Dispirit tonite!

probably going to see BATTLE TRANCE (saxophone quartet) here in columbus next month. i don't like going to shows alone though and i doubt i could get my sis or cuz to sit through dissonant blaring horns.

i really want to see m. geddes gengras next month in oberlin, but it's a 2 hour drive and i'm broke as shit.

I've had a bit of a break from gigs this summer but I've got some good ones coming up...

September 12th - The Wedding Present - John Peel Centre, Stowmarket
September 25th - Acid Mothers Temple - The Owl Sanctuary, Norwich
September 28th - Merzbow, Pándi, Gustafsson & Thurston Moore - London
October 1st - Merzbow - Cafe OTO
November 13th - Lee Ranaldo - Oslo, London
November 18th - Lee Ranaldo - Colchester Arts Centre

damn. Merzbow. Nice.

Drjohnrock 09.08.2016 08:25 PM

Lots of possibilities but as of now, the only definite one is Wussy on September 24 at The Woodward Theater in Cincinnati. One of the opening bands is The Paranoid Style, which is a great coup for the The Woodward Theater since they don't play many gigs. They also have a great, aggressive pop/punk (not too much pop, though) sound and lyrics that are interesting, literate and funny. Check them out if you haven't already. I like them even though they are endorsed by Robert Christgau. Speaking of Christgau, my belated but sincere apologies to The Soup Nazi for attacking him re: Christgau some time ago. TSN is a good guy who didn't deserve that from me.

Kraftwerk tomorrow night in Dallas.

Screw it, I hadn't seen this post before.

In a way I hoped they'd be bad, so that I'd feel ok missing the opening of their gig this friday.
They'll be in Angers for a festival, where Thee Oh Sees play too. But the schedule won't allow me to see both bands without missing a part of one of them.
Dilemma. Regret. I'll skip the end of thee Oh Sees, as I've seen them a few times already, but it saddens me.

Sorry Slavo for the p.m.

Good call. I think I'd do the same. I've seen Thee Oh Sees plenty. Föllakzoid once, couple years ago. Also, this new Oh Sees album is the first one that hasn't grabbed me by the balls since they hit their peak with Floating Coffin. I'm usually kind of an Oh Sees nut, but A Weird Exits just sounds pretty samey to me. Like, oh I don't know, every Ty Segall album since 2011.

Bertrand 09.13.2016 10:35 AM

I haven't given the Exit a try yet, to be true. I haven't feel compelled to check it out. They're so far better live. Plus I couldn't really listen to their previous album. Web is so good a track to my ears that I have to stop and start again every time I try to listen to the album.

I'll see Thee Oh Sees alone tomorrow anyhow. In Paris.

As for Ty Segall, it has never worked for me. Got to see him in 2013 which could explain...

Oh My God I'm Going To See M Geddes Gengras And Laurel Halo Tonight I Am So Fucking Excited

Have you heard their Live in San Francisco album? One that came out in July? Pretty good stuff. Doesn't compare to seeing them of course, but it's worth hearing.

Peterpuff 10.17.2016 12:21 PM

10/24 - True Widow - OKC - Opolis
11/2 - MEWITHOUTYOU - Tulsa - Vanguard
11/4 - Bully - OKC - Opolis
11/10 - The Anniversary - OKC - Opolis
11/18 - Warpaint - Dallas - Trees

Bytor Peltor 10.20.2016 02:48 PM

Richard Pihnas - Houston Friday, October 21, 2016

Blood_Promise 10.29.2016 09:59 AM

Jozef van Wissem, Autechre, the Necks, in that order.

PLips 11.03.2016 04:02 PM

I'm going to see the Oh Sees in Toronto with my brother in a few weeks. My brother is in his 40s and recently bought an electric guitar and started listening to music he can learn on his guitar. A lot of California bands. I got a Oh Sees concert on my computer so I'm going to listen to it to get into the songs. My brother says they're pretty cool. I saw Pangea and le Sera this year which are also from the same scene. Le Sera is a crush-o-matic. I was kinda jealous that her husband plays guitar in the band because I wanted to flirt with her at the merch table. Oh well.

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.

9 + 10 Dec: State-X New Forms Festival, The Hague, NL (especially for Lubomyr Melnyk and Wrekmeister Harmonies that feature half of Silver Mt Zion and/or God's Pee. Or at least I hope it will, otherwise I want a refund!)
12 Dec: Low @ Belfast, N-Ireland
13 Dec: Low @ Dublin, Ireland
14 Dec: Low @ Kilkenny, Ireland
This is Low's Christmas UK tour with special guests Gaelynn Lea and Erik Koskinen (whom I've never heard of)

and perhaps before that:
2 Dec: Dans Dans @ Het Bos, Antwerp, Belgium (night one of two of their new album release party)
