how I feel

2 Mar

It’s no surprise that I feel this way, with the majority of big acts getting booked by Elko and Joker, who choose pretty lame venues and overprice tickets that are bound to sell out quickly. Honestly, I am sick of shows being in these lavish and ornate “theatres.” I want a dirty fucking club packed to the brim. No, not the lame makeshift Diesel. More Mr. Small’s, more Rex, and not in fucking Millvale.

Personally, I was really looking forward to seeing Spoon with the Walkmen and Whiterabbits again. But tickets are all sold out…and that’s okay. Because Carnegie Music Hall of Homestead makes me feel like I’m going to the opera or something. I want to stand and react to the music, not sit around like a shithead with hemorrhoids. anyway I was actually planning on posting the shows that I am attending in the near future, so I am going to get off this tirade:

3-6 // The Stills // Diesel
3-21 // Life in Bed // Gooski’s
3-22 // Man Man // Mr. Small’s
4-3 // Derek White & the Monophobics w/ the Takeover UK // Lava Lounge
4-11 // Minus the Bear // Diesel
4-12 // The Dodos // Garfield Artworks
4-17 // Iron & Wine w/ Califone // The Palace Theatre (MAYBE)
5-18 // British Sea Power w/ The Rosebuds // Mr. Small’s

In any case, just a shout out to all of you who are NOT going to the New Pornographers show on April 12th…Garfield Artworks will be hosting a fantastic show featuring the Dodos, who are seriously one of my new favorite bands. I think it’s going to be pretty awesome…and it’s 7 bucks, and not as far as Homestead. That is one good deal.
