    so talk about it here AND there...I wanted to focus attention on Mew tomorrow night at the Fonda...instead of everyone talking about a bunch of shows at once. People can look at the subject and decide if they want to contribute to this discussion, or if they'd rather talk about it in the broader "upcoming shows" thread.

    Put it in the upcoming shows thread, its easier. If I did this for each show I went to, no other threads would be on the front page. Less clutter.

    But everyone must discuss all concerts in the same thread! If you want to see if anyone else is going, just spend a half hour reading thousands of irrelevant posts in hope of finding the appropriate one, if it exists!

    But seriously, major LA-area shows usually warrant their own thread, while shows in other markets or more obscure acts should go in one big thread.

    That'd be such a full time undertaking that I'd probably miss half the shows. Anyone goin to Lightning Bolt, incidentally?

    major LA-area shows
    i'm sorry but mew at the fonda is hardly a major la-area show. we're not talking radiohead at the greek here.

    rockstar, it's more for etiquette than anything. that is such a thing that exists on message boards.

    Tessa, why didn't you say hi to me at the show? Anyway, the music was good, the visuals were good, but the band seemed bored and unenergetic. maybe they have jet lag due to their tour.

    I saw Mew the other night at the Fillmore.
    It was an absolute trainwreck.
    Boy they sucked.

    I would have rather listened to Yablo drone on about his portable dishwasher for an entire evening


    Are you pushing it out, you ******?

    the opening band(oh no, oh my) sucked so much.
    they got boring really fast. and they do sound like
    modest mouse, bloc party, and flogging mollys.
    they sound TOO much like those bands if you ask me.
    i hate derivate music. be original for fucks sake.

    they straight out stole "float on"!!! wow.

    I thought Mew was awesome...Oh No, Oh My kinda blew but whatever. I talked to the merch people about why Mew was not playing Coachella and they said that they were supposed to play Coachella but didn't have enough money to keep the tour going until the end of April and keep the band in California. Basically, someone in charge of their tour fucked up and they're missing out on playing Coachella, which would have definetly helped make them in the U.S.

    What I meant is their style of music would fit in with similar bands in one of the Coachella tents, or maybe the outdoor stage.

    Coachella would have been even better this year if Mew was there.

    I thought Bakersfield is full of honky tonks. When former Mayor Richard Riordan called Bakersfield boring on a radio show, he was forced to spend a day there.

    No way, Bakersfield is cool as shit. They have their own Henry Fonda theatre where a bunch of awesome bands play unannounced shows on their off-nights. I don't like Mew, but I heard they tore it up in Bakersfield.
