saw him back on the Plastic Fang tour in Toronto at a huge ass fucking place. was a rather good show. managed to smoke a joint right in front of him pretty much. taped that show (this was before i had the minidisc recorder) and some shit hit the fan at the show. some guy managed to get up on stage. got on the mic to sing and jon called CUT! russell hopped over his drum kit and took care of things. crowd goes nuts. they continue on. last song was a jam with Dub Narcotic Sound System, but by that point, my batteies died. i was at the time hoping he would bust out any Pussy Galore song. but he didn't, but maybe this time? (yeah, right!) get enough people chanting that shit, then it oughta piss him off...on the other hand, where i'm about to see him. there is a 101% chance that i will get to meet them all. the place is rather small, but not as small as that place where i will see Andrew WK (same shit. saw him in a huge ass club and the place went nuts. and now this upcoming show may as well be in your backyard and he can set up his shit in the garage. IT'S TIME TO PARTY!! i can see someone getting hurt at that show)
no means no
bardo pond in august.
I have heard that they're one of the better live bands around so very pumped for this one.

Well I just found out I'm going to be seeing Ghostface Killah soon. So, that's pretty badass.
Kendrick Lamar + Earl Sweatshirt – August 2, Sound Academy, Toronto
so stoked it's unbelievable. kinda far off but tickets were going fast. when I found out earl was joining kendrick on tour for one night in my hometown, I couldn't turn it down
do you walk down there, or park for $20 there?
i really hate that place for that
not to mention $8.50 drinks
Been working hard, no time for gigs lately. However, just got tix for Black Sabbath in Sept, and Godspeed just announced North American tour dates, so I'll have to make up for missing them last time. I just missed Dinosaur Jr and J Mascis again, damnit...

peter murphy in lisbon 30 may , playing bahaus songs.

Going to this awesome show on Sunday which is set to feature Chris & Cosey, Excepter, Mika Vainio and Powell.

this friday coming up...SECRET CHEIFS 3...the arabian night
Might go to these:
Edwards / Parker / Prévost - with special guest Alexander von Schlippenbach
Akio Suzuki & Aki Onda
Oren Ambarchi presents 'Knots' with Strings
I DON'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE: Film, stories & images from the Mississippi Records and Alan Lomax archive
Will go to:
Pengo & Blood Stereo
I've got so many sweet shows coming up in the next couple of months:
- 2 times Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Saw NY once, but never the Crazy Horse, so told myself it's worth the money to go see twice. And there's a month in between them.
- 2 times Lee, one band night, one special special performance at Holland Festival
- Chelsea Light Moving the day before seeing Lee. So I'm hoping Lee or Steve or even both will be attending as well....
- Wedding Present doing the Hit Parade album. But not the cover B/sides unfortunately
- Project/Object. Zappa playing the small hall in my hometown, can't resist that.
- Dinosaur Jr, once or twice. Besides playing in my hometown, they play this strange rockabilly festival very nearby.
- This Thursday: Lubomyr Melnyk. Check out his latest album Corollaries on Erased Tapes. It's amazingly beautiful.
- and best of all, at least two times Godspeed You Black Emperor, and probably 4 times but those other two are not on sale yet. One of them will be at the Marmorkirken in Copenhagen. Even though I've seen them plenty over the last two years, that's just unresistable.
Saw an excellent set by the Berne Nix Quartet yesterday, the week I hope to see Tom Carter back in action in town...he has a couple dates scheduled...
Glad to hear his health has recovered!
(in addition to the aforementioned boris and bardo pond; pretty quiet period for tours right now)
Definitely worth it, you never know, this might be the last time they tour...
those were my thoughts exactly. Plus that I'll get hopefully a chance to hear some more oldies, if he chooses to play a somewhat different setlist.
just got my tickets for Reggae Night at the Hollywood Bowl. This is my tenth year straight going to this once in a lifetime kind of festival, which is insane that we here in LA pull this off not only ten times, but 13 total! There is nothing else like it in the world, 20,0000 people dancing and singing roots reggae all night under the stars..
Lee Ranaldo band this coming Monday.
Mainliner are touring the UK/Ireland!
went to see SECRET CHIEFS 3 the other night
my recording came out really good of it as well
damn! they were fucking amazing
BLACK CAT ATTACK this Saturday
PRIMUS next Saturday
SICK OF IT ALL the next Thursday (maybe)
FLAG the following Friday
OLD MAN MARKLEY that Saturday
and that's just for the next 3 weeks
there's still that BJORK & ZAPPA PLAYS ZAPPA shows months later
missed Shellac yesterday :(
