Gig Tonight

For the past 6.5 years, my live music going has been a virtual vacuum.

Tonight, for the first time since before 9/11, I am going to a gig.

The tickets were cheap, I got permission from the wife, and the child should be in bed before I go. And all I had to do was buy scrapbook supplies and pizza to appease the benevolent dictator.

The last show I went to was Dave Matthews Band in 2001. Tonight I will be seeing The Fiery Furnaces, indie electronica band that pushes the experimental envelope, should be interesting to say the least. They have been highly recommended by BBC Radio 6 Music's Marc Riley's Brain Surgery, so I thought I'd give it a go. The Brain Surgery also suggested Thomas Tantrum whom I adore. I don't know what that says about my taste in music, but Robert's your father's brother. Now how to ask the benevolent dictator that I want to go to the Neko Case gig next week...

Have another video.

Dude, you keep making cracks about your wife's cooking and calling her a dictator and you'll end up living in a van down by the river.

Have a great time, man!

How was the show? More pizza + more scrapbooking supplies = Case gig?
