I feel like I'd like them a lot more live than I do recorded. I bet it's a fun ass show.

^^ it was at nightlight

the sound is always fucking terrible there

because they don't feel the need to have anyone stand at the board during the show

pisses me off like crazy

also, they're the only local club that charges more than $1 for membership

pretty sure the reservoir and the local 506 costs $5 too...

not counting the clubs that don't have live music regularly.

shows are free, and the sound is always awesome. ive seen a lot of great shows there. but you have to be a member or go with one on a night with a show.

oh yeah, and the cave? thats a finsky too.

if shows are free then i'm not going to complain about $5 membership

i've been to three shows at the cave and never been asked for membership, so i didn't know what it cost there

this just goes to show that carrboro is awesome and chapel hill sucks

Is that show at the Berkley sold out?


Where in the fuck do I buy tickets?

At the door when you show up.

The only two etix listings for the Berkeley are blues shows, and they're both after FI so I assume they won't be doing advance sales.

It'll be crowded, but it shouldn't sell out. Just show up on time (because the show won't start on time) and you'll be fine.

I know a guy who uses "I'm best friends with Future Islands" as some sort of pick up line. He also hits women and is perpetually unemployed.

I'm looking forward to the May 4th show.

I barely know them (and by know, I mean recognizing each other from seeing them 10+ times), but one time during a show some asshole wouldn't stop shouting song titles at them during their set and I had to say "look you assholes, I know these dudes a little bit, and I know they don't like being shouted at like they are a fucking karaoke band, so cut the shit"

I like In Evening Air a lot, and the show at the Berkley will be the first time I've seen them.

The lead singer looks like Nathan Lane in the video for for "the happiness of being twice".

the piano

and a dry, unamplified vocal

i'm sure they would've used a standup bass had one been available

--

also, you can preorder the album here: http://www.thrilljockey.com/catalog/?id=104666

$13 for cd or lp (first 1000 LPs are translucent orange that goes with the blue of in the fall)
$20 gets you either format plus a pretty cool shirt that william's girlfriend designed

Got my shizz and T-shirt earlier this week.

Dank as hell on vinyl. Absolutely gorgeous.

On a side note, the band will perform four or five songs live on Sessions at Studio B before their Berkeley gig on Tuesday. Check out the performance at 4 p.m. on http://music.mync.com

There's already 150-some people confirmed on their facebook page... Not sure how many people the place will hold, but I'd guess the facebook fans will still be a small portion of those in attendance

I'm intoxicated, sorry for the ramble.


Me and my buddy were the first one's there at around 8:30; thought we were late, turns out we were early. Talked to the bands for a while while waiting for the doors to open, only had us and 5 others there when they did. Went inside, got our beverages, and left the bar just in time for a horde to come in. The first band (forgot who it was) sucked imo, but I don't like that loud punk bad musicianship B.S. We hit up the park across the street for a while and took a walk. Next two bands were pretty damn good; was too buzzed to remember most of them. Future Islands was incredible, hung out for at least half the set before my friend had to shoot back to Greenville. All in all good times; except for the first band; wanted to stab myself in the ear with them. No offense meant; I know a lot of people there were into it.


Also, there was a hell of a lot of androgyny going on during the show. I couldn't discriminate genders without a close inspection of mounds after a while. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing. Also, the hipster level was high. I saw more Pabst cans around than should be legal at any event.


Again, apologies for the rant; if anyone bothered to read this that is; I'm a bit less than sober atm. Good show though overall.

you just mad you couldnt tell that lead singer was a girl.



that first band I probably would've liked if the sound hadn't been so shit.


FI were good, and for $8 I don't think I've seen a better show.

Didn't get to hear every band, but caught Lonnie Walker and Future Islands. Both bands killed it. I had a great time
