You guys act like douchebags for the weirdest fucking reasons
You really should, as soon as possible. I've basically had them on repeat since I first listened to Ben Hur last night. It's been a while since I've immediately loved a band this much.
I'm in love. I put this on because of a tenuous recommendation that it was like a more aggressive slint. Aggressive is a pretty good word for it. Completely fucking incredible are a...
I'm looking for a weekend pass for FYF. Paying face. Please PM me if you have an extra
I didn't think life could get much better than Nick Cave performing Stagger Lee, but then they closed the set with Papa Won't Leave You Henry. Jesus Christ. That's one of the best shows I've seen...
Nick Cave tonight! I've been itching for a chance to catch a full set since that incredible coachella show last year. Very, very excited
Alright, well, in the interest of not having that weird shit be the last post, I'm still looking for a ticket. I'll pay face. I'll even buy you a beer at the festival. Two beers. Some Spicy Pie. ...
Send it to me. I'll send you money in return. It'll be great.
Anyone here selling an extra wristband? Please PM me.
So, there's gonna be a Scott Walker / Sun O))) collaborative album out later this year. That might be incredible.
I think I ditched Blur's coachella set about 5 or 6 songs in to catch Grinderman. I don't regret it, because Grinderman fucking ruled, but I do wish I could catch a full set from them someday. Not...
A few quick thoughts before heading home, might post more once I get back
-Overall, I loved the festival. Bands seemed very happy to be playing, as near as I could see, and every set I caught...
Just landed in Barcelona this morning! Did a bit of walking around and picked up our wristbands this afternoon. I'm so excited!! Been dreaming of making it to this festival for years now.. Gonna...
Damnit. Was hoping for a Michigan Owen Pallett date.
Well, to be fair, they're Morrissey fans, so they probably always look like that.
This is the third album they've made since reuniting and not one of them have come anywhere close to a bad listen. At this point I'm not sure Swans are even capable of making bad music. Went and...
Wedding Present just got added, per the Primavera FB page! Five more bands being added, if I'm understanding this right.
Thanks a ton for this! I can't wait to keep digging through his discography.
Can anyone do Roxy Music? They have quite a few albums too, and I think I've only heard Country Life. Even that...
Please post some good Prince stuff. I've only really listened to Purple Rain, 1999, Dirty Mind, and the Self Titled, and have no idea where to go next.
That Power Out -> Rebellion transition is the best goddamn thing. Every single time.
That Beck set was so much better than I expected it to be. Wow.
I'm still dumbfounded that a fight broke out early on at Neil Young last night, but he handled the situation really well. In fact, he was way more engaging and on his toes with the crowd than I'd...
I listened to Blood Visions by Jay Reatard for the first time today - and then I listened to it about six more times in a row. I've been meaning to listen to him for a while, and now I'm kicking...
'This song is pretty apt for Detroit, it's called 'keep the car running'' was pretty great too. Good show, but I still don't understand what I'm missing about Sprawl 2. Only lul in the set for me.
Had to opt for the $168 Neil Young seats because I couldn't pull anything cheaper, but just couldn't justify not attending this show. I'll be at night two!
I really hope that Neil Young pre-sale didn't remove all the cheap seat options from the general onsale. I can't miss that.
Orch Center Row S for Spiritualized. Fuck yes.
Finally got an email a couple hours ago, pulled one in the terrace row M for Man Machine. View looks good enough from the Disney concert hall's website, so yay!
What's a guy gotta do to catch a spare ticket for the Man Machine show?
No email here. Bummer.
and, for good measure, Win's response
fuck off, spooks.
God damnit, missed the nick cave presale while I was setting up an account on the website. When's the general onsale for these?
Wish I could have pulled a ticket for one of those El Rey shows, but I did just pull one for the Mayan theatre. Never been there, how's it compare to the El Rey?
I have a balcony ticket for Yo la Tengo at the Fonda on Thursday that I won't be able to use because I'm going out of town. If anyone's interested in it, send me a message, you can have it.
Seriously, fuck the finishes for those last two matches. They literally couldn't have been more predictable if they'd tried.
So, what are the odds that Grizzly Bear show doesn't sell out by next friday? I'd love to go but I'm flat broke 'till then
I don't really think it's a fair complaint to say criticize the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for not playing older material. They did Pin and Tick, and Down Boy's a bit of a rarity too. The setlist for the show...
I am very patiently awaiting My Bloody Valentine North American tour dates. Actually, I'd rather not have them at coachella. Stick them in a small enclosed venue and let them bleed my ears dry.
02-08 - Cincinnati, OH - The Taft Ballroom #$
02-09 - Cleveland, OH - The Grog Shop #$
02-10 - Rochester, NY - Water Street Music Hall #$
02-11 - Hamden, CT - The Space #$...
The Glasshouse's facebook just put up an event listing for Why? on March 7th. Yay.
Joanna and Wilco were both great tonight, and, as usual for a KCRW sponsored show, were heavily marred, for me at least, by the very talkative people all around.
Bridges And Balloons
Have One On Me
I'm trying to resolve a Games For Windows login issue through their support chat right now, and the person helping me told me that they can't give out things like account details (in a support chat...
Yeah so, that setlist rules. October can not come soon enough.
Fiona Apple really doesn't seem like dancable music to me, but whatever. I'm more concerned that she's not playing enough of the new album on this tour. when she really should be. This thing is...
I'll have my mix in the mail within the next four days, recipient, and I'll send you some extra stuff with it as a way of saying, 'sorry for being a procrastinating idiot.'
In the meantime, I...
Just bought a ticket, thanks for the heads up!
Car troubles are preventing me from getting out there tonight, but I hope everyone else has a great time.
I couldn't sleep all night and when I finally did, my dream was of myself battling the throes of sleep paralysis
Today will suck.
