Pogues at Avalon. Perfect time of year to see a band I've wanted to see since I was old enough to care about decent music. Every 6 months there is another report about how Shane MacGowan should be deader than Keith Richards, and I always worried I'd never get my chance to see this.
Everyone should check out Baby Rock Records "Rockabye Baby!" instrumental re-interpretations of modern rock artists. We have the Tool one and just got the Nine Inch Nails one today. They're super creepy (especially the Tool CD). We don't have kids. I guess that makes us creepy too.
Well, I haven't felt like that big a dork in quite a while...
...and I'm a pretty big dork.
Show was about what I expected, music wise. It was way too treble heavy though, which kind of bugged me.
One thing I didn't expect was the crowd. I guess I didn't really know what to expect, but it was the most polite, well behaved, tidy, obedient bunch of folks I've ever been around at a show. Maybe, maybe Rasputina, when they made us all sit on the floor so everyone could see, could even come close.
