    I know, I'm a dick. I saw you, Cutter, Drinkey, and Kylie (w/her setlist) during/after the show; had friends in tow.

    I didn't know you lived here, Obzen. Therefore, I was super weirded out that you were aware that I had a set list. You should have said hi!

    Errors was good. I have never heard their material before and will be checking their stuff out.

    Mogwai is one of my favorite bands of all time-- so it was a fucking pleasure to see them live. The set list was everything I dreamed of and the songs live were beyond my wildest expectations. It was incredible to feel music like that. At certain points, it felt like my bones were rattling. Mogwai Fears Satan is a murderous track. I knew what was coming and it still slammed me in the face. Helicon 1 was also a huge highlight.

    I thought the crowd was fantastic as far as LA crowds go and the venue felt like I was in an Indiana Jones movie. It was fucking cool and the sound was really great. Snagging a set list at the end was just the cherry on top of the concert of my dreams.

    This was a pivotal point in my concert going career.

    Like everyone else, I loved the show. It was probably my least favorite setlist out of the six times I've seen them, but even the new songs sounded glorious. "I Know You Are But What Am I?" was a welcome surprise, and obviously "Mogwai Fear Satan" is near the pinnacle of live music altogether.

    I was impressed with the Mayan. I expected a poor audio experience since I got to the show late and was stuck back by the bar (I had to shush people on more than one occasion), but I suppose Mogwai are forceful enough to overcome that.

    I was not surprised at all to make the connection between Mogwai and Dungeons and Dragons in San Francisco.

    I was going to go, but unfortunately life happened so LA is my one and only.

    Speaking of which, does Belly Up do transfers for will call? Because I will do a free transfer of my two tickets to whomever wants them.

    I don't know about the transfer policy, but I know somebody who would take the tickets if you can't find anybody else.



    I'm so bummed these shows were in the middle of the week. Awesome that they shouted out the thread.

    If they do the leg work and check into it for me, they can have them. I don't want to deal with the details.

    So yeah... as has been covered, last night was awesome. As expected, the new songs sounded much better live than on the album. Such an intense show throughout and then topped off with finally seeing MFS... couldn't ask for much more. 4th time seeing them last night, that song was overdue.

    Glad I got a poster... I need to start hanging them though.

    Great to see some of you again and meet others!

    Excited for round 2 tonight at the Belly Up.
