Kevin Shields live show...

http://www.koos.org/calendar.html

dunno what this is, but iwas looking up shows for a friend who is going over to Long Beach / LA Calif. next week and recalled one of my heroes playing at Koo's (Walter from Rival Schools/Quicksand/Walking Concert - unitedbywalter.com) so i thought i'd check what they have on when she's there.

anyway, this Kevin Shields thing shows up on the calendar on 27th Oct. 2005

It's really strict at work. I started to feel cut off and I brought my laptop in one day to take to bryant park, only to find that I actually had a good connection right here. I can stream radio which for me is a life saver. Music makes all the difference. I bow down to Apartment Guy and his network illiteracy... too good to be true, with my luck, it's probably the ceo's apartment.

So I went out and saw Van Halen with David Lee Roth at one of the local bars here on friday night. They played a good portion of diver down and 1984... OK so it was "Van Heaven" and they were terribly drunk and well they just sucked but it was pretty funny for a novelty act.


Anyway so we took my fiance's dad camping and to see String Cheese Incident for his birthday a few weekends ago. I know that jam bands probably bore most of you folks to tears but I have to admit it was a good show. Mind you I'm not running out to buy Cheese cds but it was cool. They played a 3 hour set and varied the tempo and style enough that it wasn't mundane. They ran through some bluegrass, blues, and latin sounds among the long jams. I was more taken by these guys on stage with their communication/hand signals for getting back on track from some of the more out there jams. Its nice to see someone taking the music more seriously than most normal bands that hop on stage and run through a quick set without any unknowns popping up. I felt like I got my moneys worth well before the show was over. So they play 3-4 encore tunes and the shows over and we linger a bit at the bar after. Then we stroll outside and the two guitarists and percussionist are sitting on the bar in the veranda playing an acoustic set to about 200 folks. No Mics, completely acoustic. The fans were all shushing each other to get everyone quieted down so everyone could hear. They played for about 45 more minutes doing mostly traditional bluegrass tunes under the stars to this small crowd. A very nice rendition of "redemption song" got played and everyone sang along. It was nice...

I wasn't going to mention it, but I saw the String Cheese Incident with a friend who had extra tix a couple of weekends ago. Didn't know what I was getting into until after my wife agreed for me and I checked their website. I hate the dead, but I was always partial to Mickey Hart. So the "hippy drumming" part wasn't so bad. I found it amazing that when one of the guys jumped off their instrument, I could not detect any change in the music. I guess the light show was pretty cool - not the official light show but the glo-stick tossing. Were they still carrying around the NOLA musicians? That for me was the best part, getting to hear some blues. I definitely would not go see them again, but after a few beers the repetativeness of that kinda music stops getting annoying. The most interesting thing for me was that the acoustic guitar had like 4 pedals attached to it. I kept thinking that guy was going to get electrocuted hitting those things with his bare feet.

I was hoping to cleanse myself at the Riddle of Steel show last week, but I guess I'll have to wait until the Life and Times come to town in 10 days.

Hehe. No there were no NOLA musicians for the show :( I'll agree about the glo-stick tossing "hippy" contingent being strong though. I still need a cleansing show but alas I live in booneyville.

Oh man. Boomer is that show tonight? If I hadn't spent excessive income this week on appraisals and a new projector I'd probably head your way. I must make it down there to meet you guys at a show sometime.

Okay - Life and Times/Murder By Death, November 11 at the Masquerade (Hell) ATL, GA.

I get there around 8:30 and there's this huge line of people wearing black spandex/leather with chains and spikes and stuff. I hear horrid screaming from Heaven (that's the upstairs venue in this Heaven/Hell/Purgatory club). I go the the entrance to hell with my ticket and find out that i have to go get in line with these folks to get my hand stamped (so much for advance tickets). Turns out HateBreed is the band up in heaven (kinda ironic). Get my 21+ wristband and my hand stamped and I'm off to hell. I get in and the life and times are soundchecking, saying "4 minutes to rock o'clock". I hear strange heavy metal coming out of the stacks - I thought it was strange to be playing that kind of music before L/T. Turns out it wasn't coming from the speakers, it was coming from upstairs. Arrgh.

Life and Times played a pretty short set. Mostly the new album with "Houdini" the only track from Flat End. Being in such a small venue, I was able to stand next to the stage about 3 feet away from Epley. Singer and Bassist for Murder by Death were next to me cheering them on. Sound was pretty good, but Epley continually asked sound man to either kill off a dead pedal or increase delay on this song, etc. I could tell he was getting a little miffed at the sound man (Murder By Death would have the same problems in their set, too). There were about 40 people watching the show. I'd say maybe 10 of us cheered loudly after each song - one group of guys did high-fives when My Last Hostage was played.

