how was the rest of your holiday???
DC was cold and windy whilst i was there, but nice to walk around and did the museums, capitol hill etc. philly was a friendly place, but i arrived the night their baseball team won the world series (first time in 28 years!), so the city was a bit crazy with celebrations :D
did you go to any wild parties after i left you? how was casiotone?
i'd love to have seen something like that :D
the todd p show that night was pretty mental. melissa got us to meet at one stop and we ended up walking for a long time through BAD parts of brooklyn in the pissing rain trying to find the place, despite there being a subway stop right next to it. the venue was awesome though, this little triangular space above a convenience store with elevated subway tracks running alongside it. they had two PAs set up so the music was mostly continuous all night, AIDS Wolf + The Mae Shie + An Albatross + some others I don't remember the names of were all really good, seeing DMBQ again was a bit much though. getting home was horrible though, the train terminated somewhere above canal street and i had to walk laura to get her proper train. ended up walking up Bowery at about 4am and it was like being on The Strand at a similar time - not so good al, not so good.
Casiotone was really good as well, despite his tendancy to go off telling rambling stories. he did tell us though that there's not only a new album out next year but also a compilation of all the various singles he's put out over the last few years. yay!
did the guy from DMBQ try to set his pubic hair on fire again? getting lost in brooklyn twice in one day eh?!
i was completely soaked from standing in the queue for 20 minutes in that rain, which was literally around the block, to get inside for TMBG. but i'm not even complaining about that as they played for 2 & a half hours and about 40 songs! nice little venue too.
