The boat show last Friday was pretty sick. Tyvek was the first band and we watched them for a little bit. They were decent. We skipped the next band who was kind of like a deep house synthy band so that we could hang out on the top deck. Preoccupations were next and I was pretty stoked to see them, but honestly they sounded like shit. I don't think of them as a noise band, but they definitely wanted to be that night. Half the show they weren't even "playing" just being loud with no structure. I stuck around long enough to watch them play Bunker Buster then bailed back to the top deck which was honestly a lot more fun. They had DJs spinning records up there. People watching was great too. METZ was next and they kicked ass. Great show and they sounded a lot better than the previous bands. They played almost all the songs I wanted to hear. The only bummer was that the stage was really low and I couldn't see the drummer.  We ended up leaving after their set, which I sort of felt bad about because we missed Protomartyr, and they were the ones headlining the whole thing, but I've never been a huge fan of theirs. The main reason we left was because it was 11:30 and neither me or my wife had eaten anything since breakfast. Overall, it was definitely worth $20 to see METZ and ride the boat around.

saw the Melvins a night ago.  even though I don't love the new album, the new songs were so much better 'live'.  I generally think they are a waaaay better live band than studio band (except for Senile Animal...that is the best sound production on a melvins album)

A friend of mine recently gave me his copy of Senile Animal, and it quickly became my new favorite Melvins record. I'm not as well acquainted with their new material, but I'm a big fan and they're a fun band to see whether you know everything or don't. I think I told this story already, but they played here in July but got shut down right before they were gonna play Hung Bunny. :(





On the complete opposite spectrum, I saw Paul McCartney last night with my parents. Like pretty much everyone, The Beatles were basically my introduction to music as a whole when I was super young, so it goes without say that seeing Paul was a real goddamn treat. We were on the main floor too which was absurdly expensive, but my dad has been a huge fan his whole life so he insisted on getting good seats.

I hope. They haven't played in Detroit in a few years. The best options i had were Cleveland, Chicago, or Toronto and it's just been too busy of a year for me to leave for the weekend and spend the money to stay somewhere.

I get three paychecks next month.  Planning on seeing Buzzoven, Mayhem and Crowbar in November.  I hope these pan out.

Edit: And Unsane just announced a tour in December.  I'll hit that up as well.

Saw the Pixies on Friday. I know some fans might be turned off by Kim no longer playing with the band, but Charles, Joey and David still put on a hell of a show. They played for almost two hours straight with no breaks in between songs. They all sounded amazing and it was one of the cleanest sounding live shows I've ever heard. You could hear everything crystal clear.

I had looked up some youtube shows from this tour and honestly I was a little underwhelmed by the energy of the shows, so going into it I was almost expecting to be let down, but they really did give it their all and I'm really happy I got to see them. They opened with Wave of Mutilation and ended with a slower shortened version of the same song before playing Bone Machine as their encore. My only bit of criticism was that they played too many songs off the new album which I didn't care for. I would've loved the hear U-Mass, Mr. Grieves, No. 13 or Gigantic (I knew they weren't going to play that one) instead of the songs from Head Carrier. They did play Crackity Jones though and I wasn't sure if they would.

Great show though. My wife bought me a Black Francis Coffee mug too.

I'm going to Vegas for work next month and you best your asses I'm going to see Billy Idol.

Saw Billy last week at the house of blues inside mandalay bay. If you've never been to vegas before, it's located towards the end of the strip and I don't know how it was before the shooting, but the place was totally empty compared to the other end. Hardly anyone in the casino or any of the bars outside the venue we were in.

Anyway, the show was decent. It was a really small venue so we had a great view. I don't know how old Billy is, but he looked like he had about 2 hours of makeup done before the show. There were a few points I thought he might have been lip syncing, but he gave a good performance. Steve Stevens looks absolutely hilarious in his old age because he's still dressing like its 1983. He's a serious shredder, but nobody needs to do as many guitar solos as he did. Probably the biggest showboater I've ever seen, but he was entertaining. My wife and I were probably the youngest people there, but the crowd was better than some of the young crowds I'm in with the newer bands I see.  Whole thing was pretty fun and I enjoyed myself, but it wasn't a show I would ever take seriously and that's fine.

Yea I went to the Hollywood Bowl show and I felt like I was in a crowd of corpses. Nobody really got stoked until some Smiths songs were played. What was even better was seeing all the sad faces watching the video that played during Meat is Murder, followed by those same sad faces getting bacon wrapped hot dogs after the show. Other than that it was a great show, I got hyped when he played Speedway

Seeing Jeff Rosenstock w/ Lemuria and Roar next month, followed by Touche Amore/La Dispute the following night. Valentines Day week is going to be so busy with awesome stuff I won't even care that I'm lonely as shit.

that new album that surprise dropped was really really rad. Lemuria also rips.

Seeing Alvvays tonight. Got free tickets and I don't hate them, so I can't complain.

I want to see these fuckers so bad. That first album is on heavy repeat for me.

I have given Metz so many chances and literally don't understand why people like them.

i dont think metz is the most original or interesting band out there, but i think they do a good job at being loud and heavy. im not a big fan of hardcore or any kind of metal, so when i want something thats heavy metz does the trick because they're pretty straight to the point and they stick to pretty basic rock song structures. you know exactly what you're getting when you put on a metz record, and i like that about them.

Slowdive. They were amazing, very happy with their setlist. They played a couple of newer songs I haven't heard, but the rest was flawless. One of the best shows I've been to.

seeing John Maus tonight, on a whim, i dig some of his songs... but don't really know what they'd be like in a live setting. whatever, only 13 bucks. stoked.
