Awesome! Is this just a UK tour, or (fingers crossed) any Dutch dates as well?

Right. I probably saw this but my alcohol-addled brain :D wiped it from memory - OCCII gigs are almost always a no-go because of shows running late coupled with iffy public transport to/from there.

True, my great-grandparents were from Springfield, I can't imagine you have much better choices for live music there unless you trod the few hours drive into St Louis

Whaaaaaat? Thats crazy. Yeah... been going to the Lou and KC for shows for years... The music scene around here is depressing. It drives me bat-crazy. SYG is my fam/scene... I just stay home and experiment LOL. Although I may pack my new analog noise synth and crash a house party. Its a two day house party with bands inside and outside... We'll see.. ;)

I'm sorry, I'm born and raised in los angeles, the absolute plethora of great live music is simply gluttonous. I must have seen 350-400 shows, and I've missed at least half of the ones I should have went too!

hypertonic 09.14.2012 05:37 PM

I kinda got into EDM in my 20's... so I've probably made the STL trip for parties 30-40 times or more and KC 20-30. Now we go up for rock/noise shows. I used to do laser light shows in the region, so I'm no stranger to all the regional shows. Its a good home base to raise a kid or something, but the music scene actually located here is.. meh.. The electronic stuff here was good for a few years when two of my KC buddies moved here and had a house music night. But now days I have to consciously try not to let the locals taint or discolor my appreciation for good music.

That line-up is completely nuts - it even puts the coming Shellac ATP to shame. Fingers crossed for lots of recordings!

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 10.04.2012 03:17 PM

I didn't know any names at that show Stu is going to I youtubed EVERY band because usually I NEVER know any of the bands SYG folks post so I thought I'd chec em all out to find some new tunes..

the only thing I could even remotely tolerate was Zeni Geva and even that I thought sucked! The Oxbow Orchestra was sort of cool, sounds even like the kind of jam bands I play around with in town, but just like that, sounds like some small scale local band who hasn't cut their teeth enough to put out seriously moving art yet, but are stuck in the demo stage. JK Flesh sounds like some terrible FruityLoops mix.. Doomsday Student was ok in a kind thrashy Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention way. Gnod was cool, but I couldn't imagine listening to more than a few minutes of it at a time, and I can sit through just about any 37 minute Grateful Dead drums solo section ;) I think I could dig Grey Hairs if guy didn't remind too much of Adam Sandler if he were in the Descendents.. Mother Trucker was like some heavy shoegaze, I can dig it since instrumental stone rock is just about what I love to play in bands with, sort of like early Chevelle so I just might check out more of this, indeed it sounded about as stuck in 1999 as I do when I'm jamming heavy with my folks. Six Organs of Admittance I had heard of, and while it was tolerable, I really don't like Robert Plant (he practically ruins Jimmy Page and Zeppelin for me) so folks doing their best to imitate him really dissuade me quickly. In fact I think I feel EXACTLY the same way about Six Organs etc.. as I do about Zeppelin, perfect instrumental music, terrible singer. And honestly, I generally question the musical integrity of bands that are so brilliant musically, and yet don't realize their singer fucking sucks, makes me wonder, can't they notice, and if not, why the fuck not?

I guess I could dig Ranga but even that just sounded like me and lil homies fucking around in the jam space, not necessarily a more serious attempt and performing or making a deeply artistic album. There is a world of difference between just jamming around the house for fun, and the dedicated and draining craft of putting together a legitimate album or stage show. There was never an crescendo moments that just got me and said, "This is my new band to listen to" like for example, a particular track from the new Corin Tucker Band (before I was on the fence, after that track I got it, I'm hooked)


In others words thanks SYG for absolutely and completely and utterly wasting an hour of my time!

There goes my theory to agree with Kurt Cobain that every mid-decade there is a peak of a "few really good bands" because everything new sucks!

 


Corin Tucker Band at the Echo on Sunset October 9 :)

I can't go now, I have to work that weekend and can't get out of it. I'm gutted. :(

I have just got back from seeing Pelt, Gate and Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides and will transfer these recordings soon... but I need to sleep now and get ready for Fushitsusha tomorrow night!

Awesome. Last time I saw them (in 2005) they were absolutely perfect. I'm delighted to know they'll be playing in Mexico City as part of their current tour. I still haven't gotten my ticket, though. Should try to buy it in the next few weeks. I've been putting money aside for other shows (I'm seeing Laurel Halo, Tim Hecker, and Sun Araw in the next two days)...

hirsute_biped 10.09.2012 11:31 AM

Goddamn! Are Dirty Three not one of the best bands in existence?! My first time seeing them last night, last show of their US tour, wild and woolly, ragged and right, tender and brutal, ancient and post-apocalyptic, absolutely perfect. Warren is hilarious. My wife hasn't smoked in four years, but had to bum a cigarette afterwards, such is their power. Upload coming soon...
