Ga vs seated, Rick.
I have to give it up to Jimmy Fallon this month: Pulp, Refused and now Tom Waits
NY gig finally? Crossing my fingers...
"TOM WAITS is heading to NYC this month to perform on late night television. It remains a mystery as to what gems the iconoclast will chose to perform on those stages...but he will be talking with the hosts as well as playing songs for the very first time live from his latest, Bad As Me, "the best-reviewed major album of 2011," according to metacritic.com."
He plays Letterman on April 24 & Fallon on April 25
Surprised that nobody wrote anything about the Bear In Heaven show the other night. Saw them last night up here and am totally confused. Is this the same band? When did the singer start vamping so much. I couldn't stop laughing with his Donny Osmond antics. The music still sounds great (and, boy, their drummer is just amazing), but I can't for the life of me understand why the singer has taken on this new persona (is that what happens when someone cuts off their beard?).
The Magnetic Fields were fantastic in Boston on Saturday. In honor of Passover they did their setlist backwards. I believe it was the almost the same (if not exactly the same) setlist cutter posted, just reversed. Though the encore was still at the end. Claudia seemed to be a little out of it, sick or something, but maybe the main effect was less bitter tension on stage.
The Berklee Performance Center sounds wonderful.
I rather liked hearing DeVotchKa acoustic as an opener; it kept the violin/accordion clear and easy to hear.

What terribly TERRIBLY misguided venues for both Fiona Apple and the Dirty Projectors to play!!! Really? A GA STANDING venue with SKETCHY SOUND AT BEST for fucking Fiona Apple?!? Disney Hall. One or two nights at the Orpheum. One or two nights at the Wiltern with the seated floor layout. Any of those options would have been so much more appealing than the fucking Palladium.
And I know word doesn't necessarily get to the band, but doesn't the management of the Dirty Projectors remember what happened last time they played the Wiltern? Where even after giving tickets away it wasn't even half full? And that was at or near the height of their popularity. I'll be looking for a ticket on Goldstar the week after it goes onsale, for sure.
I'm pretty sure there is a lot more to it my big bear, most of these venue decisions have more to do with availability and agreements between bands and promoters than anything. Also, regarding Dirty Projectors... They do have a pretty hyped up follow up release due shortly, I would not have expected them to play anything smaller than the Fonda.
