Boston Symphony Pops ft. Aimee Mann

[music | The Smiths - Shakespeare's Sister]

This was really cool. The first half of the performance was the Pops doing pieces from "unconventional" composers, Bjork, Elvis Costello, and a John Williams piece.

After the intermission they had Aimee Mann with her band, backed by the Pops, which was really cool to hear. Keith Lockhart seemed really into it and it was even more impressive if you think about how they had to coordinate the arrangement with an existing tour schedule. Cool stuff.

NIN, Bauhaus, Peaches

[music | DJ?Acucrack - All Up in my Face ]

I made it back from Detroit with only a couple hours to spare to catch a nap and a shower before heading out for this one.

More PIG spiffy

[music | Throwing Muses - University ]

So last night I realized that Pig will be in Michigan 2 days after I leave to come back home for nine inch nails.

This is the Xrayspx Avoid Raymond Watts at all Costs Tour 2006.

RevCo, Ministry and, dammit, PIG!

Just got back from RevCo & Ministry show at the Palladium. RevCo sounded really really good, the sound was good, they played well, the new singer was good, and described by Luc Van Acker as "He's sexy, He's Canadian, He's Josh Bradford". The opening-opening band was Pitbull Daycare, and I think it was generally accepted that we could have done without them.

TKK + Cylab at Axis

[music | Bauhaus - She's in Parties]

LJ ate my entry from last Friday when everything was fresh. I remember being much less complementary of TKK, but I really was glad I went.

So last Friday we saw My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult and Cylab at Axis. I did this against the better judgment of Those Who Have Gone Before.

This won't be easy

The other day, I bought a CD, Orbital - In Sides. I got it home and opened it, put it in my computer to rip it, and CD1 came up as Olga Tenon - Sobrevivir. The CD is screened right, it's just the wrong music.

Been slacking on show updates

On Halloween, we saw Dresden Dolls at the Avalon. We got there way early, played a few racks at Jillians before hand, and still got in way early. Devotchka and Faun Fables opened and were all really good, and we ended up spending a lot of cash at the merch table at that show. Costumes were for the most part really cool, and everyone was better than me, since I just left from work in whatever I was wearing that day.
