Richard Ashcroft solo acoustic in a Vancouver club in early 2000.

closed with a 7 min version of Bittersweet Symphony before smashing his beautiful guitar to pieces and waltzing off stage.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

hmm...

-DEFTONES capital ballroom 1997
club show.  first time seeing them, (i think its been 8 now), very exciting for a young high schooler.
-RADIOHEAD tibetan freedom concert 1998
super obsessed radiohead fan, to see them during the tour of my favorite album ever was an incredible experience.  michael stipe came out to sing "lucky" and thom went to sing "leave" during rems set.  opened with airbag, unbelievable.
-THE STROKES stone pony 2001
tiny tiny club show right before they got incredibly huge during their first headlining tour after the release of their album.  the show had tons of energy, (way more than they usually do), since the stage was a foot off the ground and we were sitting on it before they came out.  it was uncomforably intimate almost.
-BECK zellerbach theatre 2002
again, realy small show.  beck playing solo acoustically for like 3 hours in front of a few hundred kids.  i was a few rows away, and afterwards i got backstage passes and got to meet him.  great show.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I've seen lots of great shows, but one towers over all the rest:

PJ Harvey in Portland on the To Bring You My Love tour in 1995. Not merely "good" or "great": Sheer. Perfection.

Belle and Sebastian in Portland on September 12, 2001 is also very, very memorable. They covered "Turn, Turn, Turn." I cried. I think we all did. That probably sounds very mawkish and obvious, but then, that night, at that moment, it was anything but.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

I also saw The Doves back in like 1999 I think. You know who opened for them in a dance club full of about 100 people? The Strokes.

I'm sure I am forgetting a few others. Those stand out though.

I didn't know she was coming. I'll have to check my listings, but yeah, I'll go for sure. I'm also getting tickets to see Radiohead. They go on sale for Seattle tomorrow to the public. I'm pretty stoked to see them for the second time. GREAT venue from what I've heard. Brand new.

I saw Blur in Atlanta last night. It was definately one of the best shows I've seen. Just packed with energy and Damon charmed the audience the entire show. They covered everything from the Brit Pop classics to just about every song on the excellent new album Think Tank. Great show.

I've seen her twice.  Hands down the best rock performances by a female I've ever witnessed......
