I went out to Calgary from Vancouver for this and holy shit did it ever kick ass! A bunch of new songs were premiered to the public for the 1st time according to Thurston! I ate a bunch of hash for my afternoon breakfast and had a truly surreal experience and happened to get excellent audio and video recordings of the whole show!:D

The only thing is, I forgot one of my recorders at my parent's house so I won't be able to share the show until I go back there on July 12 to see Melvins Lite and I pick it up. Once I get back I will be sharing Lee Ranaldo's set from Sled Island last year as well.

After the show I went and had some beers with some friends and then went to see Nomeansno who blew my mind as well!

Here's someone else's videos of Thurston's set, thanks to kerryo11:

do you get better quality recordings if you eat hash rather than smoke it? I should try next time...
better to forget the recorder before than after the show ;-)

Actually, I was talking about eating potatoes! Can you smoke potatoes? Hmmm. I think I'll try it. Smoking banana peels get you high! :D

This is awesome. Hey, did you see Thurston at the Rickshaw with Kurt Vile? I keep missing so many great shows.

Yep, I did. I recorded that one too. I've got a huge backlog of shows to work on and lots of other bands which is why I haven't gotten around to sharing it yet. It was way mellower then the Calgary show. I think he got most of the mellowness out of his system on that tour!

I loved both shows cuz I'm into mellow and heavy but if I had to pick, which you just made me do, I'd have to say I liked the Calgary show better cuz hearing the new songs for the first time live sounded spectacularly wonderful!

I'd like to think it's a matter of making sure I'm in the right place at the right time, but yeah I guess I am very lucky!:D

Do you live in Vancouver too?
