yes.

and yeah, total PBR fest. I'd venture that 1 in every 1.5 people there drank nothing but PBR.

I had Hoppyum and High Life.

which is why I got sick twice last night.

super fun show though.

Caught up with FI before the Berkeley Gig. They had to leave W.V. at 6:30 a.m. to make the performance slot, but they were still awesome and in high spirits. Enjoy.

Yeah we were definitely wondering if the singer/guitarist in the black shirt was a female or a very effeminate male. It was an incredible show for $8. My first time hitting that venue; perfect size for seeing those bands.


On a side note it looks like Glossary is playing there on the 19th. Anyone who gets the chance needs to go see them as well.

the sound was not great for whatever brains, but they ruled as per usual

lower dens were AMAZING, holy shit

and the girl (jana) paid me for an amp that william borrowed from me in 2003, totally unexpected and awesome

LW and FI killed it as expected

also i realized much later that my speech about hopscotch tickets made very little sense

there were dudes in rainbow flip flops talking shit about your shirt. it was hard to bite my tongue

also, your speech was the second best one of the night. the winner was "whoever has a green Mazda/Nissan/whatever and parked in the back, your car got broken into"

they could have been anywhere and I would have laughed at them, I didn't care that they were at the show

the point was, dudes in rainbows shouldn't be making fun of others for what they're wearing

The point is, dudes in Admiral Ackbar shirts (entertaining as they may be) shouldn't be making fun of others for what they're wearing.

^ that

i don't care who wears rainbows, but you gotta be nuts to wear flip flops to a show between getting stepped on, the beer/dirt mixing on the floor, and broken glass

rich is in whatever brains.

Wearing flip flops or any other flimsy foot protecting apparatus to a crowded place is a bad idea. Especially when you try to cut me in line at the bar.


Also, I'm sorry rich.

good show tonight. the bass player (william?) is even better live. played most of the new album, "in the fall", and encored with "beach foam" and "little dreamer".

^^ the pitchfork review (though it's more of a weird bio than a review) compares him directly to peter hook. he's gonna flip.

it reads like the reviews i wrote for a shitty website in 2001

grayson's was much better, and i'm not saying that because it was more positive

there's really not a bit of criticism in that p4k review, positive or negative

it's painfully obvious that he picked a number after one listen and then completely bullshitted the review

and unlike raleigh, most shows in CH kinda almost start on time.

still, FI probably won't go on until 12:30 or 1

NPP have a ton of setup time but EAR PWR have almost none, etc. etc.

it sold out just as EAR PWR was going on, which is pretty insane

there were 160+ presales

it was immensely crowded...fire marshal showed up and i was afraid we were gonna get nixed

kudos to the 506 staff for handling the situation

great show, sorry you missed it

BOY THAT WAS FUN AND PACKED AND HOT.

Photos coming tomorrow.

Although the lighting was brutal.

2 clamp lights, 1 orange, 1 blue, mostly alternating which one was on, haha.

THANKS VINYL I LIKE THIS AMP A LOT



I was unaware of the fire marshal stuff, damn.

I wish they'd come up here, they are a good bit awesome. I'm jamming on synth with a bass player and a drummer and FI is sort of our model. fun stuff.

Bweez, you're an excellent photographer. Seriously, every time you put your work on here, I'm very impressed.

Didn't you put some pictures up from Bonnaroo, too? Wasn't that you? Those were really good.
