    That wasn't me. But if it was, I probably would have been screaming "I'll be at the Real Estate show at the Indy. If anyone wants to fight me there, come on by."

    Also, I'm glad you shed light on what happened with those two girls. We thought it was weed related this whole time. Did you actually witness the entire scene? If so, please elaborate.
    I concede both of those points to you. To be fair, "polite Englishman" translates to "timid" in America because Americans couldn't give a fuck about being polite.

    I was right in front of them, I didn't see everything first hand but I definitely saw hair being pulled and that security guard took about 2 full minutes to realize anything was happening. The people right next to them said the instigator was drunk and throwing plastic cups at people. So people threw cups back, and that's when the bitch started fighting. The reaction on stage was interesting. James completely ignored it, didn't hesitate, he was focused. The bassist and the drummer were glaring at the crowd, not because they were angry at the drunk chick, but like disappointed in everyone else for paying more attention to the fight than the music. I felt bad for that but shit I didn't want my friend's camera to get destroyed!

    I listened to all the ep's and the album again with all the shows going on, and I fall in the "don't get it" category.

    spoilertime

    Just got back from tonight's show at the Troubadour, I thought it was great. All album material, a few "new ones," and nothing from the "old EPs," besides Klavierwerke (which was probably my favorite track of the night, he was skankin' sitting on his piano bench). His encore was a cover of Joni Mitchell's "A Case Of You." He does spice a few of the tracks up for the stage as well, in particular "Limit to Your Love," where they went into a sort of dub (in the reggae sense) extended outro that sounded real nice.

    His voice sounded wonderful, as did the instrumentation. It was excellent sonically as well in my opinion, everything was mixed just right; his voice could always cut through whatever else was happening (while not being overpowering). He can definitely fill the space, sounding full and rich, be it from silence with waves of reverb, an increasingly resonant synthesizer, or a deep, soul shaking wall of bass.

    James was about three feet away from me the entire night. Despite that all of the conversations I overheard sounded like posts from hipster runoff, it was a great show.

    But that's just like, my opinion, man.

    I was going to say he was very soft spoken, but perhaps this is the case.

    Definitely want to check him out live, but not enough to drive down to LA for one of these shows. I just can't get into his releases. A night time Gobi set would be wonderful for him I'd think.

    Good show tonight. Klavierwerke, aside from being his best song to date imo, was a monster live. So so glad he's playing that live.

    Best sound I've ever heard at the Troubadour. And the audience was as polite as I've seen as well. Even back by the bar, you could hear a fucking pin drop the entire time. I was amazed.

    ^^ Thanks for the heads up JorgeC, just bought a pair.

    Last night was really great at the troubadour! Nice balance of gentle vocals with HEAVY bass. Good to finally meet up with Chris and Sasha after the show as well.

    I was real skeptical how his live show would turn out. Man, did he impress! Never have I heard the Troubadour sound system put to the test like that. It felt like the place was gonna crumble to the ground on a couple of the bass hits. just got tixs to Fonda. Can't wait.

    Don't you know that dub is just an abbreviation of dubstep? Like how people say "punk" when they refer to punk rock.

    Thought we needed a password for the presale, but I guess not! Hurah for $2.50 service fee!

    So is anyone else going to the H.F. show tonight? Or perhaps his DJ set?

    2nd night coming for sure. That first initial date on TM was the 19th, and then it changed to the 18th. Besides, why put a 3 day gap in between l.a. and sf?
