Damn that's awesome, super jealous. They're one of my favorites, and I actually had tickets to see them in Philly a couple months back, but got the nights mixed up and missed the show. Genuinely one of my bigger regrets.

I really like A Silver Mount Zion too, though they seem polarizing within the GYBE! fanbase.
And I enjoyed Efrim's solo album, as well

ah man, that's a shame you missed them...

new unreleased material sounds as good as, if not better than anything they've ever done. they definitely put more effort into playing their newer tunes.

Saw Besta yesterday and it was amazing as always, true madness. It was a free show and the venue was full. The singer was spitting to the air so much that stalactites of spit started to form and dripping in his hair and body. It was metal as fuck. Haha

Probably not a huge hit with those who frequent this forum (aside from those who've posted in the country thread), but I saw this dude play this album in its entirety this week:

He sounded awesome, his pedal steel player was insane, and he brought out Robert Earl Keene for a couple songs.

Saw Animal Collective in Philly last weekend. They put on an awesome show but they played a bit too much of their new stuff which Im not that into. They did play Alvin Row for the first time ever though, so that was really tight.

yeah i saw them in nyc last week. theyve only been playing their newest tracks when they've played live in past years. last time i saw them they played all of centipede, summertime clothes, did you see the words, and purple bottle (a real treat). i think the only ones they played that weren't on the new album were daily routine, bees, and loch raven. apparently they did a cover too but i had no clue what it was.

DAMN "loch raven" would have been amazing to see live

I'd be mad if I went to see them and they just played a bunch of "centipede" stuff

"Words" and "purple bottle" must have been great tho

I think I've seen mostly mediocre reviews of the new album. It's not the best, but overall I like it, and there's a few standout tracks.
I think it's so dumb they used that "floridada" song as their lead single tho, sounds like some annoying lame Beach Boys shit

I have Animal Collective's entire discography and love every single album and song they've put out, up until these last two albums. When I was using psychedelics heavily I was obsessed with them. Even now, being sober for many years they're still one of my favorite bands. I can still listen to their extremely weird noise albums and get into it.

Once I heard Centipede Hz I started getting bummed on their sound...it just didn't sound like AnCo to me. When I read they were coming out with a new album, I was stoked and thought this would maybe be their 'redemption' from Centipede. Boy was I wrong, I could barely make it through Painting With. If it wasn't for their recognizable voices I would think I was listening to a completely different band. Without them actually being creative and getting weird, using tons of unique samples and sounds, their appeal just seems to evaporate into thin air. I kinda feel like it's never going to be good from here on out, and it pains me to say that because they...were...such an amazing band.

Saw Deafheaven about 2h ago.
Myrkur was the opening band, meh show.. Songs are not bad and the Girl can sing (her growls are terrible tho) but all just felt so forced. She seams really shy too.
Deafheaven was perfect. Amazing show, everything played so well... They played all new bermuda songs then sunbather and dream house. George Clarke is a such a great front man, so much passion on his performance. People were having fun stage diving too. Great show/night!

If anyone is in Philadelphia on June 3rd, Modern English will be playing at Johnny Brenda's with Dark Blue.

I could not be more stoked, as Modern English is fantastic, as Mesh And Lace is a solid album from start to finish. True post-punk.

And Dark Blue always delivers, as they have acquired an exquisite formula to creating superior music, often nodding to Roxy Music, Blitz (Second Empire Justice), and John Cale.

I caught Deafheaven at a free show they did in Toronto for some Converse thing a little over a year ago. They played great, but goddamn the crowd was a bummer. Total Pitchfork crowd who were all way too cool to show any sense of enjoyment. People against the stage looked like they were waiting for a bus.

I was expecting only newer songs, then he played this one:

i feel like this is how just about every show i go to is like. im such a boring mellow person every day, but when i go to a show i cant hold anything back. you cant go see a rock and roll show and just stand there looking like youre waiting for the bus. thats fucking lame. its the worst when the crowd is so boring that the band gets upset and gives a mediocre performance. some people dont understand that a concert is an interaction between the band and the crowd. show some fucking excitement and appreciation for what these bands do.


anyway, i just saw iggy and josh homme last night and that was incredible. probably the show ive been host hyped about my entire life and they fucking killed it. ive seen the stooges and qotsa and i think this show topped them all. the crowd was mostly older people, so not much rocking out from the crowd, but we delivered on cheers and hand claps. they played pretty much everything off the new album, a few good ones off the idiot and just about everything off lust for life which i wasnt really expecting more than the passenger, success and lust for life. they played sixteen like third song in and i totally lost it. during the encore they played fall in love with me, which i didnt expect at all. everything was amazing and im so happy that i got to see it. and ive never really been a fan of the song nightclubbing, but holy shit did they kill that song. the best ive ever heard it without a doubt. the only thing that was a bummer was that my dad was supposed to go with me, but couldnt because he broke his ankle last week, and that they didnt play any stooges songs. the songs from lust for life definitely made up for it though, and im super stoked that my fiancee got to come with me and see it. she bought me dinner, an album, and a shirt too.

still so stoked on that show. not having a very fun time at work right now though.

AJJ are one of my faves. Sean Bonnette is playing a solo show here soon that I wanna try and go to.


Saw The Suicide Machines a couple weeks ago play a benefit show for the water crisis in Flint. It was the smallest venue I've ever seen them play.

I was in Detroit for work and went and saw Joe Satriani last night. Pretty fucking awesome. Melt Banana/Melvins/Napalm Death next Saturday. I've seen all 3 multiple times and they all kill it live, so when I saw all 3 on the same bill I was fucking stoked. Mutoid Man/Sweet Cobra on Sunday in Chicago.

Like I said, none of them ever disappoint. To be honest I've never seen Mutoid Man. I've known all 3 of them personally for years and love the records, so figure that one out.

Also, apparently Converge is playing "Jane Doe" in its entirety at Roadburn tomorrow. I was debating taking out some of my savings to fly to the Netherlands to go, but ultimately (and probably wisely) decided against it.
