God damnit, a good friend of mine is having a housewarming party the night of the Mae Shi Smell show. bmack, convince me I'd be making a poor choice if I skip this show.
Go to the show and then head to the housewarming party straight after. You'll be plenty warm and sweaty. They'll love it.
Wow, Verizon Wireless is pretty big! If he still had A$AP and Kendrick opening, it would be alright. I think rap shows are kind of odd at big amiptheaters like that.
Last time I saw them I lost 2 pounds, mostly in sweat, exclusively from their set. You won't hear a single song off Hlllyh, but you WILL see one of the best performances ever. You will witness a band that truly loves performing, and you will witness a crowd that truly loves the band they're watching. It's an incredible time, and the energy there is nigh unmatchable. That having been said, they said the Pehrspace show was supposed to be a one-off, and they're doing this. If that says anything to me, its that they all realized that they realized they're best together, and they're gonna try to make it work again.
That said, DO NOT FUCKING MISS IT. Unlike Pehrspace, they're going to be on a stage and will not have the guitar cables ripped out every other song. It'll be a more cohesive set, and that's pretty much the home of the Mae Shi. They are one of the best live bands around, and it's a blessing to be able to see them again. I'm only missing it because I'll be out of state.
Perfume Genius were excellent tonight, everything he/they played sounded so beautiful. The sound was perfect, everything was crystal-clear. It was my first time at the Bootleg Theater, what a great little place to see a show.
Anyone going to Speak!/Vince Staples tomorrow?

Yeah, and since this friend moved I haven't seen him hardly at all.
That is one of my very favorite albums and I mean, I am glad I was not out until past midnight last night but ugh.
Who will be very special surprise guests
On Wednesday, May 2nd, 7 p.m., Three Rooms Press presents the NYC book launch for Mike Watt: On and Off Bass at Le Poisson Rouge. The event will feature live performances by Mike Watt + J Mascis + Murph, with opening acts Appomattox and Dead Trend, plus a reading & signing by Mike Watt along with additional very special surprise guests. The new book will be available for purchase at the event.
Mike Watt + J Mascis + Murph
Mike Watt got his musical start thumping the bass with legendary San Pedro punk trio, The Minutemen in 1980 and over the years, he's toured with his own groups, including Dos, fIREHOSE, The Black Gang, The Secondmen, The Missingmen, and others, and he has worked bass as a sideman for Porno for Pyros, J Mascis and the Fog, as well as punk godfather Iggy Pop and The Stooges. J Mascis and Emmett Jefferson 'Patrick' Murphy (aka Murph) were founding members of Dinosaur Jr., with Mascis listed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time
Appomattox is a high-energy Brooklyn trio that Deli Mag cited on its best of NYC 2011 list, noting Appomattox is “one of the best live bands in town…A welcome change from the usually passive temperament of contemporary rock, this band has found a way to stand out amongst Brooklyn’s crowded backdrop by turning the form on its head and back to its roots as a countercultural force for change.
Dead Trend is known for stripping down punk to its bare essentials; their debut EP “Bad Policy” crams six songs into as many minutes and is a welcome howl against the new conservatism and a defense of three-chord classics
the NYC Launch of Mike Watt: On and Off Bass + very special guests
In Mike Watt: On and Off Bass, tour diaries are distilled to their econo essence, and are juxtaposed with his photography from his home bass in San Pedro. Watt’s photos are exquisite and his writing is insightful, funny, and brutally honest, as he explores topics like John Coltrane, drunk female fans, his first performance with Iggy Pop, and lots more.
anyone else caught the Lou Barlow / Sentridoh in-store at Origami the other day? he talked about moving to his parents house, and making the next Dinosaur Jr. album with J at his attic... he also played a couple of requests at the end including On Fire, which he forgot the beginning of the second verse... quite funny.. here's some footage.

I don't know why of Montreal was getting such a bad rap...their show at the Fillmore last night was great. Set list was very diverse and the visuals/sound was spot on in there. Maybe it was due to the show being at the Fillmore, but they were just as good as other times I've seen them.
Of course, Deerhoof were great. They need to do a headline set in that room soon.
Wow Jack White went fast...
Never been locked out of a show like that. Both nights. Sadness Still trying...
Floor for night two. Ticketmaster app put tickets on sale about 10 seconds faster than online
Based on last night's performance I have determined that Of Montreal hate Los Angeles.
