Looks like I won't be making it tonight's show, which means I'm out 50 bucks.
Some AJJ fan I talked to in the smoking patio was excited to be seeing them in his hometown. "I've seen them 3 times, but always in Phoenix, never in Tempe."
Beach House tonight!!! I should be at the Crescent a little before 7:30pm.
The singer for AJJ said they were excited to be playing the Marquee for the first time, but I swear they opened for Gaslight Anthem a while back. Maybe I missed something with my earplugs in.

The singer for AJJ played an acoustic set before Gaslight came back out for their encore the last time they played the Marquee back in 2010. That's probably what you're thinking of.
4/9 - Sleigh Bells (Crescent Ballroom); 4/11-13 - Coachella Weekend 1; 4/15 - Neutral Milk Hotel (Crescent Ballroom); 4/17 - Lorde (Comerica Theatre); 4/21 - CHVRCHES (Marquee Theatre); 5/10 - Morrissey (LA Sports Arena);8/1-3 - Lollapalooza
Oh, yeah. That's it. I liked his line about how he could leave for Portland or New York, but he'd rather try to make the place he was from better during the SB1070 debate.
Is anybody from Phoenix going to W2?
If I didn't sell my Postal Service floor ticket to my buddy I would have been at the meetup.
Fresh off his "JUICY AUSTRALIA TOUR"
Not sure what time doors are but I wouldn't expect them to go on before 9:00, especially with YACHT as the opener. How far are you from the venue?
Dylan: I'm very tempted to go to weekend 2, at least partially. Figured if I left at 4 tomorrow, I could get in with enough time to catch Grinderman & HTDA, catch some good stuff Saturday, and light out Sunday night after Nick Cave. But I don't have a pass and I don't feel like spending another few hundred dollars, especially considering how few sets I saw are being considered for my annual "best of the year" list.
the postal service show was fantastic! they closed with my three favourite songs natural anthem, then a break, then for the encore they opened with the dream of evan and chan and finished with brand new colony. so wonderful. the light show was cool too. ben seemed to be rocking out which was kinda funny to me. jenny was adorable as always. had a wonderful time. also nice to meet nylar
So wavves were great last night. Played a lot of songs from their new album and king of the beach. Crowd was really energetic even for the opener FIDLAR, although that might be because half the crowd were youngsters. All in all, it was a good time.
Anyone going to Boris tonight at Crescent?
Prydz playing at bigsurf Saturday.
I'll be there
Prydz has a 2.5 hour set. Nice
Free show just need to RSVP
Big Gigantic & Griz @ Comerica May 16th
