I went to see Danny Brown on Saturday at the Showbox Market. Didn't realize it was an all ages show before we got there. I love that venue but it sucks for all ages. No way in hell that you can get up close unless you get there early and do not want to have any alcohol. This is the third time that I have seen Danny Brown and it was the first time not in a festival setting. My expectations were lofty because he was great at Sasquatch and CHBP. You know what though? Fucking hype men. He never had them at the festival shows but he had anywhere between 2-5 on stage with him on Saturday. So dumb, I just want to hear Danny Brown not his bros. The crowd was vibin' pretty tough in there so that was fun but I just can't get over how annoying those guys are on stage. It was my least favorite of the three Danny Brown shows I have seen despite it being in one of my favorite venues. Still had a fun time...just being critical.

I don't know if I can swing it but on Wednesday Black Breath, Theories and He Whos Ox Is Gored are playing at Narwhal. That is the little bar on the bottom floor of Unicorn in Capitol Hill. Black Breath seems huge to be playing there. I am going to the day game for the M's earlier on so I am debating on staying down there for the show. I just don't know if I have the energy for a work night show this week though. If you live on the hill and want to see some awesome heavy music that is the show for you.
Just traded Felix Hernandez. Can't believe that I did that but I was in such desperate need of outfield help. Oh well, at least now I wont be thinking about fantasy baseball every time he pitches. That decision is making me a little sick though.
Pancakes! I am so excited that you were able to talk with Jason. He is a very cool dude. I am also glad you were able to catch some of their set. I'm not sure how far away from Spokane you are but I know they are playing at a thing called Volume Fest at the end of the month. I will keep my eyes out for Witch Mountain, sounds radical.
Pretty sure this is the list I am going into it with.
1. Queens Of The Stone Age 2. Mogwai 3. Outkast 4. Sandrider 5. Liars 6. Portugal. The Man 7. Rodriguez 8. Deafheaven 9. Cut Copy 10. Die Antwoord 11. Major Lazer 12. Foals 13. M.I.A. (would be higher but only seeing 30 minutes of her set) 14. chune-Yards 15. Elbow
There is a band named Great Falls? I can't help but wonder if the name comes from the wonderful city of Great Falls, MT.
It could be but they are a Seattle band. They are pretty brutal and their bassist is pretty politically charged so it may be something about great falls in that realm or something along those lines. Totally speculating though. They are fucking insane live but do not stand in front of the bassist unless you are ready to get run over. He is all over the place. Amazing to watch....from the other side of the stage. Great show.