From memory: Skateland, My Last Hostage, Charlotte St., Running Redlights, Shift Your Gaze, Mea Culpa and Houdini. They had no organ, so Epley was doing the synth from "My Last Hostage" with his voice. Man, Chris can really pound those drums!

Only played for maybe 40 minutes. Very depressed about that. Talked a little to Epley while he was helping remove their equipment. He also was disappointed in their short set, but he was extremely gracious talking about how Murder by Death was taking them around the country. After their show, talked to Chris and Eric while they sold CD's and T-Shirts. I picked up a copy of Flat End. Really nice guys. They were happy to hear that us Swervies liked them.

Murder by Death came on next. I was suprised how different they were to Life and Times. The music was pretty sparse, with a big focus on the cello and the drums. While they were on Epley came out to relieve Chris and Eric at the sales table. Again, he gushed about Murder by Death being an amazing band and how lucky they were to be out touring with them. I mentioned that L/T had a much fuller sound and seemed to focus more on sound than vocals (and that L/T should have been the headliner, not the other way around). He rebuffed my fanboy comments, saying that all the people that came out were going to see M/D, not L/T.

I stayed for the whole M/D set, but I was pretty disappointed. The singer seemed rather juvenile, jumping around the stage. I wasn't until the last song of their regular set that they started to jam. They finally were able to drown out the bass thumping from HateBreed upstairs. Their last song of the encore was a pretty good cooker, too. They played for maybe an hour. The sound guy again was consulted from the stage many times, so I guess things weren't hunky-dory from that angle.

Overall, I wish L/T could have played longer (would have loved to hear High Scores, too), but it was great seeing them. Murder By Death, I dunno. Not enough music in most of their songs and they seemed a little pretentious, especially with videos of old B&W horror flicks on the wall behind them. But maybe my focus on L/T after their show took a bit away from M/D.

Oh, and boob showed up about 3/4 of the way through M/D set. Hey boob! Hope that bite heals, man.

man thats sucks that they had to compete with a band in another part of the building! Only 40 people hey? They were pretty freaked out when i emailed them last year for a cd and a tee to be sent to australia for me. Also sucks that High Scores was left out too. Glad the personnel are cool. I figured they would be.

Thanks for sharing Boomerangatang! I appreciated it bro.

Oh, did Boob's twin show up with him?

I went and saw Tex (Perkins, front man of Beasts Of Bourbon, Cruel Sea), Don (Walker, of Cold Chisel fame) And Charlie (Owen of many Oz bands in the past)last night. Really enjoyable show. They are touring again after releasing their last LP All Is Forgiven, 13 years after they released Sad But True and toured for it in '93.

As we got there early I was able to secure a booth with an uninterupted view of the stage. It made for a very comfortable night with some moving and spine-tingling moments. I even got a bit teary during a few tracks. The Darling Downs supported them earlier and Ron Peno http://www.theage.com.au/news/Music/High-and-country/2005/03/28/1111862309960.html came out for a duet with Tex at one point - I was reminded of the amazing stuff he did with Died Pretty and his hands movements were a classic. Kim Salmon came out to play harmonica only to turn around and leave when at the end of the track it was relised that the mic hadnt been working throughout. He looked good tho. They even played a track written by Paul Kelly called Youre 39, Youre Beautiful And Youre Mine, which got me a little misty again.

I went with my closest music friends after 13 years of them raving about their last tour. I was thinking it would be ok, if not good. It was close to perfect. Only the had to find cab, sucked. See them if you can Whitewatersky and Snail etc. Very cool.

i saw them last year at the Hopetoun in Surry Hills.
grat show.
Charlie's probly my fave Aussie guitarist...

well, actually, Blackie from the Hard-Ons is the ultimate for 100% pleasure provision, but god, Charlie's guitar work on the New Christs' record Distemper is fuckin unbeatable. the tone. the ballsiness, the simple rockin-ness.

I'm hoping to catch Rogue Wave and Mazarin Dec 6 here at the Earl. It's a school night, though.

Mary My Hope/Pleasure Club singer James Hall is doing a solo show at Smith's Olde Bar this saturday night. I wish I knew what he would be playing....

