I saw The Strokes there a few years back and it was an awful venue, I'd never go back to it.

I don't remember there being beer because I got pretty fucked up before and after the show but I do remember feeling like I was watching a show at my high school gymnasium. The sound was horrible and the people who attended it were even worse.

I am going actually. Too embarrassed to put it in my sig :D

Yes, Rimac Arena is actually an excpetionally lame venue. Basically a big basketball court. But it will be alright. There are bleachers surrounding the standing-only floor. They will probably be selling beer, I have no idea. That is all...

Should be fun considering I didn't buy my ticket. I've never seen Death Cab. Expectations are not incredibly high though...

they put on the worst set of 2008 not including MIA who i did not see.

I saw Beck at the Rimac he put on a great show but the venue is pretty bad.

saw the show last nite and it was really good surprisingly. was backstage tho, so that probably had an impact, but I thought death cab killed it. They were a heck of a lot better then in december when they played NNSN. And Ra Ra Riot are great, mostly went to see them, they r the ones that got me backstage too so i am loving them rite now.

Ever been to Bren Center in Irvine? Same thing, just think a college basketball arena. Bleacher seats, then floor.

I'm actually really looking forward to seeing DCFC again, they were great last year in SF at the Fillmore the week before Coachella. I have seen them in the Shoreline parking lot, the Warfield, the Berkeley Greek Theater and the SF Fillmore. My favorite time was at the Fillmore, hell my wife even liked their Fillmore show. It just sucks that I have to wait until July, but at least it will be at a small outdoor amphitheater.

Here is their set list from yesterday:


1. Employment Pages
2. Your Heart is an Empty Room
3. The New Year
4. We Laugh Indoors
5. Crooked Teeth
6. Photobooth
7. My Mirror Speaks
8. No Sunlight
9. Company Calls
10. Title Track
11. Grapevine Fires
12. I Will Possess Your Heart

that was the Sacramento show, right? sounds like the same type of thing, it was @ the War Memorial, first time I've been there.
The sound was kind of shitty, especially during Ra Ra Riot, but each band was amazing-4 out of 4 stars easy.
Cold War Kids canceled-but I saw them the night before @ a small venue with only 500 people which kicked ass.
Everyone should see Ra Ra Riot. they are truly amazing live-wished they had a longer set time. Almost thinking about seeing them over The Decemberists @ sasquatch, but fuck, I cant miss The Decemberists.

I do believe its true
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
But if the silence takes you
Then I hope it takes me too
So brown eyes I hold you near
Cause you’re the only song I want to hear
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

hahaha that really does look like a high school gym! i love dcfc, tomorrow will be my 12th time seeing them. i've seen them in small bars and big venues, they are always pretty good. i know they get a lot of hate but i don't really feel it is deserved...to each his own i guess!

p.s. that april 17th set list looks great, that's the one i'd want to see. but the one from last night doesn't look to bad either.

ALSO, i hope CWK cancels, i don't like them.

3. The New Year
4. We Laugh Indoors

6. Photobooth

9. Company Calls
10. Title Track

14. Title & Registration

Half gone, half of remaining decent. Bummer.

Rimac is terrible, and you will (unfortunately) be let down.


What the fuck happened to this band?

Yeah, that must be it. I am sorry you enjoy uninspiring, mediocre and trite indie pop.

Narrow Stairs rocks.

Like it literally rocks, at least some of the songs do. I enjoy that album very much so

I actually really like Narrow Stairs. I'm not very familiar with Death Cab, but I like Narrow Stairs, We Have the Facts and Transatlanticism quite a bit. I won't expect to recognize many songs this evening though.

i thought they played a good set last night. i liked that they opened with 405 and i am glad they played a rockier version of fake frowns. RIMAC wasn't as bad as people said, i have been to a lot worse. it was kind of weird that mostly everyone was sitting in stands, few people were standing and that everyone was really young, but whatever. the sound (at least for dcfc) was surprisingly better than i had hoped for, with minor glitches here and there. i was expecting to be let down majorly by the RIMAC but maybe i've just been to plenty of shitty venues so this mildly bad one didn't bother me as much.

I hope you all enjoyed it. Really.











But I know I would have hated it.

it's been really funny watching a band that I went through middle school seeing every other weekend open for bands like Modest Mouse turn into an absolute parody of themselves.

If I wanted rock n' roll I would listen to a different band. I'm not going to get all pissy with a band just because they went a different direction...I like their wussy ballads.

So do I. But only when they are good, which these ones aren't.

Also, playing with the LA Phil? This shit is out of control.

I blame the OC.

I would go to that salt lake show if death cab weren't playing and Andrew Bird was headlining.
