i'm sure most of you guys who have years on me have seen way more youth shows

1) The Aud in Buffalo with Neil Young & Social Distortion
2) Buffalo State College with Boredoms
3) University of Rochester
4) Rochester Institute of Technology
5) Central Park Summer Stage with Wilco
6) Towne Ballroom, Buffalo
7) Webster Hall, NYC on Friday the 13th, 2004
8) Lee & Friends at the Tralf in Buffalo 2002(?)
9) McCarren Park Pool
10) McCarren Park Pool
11) Pretty sure they played a Lollapalooza at some point.
Looking forward to the MPP show at the end of the month! Is there an opening act yet? Anybody have tickets to the ATP Festival?

In the past two years I have seen Sonic Youth three times (soon to be four!) and Thurston twice. Making my sonic factor 3.2. Solid.

I'm including my brief description of the 1st show, and I attended both, but I'm also including a link so you Crimson fans can read what you like about both shows. I know there are several of you here. The Nashville shows were the 'warmups' and I attend each incarnation of the KC band that performs these. Unfuricken REAL !!! KC is the very best !!!!!! This makes my 9th time seeing them, first time on June 6, 1974.



 



My post here is about pg. 5 of the forums on this link....Please read the reviews offered here if you're a fan.

miracle ticket !
:: Posted by kc6674 on August 03, 2008


Great things come to those who have no expectations. I was hanging out at the front of the Belcourt last night when I heard someone say, "Give it to the guy on the bicycle". I was astonished when a gentleman gave me a ticket to the sold-out show. I had a ticket already for tonight’s performance, but missed out on purchasing for the first night. I didn’t even have to hold my finger up in the ’hoping for a miracle posture !!!’. So to whoever it was with such generosity..THANK YOU MUCHLY !!!

The show was fantastic. Adrian is such a great frontman. He engaged with the audience a bit less than I thought he might, having attended other ’warmup’ gigs here in Nashville. At one point he made a (sorta) ’Zappa’ reference.He mentioned while putting on his beige moccasins,(paraphrasing) "You can’t play rock and roll with brown shoes". I wanted to yell out "Brown Shoes Don’t Make It !", but contained myself. I got a good laugh anyway. Even Robert had been more talkative and animated in past initiating shows. I sat in the 10th row center and the sound was excellent. My view of Robert was mostly obstructed as he was behind his rack, as pointed out, but I could still see his fretwork and occasional glimpses of his face. Tony played like he never missed a beat or had been out of the lineup for 10 years, and Pat and newcomer Gavin Harrison were MONSTERS on their drums. What a sonic blast from all of them !!

The biggest surprise for me was them playing The Talking Drum/Lark’s Tongues Pt. 2. It took me back to my first KC show in Ft. Worth, Texas in June of 1974. They did an exciting rendition. I have to admit, my favorite more recent tune was also played, Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream. The setlist was much of Discipline (Elephant Talk, Frame by Frame, Thela Hun Gingeet, and Indiscipline), Thrak/Vrooom (One Time, Vrooom and SSEDD). The Construction of Light started the show, after a percussive intro of which there were 2 or 3 drumming duets interspersed in the set. The rearragements of many of the tunes was a fresh offering since there really wasn’t any new material played. Gavin added the new element with much gusto and technical precision.

Wow, I just can’t wait till tonight for Belcourt warmup Part 2. I’m still buzzing from the show last night and maybe someone will give a more critiqued post of the tunes themselves.

take care, and thank you Robert and KC for coming back together again and doing these ridiculously inexpensive shows for us ’hometown’ folks at a great, intimate venue !!

yeah, i remember that thread and yes, i still fucking hate you for that.

i kinda regret not seeing them a couple of years ago in mexico.