The Church are on tour in Oz at the moment.
As usual I will be on hand with video camera locked and loaded.

someone asked me for some recent stuff so i bundled together what i had on the work laptop and threw it up on yousendit.com

for anyone interested, here's the post i made for that person:

here's a link from which you can download some very recent Church songs (Telepath and Maya from the 2004 album Forget Yourself), Under the Milky Way (from Starfish 1987?), and Marty doing a coupla awesome songs (Chromium which features on the Church's 2003 album After Everything Now This and You Bring Your Love To Me from his solo album Hanging Out In Heaven - I recorded this version a few years ago).

You've got a file called "04 Telepath.zip" (18316 KB) waiting for download.
Regular link (for all web browsers):
http://s27.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3QXK8QZ7OOT633TQ3JW2E45XF5

god they rooool. can't wait for the show. it's their 25th Anniversary show so it'll be great to have on video).

let me know whatcha think.
Maya and Telepath are amazing songs.
these guys have turned into a band i reallllly dig (in case you hadn't noticed)

reason i mention it is that, yeah, i always liked the Classics... i mean, STARFISH is a flawless record.

but they've changed a lot - which would possibly bug old fans - but for me, what they've done on the last coupla records is just perfect for my taste, whereas the old church stuff is not all up there in my collection.

I saw the Dandy Warhols and Out Crowd a week or two ago. For those of you that don't know, Out Crowd is Matt Hollywood's new band (he was in the Brian Jonestown Massacre, and in Dig). They reminded me of Methodrone era BJM (live any ways). I haven't heard their new album yet, so I can't say it sounds the same as it does live. You can download a few free tracks on their web site, I recommend it! Their set ended with a rockin' version of the Dylan classic, "Maggies Farm." I would go to see them headline in an instant. The Dandy's really surprised me! One hundred times better than the last time I saw them. Courtney Taylor's voice does sound a little ripped up, but the band is just great live. They played a good amount of stuff from "Dandys Rule, OK?" and the rest of their back catalog, which I was happy about! I'm not all that crazy about the last 2 albums (Monkey House and Odditorium), but I have really come to like the rest of their albums recently. Any ways, if you like them, definitely try and catch them if they pass through town.....especially if Out Crowd is opening!

Oh yeah, I also saw Echo & The Bunnymen a few weeks ago! Another great show! The new album blends well with the old classics live. The set was heavy with stuff from Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here, which was really cool. Even though it's just Ian & Will plus a few hired guns, they sound awesome. I recommend catching them too!

No more shows planned for me until Feb. when Supergrass rolls into town! Can't wait!

Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.

Hey Whitewatersky - I fairly recently bought Forget Yourself - and I think it's my favorite Church disk that I own! - but, I only have everything up through Sometime Anywhere.
I bought it on your recomendation from an earlier thread - and it makes me want everything that I have missed! It's right up my alley as far as everything that I love about music.
The 2 other songs - the live track "Chromium" and the Marty Wilson-Piper are both incredible!
Thanks again.

HOLY CRAP! Thanks James - I completely missed that one. I'll be there. After further review, Lenny's web site suggests that Sianspheric won't be playing - the other two bands are there with another band called The Blue Hour.

hmmmmmmmm..... but there is is in Red and White on the Sianspheric website. I'll think the best now and be damn excited!

For anybody in the Northeast U.S.-Rob Dickinson is coming back around in March. I saw him a couple of months ago in Boston and he knocked my socks off. He even performed some Catherine Wheel material. Aside from Elbow he was the best show I saw this fall with BRMC coming in at a close third, another band that I'm slated to see in Northampton, MA on 2/15 (They have Boston and NYC dates as well). I'm pretty sure I'm going to both the Mercury Lounge and Paradise shows.

Rob Dickinson dates:

3/1 Mercury Lounge, NYC
3/4 Paradise Lounge, Boston
3/10 Southpaw, Brooklyn

Does anyone know what the deal with the Toshack Highway tour is yet? I saw Adam play back in September at Mercury Lounge and I think I recall him mentioning doing a tour early this year, although he wasn't really promising anything.

I'm going to the Bob Pollard show at the Southgate House in Newport, KY tomorrow.

BRMC is playing at Slippery Rock Univ tomorrow, but I had to choose Bob.

