While everyone else  was seeing Weezer's Pinkerton show last night, I went to see The Antlers.
What a great show!  A lot of the live versions of these songs are so much better than the album versions.  So good!
Oh, and they actually LIKE playing the songs they came to play (unlike Weezer).

The new album has really grown on me lately.

I never really remember this thread, but I just came from a Ryan Adams concert and it was great. The dude's a bit of a douche, but he's also funny as hell, and when a guy can change so quickly from songs about the pain of love to an improv about nose boogers, or Jesus, or cougars, he has to be good, right? Great show, really liked it.

A couple of weeks back I also saw Sufjan Stevens, and it seemed to me like the closest I've been to a religious experience these past few years. It was such a long, yet magnificent concert, with great visuals on stage and, of course, great music. Listening to the epic Impossible Soul or Chicago live is a wonderful experience. I'll try and remember to check this thread more regularly.

Holy shit, this hasn't been updated since 2011?  Has no one been seeing any shows?

I'm going to see FKA Twigs in November.  That should be troublingly sensual.

Saw Modest Mouse back in May or so.  They are taking FOREVER to get their new album out.  Kinda ridiculous.  Show was decent, but I'd seen them three times or so previously, and the set they played wasn't quite my favorite and the audio was kind of bad (could barely hear vocals).  Skipped going to Spoon even though they have a really good new album out.  May see the New Pornographers in the next month or so when they come around.

RUBY YACHT show at The Airliner last night.

Holy shit... After a set form DJ Nobody during doortime, JPEGMAFIA opened (one of my favorite producers and lyricists across any genre) the support, followed up by easy-listening beach jam band BÜR GÜR. I thought they were fun, not my bag though.

Next up was Kenny Segal, the fucking wizard. He made love to an entire rack of stickered SP101 and 404s. Orgasmic music as always from Kenny S. SB the Moor traded his usual rap persona for an electric guitar-only set. Twas cathartic! You could tell he was just having a good time playing with feedback while stoned.

Then the man we were all there to see, milo. milo played mostly tracks from his latest LP 'Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!' but he also brought out guest stars Open Mike Eagle and Busdriver to do some oldies. Watching Busdriver freestyle while milo's eyes twinkled ... Legendary...

Not now but in October I will see Mogwai twice, Mew and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

I hope they don't suck.
