Who's the support tonight?
excited about this.
going to be there?
i'm pretty sure he's playing with modest mouse
no, sorry, I've got a spare thicket... a spare thicket
it's just sitting in my garden blocking the view
anyone want a spare thicket? good quality - dense.
he's got two spare 'tickest' - cue equally humourous response?
but I've decided against it for money/me being silly reasons
all the spare tickets gone?
on myspace - seems quite average
they are on at 7.45

good stuff, like. Lots of stuff off Good News, quite a few new songs (maybe a couple too many), plus a few older ones. Trailer Trash and Doin The Cockroach were amazing.
how were the new songs? What was Marr like?
which was kinda surprising. They were really good, strangely paced set all my favourites played early but new songs nearly always bore me, the sound wasn't great especially the vocals and they finished in a unspectacular way but yeah good.
i sort of agree about the pacing of the set. But the new songs sounded pretty solid, although it's hard to tell on just one listen.
they seemed to lose it about a third of the way in... there was no interaction with the crowd - i think it would have been great if he'd told everyone when he was playing the new stuff so you had the chance to change the way you listen to it. bury me with it - my favourite song didn't even seem to come off. also koko is a nice looking venue but it's shit - shit sound, shit expensive beer, shitting ages to get out at the end.
perhaps it's cause i'd been looking forward to it for a couple of months... i thought it was pretty weak.
one of many reasons why I didn't go. Sounds like I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it, seeing as I got bored of Good News.... pretty quickly.
The first part of the set was pretty good, despite standing where I couldn't see the set. It dragged towards the end and they kept extending the old songs for no reason. Some of the new songs sounded pretty good but they should never play "Tiny Cities.." ever again, it sounded awful.
I've seen them before and they were great live - I guess Marr is fucking the band up.
