I remember getting trampled during DFA, and I remember singing to Foo as I wondered away from the mainstage. But there are a bunch of pics with me and switch and "faux geno" (switch's little bro) that I dont remember at all.
My brother, myself, and some dude we met during the Bronx lol'd at the DFA "pit". That thing was just as I pictured it would be.
The best part about it was that it was hardly a pit. I broke into the robot at least three times. Fun fun fun
Yes. Your lead singer dead? Start a new band. I'm looking at you too Alice in Chains.
Okay we are all getting carried away with this one.
I was giving an unimpressed "burn".
I'm just saying, both are really quite lame and for me at least are unwanted at the Gorge. There's varying arguments as to what bands should do when a member dies, and plenty of examples of who did a good job of dealing with it and who didnt, but at the end of the day Sublime w/Rome just sucks and that's that.
But really, i dont even care, i just want to know! to quote Marley, "I WANNA KNOW I WANNA KNOW I WANNA KNOW NOW"
I'm expecting to feel satisfied but not overwhelmed with the lineup. That's my aim; it's safe. I've been cultivating that expectation for a while meow but last night I got this feeling that there's gonna be one headliner that's just batshit crazy awesome, like a Radiohead or something, but I think I'll just attribute that to pre-announcement jitters.
You must be referring to Bjork. Nothing else matters.
You're probably going to hate me for this but I've never listened to Bjork, except maybe in passing. Not for any reason, just never made the effort. If she turns out to be a headliner I'm gonna have some serious investigation to do.
And I'm only gonna say this once because I'm risking alcoholic vehemence, but I've been boycotting Pabst since they lowered the percentage here in Canada. Most pointless alteration to a delicious drink since New Coke.
The only reason I'd prefer a Loud Friday as opposed to an Electronic one is that the 25th is my birthday and there's a higher likelihood of bands that I enjoy playing the former than the belt sander. I'm still choked I missed seeing Explosions in the Sky as a birthday show in 2009.
Canucks against Detroit tonight but that should end by nine thirty, and I'll have my laptop anyways.

Man I wish I had some brews, though. Drunk foruming is rad. Maybe I'll hafta crack open the Honey JD's...
Deerhunter was too tantalizing, and that set blew my goddamn mind. Third favorite performance from last year.
SOFA KING good! I was surprised to not be able to find any discussion of this show on this board. THE best performance I've seen at The Gorge since Bjork in 2007, and it wasn't even in the gorge. Incredible. And the weather was too perfect...I really can't put my love for that set into words.
Tell me about it! I remember reading the pamphlet thing beforehand and there was a quote from like Karen O or someone describing Deerhunter's live show as "a divine experience", and i was like "ummyeah" but that's really what it was. Watching them as evening faded and night came on was bliss. The lights were perfect, too. Just...gah. Great.
Favorite show was Modest Mouse, just because, well, yeah. That was a perfect experience. And second was DFA because that was one of the funnest pits I've been a part of.
Oh, the Gorge's sunsets are among the most gorgeous things I've ever seen, dont get me wrong. I just mean that the FLAMING FUCKING LIPS usually have a very very enticing live presence and effects, which I didn't really get last year. And yeah, the fact that they substituted Gash and Sleeping on the Roof for talk about spiderbites was a disappointment.
Especially since, apparently, it wasn't a spiderbite at all but rather an infection from Stephen shooting into veins on his hand...lol.
ps. awesome filter
