That sounds awful
Moderat last night...know it's been said but damn, hope they get them at Coachella/at night this year, that was a fun show last night. Loved this woman in her mid-late 40's going absolutely nuts in the back of the pit area (she had to be on something) - and it was Mordoh-approved (you know you're at a good show if those two show up). Can't stand Club Nokia, though.
Moderat definitely was one of the best this year. Fingers crossed for Coachella.
For your health

theres a secret presale on axs now... password is nightmare.
The Regeneration tour at The Greek tonight was a ton of fun. Would have loved more form InSoc, but was happy to get Running, Think and Peace & Love, Inc. Howard Jones is still an amazing performer. And Andy Bell, well... I would have preferred more of his solo stuff (I really enjoyed Electric Blue as an album), but as far as him playing primarily Erasure stuff, I couldn't be too mad. I imagine if Human League were still on the bill it would have been primarily his solo stuff. Still... I was a little shocked by the lack of I Love To Hate You. Otherwise, his set was a ton of fun.
Tickets purchased for Danny Elfman! What a perfect way to spend Halloween. Hopefully there will be that haunted house down the street from Staples again.
EDIT: It will be and here is the link.
I went to the Regeneration show too. Got lucky scoring $10 tickets outside. I was surprised by how much I really enjoyed Howard Jones. Not that I was expecting to hate him, I think his hits are just fine, but I never bought any of his records growing up. At his age he sings his hits perfectly. He did a double version of Things Can Only Get Better that was a nice close to his show. His chrome keytar was pretty fancy.
Andy Bell was fun too, and was the main reason we went. I was really into Erasure as a teen so it was great to hear Drama, Stop and Chorus.
All in all, a pretty fantastic evening for $10.

Have to say though... rewatching the video from the last time I saw InSoc.. (Video = It Is Useless to Resist Us from the 2008 Trocadero show in Philly. Shitty Openers that night, but InSoc were fucking fantastic at that show) So much better. Kurt's voice seemed a bit off tonight. And I will forgive him on Burning Bridges, since that wasn't his track originally.If they were going to play something off of Synthesizer, they should have either done "Seeds of Pain", since he sang on that, or I like the Way you Werk it. Either would have been better than Burning Bridges.
no discussion about how Chappelle had a meltdown on tour last night?
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
Chappelle didn't have a melt down. He didn't perform for hecklers 2 nights ago then killed in Pittsburgh last night.
I have a huge dislike for comedy performed in large venues.So for say this oddball comedy tour or Comedy Supreme or whatever that Tencidous D comedy festival is call I dont see going well with the inexperience comedy performance goer.Just way too many drunks,people who just dont know how to shut up or how to not put their in the bit.YET I want to learn more about and may attend Just for Laughs in Montrčal in the future even though I may run into the same problems.

Instead of letting the man perform the crowd decided to be entitled shit heads and shout jokes that are a decade old. Good on Chappelle.
