Ah, excellent, I'm seeing them this Wednesday.

this Tuesday there are three pretty awesome shows...and I can only pick one.

Mark Eitzel @ the Lizard Lounge
Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigby @ TT's
Mark Burgess @ Hennessey's

Based on the venues I'd say Eitzel & Wreckless Eric.  Based on the artists I'd say Wreckless Eric.

Yeah, I don't know any of the artists, but it takes serious love for me to venture into the Faneuil bar scene (Hennessey's). Tuesday might not be that bad, but then again, it's summer, so ugh.

after day 3 of the Homegrown Fest, i was starving and the only late night option for food is Chinatown...driving down the bar scene @ Boylston when the clubs got out was a freakin' riot, sight-wise.

i don't think Hennessey's will too bad on tuesday... and even if it is outside, it won't be inside.

oh my....ATP/NY just got even better....a friend sent on word that Boris will be playing _Feedbacker_ in its entirety...my favorite record of theirs by far. 

i would think that this means they are back to a three piece, but that's ok.

holy christ...the Burgess show was epic.  i've seen a TON of shows in my life, and this was way way up there.

marty willson-piper drove up from new jersey and played on 'splitting in two.'  that's the kind of show i'm talking about.

Well, I'm not sure how I feel about this one, but SunnO))) is playing a show at the Seney Stovall Chapel in Athens, which is an awesome idea, I think because that chapel is an awesome place and will probably have great sound and plus it'll probably look cool as shit, but I think SunnO))) is B-O-R-I-N-G.

Should I go to a show knowing I do not like the music that will be played just because the venue/artist match-up is interesting to me? 

More photos of the chapel here.

Jason Lyttle is opening for Neko Case this Sunday and I'm looking forward to that.  Haven't seen him live since I saw Grandaddy open for Elliot Smith back in the day.

For one thing, I think it might be more interesting of a musical event in that environment than when you're sitting around at home. For another thing, they might get in an onstage fight like they did that time when Alex saw them a couple of years ago and start trashing each other's equipment again. That'd be worth seeing, right?

I think you should at least consider it.

August might be bookended by these two exciting shows, provided I feel up to driving a little on those days:

Aug 1 - Kammerflimmer Kollektiev in Karlsruhe
Aug 28 - Carla Bozulich + Fred Frith in Mulhouse

Alex as in me? 'Cause I saw them a couple of years ago (in a church, no less), and was very impressed, but I'm pretty sure that no equipment-trashing was involved (my report seems to have been lost in the server crash, though). I came into already liking Sunn O))), so I can't speak for the conversion powers of seeing them live, but I do agree with Andrew that they're more suited to live performances than to living room listening -- just something about the feeling of being crushed by soundwaves that you can't very well replicate at home. (Of course, most of my usual concert-going/music listening tends to be more on the soft side, which isn't true for Robert, so what do I know.)

Frightened Rabbit. July 25. I'm pumped.

Oh hey, me too!

You kids will have fun, they were great here last night. Sold out house full of singer-alongers and merry makers, singing along and making merry.

Also, if you can, try to turn up early enough for Antlers, they're still opening the show in Massachusetts. They were pretty good with several moments of very goodness. And also a good match with Frightened Rabbit.

Neko Case is playing a free show here tonight, outside, as part of Buffalo's "Thursday in the Square" series.  I love Neko Case, but I've also been to "the Square," which is like a large frat party (it's like 10,000 people crammed into a pretty small park downtown), where plastic cups of Labatt Blue are like $5, and you're guaranteed to see at least 3 fights (a conservative estimate, in my experience). 

Alas, I will not be seeing Neko Case tonight.

That's too bad, passing up free stuff is always tragic.

Next free gig for me is next week, a review (I guess that's what it is) called "Jamaica to Toronto". It's a bunch of soul/ska/reggae/rocksteady guys who ditched Kingston for Toronto in the sixties and seventies, worked here for a while and then not for a very long time, and then maybe two years ago got together for a one-off show that has turned into a periodic thing - this is maybe the third or fourth show they've done. Each of the past shows I've had to miss but was sad about it, so I'm excited about checking them out this time. Also, free!

Indeed.  It's also pouring rain here and my girlfriend's birthday today, so these things will keep me happy at home.

Yeah, I saw Cake under similar circumstances--a free show put on by the local alt rock station.  It was like going to an off-campus party you weren't explicitly invited to, but was big enough to warrant a visit--getting there and finding no one you knew and instead hanging around the dipshits you haven't seen since they dropped out of your freshmen core classes.

I didn't go back to see Spoon the next week.

In my ten days out of town this month, I missed seeing Mission of Burma & Magnolia Electric Company for free within a twenty minute walk of my apartment. Kind bummed about that.

Oh, it wasn't you that saw that Sunn 0))) show where they got in a fight? Did someone else on here see it, or did I read about that somewhere else? Damn. I guess I'll never know now. Oops.

Also, ella, you threw me for a minute there, but it's THE Antlers who are opening for Frightened Rabbit. Just plain Antlers are from Richmond and are friends of mine, and I was like, "I saw Wolfgang at a show two nights ago, I really don't think they're on tour right now." Sure enough, nope, the band playing with Frightened Rabbit is some Brooklyn band.

So, Leonard fucking Cohen is coming to Nashville and I'm freaking out slightly.  On his last tour, my friend and I were all ready to make the road trip from here to Chicago just to see Cohen, but couldn't due to stupid circumstances, and now he's coming to us!!!

I just hope I can get good seats.  I'll prolly just pay some ungodly amount for tix on Craigslist or something.

I really really want to see the Antlers.  I only know their latest album, Hospice but it is a stunner.  Parts remind me of old Low, except that Low didn't shift/build into showers of overpowering shoegaze and noise.

I would be upset that they weren't opening for Frightened Rabbit at the show near here but (a) I might not be able to go because it is in Tucson and on a Tuesday and (b) the fucking Twilight Sad are opening that show.
