The place was packed with them.. Didn't you say you were going to the show, D$? Did you not make it?

Yeah, that was sweet! During the encore, when it was just the singer and guitar player on stage, I think...

Type in your address/zip in the top right corner to find out who is representing your District (http://azredistricting.org/mapping/default2.asp?tname=Interim.2009.Legislative.Map&service=ircmaps&Layer4=on&Layer1=on&action=zoomin&ActiveLayer=16)

i know we're probably past Phoenix talk, but i just now got my computer and internet connection going at my new place and had a comment.

that was a great show, but why is it that the singer can sing in English no problem but when he is just talking you can hardly understand a word he's saying? i always thought that was weird when someone could sing more clearly than they speak. (ozzy as another example)

anyways....continue with the gun talk.

(TEXT OF BILL BEGINS ON NEXT PAGE)

Fingers crossed for BofA, Loca.

[shameless plug] An old friend of mine is doing some kind of radio/video webcast show called "Locals Only: Phoenix". It starts on the 21st. I'm not sure of the exact format, but it looks like maybe it will be a local morning news show format without the morning or the news. They are looking for local musicians and local businesses to be featured. I'm not sure if the businesses have to pay for sponsorship or what. It's not a podcast, going to be live and all tied in to viewers on Twitter & Facebook. I am not vouching for it's quality, just helping a friend.

locachica73
02-04-2010, 08:53 AM
:) thanks Marc. I need all the good thoughts/finger crosses I can get tomorrow at 9:30 am.

The recruiter who set up the interview sent me an email with some "helpful hints" for the phone interview. One of them was to make sure I smiled while answering the questions, because a smile can be heard over the phone. I laughed because the only time I have ever heard that was the other day when on the phone with Dylan and he asked if I was high because he could hear me smiling. Probably not a good idea to get high before my phone interview though.

chairmenmeow47
02-04-2010, 08:57 AM
probably not, but it's true. a lot of our phone counselors have mirrors at their desk to remind them to smile.

I got stuck on the 51, it was completely stopped. Finally realized why when a cute brown dog walked up in between the cars to say hi. I tried to get him in my car to save him but he ran. Now I am sitting here all sad hoping he didn't get hit. :(

Amy, when I was down there it wasn't too crowded, other than the closed roads and finding parking it was fine. I don't really care for crowds either but it has a good vibe. And you worry too much about what others think of you. Enjoy yourself and if people don't like it tell them to fuck off.

chairmenmeow47
02-05-2010, 09:40 AM
i love just walking around in phoenix cause it's so rare to get to do that. plus, i'm on the lookout for a piece of art for my mantle so this is perfect. otherwise, i like to go sometimes just to see what people are trying to hock, even if i usually can't buy anything. and sometimes i have dj friends playing various events down there so it makes it worthwhile for me. it's not super exciting or anything, but it's fun & i usually end up doing something fun after the artwork ends.

But it's full of hipsters and crowds. Exactly the things you cite for being reluctant to go to FF.

locachica73
02-05-2010, 10:07 AM
Sometimes the experience outweighs the fears. I wouldn't go to a music festival for years because I have a similar fear of crowds. But finally got talked into it when Prince got added. Now I am so glad I did, the crowds never really bother me at coachella because everyone is so relaxed. But put me in a crowded bar or mall where I can't reach the door without bumping into 30 people and I will have a panic attack.

mountmccabe
02-05-2010, 10:09 AM
So, really, we just need Prince (or Amy's equivalent) to play First Friday.

Once she gets down there and realizes it isn't that bad maybe she will become a regular.

M Sparks
02-05-2010, 10:16 AM
I do miss First Friday in Flagstaff...in the summer, you would see everyone you know wandering downtown. They don't have a street fair or anything, just the galleries stay open late and it's an excuse to go downtown and see everyone. And then, they have a pretty good electro night at one of the bars afterward.

amyzzz
02-05-2010, 10:21 AM
I don't really have a problem with crowds. That's more J's thing. I like crowds, as long as I'm not expected to talk to anyone.