Brooks and I just saw Supergrass last night at the Paradise in Boston. These guys are so underrated, just go see them!

yeah, I missed that show here in ATL in December. You also have your hometown boys playing on the 18th. Lucky Devil. I hope the Brick is alot better than the shithole I saw them in back in november. I've got Supa-grass coming in town on the 16th. I dunno - I think I'm a loud power bigot or something. They just don't do it for me.

edit: The Epley interview that guy posted about mentioned that Life and Times would be touring the east and south in May with Pelican. Isn't Pelican a bit heavy for them? Asked some question on the Pelican forums, but the tumbleweeds seem to be rolling over there...

Anybody heard them?

Pelican is usually quite heavy but their newest "The Fire in our Throats..." has a lot of melodic moments and employs the loud/soft dynamics much like Mogwai. They're the thinking man's heavy metal if you will. "Aurora Borealis" from that record is quite pretty actually. I'm not really familiar with the Life and Times so I really can't compare the two bands but Pelican's live show comes highly recommended from a friend who's seen them a couple of times. Hope that helps.

Yup! Couldn't agree more! Supergrass were awesome. I've been listening to "Only In It For The Money," and the self titled album a lot this weekend. Definately catch them if they swing through your town!

People, go see B.R.M.C live. I caught them again last night and their live show just keeps getting better and better. They played for about 2 hrs and sounded fantastic. Highly recommended.

new york friday: yeah!! got my lazy ass out on friday to finally see lolita bras. damn... missed their $2 single they sold out. the night was really good but i couldn't stay for all the bands. but it was a great line up - ?somebody?... lolita bras, mazarin, head set and baby dayliner. lolita bras reminded me of the smiths sometimes though I am not sure why. the singer is a bit dramatic.i would check out them out though if you get a chance. overall i think there a couple of you that would like them.

mazarin must be doing stuff together with lolita cause the last time i went to see lolita, mazarin were on the line up.. or it's a coincidence. shrug, but mazarin are good live, lots of good noisy guitar stuff.

i missed head set and baby dayliner but i am hearing good things on those two. hopefully i'll catch them another time.

Dino Jr are also playing in Australia next month - can't wait to see the original line up.

Saw Kings of Leon a couple of weeks back. Sounded really good but man, their appearance is a little scary - the singer looked like he was ready to bust out some Skid Row or Poison tracks: the tightest black jeans you've ever seen, a loose black singlet, clean shaven and his hair tied back in true glam-rock-ballad style!

hey dudes - Nada Surf and Rogue Wave ruled!
Personally I prefer Nada Surf - can't keep my eyes off the sweet chords...
But, Rogue Wave put on one hell of a show - stole the night imho. For one - the guys vocals are just as strong live as on disk - and for soft vocals - that is sometimes hard to pull off. For 2 - everyone in the band sang - many songs had 4 part harmonies which really sounded incredible live. And finally - every 3 songs or so the band would completely change instruments - next thing you would know - the drummer would be playing bass and the guitarist would be drumming etc.
The kicker was you never felt a defference in the quality of performance. Great musicians all around I thought. bought the first disk too - great stuff!

work couldn't have gotten shittier this month...but a friend surprised me last night with a call to go and be completely irresponsible..and see a show.. i quickly did a check only to find out that something good was on..the yeah, yeah, yeahs but were sold out. However the nice surprise was the bush tetras played a gig last night at Tonic and it was a flamin good show. The place was completely packed.

if you want to admire a couple of cool rock chicks Pat Place and Cynthia Sley must be included. She will be in my girl rock star shrine forever. I love her guitar playing she makes such a great noise all with its own personality. Cynthia Sley is equally as interesting and watchable and listenable.

Best part I was bopping right next to Steve Buscemi all night who also might be a long time fan or buddy...he grew up near where I did so maybe he was there way back when 26 years ago like me... they kept reminding us old buggers how long ago it was.

I already bought tickets to see rogue wave. I saw them a month or so ago but couldn't stay for the whole show.

Rob Dickinson was great once again. He's definitely hinting at getting Catherine Wheel back together as well. If I recall correctly the CW songs he played outnumbered the stuff from his solo record.

Was it an acoustic show? I think he is playing in Boston Saturday night. If I can, I may try and go.

hey all, dino jr on friday just gone in Sydney at the Metro..for me this gig was a winner. Very cool vibe which began with a strange but just right mix of heavy dub/ragga, indie pop type metal pre-show tunes, then J, Murph and Lou going mad on stage (ripping extended freaked out guitar solos and solid, solid unstoppable rythm section on a rampage). V cool vibe continued after show,...usually people file out after a gig. Nope!..People just hangin out talking and smiling, havin a few drinkys. Most and longest collection of dreadlocks i've seen in a while.
