I have, and it disappointed me.
Then I put it on, just like that, and they rocked me.
These guys can /could be soo good.

Expect to be blown away, PLips.

Bad Luck Jonathan -Saturday December 3, 2016, MOTR Pub, Cincinnati, Ohio

This is the next one on my radar. Bad Luck Jonathan is one of the 50,000 side bands that Jon Langford of The Mekons is in. Best of all, like most shows at the MOTR Pub, it's free admission.

Just saw the recent show. Still good and all, but Coyne's Jesus complex has gotten way out of control and the overall pacing of their shows has suffered accordingly for the past decade or so, imo. I hope you like unicorns.

Gonna go see JANDEK perform at Lawndale Arts Center Friday! http://www.freepresshouston.com/jand...ers-speakeasy/

I loved Kilkenny! It was such a surreal experience, I thought I was walking in Harry Potter land. Imagine this school building:
 


and all the kids wearing their school uniform (which kids in the Netherlands and many other European countries don't do), and all the boys are carrying their Hurley sticks which is a sport I had never heard of.

And I never knew that the Titanic was built in Belfast, so I visited that museum. And I also never knew that the writer of Guliver's Travels was a bisshop in Dublin.
and the concerts were great as well, especially Gaelynn Lea's support set

They're playing in a surprisingly small club that I've never been to before. I'm not sure how it's going to work, with all that their stage show entailed last time I saw them.

I think around the time of Embryonic, they had dialed back their whole approach a notch or two and it lead to some of their best music ever. I would like to see them perform more minimally. Or at least take a lesson from the Stones and insert a little "garage band" intermission into their live show where they abandon all pyrotechnics and just kick out the jams in for a few songs.

I could not agree more. Yes, it will be interesting to see what they do at a smaller club. The show here was still pretty elaborate at a decent sized theater-type setting. I hate to be too pissy and negative towards them. I still love seeing them and all, I just wish Wayne would shut the fuck up sometimes and get on with it.

Hey, no worries my friend. We ALL wish that about Wayne Coyne. He's such a fucking shit-talker and megalomaniac. I love (hate) hearing him wax pedantic and philosophical about rock n' roll and substances and consciousness and the Lips' music. He sounds like an ass, and he does a lot of asshole things. If someone were to just read about him, follow his twitter, and watch interviews, one would have no idea how crushingly beautiful the Flaming Lips can be, or how charming and full of life their music is (mostly).
In that respect he's a bit like the Kanye West of indie rock. People think him a fuckwad, with good reason, and often miss out on the sometimes disarming emotional poignance of the band's best work.

Seriously, I agree with you 100%, and I'm a HUGE Lips fan from WAY back. When Sonic Youth broke up, they essentially became my favorite living band (not sure that's true anymore, haven't been on a Lips kick in a long time), and I've seen them so many times I've lost count, between '95 and 2013. But he drives me batty sometimes. Turns me off of the music even.

What's funny is that he knows he's not the real musical visionary talent behind the band. He's the mad conductor. The public image, etc. I too wish he would dial it down and just focus on the music. Because when they really focus, they are capable of making transcendent music. Whether it's over-the-top synth-prog rock ("The Gash") or stripped down noise rock ("Shine on Sweet Jesus") or, y'know, dance-pop with a dash of noise ("Ego Trippin'," "Are You a Hypnotist?") They're a serious band, and I'd love to see them spend more time in that mindset.

Also, I'm getting a little old for big explosive noisy strobelight filled concerts. Just being honest. They don't hold as much appeal for me now as they once did.

PLips 01.20.2017 09:25 PM

Yeah I'm going to see a chick band from California called 'Cherry Glazer' next tuesday.

I don't really know them my brother is just following the indy scene in california.

Yeah it's just going to be chill and fun. My brother will buy me a pack of smokes and some beer and an excuse to go to Toronto. No big whoop.
