I’m so there if they come close to Chicago. Read it here.
I caught the Man Man/Yeasayer show last night with ayvee at the Logan Square Auditorium. Pretty disappointed.
Yeasayer showed some promise, but I guess not everything sounds good drowned in reverb. Their record is alright, but I’m left wondering what they’ll be like when they’re outdoors at Lollapalooza this summer. I guess their music sounds kind of outdoors-y. Jury’s out until then.
As for Man Man, I don’t know if I was digging the pogoing by the hipster kids in the front row. I liked the Youtube video I watched the night before the show, other than that, they didn’t really do that much for me.
Got anything to say? I encourage you to post a comment below.
P.S. I’m spinning El Guincho’s Alegranza! record right now. Gives me a definate Animal Collective vibe. Not sure if I like it yet.
So, I’ve got a ridiculous run of shows I’m going to this week. One I’m not sure about yet so I won’t post, but here it goes for tomorrow and onward.
Thursday – Bon Iver @ Lakeshore Theater
This should be a nice, intimate performance. I haven’t been to the Lakeshore Theater yet. Should be exciting.
Friday – The Hold Steady in Milwaukee at Turner Hall Ballroom (!!!!)
Cannot wait for this show. There’s going to be a ridiculous turnout for it. It will be my seventh THS show.
Saturday – Jerry Seinfeld at the Chicago Theater
