      Sold out Bayonne (aka Roger Sellers) album release show tonight. Don't see a lot of solely electronic acts, but this guy is worth catching.

      All set to order a ticket for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs show here in May...only to discover that they went on sale yesterday, not today. Sold out.

        It's my own fault for not reading the details of the pre-sale closer. I was on the fence about doing pre-sale because the Mez level aren't included. I rolled the dice for the regular sale, but didn't see that it was happening Thursday instead of Friday. Oh well.

        Since I missed out on that show, I ended up getting a ticket for a Cruiserweight reunion/anniversary show in June. Not on the same level as YYY, but it will be a good time.

      I can't wait for 2/22. New Bayonne & Moving Panoramas albums are dropping that day. Another great new Moving Panoramas track in next post.

      My outdated shuffle workout playlist served up 'Obstacle 1', 'Push It' (Garbage), 'Meet Ze Monsta' & 'Debaser' in sequence tonight. Winded.

        I only kind of saw the kid out of my peripheral vision, but, since he kept staring my direction, it looked like he had some pretty thick glasses on, and a spectacular white boy fro.

      Brandi Carlile just made a lot of new fans. In a night full of massive productions, a simple but effective performance was nice.

        Only problem was that, being outside in the downtown entertainment district, there was terrible bleed over from the club next door that was playing some block rockin' beats. Lucy's softer vocal moments were kind of lost at times. Not an ideal setting for her show, to be honest.

      Neko Case was great last night, but I did miss seeing and hearing Kelly Hogan on that stage with her.

        I think that is the first Neko show since 2004 that Kelly wasn't there, and it was a noticeable absence for me performance wise. Rachel Flotard is a great replacement choice, but it felt like her mic volume was low, or she was holding back a bit.

        For those that might not be familiar with the name, Bruce is a songwriter's songwriter. This album alone includes 'Wrapped' and 'Desperately' (which became hits for George Strait), and 'Angry All The Tim' (which was a hit for Tim & Faith). This record also has 'My Brother & Me', which is a classic with his brother Charlie.

        I'm good on the phone front. She's playing Bass Concert Hall here in Austin, which is a really great theater type venue. Real classy like, y'know?

        the no phone thing definitely made the show more enjoyable, I just wish they had mentioned it to me sometime before the show...I'm not one for surprises ha

        I felt like "Velocifero" was a pretty good record. "Gravity The Seducer" had a couple of good tracks, but overall, wasn't their strongest work. I love the first half of the new one, and the last two tracks are muted, but good. The rest isn't bad, by any means, but wasn't as memorable for me.

      Not thrilled about the BOCC show in Austin moving to a larger venue. Stubb's is decent enough, but I was looking forward to a smaller crowd.

        I hear you man. I prefer to just let things be when they sell out. It's not fair to the people who purchase tickets thinking it was going to be one place and then its not. The Nashville shows was moved from a great venue to arguably my least favorite venue in Nashville. Sight lines are awful at the new venue.

        I'm waiting for the same thing to happen in Portland. Rather they just play an early all ages show at the same place also.

        Man, I hate when that happens...sucks for people who missed out on tickets first time around but also for those who scored tickets and were hoping for an intimate show. Would much rather have them add a show if the schedule allows (or do an early then late show? I saw Alt-J play a tiny club in SF that was booked before they took off so they added a 6pm show the same night)

        "So, we want to tout that their beer is now brewed with wind power. We've narrowed the music choice down to Kansas' 'Dust in the Wind', or Dylan's 'Blowin' in the Wind'. It's a toss up, really, they're both very well known songs that would be completely inappropriate choices for this spot. Let's just go with Dylan, I'm hungry".