Also, hmm, if I make it down earlyish - 6 to 6:30, I guess - too it might make sense to Carlys; the food/beer is good. If I'm later - 7 or 7:30 - that won't be as good of an option. I'm sure we can figure something out.

For the one, maybe two, metal heads in this thread:

Mastodon are gearing up for an April/May headlining run with Between The Buried And Me, Baroness and Valient Thorr as support. Initial dates for the trek run as follows:

April 24th Burlington, VT – Higher Ground
April 26th Greensburg, PA – Palace Theater
May 03rd Albuquerque, NM – Sunshine Theater
May 04th Tucson, AZ – Rialto Theatre
May 15th Omaha, NE – Sokol Auditorium

The tour is expected to be officially announced shortly.

Hopefully this comes to Phoenix/Tempe

you know....it would be a good chance for Massive Attack to be able to perform "Saturday Comes Slow" from the new album, if they were at Coachella at the same time as Damon.

i really doubt that song will be played more than once or twice since it is pretty unlikely that Damon would be able to be in the "same place at the same time" as Massive Attack...

So with this new rumor floating around, that they may indeed play. I am thinking Thom Yorke into Massive Attack into Gorillaz. That would pretty much be the best finale to the weekend ever.

FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FRIDAY AFTER 6PM

alright, my girlfriend amy & i are meeting at macayos on friday unless i hear of something better. she is taking the light rail from work and should get in after 6pm, so i plan on being there after 6pm. i will either meet her at the restaurant or the station depending on how long it takes her to get there. anyone who wants to join in is welcome. we will leave and walk across the bridge to the marquee depending on how late bassnectar goes on. i hate being trapped inside the marquee too early.

the nice thing about macayos is it's at the north end of mill so you can park for free most likely and walk across the bridge, close to the light rail station, has indoor, bar & patio areas to accomodate smokers & drinkers, there is almost never a wait for a table, no one ever rushes you out the door & it's easy to add to your party and there are chips & salsa to munch on if you don't want to eat heavy.

macayos depot cantina (http://www.depotcantina.com/) is located on ash & 3rd street, right where the rail line curves. you can park at macayos or in a spot or in the lot on the east side of ash by where the bash on ash used to be.

if you can't make it, we'll just meet up with you inside :)

no, because it's a retarded analogy in this case. would i rather see the very first perfomance of a new, high-tech & progressive stage set-up of a band i've never seen and that will probably never tour to arizona that are putting out a new album this year and will also have their collaborating band playing earlier int he day, or would i rather see a solo artist who put out one solo album 4 years ago and who has been touring solo and will continue to tour solo for awhile?

don't get me wrong, i'd love to see thom yorke. but if there's a conflict, i'm going to go for the once-in-a-lifetime performance over a solo set we've (the general public) probably seen before. i may eat my words if there is a conflict and yorke pulls out a bunch of crazy, rare radiohead remixes or something, but i'm all about the show. and i know gorillaz are going to put on a damn fine show.

if it was orbital vs. thom yorke, or orbital vs. gorillaz, your analogy would fit.

I remember years ago when I still went dancing at clubs alone, I told Jacob that I had a crush on this girl there, and it pissed him off, but now he'd probably be more intrigued about it. So he used to be jealous about that, but not anymore. Not that I've ever kissed a girl anyway.

i am not missing the new gorillaz virtual reality stage set-up for anything. i have a feeling anyone who misses it will feel like pants when he went to see she wants revenge instead of daft punk :p

Pants would prefer to not be used as a point of reference in this matter. Harumph.

Selective love. Not Unconditional love, Amy. There is a difference. :p

Rain report: I got a few sprinkles at Oak & Scottsdale.

Two amazing, rare acts I have never seen before against Thom Yorke, who I've seen. Ugh. And there's a potential Thom Yorke tour coming up too.

time is running out for us....
