Tensnake is at Los Globos this Thursday!
So just found out I can't make it to Nico Jaar tonight...
But to quell my fury, the big guy upstairs graced me with this:
DUBLAB & RVNG INTL present…
A happening to celebrate Julia Holter’s record release party for her new album Ekstasis! With live performances by Julia Holter & Mark So & visuals by Yelena Zhelezov & Rick Bahto
April 1st, 6-10pm, @Atwater Crossing
edit: oh yeah, the best part. it's free
Just emailed the promoter, no need to RSVP and the show is all-ages.
Have fun at Nicolas Jaar everybody.. I'm sick I can't make it. Fucking school... At least I get this Julia Holter show afterwards.
Didn't enjoy Nico Jaar at all. I left half an hour into his set. Part of it might be that I worked an 11 hour day and have to wake up at 6 am for another one, and part of it might be that nothing he did in those 30 minutes was reminiscent of any of his studio output I've heard, plus it seemed like he kept using the same tricks (that did nothing for me) over and over.
I hope for the rest of you that it got better.
I enjoyed it quite a bit. I liked that he wasnt just making carbon copies of his studio work and the band was putting their own touches into the material. Also, the sound tonight was great. Im sure you would even agree with that even if you didnt enjoy it.
The entire show was fantastic. I liked his album from last year, but not nearly as much as many seemed to, but the performance tonight was just great. A nice slow burn main set followed by a dance party encore. First time I've been toward the back and experienced sound that good at that venue, yeah.
Great meeting no surprises and rough steez, my apologies to rag and bone for not recognizing him at first, alcohol's a hell of a drug, hahaha.
Crowd doesnt look bored to me at all......
OOOOO that looks/sounds so good.. Thanks for the vid supre

My excitement doesn't care if this has been posted yet or not...
6/26 The Men @ The Smell = FUCK YES!!!!!!!!
I enjoyed Nic Jaar last night, at first it seemed like the audience was going to care less but people got into it. At least where I was. Loved the sax, but yeah where the fuck were the visuals that would have been awesome!
Nicolas Jaar was fantastic. A few lulls, a few missteps, but a ridiculous amount of musical peaks and huge soundscapes.
Nicolas Jaar was a lot fun last night. The sax was a really nice subtle touch and the sound was really good, especially considering how far back we were. I could definitely see why people didn't enjoy him much in SF though. The biggest issue I had with his performance is that I thought it lacked a certain momentum throughout. He ended up repeating a lot of the same effects and transitions. I felt like it really picked up during the encore though and people around us really started groovin hard. I regret not seeing him when he came to LA last time, he was doing DJ sets of his material then. I would have liked to compare both sets.
Great to meet some more boardies last night! Thanks Felicia for introducing me. I was so wiped after the show though and I had to drive so far, next time I'll stick around. At work right now and I really need a nap.
