So, both my wife and I are passionate music fans with slightly different favorites. We both like a lot of the same music but our A lists and B lists are different and then there is the rare "what the fuck are they thinking, do I even know this person, music choices" These lead to the dreaded wife / girlfriend conflict.
Here are mine
Dum Dum Girls vs Title Fight - In either case the next act is Jaguar Ma, which we both want to see most of and if we go to Dum Dum girls late its likely I'm missing title fight, which would suck.
Bastile vs Kate Nash (or frankly anything else, including getting locked in a bathroom with a badger) - While I presume this will make people question if I actually have a set of balls, I love Kate Nash, Loved the first two records, like the new record. Its a guilty pleasure I guess. Bastile literally makes me want to cut my eye balls out with a grapefruit spoon. They are a boy band wrapped in an indie wrapped and girls each this shit up... if i hear that "but when you close your eyes..." shit one more time...
Broken Bells vs Bonobo / Woodkid - I like Broken bells. Solid B list act for me. However Bonobo and Woodkid have be super excited, particularly if Woodkid does anything close the the youtube videos with all the theatrics.
The cult vs Hot Since 82, Caravan Palace, The knife - Again, I presume this conflict someone questions my masculinity as the Cult is a historic rock band and I believe they are playing the Electric album on this tour. However Hot Since 82 is one of 3 DJ sets I'd actually consider leaving the fields to go to the club for, Caravan Palace looks like a great live experience and The Knife looks like an art experience in itself and I'm intrigued.
Oddly little, our lists are damn near the same, other than
she wants to see Cage the Elephant and I would rather light my ball hair on fire and have a troop of flamenco dancers stamp it out.
She wants to see muse and catch some skrillex and I want to see Nas and file for divorce for her wanting to see skrillex
We havent both gone through yet, but I have a sinking feeling shes going to choose something to conflict with Laurent Garnier...
I have tried suggesting we go catch what we want and sync up after but she starts to do the jewelry pout when I suggest such a thing
