Hey there boards! Long time lurker first time poster.
I have two wristbands for sale at $280 each, or $550 for both, in Portland, OR! My girlfriend and her friend won tickets on 94.7 together and so now I'm the chump who has to try to recoup what I've already invested in their tickets! Lesson learned: collect $$$ up front -_-
So if anyone wants a couple tickets at $300 each I can meet in Portland or around the area and we can transfer the goods.
I don't know why I'm surprised you're not a big Brand New fan but I am for some reason.
When I was 15 I went straight from punk (a la Dead Kennedys and Crass) to stupid hipster bullshit (a la Malkmus & the Jicks and Sonic Youth), and ended up skipping the mid-00s "alternative rock"/emo boom in general. The only album of theirs I ever gave a shot was The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me and that was waaaay later, and it never really clicked.
Ah, this makes sense. I did emo at that age instead of punk.
Maybe Bumbershoot will get the Deftones / Incubus / Death from Above 1979 tour? It wraps up in San Diego on 8/30 (Bumbershoot: 9/5-7). But a week off might not make sense, so I'm probably wrong. What can I say, I miss lineup speculation!
High School me would be very excited. Actually, present day me would be pretty thrilled too cause Deftones and DFA are still great live acts.
A friend got bailed on for a show tonight at Mt. Baker Theater. So I am going to watch Neko Case tonight. I don't really know any of her music but I am still excited to go see some live music! I potentially am going to be seeing a lot this weekend:
Friday - Wild Throne @ The Shakedown Saturday - BOTSC, Lesbian, Grenades @ Columbia City Theater Sunday - Great Falls, Tacos!, Theories, Old Iron @ Chop Suey
Taking full advantage of help with the baby from father in-law. Don't think I can stay for 4/20 though Burrito. Turns out that is the day he flies back to Baltimore
Haha, I had a friend get bailed on for her show on Thursday in Olympia. Not sure if I'll be able to head down for it though.
I'm not sure they meant to link to this info but it's the weekend following Pemberton so it could be relevant.
I'm trying to figure out what this could be. It doesn't really make sense with the way block party is scheduled unless it's a bunch of different stages mashed together. Ratatat would he on the main stage but they wouldn't have music going past midnight outside. Oh well, I'll be quite happy if ratatat, Jamie xx, and com truise play.
Unless Grimes comes out out of nowhere and drops her new one on us, this is probably going to be my Album of the Year. It's between this or Vulnicura (and maybe Gliss Riffer).
Amazingly good. I need to spend a lot of time with it though. Lots to chew on in this one. In general, I'm extremely in favor of the general shift away from irony and towards emotional honesty in a lot of music these days.
