Yo, it'd be dope if we could get that line-up for a non-CMJ show.

i saw deerhunter at the

i assume everybody who rants and raves about being "blown away" by deerhunter live are just illuminating their mastery of the obvious pun??

So are No Age not playing the Sub Pop showcase?

i just want to see no age. i'm just amazed at how fast they blew up. i was hoping they'd be playing trash bar or some place as equally small and/or obnoxious. oh well.

in response to 4:06 anonymous. Deerhunter killed it last time they were at bowery, but that was back when they were a 5some. Bradford worked it as an EmCee, back then but they have yet to develop a swagger when he's behind a guitar. Personally, as a fan, I miss the wall of sound shit. I miss the feeling of not worrying about whether it's gonna sound totally massive. I saw the southstreet show and had a similar reaction: tenterhooks. Some people say the thinner sound is better. That's an interesting argument. One thing that came through at the southstreet show is how strong deerhunter's rhythm section is.

Fuckin' Stardeath! Sweet mother of God, my life is complete.

Deerhunter at the Seaport bored me to tears. And their rhythm section is metronomically trite. I sincerely doubt that an additional guitarist and a frontman with nothing to do but dedicate himself to his vocal loops would have made much difference.
Occasionally I am wrong.

The Seaport show = not great but I feel like since they just lost the member and they seemed quite nervous (who wouldn't be opening for BATTLES?), they were just off. And No Age KILLS it everytime.

how about that moshpit for Battles though? I thought I was at Korn or something. Big bold Russian guy and his girlfriend (I think) who repeatedly tried to crowd surf. She was pretty cute.

How about the crazy long haired kid doing spinning kicks to the face and punches to the groin?
