I’ve been asked to go see Jack White. I might go just to hang out with some friends, but I’m not excited about it at all.

White Stripes won me over with their live show in the early-‘00s, but I don’t give a shot about Jack solo.

coming Monday: Nils Frahm
March 1: Lee Ranaldo

and in between, I might see any of the following as they are all coming by near me:
Bettie Serveert
Flying Horseman
Magnapop
Esmerine

hey, Big Brave are coming to Prague!I think I will go.

_slavo_ 01.30.2018 08:38 AM

I'll be supporting M.E.S.H. soon, so I guess that will be the only concert I'll go to in a long time.

_tunic_ 01.30.2018 01:05 PM

Haha, clever. I actually chuckled.

I realize that I set myself up for ridicule time and time again, but whatever...


So The Smashing Pumpkins announced their "reunion" tour, which ultimately just means that James will now play w/ Billy & Jimmy. I mean, Jimmy has been involved with like 90% of Billy's projects post-Machina anyway. It's also funny to call it a reunion given that "The Smashing Pumpkins" have been putting out albums using that name for years. So yeah this is totally just James Iha re-joining the band.

ANYWAY, what makes the tour exciting is that they're doing setlists that are totally culled from their 90's output. They specifically said in the press release that this tour will be setlists of songs from Gish through Machina. So that's awesome. My wife and I are planning to catch them in July.

ALSO, we're thinking about seeing a Pixies/Weezer show in July as well. I think she's more excited about that one than the SP one actually. These are three of my favorite bands, so I'm just plain excited.

Finally going to a show coming up. There was a free jazz duo playing tonite in Tiny Town, but the show will be marred by a bunch of local noisicians who seem to ruin just about every house show...but get to see the mighty YOB coming up soon after in the historic Woodmen of the World hall!

_tunic_ 02.16.2018 01:42 PM

Yob is a brilliant live band! Would love to see them again sometime soon
Just saw that they released a "new" album last year , will check it out tomorrow. It's a rerelease, but I don't know it yet. Really new album will be out in the summer though

What's most fun is to stand a few rows back and see all the heads in front of you in unison going up and down in slow motion :D

Ya, I will likely be going to that here in OKC. Had not heard that about their 90s era stuff making up the set-list though. That is enjoyable news to hear.

I missed a chance to see Pixies a little while ago with Paz. Not sure what I think about that, which is odd, because Paz has actually been one of my favorite bassists for some time now. She transfixed me with Perfect Circle and solidified my love with Entrance Band. But, I mean...Kim Deal is just so integral to what the Pixies were. Luckily, I might be catching the Breeders tour though.

Seeing Pixies with Weezer does sound like a fun nostalgia trip for sure though. Should be a fun night for certain. Hope you two have fun!

noisereductions 02.21.2018 02:18 PM

Paz really is awesome. Her work w/ Zwan was awesome as well.

Ya, I never got so into Zwan. Not for any reason in particular I suppose, just did not seek them out and listen. I suppose that might have been stemmed a little from an annoyance with Corgan around Infinite Sadness era which continued on a bit, but not sure. I also enjoy Pajo's playing, so it really kinda boggles me why I never listened to that Zwan album in full.

I may have to go seek out some Zwan and give them a listen today. Do you know if Paz contributed much of her own parts for them, or was it more just playing what Corgan wrote, you know? Just curious.

Like said, it was her lines and style with Entrance Band that really hooked me hard. I feel like she just has such a solid hold on what her role can and should be as a bassist.

_tunic_ 02.27.2018 12:45 PM

I truly hate festivals but the Sunday lineup for the Cactus festival (in Brugge, Belgium) is stunning: http://www.cactusfestival.be/2018/programma_15_nl.asp

Nils Frahm
Mogwai
Slowdive
Goldfrapp
Suuns
Strand Of Oaks
Riley Walker
The Mistery Lights

I don't know the last three but all others are yummy. Well, Godfrapp don't know anymore, I loved the very first album then I lost them. But still wouldn't mind seeing them once more.

Lineup for the other days isn't complete yet, but not really for me. Triggerfinger etc.

Besides that:
Godspeed You Black Emperor are coming to Antwerpen in July, at a wonderful open-air theatre. Definitely going there!

I'm not certain, but that album feels like it had the bands full input. I love that album. Highly recommended.

taking a little trip downriver to see Phew. Saw her once in Yoshihide's New Jazz Orchestra. Among my favorite weird female vocalists, along with Jarboe, Diamanda, Haco, C Carter, Sachiko M, Junko, La Barbera, M Monk,Klein....bring em on

d.sound 03.20.2018 06:21 PM

d.sound 03.20.2018 06:25 PM

re: paz. i saw her play the violin with papa m (david pajo of slint, zwan). she was falling over drunk and her playing was strangely erotic.
