The National are an amazing band and simply stunning live. Really excited that they'll have an album out this year too.
Tycho was great last night. Hearing it in a small club with great sound versus the FYF set he played which was still amazing was a real treat. New visuals were cool, and the new songs were even better. Talked to Scott after the show and we will have a new album from them this year! 2013 is starting off nicely for live shows!
On a side note, I was talking to a guy after the show that works at the troub I think and apparently said Freddie Gibbs and madlib will be playing a show there!

Foster the People - April 8 @ Pomona
YES!!! Seeing these guys at the Neptune will be incredible. A big step up from last year's dive bar experience, too. Are they moving up in the world? Then again, we saw them a few years ago headline the Commodore Ballroom, so maybe it's just been a rollercoaster for them venuesizewise.

I think the sound city players shows are kinda bs. I mean obviously it'd be hard to get Macca, but they couldn't get reznor or homme?
