    It will be hard to skip Viva PHX with that lineup at that price, I still think it will be difficult to move from venue to venue to see everything I'm interested in though.

    also...

    I've really wanted to check out The Western and this is the perfect opportunity, William Tyler is excellent.

    Saw Augustines, Hospitality, & My Goodness on sonofhal's recommendation last night. My Goodness were probably the best opening band we've ever seen at the Crescent. They've got bright prospects for success. Was hoping to buy their CD but never carry much cash and they couldn't take card payments. Got a sticker & bottle opener from their label's promotions team, though, so didn't come away empty handed. They're a two-man, guitar-and-drums rock band in the vein of White Stripes and Black Keys, and as such, I would expect to see them at Coachella next year.

    I couldn't understand why SiriusXMU was trying to make Hospitality happen last year (or 2012, whenever their first album was released). That "Friends of Friends" song is fine but not good enough to warrant being played every fucking time I get in my car. Now they've got a new album and have apparently a lot of buzz and it still baffles me. They are just so goddamn bland, the kind of anonymous throwaway pop that TomAZ gets so upset about. Just no passion or stage presence, made all the more apparent by coming out after My Goodness. The 3 guys in the band seem like they are probably all very nice and easy to get along with, but something about the singer just gave me the sense that she's probably a bitch. Maybe it's just because I feel like the quality of her voice should relegate her to being a backup singer rather than fronting a band. Whatever the case, she yawned between the 3rd and 4th song and that was our cue to go sit outside.

    Augustines were fantastic. We got up right against the stage. Hadn't even heard them prior to yesterday afternoon so I felt a little weird about being that close but they perform with lots of energy and have tremendous songs. Their lead singer seems like he might be a twat but he writes good music and you can tell that he appreciates being on stage and having an audience watching his band. I can see them blowing up like Mumford & Sons -- the singer kind of resembles Marcus Mumford and a lot of their songs are very anthemic. We remarked afterwards that we were surprised they haven't played Coachella yet but apparently they did play under the name We Are Augustines. Just looked it up & they were playing against We Were Promised Jetpacks, and I've gotta say, that WWPJ set was so fucking good, I'd still make that decision, but I won't be surprised to see Augustines playing later in the day on the main stage at Coachella or even sub-headlining other festivals within the next few years.

    True, but it's close enough to classify as being what I'm doing to celebrate my birthday.

    BTW, since you're "here" right now, check out My Goodness and Augustines. I think you may like both.

    Strong Beer Festival is the kickoff to AZ Beer Week every year. There is another fest, AmeriCAN, that sounds cool and focuses on all canned craft beer but that is held in May sometime.

    I'm still on the fence about Viva. We'll see, it's my birthday weekend and I don't want to blow my load early. Saturday night is the big night.

    Oh, and Murs.

    I might skip murs and/or blackalicious depending on how crowded it starts to get in the crescent. I would hate to miss out on the band I'd most like to see because of capacity issues.
