    Holy SHIT, they were good (First Aid Kit). HOLY SHIT. They played a Fleet Foxes song that they could hardly remember the words to, but it was still luminous, and they were so enthusiastic and humble. They played a Bob Dylan song that I knew only because the White Stripes covered it ("One More Cup of Coffee?"). They played several new songs, including one with the "f" word in it that earned them a parental advisory sticker on their new album (coming out in "11 days") as the blond, keyboard-playing sister jokingly but proudly told us. Oh man, I love when sisters harmonize. Such a wonderful thing to behold. They even sang a song without mics, and their voices rang through the club, lovely and proud. I love this band.

    Best scalped ticket I bought EVER.

    Amy's exactly right. That was one fucking amazing show. If you thought their Coachella set was good, this was light years beyond that. They've grown from being a wistful pair of songbirds two a rocking 4-piece with stage charisma like crazy. I was looking forward to last night's show but HOLY SHIT pretty much nails it. I feel like I witnessed something magical.

    edit: they also covered Simon & Garfunkel's "America"

    another edit: The new songs sounded fucking great.

    Yeah I couldn't have said it better myself. The set list, their stage presence, that unplugged song they played, everything was perfect. They played a longer set than I thought they would. I also enjoyed Willie Mason's set too.

    I also enjoyed Willie Mason! Great guitar picking and a very pleasant voice -- really pretty falsetto when he hit the high notes.

    Willie really did kill it. I was thoroughly impressed having never heard his material before last night. Also, after replaying some of the memorable songs from last night, I think that may be one of the best shows I've seen this year. I really do hope First Aid Kit gets booked to play in 2015, preferably a set that isn't at 2 in the afternoon like their first time around.

    I would say it was the best show this year but for the incomparable Janelle MonŠe back in January. Tough act to follow. and both acts have great sense of style and drama in addition to an over abundance of musical talent.

    Huh, I was pretty sure the presale was last week. We got our tickets already. I believe "violet" was the code, but Jen would be the authority being that she made the purchase.

    Also, long time, no see, Mark. How've you been? Last I recall seeing you was at Presets when you were with a girl who was *really* enjoying her drugs. Or at least I presume that's what the cause of her behavior was.

    I'm sure you are right. I've been working a lot more so I haven't been paying attention to the boards or show announcements. It's nice to finally see a decent price on a good show and be able to get good seats.

    I'm still with that girl. She dances like that all the time sober too.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I have not been there but I plan on going out there soon. They just had Mikkeller there to brew a collaboration beer. They've been getting a lot of recognition and awards, and I heard it is always packed now that they received best new brewery on Rate Beer. Everyone I know who has been loved the beer.

    I came to post this since Cactus Jack's is right up the street from our house. Since it's right up the street I am getting excited thinking about the potential but the place is not that great so I wonder how it will work out...

    Seems like a terrible location for a music venue. They are going to lose a lot of their demo by moving so far off campus.



    This is happening on Friday at the Crescent, I will be there.

    Cover the Crescent to benefit the Lupus Foundation of Southern Arizona:
    Minibosses / Sweetbleeders / Roar / Treasure Mammal performing RADIOHEAD's OK Computer
    Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra performing PORTISHEAD's Dummy
    There is Danger performing WILCO's Yankee Foxtrot Hotel

    What the heck is that? I will need to research Belle & Sebastian because I'm not sure when they've been here last.

    answer: it's north of Van Buren on between Central and First Avenues. I saw bands perform there at that Viva Phx festival a couple months ago. Really nice.

    Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare is coming to Scottsdale. Tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. as well. Rob Zombie will be performing opening night on Friday September 19th. GA is $45, VIP1 for $65 gets you a T-shirt and priority entrance to the haunted houses. VIP2 for $100 gets you the shirt, immediate access, VIP bar and VIP viewing area for the show. I haven't seen Rob Zombie live in over 10 years so this will be fun!

    Got our tickets to Belle & Sebastian.

    BTW, is anyone here planning to go to the Summer Nationals Tour (with the Offspring, Bad Religion, and Pennywise) but still in need of a ticket? I excitedly bought one during the presale, only realizing afterward that I'll actually be in another country that day (Montreal for Arcade Fire/Spoon). I paid $36 after fees and current face value to purchase on luckymanonline is $42, so I'm just looking to recoup what I spent. It's an e-ticket so I'd prefer to sell it to somebody who I'm acquainted with (even if such acquaintance is solely comprised of being another Coachella message board member) so that there isn't any suspicion that I'm going to do something nefarious like sell the ticket multiple times. I'll give it a week here before putting it up on Facebook. Let me know if you're interested.

    Boys Noize was great. He played some of the Handbraekes stuff he did with Mr. Oizo which was my favorite part of his set. Coachella should definitely make Handbraekes happen in 2015. That being said, I do hate the all ages setup at the Monarch and will not going to another all ages show there unless someone epic is playing. I also wish they would enforce some sort of loose dress-code, because bandanas, backpacks and "candy" all take away from the club atmosphere(that sounds so douchey).
