    the 2006 Mogwai crowd was everyone who didn't want to see Madonna.

    I understand the point about Coachella having a different crowd, but I don't understand why Mogwai would be more prone to it.

    If Mogwai is your friend then i have also a best friend because i think they truly deserve to play an LA Club show and John Cummings is really great person.

    I am hoping they play one of the GV shows in between Coachella weekends and their traditional Belly Up show in SD.

    So everyone... thoughts on the new album? Interested in hearing everyone's opinions.

    For me, the album is a little more on the level with Mr. Beast (aka: a few standouts, but a little on the drab side) than their other albums. I definitely like it but I don't think it will be in heavy rotation in the future. I do fucking love Repelish though, weird spoken word and all. That will be played quite a bit.

    I have a feeling the album will manage to be pretty awesome live..

    There was some discussion of it in the 2014 albums thread.

    I like it better than Mr Beast. But not much time has passed yet.

    The new album isn't grabbing me as much as I wish it would. I feel like it isn't as dynamic as their better work; all the songs are moving at the same steady, slow energy. I guess it's too much for me as an album, because I think I could enjoy each song by itself. I have a ticket to see them in April, here in El Paso, so I plan on hearing the album more. It might end up being a grower.

    the whisky sold out in about 90 minutes. given that I wasn't going to wake up at 2 am to buy it, I didn't get an order in.

    also this lead me to an interesting read on the difference between whisky and whiskey.

    At ATP 2010 they held a whisky tasting, which is where I was first educated on the difference in terminology. I feel like learning with study aids is the best way to really make the information stick in that instance. Delicious, delicious study aids.

    I like it more that Mr. Beast and the Hawk, but not as much as Hardcore. I really liked Mr. Beast when it first came out, but I have mellowed on it a bit. Hardcore has really stuck with me since it came out. Not sure how this one will pan out over time.

    Bummed I couldn't make it down to SD tonight. I love seeing Mogwai at the Belly Up. Excited for a full set Thursday.

    Anyone catch them at Coachella? They had a tough time slot, so maybe that's why it seems like no one is mentioning them. I thought they were excellent. Remurdered was especially exquisite.

    Belly Up show was the show of the year (so far) for me. Incredible. Cannot describe how good it was.

    I came in after 3 songs or so and stayed till the end. Yeah the new songs sounded pretty sweet and Mogwai Fear Satan is still one of the best live songs I've heard. Did you think they could of been louder. I swear in 2006 they were louder and that was at the Outdoor Theater.

    They've toned down on their volume in the last few years.

    Can't wait for tomorrow night at the El Rey. My second time seeing Mogwai and hoping for good things.

    Also, missed Factory Floor at Coachella. It sounds like they had a lot of sound problems there, so this should be a fine double bill.

    Tomorrow night is going to be awesome - a full Mogwai set in the right state is a thing of glory. So happy to see the encore they have been doing lately, sounds awesome. Factory Floor as an opener is an added bonus.

    May have an extra ticket if anyone wants one at face less surcharges, pm if so.

    That was completely insane. Best show I've seen from them yet. An oddly boozy crowd, though. I never thought I'd say that a Coachella crowd was more polite than a solo show crowd, but the crowd on Saturday night in the Mojave was much better. Regardless, ridiculously good show. One of the best bands there is.

    That was an excellent show. Really impressed by how well they execute all the dynamic changes in their songs. And yea, the quieter moments could really have done with a few less drunken bros shouting out "Mogwai!" Also, saw Majeure and Factory Floor. Neither left much of an impression on me but were both decent. It was a good night.
