A note on the Beach House El Rey show for those that missed out:
"TWO TICKET LIMIT, WILL CALL ONLY. *NO TICKET TRANSFERS WILL BE PERMITTED."
I know none of you give any fucks, but Say Anything had the best crowd of any the 100+ concerts I've been to. They took the band to a level I doubt they've ever been to before.
I'll say this, theyve probably been there, way before you even knew who they were.
Ive been listening to and seeing them since Is A Real Boy came out. I can't imagine their Baseball days were huge for them like that but I'll have to ask Tessa. Max being sober now and in a better place mentally has definitely changed the band.
O wait, you don't actually give a fuck you pompous ass. I'm ecstatic that we are both awake at this hour to have such an exchange. It's already made my day.
I'm not a big fan of their new albums but I see that they're still playing Belt and Admit It, so that's kinda tempting.
Yeah 9 out of 20 songs being Is/Was a real boy and the early EPs is pretty damn good for them just putting out their 4th album. Admit it>Admit it Again was a pretty awesome way to end a show.
I can't figure which ticketing system is shittier, Front Gate tickets that Coachella uses or Brown Paper tickets that the AV club uses.
I guess it boils down to, free or cheap or costly, all ticketing systems suck.

Seeing Bassnectar tonight. If he's on his game, I may go fucking nuts.
I was able to get into Transmission LA last night from the standby "GA" line. Arrived around 7:45 and got in the museum about 50 minutes later.
Dips All Day Everyday.
Yeah I think sometime during the 3rd album recording/tour he got off anti-depressents and went clean. Since he got married he's even been pretty open about his new found religious life which I guess has helped him most. You can hear a lot of those themes on the 4th record. It's great to see the change in his live performances. I remember he use to last out at fans that heckled him and was very standoffish on stage.
i've had tix to more than 1 say anything show that was cancelled cause he couldn't pull it together. glad he is healthy and happy now
A show with the Roots, Gary Clark Jr, Bobby Womack? seems like a great a great way to spend a day. How is that festival?
