I think Scott still works at Other Music

He does. I actually went into OM a few months ago, not knowing who he was, and asked him if they had Person Pitch on vinyl. I just had a hearty lol at that little cosmic wackiness.

Does anyone know what time Panda Bear is going on tonight?

Just called the box office. There will be 3 opening acts before Panda Bear tonight.

The set times are 8, 8:30, 9:30 and Panda Bear at 10:30. I'm not sure about the order of the openers.

Panda Bore. People just stood around. Didn't know whether to dance or bob their heads. But you couldnt blame them. It's not dance or rock music.

Antony from Antony and the Johnsons was there... nice guy.

Rusy Santos rocked hard... pretty nifty show overall.

Does anyone have Rusty Santos's setlist for that night? Specifically, does anyone know the title of the song which had lyrics about getting high, stoned and calling on the phone?
