What??

My Bloody Valentine is now listed as playing in Richmond VA in a 1500 person venue about 7 minutes from my apartment.

The venue, The National, is billing this as their only mid-atlantic performance of 2009.

What did I do to deserve something this gracious?

I'm having a heart attack.

and I dont know what else to say.

holy fucking shit.

Lucky. At least I'll get to see them at APW. Indoors huh? You better start thinking about how you want to handle your ears during You Made Me Realise.

I'm literally speechless right now.

This is like one of those musical fantasies you dream about. You hopelessly wonder "man, it'd be so awesome if MBV just played at The National as their only east coast date of the year, that'd be so awesome. but it'll never happen, they'll just play in NYC. if i'm lucky, I can see them in DC next year or something."

...and then it happens.

what the fuck. holy shit.

I saw A Place To Bury Strangers in small club a couple of weeks ago. I am now familiar with the beauty of earplugs.

Boris isnt louder, its just that you didnt get your ass kicked by MBV indoors...

true. One of my co workers saw Boris at a venue in Austin and saw MBV here at the Denver fillmore....she said it was no contest...MBV louder hands down...

Earplugs, save your ears, I took mine out during YMMR at the concourse they don't mess around, I was close front and center of Kevin, they can do permeant damage to your ears...

I was at the Aaragon show in Chicago last September and I can easily say Boris is way louder so is Wolves In The Throne Room

Thurs July 30th. The show is billed as their only mid-atlantic date - so now DC show. Maybe a Philly show, but thats pushing it.

I'm still recovering from the news I just read.

I'm still trying to comprehend this.

Like, I have pinched myself about 30 times to see if I was dreaming, and I've yet to snap back to another reality, so I'd say its looking good so far.

No joke. An outdoor festival was one thing but indoors a week later I regretted not having earplugs. But cheers to your good fortune. That's going to be sweet.

good fortune doesn't even begin to describe this. this is like winning the lottery. its so good that it doesnt make sense.

HEY - I in no way started the "MBV is loud" topic. I merely said they were coming to my home. :)

Matt, I know that wasn't the intention of this thread. You weren't included in that. By the way, congrats! I know if MBV played a venue that small here in Albuquerque I would poop.

Heh I'll bet! A Place To Bury Strangers... still my biggest piss off from the last Coachella. I hated missing them.

Back on the MBV topic, my right ear still occasionally 'reminds' me what happened that Sunday night. Do NOT listen to people telling you to check them out sans earplugs!


/and yea I had earplugs in that night

Oh man, was going to bump this for Barb since she's moving there, but I guess she's moving after this. Well, bumping anyway because it's this week!

You have no idea how long this week is for me.

I am contemplating putting myself to sleep until Thursday afternoon at 4PM.

also, no word on the opener yet. There was a rumor going around that it was going to be Dinosaur Jr, but that seems to have faded away.
