    They updated their Windish booking page this morning to say that the US tour is in January 2011.

    Couldn't we just get one final ASMZ tour before we move on? Please? They literally have not played California since 2006. And in the meantime put out their 2 best albums...

    aSMZ are playing Mexico City on 9/30, so I can't see why they wouldn't do a West Coast tour before/after that.

    I thought a Silver Mount Zion played the Echo/Echoplex in the past two years. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure I'm not.

    Actually you could be right. I think this is true. I'm crazy...

    Anything that has any potential delay or hinder the Godspeed tour = fuck that.

    Are you thinking of the Vic Chesnutt tour where they were his backing band?

    Naw, that was last year. I could have sworn that they had done at least one show right around the time they played ATP in '08. Maybe I'm losing it though.

    I'm somewhat partial to the newer bands with the contemporary material... as long as the material is good, which it is very good... but most people have probably been able to see ASMZ by now.

    I looked it up and couldn't find anything. I'm still thinking their last west coast tour was 2006...

    I could be wrong, but last time I saw them was well after Horses in the Sky came out when they played in 2006

    Snap, y'alls right. Apparently the ATP set in '08 was their first as this new, different, non-Tralala band. I stand corrected. (And, that means I've never seen old Silver Mt. Zion, but new Silver Mt. Zion was some pretty powerful stuff. Mike and I watched their soundcheck for quite awhile before a security guard realized we didn't work with ATP.)

    On this note, I'm somewhat partial to one of the greatest bands of all time that I have never had a chance to see.

    So Gabe, I think that if (when) they play LA, you should announce very sternly and loudly that you're going to rip the throat out of anyone you catch talking during their show.

    I may hang up signs at the venue the day before.

    Then again, I'm imagining they will be loud enough that I shouldn't have to worry about this.

    I dunno...I have a some bootlegs, and on a lot of them, you can hear people talking all the time....really sucks. At least they don't stop the show like Dead Can Dance would.

    people talked a fair amount when i saw them... it was a pretty serious bummer. then again, i didn't even really know who they were... so i wasn't super bothered... they still ruled though.

    Woke up Saturday morning around 7 am, ate some mushrooms, rode my bike along the bayou, watched small birds eat dragonflys on bridge; all while listening to Godspeed You! Black Emporer for the first time.

    It was a pretty good morning.
