivals. I'm going to go see Belle and Sebastian at the Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic!
