Like, yo. Who's legs am I humping at this tonight?
going to be there ... then he's going to a KISS convention
Can't hump my leg, but you can hump my friend's. Are you bringing a pirate's hat?
I'm going to Arab Strap. Yay!
no holding anyone elses' hand.
or my arms will be folded.
I'll be thinking about you too but you already knew that.
as well if all goes to plan but not too sure yet - Bob -stop going out - save yr energy for next Tuesday!!!!
what's happening next Tuesday?
Nothing squirrel, nothing at all.
Arab Strap! Tonight!
it's your silly quiz, isn't it? I was hoping it would be something REALLY GOOD.
Who wants a Wolf Parade ticket?
I'm sorry. I hope you retain your crown of glory.
I fucking hope so.
I'm back at my parents house on Sunday specifically to re-charge my batteries in preparation for Tuesday (and to see my family, eat nice food, catch up with old mates and use their phone).
No humping though. Or smoking.
I don't think i'll have too much trouble recognising you if you are.
for me Crabbers. Go on. Please - fags and gigs are like Fish & Chips - hot and sticky and bad for yr health - hurrah
Next Tuesday, Squirrell? well at the moment it involves 3 men and 1 woman and money changes hands
so far I have passed 2 hurdles. Go me, go!
Darcers - but you wont be so appealing and mysterious to me anymore
i achieved an hour without cigarettes while they were on at the rescue rooms on monday, couldn't get thru the encore without tho, luckily i was up in the DJ booth so escaped Meloy's ire.
i envy you all who sail the good ship tonight, my best mate is going, told him to practice the noise he'd make if he were to be eaten by a carnivorous whale, as you all should. far too many commas.
though I do want to watch the Decemberists if only for their Tsar baiting ace name - I am just so not with it somedays
grinning like a loon.
with a cold. And a headache. And a green jumper. And orange t shirt. Say hi, but don't kiss or hug me unless you want the plague. Actually, don't kiss or hug me even if you do want the plague as I'm not sure I want to be kissed or hugged by a plague-lover.
but im still trying to think of a way to see of montreal, tv on the radio and criteria aswell
TV on the Radio has apparently been cancelled.
it has. That makes me sad. Very sad. Maybe I'll go to see Of Montreal or Squarepusher instead.
you could come and see The Decemberists? I promise not to offer to pick you up.
it sold out though?
wangle a ticket like at The National?
a shot but I'm leaning towards Of Montreal at the moment cause it'll be the easiest to blag and the romantic mixtape thread has intrigued me!
good news for me if they reschedule and go see of montreal coz their great.
just saw about the singers dad dying, I retract the above comment.
Squarepusher is playing?
Why didn't I buy a ticket for that.
Gutted Alan Homesick
so that's what it means
you're too good at this detective malarky. Is it the beard? I should really grow one if it gives you these columbo-like powers. I'd probably look like a smack-head though.
.....grand! Never has an audience sang and smiled since the days of mclusky. The mariners revenge was, of course, amazin and there was a good selection of songs. ended too soon.
it was superb! they were all very dapper looking and seemed to be blissfully unaware of just how much everyone in the room wanted to have their children.
"PLAY MARINER'S OR I'LL KILL MY CHILDREN" = crablin +50 points.
That show was brilliant.
I was standing behind Colin throughout it and also thought he was funny.
I didn't say hi as he probably gets enough stalkers nowadays but I think it needs pointing out that on the way out I heard a few people leaving the venue going:
"that would have been a good show, if it wasn't for that fucking Colin guy and his friends ruining it".
You can't please everyone I suppose.
Anyways, setlist for anyone writing a review etc:
Architect (crossed out, i.e not played)
but I felt it did descend into pantomime a bit towards the end.
The best bit was when Colin Meloy got everyone to sit down and this one guy refused, so these girls were shouting at him to sit down. Eventually he goes 'how about I just fuck off then' and gave the girls the V-sign and walked off. Oh, that and This Sporting Life.
there were too many good gigs on last night.
Of montreal and fonda 500 were ACE X 100
Are Fonda 500 still going? Have they got any new records out?
I'd heard a couple of albums before but I'd forgotten about them, they were spiffing, and their frontman is a fat yorkshire bloke wearing a hat with panda ears on who plays a casio keyboard with the notes written on the keys.
The drummer was ace too.
they were ace weren't they? Anyone who performs in a red ruffled bib and white flares deserves our respect.
I've not heard a single thing by them but heard they are good.
like a lofi weird beatles/beach boys but better, with really sweet lyrics.
Of Montreal should really have been born in the sixties.
You should have said hi though. I love meeting people!
but have got a really bad haircut so am trying to keep a low profile.
I like them on cd but was surprised how much better live. This years been so good it makes all that passed for live music up to 2005 look like it wasnt even trying.
and did anyone keep getting sent randon bluetooth stuff. I got Alan Patridge a naked troll doll and an egg.
phat_wit_a_phd. i was really bored and on my own so i bluetooth some stuff. hoped i broight some joy into ur life.
this was b4 the band was on. i was not bored wen decemberists were on
I'd already read your post and formed my conclusion.
How dare you call The Decemberists boring? Have you no soul?
like a friend of mine kept being sent on the train the other week. I tried to send sufjan stevens live clips to people but had no takers. Some people changed their phone names to 'go away'. Next time I might change my phone name to my user name in case anyone wants to say hello.
