Didn't have enough energy to make it to the Friday or Sunday shows this weekend but I did make it out for the Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth show at Columbia City Theater on Saturday. First off, that venue is rad. If you haven't been there you should find a show you want to see and go. It is an historic building that has had Jimi and Etta James grace it's stage.
BOTSC were incredible. There are only two other shows this year that I have been to that have achieved this level of awesomeness. Those were SUMAC and Caribou. BOTSC should be witnessed by all of you (especially those that like heavy music). Next month they have some shows lined up and they implied that they have some big news in the near future regarding more touring:
You should head down to Calgary for Sled Island. They're playing the main stage on the Saturday with Drive Like Jehu, Viet Cong and Ex Hex.
Also - Gaytheist at Palomino on June 18th. Finally my chance to see them!
Dude, I wish I could go to Sled Island. That is in my top two favorite festival lineups so far this year (Levitation is the other). Not in the cards for me though. Gaytheist makes me smile all the time. You are going to have so much fun. It is a music show with a comedy show between songs (Jason, the guitarist/vocalist is hilarious). I think I am going to spin some Gaytheist today now that I think about it. HAPPY FRIDAY Y'ALL!
Just found out that Gaytheist is playing at The Narwhal tonight on Capital Hill. WISH I COULD GO. They will be slinging their new EP with Baby Gurl in cassette form. It is tour edition only. If anybody goes and wants to snag an extra one I wouldn't be mad
I guess I've thrown all of the fucks out of the window this summer, because I just splurged on a full Decibel Festival pass for the first time. With Sasquatch and Coachella out of the way, my summer is still looking pretty god damn insane...
