    That blows. Belle & Sebastian hardly ever tour, though. Little Dragon plays quite frequently it seems...

    i don't know that "quite frequently" is accurate. they may just play here more often than bell & sebastian, but it's not like she's bad religion or dieselboy.

    Fair enough. I just think the odds of Belle & Sebastian coming back to PHX are quite slim compared to Little Dragon.

    You're right. I don't know that Belle & Sebastian have ever performed in Arizona, much less at a park that's never been used as a concert venue before, whereas Little Dragon have played here I think twice in the last 5 years (I feel like they were in Tucson 2009 and Phoenix 2010, but I could be wrong). Even if I didn't already have a ticket, I'd still pick B&S, it's just annoying when 2 shows that would draw a fair chunk of the same demographic are booked on the same night.

    I wasn't arguing in favor of you or anyone else choosing that show instead; I know you especially like Little Dragon a lot and haven't been able to see them for a long time, so it's a no brainer that you'd go to their show. I was just following up on Gribbz' point about the likelihood of which band would play locally again.

    It's a standing room venue a little smaller than the marquee. I really like the place, great sound and lighting.

    LIzzard...I have no idea where our seats are. I think they're in a back section. I'll try to send an update. We're going to eat dinner downtown somewhere first.

    It was fine. I had much more fun at the Coachella set; I suspect that it was because the Coachella crowd was more lively, plus the outdoor environment and the atmosphere. This was indoors, we were crammed into seats, everyone was sitting down up in the nosebleeds where we were.

    I had incredible seats, and last night may have been my favorite concert I've ever attended. I felt like he got better and better as the night went on. This was my first time seeing him, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I imagine seeing him at Coachella would have been amazing. Highlights for me were Something, For the Benefit of Mr. Kite, Eleanor Rigby, and Maybe I'm Amazed, but I loved all of it.

    Last night was my fifth time seeing Sir Paul and I'd rank it No. 2 with Coachella being No. 1. It just edges out the 2010 Glendale show pretty much because he played Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! and Hi, Hi, Hi. Mr. Kite was pretty surreal and sounded amazing. Of all the Beatles songs he could play never did I think that would be one he would choose.

    I was really happy to hear Eleanor Rigby. I basically heard all of my favorites so we left after Hey Jude and didn't stay for the encore. Our seats sucked and my back was killing me and McLovin's twin was sitting in front of us yapping and pawing at his teenage girlfriend.

    First time I caught a performance of Sir Paul was back in ’76 at the Coliseum in Cleveland. Great show, of course. Only other time was ’09 at Coachella (my first year attending) and though the long years have not, as one would expect, been entirely kind to McCartney’s voice, it was still an incredibly wonderful performance with a ton of great songs and a crowd and venue that all added up to an epic show.

    Sorry I missed him this week but I already had tix the same night for the Yes show at the Mesa Arts Center, which was itself a fantastic concert. Bit too much like being at the symphony, but the awesome music and stellar musicianship more than made up for the crowd of mostly oldsters who sat till almost the end of the nearly 3 hour performance, which included the entire Fragile and Close to the Edge albums. The old Celebrity was a better venue for them last year, and the crowd then was livelier, too.

    The kid they’ve found to replace Jon Anderson sings pretty much like Jon Anderson once could, but no longer can. Steve Howe and Chris Squire – both now in their sixties – are still about the best lead guitar/bassist combo I’ve ever heard. And Syd Arthur – 4 kids from Canterbury who played a good set at Coachella this year – were perfect openers, though the old folks mostly had no idea who they were. Nice, humble guys, had a pleasant chat at the merch table with them during the short intermission.

    Got the free Friday night Classixx with the Superhumanoids show at the Crescent coming up, and two nights later at the Crescent got tix for a set of really good local bands, including one of my very favorites, Mergence.

    There’s another free show at the Crescent on September 9th, headlined by a new dream pop outfit out of LA called Haunted Summer. Like what I’ve heard by them on soundcloud, so going to this one, too.

    A lot of other good shows at the Crescent this fall – too many for me to get to – but I do have tix for Odesza in September, who were great fun and trippy late night at the Do Lab this year WE2, and a few days later Sir Sly and Wolf Gang, and then Metronomy and later – after we’re back from LIB – Pure Bathing Culture in October, and Yelle in November. Some of these are weeknights, but even though my wife and I are both old (60) and get to our jobs pretty early each day, fuck it, we go anyway and almost always have a blast. More than worth dragging ass for a bit in the morning.

    Really should get to the Mastodon and Flying Lotus shows at the Marquee, too. Wife dislikes the venue, and isn’t a big fan of either act, so maybe I’ll just go by my lonesome.

    Was thinking of the Eric Prydz show, Friday night September 19th at the Pressroom – which is a really cool venue, with great sound and lights – but once again my wife is not a fan, and that’s not the kind of show an old fuck like me should be at alone, so likely not.

    All in all, though, a lot to look forward to in the coming months, including the first and third Friday nights each month at Club Palazzo on Central where the DJs spin old and new darkwave/industrial/goth stuff we love to dance to, minimal dance skills notwithstanding.
