I'll never forget Gordon's :nono expression and your "you've got to be kidding me what the fuck were you thinking" look. fortunately i took enough vitamins and vegetables to put a third world country on a health kick and was still feeling good later on.

you know....it would be a good chance for Massive Attack to be able to perform "Saturday Comes Slow" from the new album, if they were at Coachella at the same time as Damon.

i really doubt that song will be played more than once or twice since it is pretty unlikely that Damon would be able to be in the "same place at the same time" as Massive Attack...

So with this new rumor floating around, that they may indeed play. I am thinking Thom Yorke into Massive Attack into Gorillaz. That would pretty much be the best finale to the weekend ever.

No no no. Massive Attack would have to be added to Saturday because Sunday is already WAY TOO STACKED. Or even Friday. I'm still bewildered as to how I'm going to get through Sunday without conflicts between Gorillaz, Thom Yorke, and Orbital.

I totally agree. There are already way too many conflicts on Fri and Sun. But you gotta admit, that would be pretty fucking cool.

FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FRIDAY AFTER 6PM

alright, my girlfriend amy & i are meeting at macayos on friday unless i hear of something better. she is taking the light rail from work and should get in after 6pm, so i plan on being there after 6pm. i will either meet her at the restaurant or the station depending on how long it takes her to get there. anyone who wants to join in is welcome. we will leave and walk across the bridge to the marquee depending on how late bassnectar goes on. i hate being trapped inside the marquee too early.

the nice thing about macayos is it's at the north end of mill so you can park for free most likely and walk across the bridge, close to the light rail station, has indoor, bar & patio areas to accomodate smokers & drinkers, there is almost never a wait for a table, no one ever rushes you out the door & it's easy to add to your party and there are chips & salsa to munch on if you don't want to eat heavy.

macayos depot cantina (http://www.depotcantina.com/) is located on ash & 3rd street, right where the rail line curves. you can park at macayos or in a spot or in the lot on the east side of ash by where the bash on ash used to be.

if you can't make it, we'll just meet up with you inside :)

amyzzz
02-10-2010, 08:58 AM
Thank you, Ivy. I have to take some time to get ready and drop my kids off at my sister's in Chandler, so I might not make it there until after 8, but that sounds like a good plan.

02-10-2010, 10:08 AM
no, because it's a retarded analogy in this case. would i rather see the very first perfomance of a new, high-tech & progressive stage set-up of a band i've never seen and that will probably never tour to arizona that are putting out a new album this year and will also have their collaborating band playing earlier int he day, or would i rather see a solo artist who put out one solo album 4 years ago and who has been touring solo and will continue to tour solo for awhile?

don't get me wrong, i'd love to see thom yorke. but if there's a conflict, i'm going to go for the once-in-a-lifetime performance over a solo set we've (the general public) probably seen before. i may eat my words if there is a conflict and yorke pulls out a bunch of crazy, rare radiohead remixes or something, but i'm all about the show. and i know gorillaz are going to put on a damn fine show.

if it was orbital vs. thom yorke, or orbital vs. gorillaz, your analogy would fit.

M Sparks

In the Vegas analogy... Thom Yorke would be Rita Rudner, Gorillaz would be a brand new Cirque show in a theatre that only holds 20 people.

If you already have 'qualifiying coverage', then by law (HIPAA) the coverage at the new job must become effective the day you start.

If you don't, then there probably aren't any. However, there are short-term products available to fill those gaps. google 'short term major medical'.

My wife left her old job the day before Thanksgiving, and started her new one a week later. No insurance for 2 months. I guess full coverage Blue Cross doesn't "qualify."

TomAz
02-11-2010, 10:15 AM
My mistake. The HIPAA provision I was thinking of applies to pre-existing condition exclusion periods, not waiting periods. Waiting periods remain perfectly legal.

However, there are options. COBRA the old insurance, or STMM.

your health doesn't depend on your employer. your health depends on genetics, lifestyle choices, environment, and luck.

No, actually that makes sense. We just had the one massive surgery claim last year, other than that, we've barely needed it in 10 years, just a couple of ER/clinic visits. So we gambled and didn't get it. If I was still ill, I would have shelled out the COBRA funds.

