You better be in town Ghostboy! I still can't believe they aren't doing seating for this show...that is fairly lame. Most of the other dates tend to be in actual theatres which the Palladium very much is not. Oh well, it's time to start listening to the Waits discography in anticipation.

If anyone's in or around Austin tomorrow night (Saturday 5/17) my band will be playing at this bar on sixth street. Do it.

Alright John I have taken your advice and given Mr. Waits my $102. Now that I've bought the tickets I'm super pumped and can't fucking wait for June 23rd to come! Any of my other Dallas chums bought tickets yet? Better do so soon.

You, sir... are one lucky duck. A wise decision.

Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

Tuesday we went to see Destroyer because we were going to miss him during the festival.  It also put us in the concert going mood.  Like his albums, 40% of the show was great.  Then came the festival.  It began with Fleet Foxes and Fleet Foxes were definitely one of the real treasures of the whole weekend (they would play again when The National showed up late).  If you haven't seen pictures of the Gorge (why would have you have really) and you are going to read this post you should take a peek and see what an amazing view was just behind all these bands, by the way.  But so it began with Fleet Foxes who were amazing.  Then I think we went and watched some UCB for about an hour.  There were mic problems that made things awkward and painful (me being sensitive).  We saw Beirut.  I'm not a fan.  Then we took a break and bought t-shirts and whatnot until The National, catching the tail end of Ozomatli's set and a bit of Joshua Morrison's because he was by the merch table.  The National didn't show and Fleet Foxes played again.  They were amazing.  The National not showing until later kind of fucked up the day's schedule, for us.  The New Pornographers were next and they were a real fulfillment of expectations for me but Stephanie thought they didn't sound as good as on their cds.  We skipped M.I.A. (her decision...) to watch some ASSSSCAT.  The mic problems had been fixed and everyone was really funny.  Then we saw The National who had shown up, and they were okay for three or four songs.  We went to watch some Modest Mouse which turned out to be a good idea because everyone was going bonkers and dancing and they played that Float On song and literally (perhaps) all the people there, all these thousands of people, were dancing.  That was a great feeling.  We climbed the hill during the song, surrounded by dancing people, to see The Breeders.  The Breeders were one of my favorite live acts.  The night ended with R.E.M. - who totally blew Stephanie and I away.  Now we're on this minor R.E.M. kick.  The next day we went we decided to stand up front all day to have close spots for Flaming Lips.  First was Dyme Def.  We ate our food during their set.  Yeasayer was the first good band of the day but they seemed kind of out of place outdoors, and following them was Matt Costa who is a professional musician for reasons I can't ascertain.  But when The Hives played next everyone was reeled back into the festival because of their limitless energy.  Great performers The Hives are.  All that energy was on standstill during Built to Spill.  Built to Spill is a great band but a perfect example of a disadvantage of a music festival lineup is Built to Spill following The Hives.  When I thought about Built to Spill's set later, like driving home, is when I really appreciated it for what it was.  It was okay.  Rodrigo Y Gabriela brought a ton of energy as well, which led into Flight Of The Conchords, who are seriously funny.  Then an entirely different direction with The Mars Volta (the set actually started crazy and built my enthusiasm but that died off).  The Flaming Lips played last and they brought with them a memorable, intimate and exciting show.  They also had women dance naked.
Raven haired Linda and her school mate Linnea are studying after school, when their desires take over and they kiss and strip off their clothes. They take turns fingering and licking one another's trimmed pussies on the desks, then fuck each other to intense orgasms with colorful vibrators.

i saw them in st petersburg, florida last week. it was fucking awesome. the energy at the show was so great, and seeing them perform the songs live -- with the animation projected on a screen behind the band -- was amazing and hilarious, like the show itself. brendon small is an entity.

It was a lot of fun but House Of Blues needed to make that shit LOUD! It was cute to see a number of the metal fans there that didn't seem to really get any of the irony of the show but there was also this great communal vibe since many different people were there for many different reasons but everyone got what they came for. I did see room for improvement in actually involving the audience in what could essentially be a live episode. All in all I had a great time...I think I was the only person drinking Grey Goose and tonic at that show.

I'd rather you be dead than consider not opening a restaurant"

i did. saw the flaming lips live for the first time in a amusement park in copenhagen called 'tivoli'. unfortunately the volume of the show had to be restricted due to the place is outdoors and the neighbors would be angry or something. anyways, it was a fantastic show.

next up, two mogwai shows in november.
