    The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (LAGQ) had a concert here a few days ago... damn, those two hours flew by. These guys are really pushing the limits of pure acoustic guitar.

    Speaking of crazy good, I just got back from what must be the best live act I've seen in ten years or more: Pink Martini.



    Has anybody heard of these guys? Take some big band jazz, sprinkle on a generous portion of latin rhumba, cha-cha, cumbia, bassanova, tango, season with a touch of flamenco, and you're getting there. Top with a bit of kitcsh while you're at it too.

    Boy, these guys can play the shit out of their instruments. And that goes for the singer too. She has the pipes and she sure knows how to use them. Oh, and over the course of the evening, she sung in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Russian, Arabic, French, Japanese, and a few other languages I've surely forgotten.

    So I decided to go to the Boredoms tonight on a whim. Gonna get really stoned beforehand too. And a friend says she can get me a ticket to a Health/Dan Deacon show on Tuesday and Then maybe Crystal Castles again with the Cool Kids on Thursday.

    This is why I love being in college.

    Free Super Furry Animals show at Amoeba Thursday.
    But really excited about seeing Kid Koala, Cut Chemist, and DJ Shadow next Friday.
    Wow. Talk about a DJ-aficionado's wet dream.

    Bought my ticket to Coachella today. I've always wanted to go, but never got to so I'm pretty excited.

    I got tickets for Dirty Projects and Sunset Rubdown.

    Has anyone here seen Mt. Eerie and/or Of Montreal perform?
    There's a possibility I'll go see them as well.

    I've seen Of Montreal and it is a must-see show, even if you don't like the music. Kevin Barnes has a Bowie-like persona thing, and they have props-a-plenty.

    Have you seen Ween before?

    One of the best live acts I've ever seen.

    Mind blowing.

    Never. I wouldn't've got the tickets if it wasn't for Thirdmango, who lives in Boston, who is coming down. He's a total Weenhead. I like them, but not $45/ticket like. However, your rave is encouraging and I'm very excited.

    I've seen em 5 times, and 4 of those times they were awesome.

    One time they played for over 3 hours - it was incredible.

    Dean and Gene are awesome musicians and performers.

    Bought my ticket to The Roots the other day, cannot wait, if it is even a fraction as great as the last time I saw them, I will be happy.

    yeah, good call...I saw Of Montreal about a year ago and he came out wearing a wedding dress and proposed to the audience. It was quite ridiculous...and of course there is the infamous nude performance.

    Ha, Of Montreal sounds entertaining.

    The reason I'm hesitant is because I'm not sure how long their set is. They're part of a group that is performing that night.
    I don't care much about those either: I'm From Barcelona & Two Gallants.

    But I'll keep it in mind. Depends on how much money I have left in may.

    Usually the structure is 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour + encore for that type of show, depending on the venue and ticket prices you could get more or less for your money.

    Yeah, I've been to a similar gig in this venue.
    It's just that I don't know if Of Montreal is the headliner or not. I suspect it's I'm From Barcelona, as they're bigger here.

    I've tried e-mailing the place, but they had no idea either.

    Really? I can't imagine I'm From Barcelona headlining over Of Montreal? Where are you from?

    From Belgium.

    We're From Barcelona was a huge hit over here, while Of Montreal still goes by unnoticed.