(Sorry for the Smiths reference Tom, it wasn't intentional.)

chairmenmeow47
02-11-2010, 10:42 AM
oh how fun, let's argue semantics. fine then, maintaining my health does depend on my employer as the care i can receive is either dependent on them or me being independently wealthy. people should not have to make decisions about where they are going to work based on whether or not they will be able to get health care. of course how much money you make is a factor in what kind of care you will receive, but it's silly that we have to think about health care coverage when we choose a job. they should be two seperate things entirely.

Alligator Bogaloo

I misspoke this morning when I said there were two openers for St. Vincent, I didn't realize at the time that Wildbirds & Peacedrums were one band.

mountmccabe
02-11-2010, 10:47 PM
They were quite good; I wish I saw more than 3 songs. Though maybe the steel drum would've grated on me further. The sound from the drum kit was quite nice, though.

St Vincent sounded quite good. The band was actually a big plus this time, providing lots of color and texture (one guy played sax, flute and keys, another bass and clarinet, another violin and guitar.)

This is the setlist.

The Strangers
Save Me From What I Want
Laughing With A Mouth of Blood
Actor Out of Work
Jesus Saves, I Spend
Just the Same But Brand New
The Bed
(solo song, see discussion below)
Black Rainbow
Marrow
The Party
[encore break of ~2 minutes]
Paris Is Burning (solo)
The Apocalypse Song

The first song she played by herself had a befuddling introduction. I mean, she has covered the song plenty in the past but I still hadn't the slightest clue until she started strumming. First she started talking about Ice Cube's "It Was A Good Day." She talked of how she loved that song and that while she wasn't going to get into the details right now, we should listen to the song and see that it really was a good one. Many people got excited, thinking she was about to cover "It Was A Good Day," but, sadly, that was not to happen. Instead, she said that she tried to think of what was the old chamber folk equivalent... and then started into "These Days" - the Jackson Browne song (that Nico recorded and St Vincent herself has recorded) - which I mean, really. It's a lovely song and it was very nice to see her up there by herself and I'm happy to've seen it again but I don't get the "It Was A Good Day" thing at all. The best I could do was the following, overly tortured mess: "It Was A Good Day" is a song of reflection, of simple pleasures in a rough life. Relishing the fact that no one you knew died that day and that you didn't have to brandish your automatic weapon belies a melancholy underlying state of affairs. Now, to take all that, and translate it and transform it from a 90s rap idiom to a old chamber folk idiom you're going to move from pensive to morose. The swagger and wistfulness of "It Was A Good Day" converts to the sad attempt at strength of "These Days." I don't think I buy it, but whatever.


It was good to see you, Micah, and I'm glad you made it on time, Mark!

She always goes to this SCA event every year in February and is usually gone on the 14th, but this year she'll be back. My theory is that anyone that would organize a huge SCA event would never have a boy/girlfriend and that they schedule the event around Valentines on purpose.

Parking is free at Macayos and around Casey Moores (although it's in a neighborhood, so pay attention to where you park).

You could always hop on the light rail across the street from Macayos (next door to my building); it'll drop you off right by the Marquee. However, if you get out of the show late, you would have to take a cab or get a ride back to Macayos because you won't be able to take the light rail back over there.

St. Vincent at Rhythm Room
By Mike Escoto in Concert Review
Fri., Feb. 12 2010 @ 10:02AM

Reviewers are supposed to be objective. By that standard, perhaps I'm not the best person to write about Thursday night's St. Vincent show at the Rhythm Room. So, before you read on, in the interest of full disclosure, I'll be honest with you: I've been a huge fan of Austin-based singer-songwriter Annie Clark for a long time. Actually, I pretty much think everything she does is brilliant. Honestly, she could have read The Great Gatsby from cover to cover last night and I still would have given her a standing ovation. So take what I'm about to say with that caveat.

Fortunately for everyone else at the sold-out Rhythm Room last night there was no Fitzgerald reading -- just a fantastic live performance that captivated everyone in attendance.

After taking the stage shortly after opening band Wildbirds & Peacedrums finished with their set, Annie Clark and her backing band played a nice mix of songs from her albums Marry Me and her most recent release Actor.

Something that has always impressed me about Annie Clark's live performances is just how much her songs grab the audience. With a song like "Marrow" she can get the hippest of hipsters to rock out along with the music and then follow it up with the song "The Party" where the entire audience is completely transfixed on her and the music she is playing.

