Rolling Stone needs to do stick with what they do best, i.e. sucking off U2 and Bruce Springsteen.
An excerpt from their Halcyon Digest review in the newest issue:
:nono :nono :nonoQuote:
"Is there anyone who wants to see the sun go down?" asks singer Brandon Cox in "Memory Boy."
I really wanted to see them this tour, but Mark Lannegan & Isobell Cambell are playing a better venue and I've never seen them. Oh LCD and Hot Chip is the same night as well
i've gotta get to the Fonda show. only seen em once and that was at Street Scene...
Almost a week away, fucking stoked.
Yeah, the Fonda show is going to be so good. I'm hoping to finish my paper this week so that I can just edit next week and not worry about doing that show the night before it's due.
I peaked at the latest setlists, and Fluorescent Grey is making a comeback.
Fucking hell I hope they play it. I Don't think I've heard that song since Fuck Yeah Fest 2007.
I've seen them like 8 times, now, and I've still never heard them play it.
i've seen 'em play it once. that's great news.
I'm digging this.
"Fluorescent Grey" is my favorite Deerhunter song and they closed with it last night. They reworked it so it was kind of slow and creepy and amazing. When they break into the noisy part it was the greatest catharsis. Really fucking great show over all. Mostly stuff from the new one and Microcastle. Bradford is the oddest frontman but I think it's great that he gets to be a rock star. The new stuff sounded considerably less sleepy live and is very good. If you're a fan, get thee to your local show when they come through.
I bought my ticket last night. So excited for this.
Flourescent Grey was on the setlist for Toronto but they played "Wash Off" instead.
Is anyone here going to the show on saturday? havent gotten my ticket yet, i kinda dont wanna be totally solo
if i can't score a tic for Friday, i'll go with you (despite my dislike for Slim's...blech). have you checked to see if there are still tix?
I guess it's possible. I'm potentially going to Napa that day with the folks (if I finish writing my paper) but just for the day, so I might make it back to the bay in time to see that. I just REALLY want to catch Real Estate, since I've already got my Deerhunter ticket for LA.
Edit: I'll probably do whatever Drew does here.
last i checked there were still tix but that was last week. so no spookyfest for you then?
nah. gonna wait for a proper UW tour. 65" set + 16yo's + Cow Palace...not feeling it.
Still just getting into this album, but man, "Desire Lines" is fantastic.
yeah, so if anyone ends up having an extra for the 10/29 show at GAMH, please let me know. really wanna go now. thx.
thats fantastic!! ill take gooood care of him if you dont make it
Two more days... Fucking stoked. Who all is going to the GAMH show?
I'm gonna try and see what it looks like to scalp one maybe.
So... saw Deerhunter last night.
Have they been covering "30 Century Man" lately? Because it totally surprised me and I loved it, and I got the whole thing on video. will post soon.
whoa. whoa. whoa.
