Also, every one of you needs to listen to Rodriguez and watch Searching For Sugarman on Netflix if you haven't already.
I've been listening to a little of his stuff and enjoying it so far. Looking forward to digging derper. I looked for the documentary on Netflix a couple weeks ago and it wasn't there to watch instantly. I did, however, watch A Band Called Death and that one is fucking great. Such a cool story for those guys.

I actually feel really sorry for that girl. That's weird for me because I generally hate everyone and enjoy seeing then humiliated, pained, and otherwise uncomfortable. But something about that face and the way she can't stop making it makes me feel kinda sad for her.
Speaking of which, I have a confession. The National bores me. I've tried listening to their records several times but they have just never clicked with me. What is it that I'm missing here? I think they're a good band and all, but there's something that just doesn't hit me when I listen to them.
I remember having almost this exact discussion in the Meow Playing thread a while back. Someone suggested Boxer, which I enjoyed more than Trouble Will Find Me. They have grown on me a little, but I have to be in just the right mood and it's never the first thing I look for. I am I'm sure their live performance is much more energetic than their albums, but if they end up playing opposite Boyz Noise, there is a good chance I will be missing them completely. More realistically, I'll probably give them a couple songs to grab my attention, and if they fail to excite me, I will skip over the hill and get freaky in the dance tent.

Has anyone seen The Notwist play live fairly recently? Their first couple albums are my favorites, and their newer stuff is so drastically different, I wonder if they still play any of the older songs live.

My mix has been done for a while, just been waiting on the cover art. In no good at that sort of thing, so I had talked to one of my actual artist friends about by vision for it and he was going to make it happen. Unfortunately, my friend is really good at art and not rally good at remembering things like "the at for that CD I talked to you about." So it looks like I'll be doing that part myself. Which means it will look nothing like what I had in my head.
My dude. It's looking more like Neutral Milk Hotel vs. Fuck Buttons to me, unfortunately.
You are correct, sir! I knew they were pitted against one of those legendary bands that I never thought I'd get to see, but got confused as to which one. Fuck Buttons are playing a completely different weekend. Violent Femmes it is.
OK, it wasn't tl, I just dr clearly. Rest assured, I will bask in the glory that is all of our balls this year. Unless, of course, the Femmes end up playing opposite Fuck Buttons. In which case, I will be somewhere between both stages spinning in circles and weeping uncontrollably.
