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.
In the weeks leading up to Friday night I was faced with a problem. Two bands I really wanted to see, in the same VENUE on the same NIGHT. The Pearl St upstairs had Gang of Four, downstairs had Rasputina. No matter which we picked I would feel retarded. My wife wouldn't have anything to do with the decision, so I picked Rasputina. The way I figure it, well, I still don't have a good explanation.
