more bands to hate on me for liking
I was going to write a long post about a show Alan and I went to and how it was really good and I enjoyed it and blahbitty, blah. And I had this joke about how my ears just now stopped ringing. It was going to be funny because I was going to write it the week after the show (November 10th). But then, I was lazy for
So this show had some bands playing, but it was further enhanced by a the wasted somersaulting teenager who attended. Happily foisting a mixed drink in his x-marked hand, he took short breaks from walking into people to do somersaults on the floor. Why? I do not know why. Perhaps a failed attempt at breakdance? Most people were riding the annoyed to amused spectrum on the kid. I was mostly amused but afraid he was going to puke on me. Eventually I assume he puked on someone, probably outside, as last I saw he was making the finger-on-the-mouth puke face and running out of the club. Here's to not losing it on the dance floor; the first step to being able to hold your liquor!
Anywho, the bands I so thoroughly enjoyed were Machine Go Boom and Bears. You, should you chose not to be a loser, will also enjoy them.
RS3 gave me a Machine Go Boom cd a couple (few?) years back and I've been rockin' it ever since. MGB fit into my quirk band paradigm, which I explained whilst discussing Pixies. Bears are more of a straight-ahead kind of band (plus glockenspiel!). They have a familiar sound which I can't quite put my finger on. The gentle harmonics of a Fruit Bats, plus Shin-like arrangements plus a 60's pop subtlety.
Boy am I glad I don't write about music because that was perhaps the dumbest thing I've ever written. It's music; it's good; check it out. The end.
