Somehow, people, Know here knew about the Residents show in Portland before I did, and *I* have been hunting for confirmation on it all day every day for a week. If that's not a good reason to read the guy's blog, I don't know what is.
This post is out of character for me, but goddamn that's impressive.
So I've never checked out The Residents until today. Watched a couple live vids on youtube. The impression I got was that they are like a spooky, carnival version of Dead Can Dance. Is that a reasonable comparison or am I way off?
Titus Andronicus, Real Estate, and some other hipster bullshit in a temple in Brooklyn on New Year's because that's how things work
I can't wait to see Titus Andronicus again. I think I'm one of the few on the west coast who were into them after their first album, The Airing Of Grievances. "You met the world naked and screaming and that's how you'll leave it."
Their new album is top ten for me. I'm not a huge Civil War fan, but the lyrics on The Monitor are pretty rad. "You ain't never been no virgin, kid, you were fucked from the start."
