The Spins would have been a great prefunc to TV on the Radio, but Austin still doesn't have a new venue. Nov 2, 2018

      Returned from my first overseas trip with a short stack of 90's alternative finds, my ACL wristband waiting for me, and the sick.

        seemed the easiest way to encompass The The, Erasure, Jesus Jones, Elastica, PWEI, Sonic Youth, and Curve.

      oh god. Having to choose between Justice & St. Vincent was bad enough, but ACL Fest just switched Annie & Sylvan Esso's time slots.

        That was the original plan, @blfy, because I've got the W2 pass. Now ACL has swapped St Vincent with Sylvan Esso. I'll get to see St Vincent, but the late night show for Sylvan is against Macca that Friday night. oh well, I knew there were going to be casualties.

      Okay, I got crickets in response to my request for London record store recs. I expect to get laughter for asking the same about Kiev...

        I have a friend living in Ukraine for the last year or so. Not a vinyl collector, but his descriptions of Kiev wouldn’t make me especially hopeful for you.

      Freaked out that I'd found a copy of "Airs Above Your Station" while digging 'til I realized it only had one of two records in the gatefold.

      What is cut off date to sign up and get the AOTM? The 2nd of the month? I can't seem to find that info on the website.

        I was for a year on two 6-month tours. Let my renewal lapse and then TVOTR was announced. I tried to go back in and reactivate my 6-month. Wasn't an option.

        I emailed info@ and ten days ago Pauly said they'd get the tech team to re-up me. Follow up requests for status have gone unanswered.

        I was concerned that tomorrow might be the cutoff. I also would like to buy some things in the store, but cannot, so of course FOMO is in high gear.

      Re-upped for another 6 months with VMP, two weeks in Portland, and the Austin Record Store Crawl. I've fallen off the vinyl diet hard.

      Didn't renew last month as nothing piqued my interest. Now an embarrassment of riches! Sheepishly asking for my 6 month sub back.

        Yeah, cancelling was a tough decision for me. And since I'd have to pay the new, higher rate to sign up, that decreases my chances of rejoining.

        I suppose I'll just have to watch from afar.

        Yes, it was at the Toyota Center. We were pretty much across from the tip of her heart shaped walkway. Great view of her wire work. It was an awesome show with acrobatics and pyrotechnics and the kid can barely speak for all the screaming she did.

        @geistvox nice! I wanted to go, but had David Byrne tix for Saturday and 2 shows over 2 days is a bit too much for me. Plus I've got Jack White tonight

        Hard choices. Our daughter's first choir performance was the same night as Dolly Parton or Leslie Rankine (Ruby) 's first US tour in decades. Kid won. Have fun at Jack White!

      Store won't let me buy an album because I bought it previously, rec'd wrong item, and was given a refund instead of replace. Now locked out!

        @PaulyB You made sense. Previously what did not make sense was the album still being up for sale, allowing everyone but me to order a potentially wrong version. ;D So if SC confirms some red+black, can I get first crack? I adore the look of that variant!

        @PaulyB it's not all black. Mine came in as the right variant, so it must have been a mixed batch.
