Will you get your dumb fucking dog out of your avatar?
Ah, shit, wait a minute, I'm trying to be nice now. Um... I'd catch The Roots and Neko I guess.
I'm not fans of any those bands, but I think I heard a good BSS song in Half Nelson....
clap your hands say yeah are back! i just did their name!
although i'd see BSS.
should be fun either way.
CYHSY/ Delta Spirit
Delta Spirit seriously put on an amazing show
I would definately see Broken Social Scene, as well as Nada Surf.
I'd go to just about all of those except for CYHSY.
I go to all of these every year. Only in the last two years have they been this good though. It's been around for like 20 years or something. Anyway, the Roots were awesome last week. They played a lot of the same songs they did at Coachella including the Masters of War cover. Andrew Bird this thursday!!! and yeah I am most excited for broken social scene, but almost just as excited for De La Soul (Grind Date, bitches). Now that there is an official thread for this shit I will post pics from each concert as it happens.
edit: wasted if you are in town and are going to be at one of the concerts hit me up, even though I hate you and you know nothing about the difference between 2manyDJs and soulwax. :). We usually have a HUGE group of people and just party the whole night.
Wasted is pretty good people, funny kid, suffers from a dose of hubris similar to my own. He could still stand to keep his voice down more frequently though. When are you gonna be back in LA, Waste? And why did you have to fail me so hard on the medication I so desperately need?
Also, does your friend want any more cid?
Broken Social Scene put on one of the best concerts I've ever been to, see them.
see delta spirit, and have your life be changed
I really want to see BSS, at this point I don't care who is on stage.
Andrew Bird last night was amazing. It was a newer material heavy set (like last two albums heavy) and, as usual, he did not disappoint. I tried to keep track of the songs on my cell phone, but that was a lost cause as the night moved along. Thus, no setlist. De La Soul next week!!!
HOLY FUCKING SHIT
The initial lineup to this years FREE Twilight Concert Series held annually in Salt Lake City:
Thurs July 9 : Jenny Lewis w/ Bon Iver
Thurs July 16: The Black Keys
Thurs July 23: M. Ward
Thurs July 30: Sonic Youth
This is just the initial lineup, there will be another 4 concerts added in the month of August. The events are sponsored by all the micro-breweries in Utah and have way cheap beer. Did I mention all these shows are free? My excitement cannot be contained right now.
I thought you can only get three two beer in Utah
The grocery stores sell 3.2% beer, but the micro-breweries are allowed to brew and sell 4% beer. They can brew higher percantage beer, but it has to be sold at the brewery itself or at the liquor store. Beer higher than 4% can't be sold in a convenience store or grocery store.
Wow that is awesome. Who knew there was something good about Salt Lake City? Have fun Kreutz.
It's the same way here as far as gas stations and grocery stores
So are you saying the strongest they can legally brew is 4%?
All of the cheap beers (i.e. Budweiser, Miller, etc) are sold at 3.2% in grocery stores. Micro-brews are sold in grocery stores at 4%. Micro-brews that exceed 4% must be sold at the brewery itself or at the state liquor store.
This is the best thing to ever happen in the history of things happening. Again, these concerts are are free and they are moving to a new, bigger venue this year.
July 8 -- Modest Mouse/Avi Buffalo
July 15 -- Girl Talk
July 22 -- Beirut
July 29 -- New Pornographers/The Dodos
Aug. 5 -- Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings/Jamie Lidell
Aug. 12 -- TBA

So excited for this. It seems like they outdo themselves each year. Is it true that Neko Case will be with the New Pornographers?
I have no idea about Neko Case, but I hope she's there. Pioneer Park will be an interesting venue for these shows. I bet it will ba a lot better than Gallivan. Fuck that place.

For free? Screw you SLC!!
Los Angeles needs something this cool. Our Santa Monica summer concert series is short of funds this year and never gets bands anywhere near as big as SLC's lineup. What the hell?
Please. Like there's anything else to do (since it's summer and you can't ski then). Give SLC a break.
