it's a place called the backstage. It's a tiny little room behind the capitol theater that holds maybe 250 people.I haven't been to the place since high school when I saw riveting shows such as Kane Hodder, United State of Electronica, and Schoolyard Heroes (to give you an idea of how weird this is).
I haven't seen trail of dead since sasquatch 06 and Source Tags and Codes was one of my favorite albums back in high school so it's a nice surprise to have them play here
SLED ISLAND kicks off tonight!!!!! Tonnes of shows lined up for the next four days, including some late night shows starting at 1:00am!!! Work on Thursday and FRiday is going to be grim. Brief breakdown of who I'm seeing:
Tonight - Pierced Arrows (former members of Dead Moon) AWESOME! Thursday - Man Man with Seizure Salad and GOBBLE GOBBLE Friday - C'mon / Bison B.C. / Buzzcocks / The Sword / Sleep / Kurt Vile and the Violators Electric Six Saturday - Alberta Cross / The Greenhornes / Twin Shadow / The Raveonettes / Minus the Bear / The Dandy Warhols / Of Montreal / Times New Viking / Cursive
Plus a slew of local bands interspersed. Should be a great few days...followed by Black Keys next Wednesday.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
