    Casino Vs. Japan was a little disappointing at our show. The crowd talked the entire time, he only played for half an hour (and I missed the first 10 minutes) and just in general the vibe was all wrong. Just when I was really starting to get into it his set ended. It wasn't nearly as sunny as on record either, a bit weirder and textural.

    He only played 30 minutes at the show I saw too, and I don't think anyone in the crowd had any idea who he was or what was going on. Everyone was yapping.

    It's been a while since I've been to the Fonda... there is free parking somewhat nearby, right?

    Deerhunter was a lot of fun. they started off a bit tepid but by the fourth song they were on fire. 6 songs from the new one, they did Hazel Street and Spring Hall Convert from Cryptograms and about half of Microcastle, and they closed with Flourescent Grey. I liked the slow version quite a bit. My complaint with the whole show was that I couldn't hear Josh's bass throughout a good portion of it.

    Also the least chatty I've seen Bradford other than at the Forum opening for NIN. And the bubbles were really cool.

    Yes, the show was excellent tonight. They really should close each and every show they do with Flourescent Grey, that was amazing! I didn't have a problem so much with not being able to hear Josh, but that he couldn't have looked more bored up on stage. It's like, damn, have some fun for gosh sakes.

    I was curious as to how they were going to pull off Helicopter live, but they did it quite well. Casino vs. Japan was fantastic as well...had a good buzz from drinking two pints of Pliny the Elder next door, and his set was just perfect for that.

    Edit: Oh and they've really only been playing for around an hour? We got just over an hour and a half out of them tonight.

    Really, really great show. I wish I had more energy tonight, but it was a long weekend.

    Still. Very glad I got to go. It was nice to see some of you and great meeting a few of you for the first time.

    Ask Gabe, he parked right in front. Bastard!


    Awesome show, one of the best closing songs I have hard in a while, and just so fitting for a monday post halloween/ day of the dead.

    Fantastic evening. Ended up wasting money on parking next door because I was sick of being in the car by the time I got there, had I looked for even a minute I would have found free parking, oh well. Wish I would have went to that bar instead of trying Roscoe's while I waited, Pliny the Elder would have been much better than food haha. My cousin got some at the restaurant he works at (he is in charge of beer), but I haven't had a chance to go and I'm not sure they still have it.

    Casino vs. Japan was great. I took his advice and just listened to most of it with my eyes closed, lovely way to start the night, I really liked the last half of his set. Thought High Places were alright, I got bored by the end though and went for a cigarette. Enjoyed them more when I saw them a couple years ago. Deerhunter were wonderful yet again. Loved that version of Fluorescent Grey and that they are still doing a 10 minute or so Nothing Ever Happened. New songs sounded good. I like Desire Lines as the opener. Good to see you all, as always. Time for bed, have to get up to vote before work. Yes on 19! Goodnight.

    Second song they played, right after Desire Lines.

    And that's how Josh always looks on stage. Usually a cigarette in mouth or ear as well, and he bows after each song.

    absolutely loved the show last night. We were sitting up top and I thought it sounded fantastic. So much better than the last time I saw them in eagle rock (and I had quite enjoyed that show as well).

    Parked free in lot down the side street.. 2nd time i parked there. past ballys.

    I thought it was a fucking fantastic show - one of my favorites of the year. I'm as susceptible to acoustic neurosis as anyone (see: poor review of Arcade Fire show) but I thought the sound was glorious. They left a lot of songs out that I would like to have seen, but that performance of "Fluorescent Grey" is one of the best things I've ever seen them do.

    Also, fuckall'y'all - I had the parking spot literally right in front of the door.

    Deerhunter were good last night but I didnt think they were nearly as solid as the last few times I saw them and they seemed less energetic overall.

    Nothing Ever Happened totally slayed though...

    That reminds me of my first time seeing them. First 21+ show, day after my birthday at the Casbah. Until last night that was my favorite time seeing them. They did that wall of noise and all, it was great.

    So talk to me about Deerhunter. All y'all who are more recent fans, have you gone back and listened to any of the earlier work/what do y'all think of Cryptograms? If you don't have an almost unhealthy love for Flourescent Grey ep, why not? is Rainwater Cassette Exchange worth listening to more than a few times?
