Didn't get to see many bands actually, but Ulan Bator, Sonic Youth and Zu are firsts on the list.

9/3 Old Springs Pike at Rockwood Music Hall (Secret Show)

There must've been about thirty people there, which is about all Rockwood can hold. It was six so it was still light out and the front of the place is all windows so the lighting was nice. Johnny Gallagher almost passed out. I spoke to the band for a little while afterwards and they wrote little comments on the polaroids I took.

hands down the youth in marfa. at the chinati foundation open house. incredible weekend... fucking awesome experience all around. what more could you ask for than this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hgx_5dWJXJI
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQjHagWTHO8&feature=related

for free in the art capitol of west texas




 


outside of this hotel




 





 



yellowtail chardonnay and a couple of corndogs from this place....


 

friendly people, free camping, breakfast burritos and a hot cup of coffee in the morning, designer trailer trash, outdoor sculpture, indoor galleries...

i had a great time despite the fact that a butterfly flapping it's wings in Peru caused a rainstorm in Jacksonville which caused early afternoon hail in the mountains of west Texas, all of which caused me to only see the encore of the sonic youth show... which in itself was absolutely amazing ... but anyone with access to a recording of the full show should step up and release this outstanding, once in a lifetime gig on dvd and torrent the mother!@#$ out of it... in my opinion.

snoop dog came, a kid got stabbed.

A lot of good ones this year:

Grouper
Sunburned
Wolf Eyes
Motor Ghost
GZA
Earth
Connan and the Mockasins
Qui

Probably the best was Circle. They were incredible. There's probably a load of other stuff I am forgetting. Deerhoof actually, they were pretty great.

phillip jeck in tel aviv
peter brotzmann in tel aviv last week
animal collective and eric copeland in boston
john butcher and eddie prevost in jerusalem
recess rejects in tel aviv- my bands "sisterband" ie we lend eachother gear and most oif us are rweally close friends. they had two sghows. one which ended with semi rotten bannanas all over the place and their singer just vcovered in em. the ther ended with the bartender throwing him off the bar rsulting in him falling on a glass and cutting himself but refusing to stop so the last two sogns were him screaming into the mic whild blood is ppouring all over the room and threatening to kill the bartender.
pretty intense.....

Sonic Youth - Paris
Thurston Moore - Paris
Thurston Moore - Dublin
Wolf Eyes - Dublin
Liars - Dublin
Mono - Dublin (I think this was sometime around end/beginning of 2007)
Ligtning Bolt - Dublin ( now. was it last year?) - anyway, one of the best gigs ever

on the other hand, missed many good shows in Dublin, like: Sonic Youth, Battles, Melvins, Boredoms and Bardo Pond.

I think there seems to be a direct correlation between the best shows I saw and the best drugs I took. The best single show I saw was AMT in Asheville. I also went a African/world music festival in the mountains. We camped way back in the woods and hardly anyone showed but the artist were awesome. Sierre Leone Nation refugees and Diabate damn near brought tears to my eyes and Farke Toure was excellent as well. I also saw Dan Deacon and Girl Talk which I had to say had a much younger and more hyped audience than almost anything I've ever seen. Melt Banana was good, consistent, and the same as usual with new songs. Bonaroo had some highlites(tortoise, hot chip, Ween, Sasha and Digweed(really fucked up for this one), Ween, and Manu Choa.
