Neil was everything I wanted from him. Too good.
I love Neil and I too was frustrated by the super extended new songs. I like the new songs fine but when it's a 13 song set, I don't want to see 5 new songs. I think my frustration boiled with how long "Walk like a Giant" went on. And I just don't like that song, "Born in Ontario".
I am also being extra cranky because the traffic was so bad and i came from Brentwood which took forever and when I got there all the parking was full and I had to park at the Ford theater.
It was funny the person next to me said (this is a complete stranger mind you, not someone with me). I didn't know he was from Ontario off the 10 freeway.

FYI, the beer and wine they sell at Hollywood Forever is just out of a tub behind a table, it's not a real bar (obvs since it's just the waiting room of a lodge). Reason i mention is that when I was there for Divine Fits, it was only 1 girl behind the table and she was pretty overwhelmed. Be prepared for a wait.

Should I go see Dinosaur Jr tonight ($25) at a venue I don't really like, Witch Mountain & Castle ($7) tomorrow in a good venue in a town I don't really like, or drive an hour to see Jandek ($25) on Saturday at some shitty college campus? I don't have the time this week/weekend to do all 3 or even 2 of them.
Dinosaur Jr. will make the shitty venue sound good and are absolutely massive live. Jandek is a rare and intense show, but each one is completely different and it somewhat matters who the other players are. I'd definitely go with one of those two, and I'd only go with Jandek if you're fan enough to find the drive and price worth it. Intense, good show, but if you just want the better performance it'd be Dino.
The Corwood rep will be joined by Charles Gillett (electric guitar), Craig B. Mataresse (electric bass), Adam Patterson (drums, percussion), and Brian DeGayner (brass)
Hell yeah! Enjoy dude, let us know how it is. Troubadour will be an awesome venue for her.
Yessss fuck. I wish Freddie was at the show last night. His verse on Criminal is awesome... He's great live too.
Bam! I'm in for Clint Mansell. I feel a little irresponsible about buying a ticket before a couple trips but I love the MEZZ at the Orpheum way too much to pass up a good show there.
jesus christ supre you make it too easy