My favorite moment from the show came when Clark teased the audience that she would perform a cover of Ice Cube's classic song "It Was a Good Day." Sadly, Annie Clark covering Ice Cube would not happen on this night, but would be, in my opinion, epic. Instead, we got a very nice cover of the song "These Days" by Nico, which Clark dubbed as the folksy equivalent of "It Was a Good Day."

One of the truly great things about going to a St. Vincent concert is how much better the songs from her albums are in a live setting. Thanks to her backing band - Daniel Hart (guitarist/violinist), Bill Flyn (bassist, clarinetist), Evan Smith (flute, clarinet, sax) and Anthony LaMarca (drums) - Clark has been able to improve upon the arrangements of the songs she played last night. It really is a joy to hear some of your favorite songs in a live setting but it's so much better when a musician takes a song you already love and makes it that much better.

St. Vincent's performance last night was amazing and unforgettable and I can't wait to see her again. But, then again, what else would you expect an admitted fanboy to say?

Set List:
"The Strangers"
"Save Me From What I Want"
"Laughing With A Mouth Of Blood"
"Actor Out Of Work"
"Jesus Saves, I Spend"
"Just The Same But Brand New"
"The Bed"
"These Days"(Nico Cover)
"Black Rainbow"
"Marrow"
"The Party"

Encore:
"Paris Is Burning"
"Your Lips Are Red"

Critics Notebook:

Last Night: Wildbirds & Peacedrum and St. Vincent at the Rhythm Room

Better Than: Just about anything.

Personal Bias: Like I said, I'm a huge St. Vincent fan. I love everything she's ever done and think she's the sexiest woman alive when she plays guitar.

Random Detail: Annie Clark dropped out of Berklee College of Music to be the guitarist of the Polyphonic Spree.

Further Listening: I was pleasantly surprised by opening act Wildbirds & Peacedrums, a group that I wasn't really familiar with until last night. I'm planning on giving them a listen later today.

Micah, how do you feel about the Bonnaroo lineup? You have been missing from that thread. I was very close to joining you. Now I won't be.

Ah.. Bonnaroo 2010. I decided that since I haven't been before I wanted to go this year no matter what so I bought a presale ticket early. As far as the lineup goes, I don't think it's as bad as a lot people think it is. Looking back at their past linups they've always had a mix of jam band, indie, bluegrass, oldies, electronic, & world.

Overall this years line is pretty much on par with things they've had in the past. Certainly they've opened up the headliner spots with different bands than they've been known for in the past, but how many years in a row can you have Widespread, Trey, or The Dead headline. I like that it's a very different fest than Coachella and will be a totally different experience since I've never been. As far as the undercard, I can pick out at least 20 to 30 bands I'd like to check out while I'm there.

Some of those include: Stevie Wonder, KOL, Lips, Tenacious D, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Jeff Beck, LCD SS, Phoenix, Dead Weather, The Black Keys, She & Him, Japandroids, Mumford & Sons, The XX, They Might Be Giants, The Dodos, The Avett Bros., Dave Rawlings Machine, Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Rangers, Jimmy Cliff, Calexico, Norah Jones, Bassnectar, Deadmau5, Daryll Hall & Chromeo, Mayer Hawthorne, & Medeski, Martin & Wood.

Also with the late night sets, comedy tent, 24 hr cinema tent, and shakedown st. I'm sure I'll have enough things to keep me entertained the whole weekend. If they add more bands that would be cool but I'm not worried about it.

On a side note the World Cup is starting in June and the US will have a match against England on June 12th, the Saturday of Roo. I'm sure they'll be showing the match in their cinema tent, so that should be crazy and fun to watch that match with a bunch of Rooers.

My buddy said they have an ESPN tent and will be broadcasting the games live from the World Cup.

Great to finally meet Jen, Ivy, Dylan, & Matt last night. My Phoenix Thread Trading Card collection is nearly complete...I just need to keep an eye out for a Downingthief, a Deniestheday, and of course the elusive TomAZ, but that's like getting a Babe Ruth rookie card.

Went to a pretty cool monthly dance party called Obscura at Rips Ales & Cocktails last night. The djs weren't anything special, but it was packed, great drink specials, totally unpretentious, Hot Chip and Massive Attack album giveaways, tickets for shows given away as prizes, and they were donating the $5 cover to the Red Cross. Totally fun. It's held the second Sat of the month and I would definitely go back. Packed dance floor all night.
