HOLY SHIT!!!!!!! Is this real? I totally just creamed my pants. Greatest. Bill. Ever.

Posted by rocked the shit | May 13, 2008 2:38 PM

Now, that is worth paying any price to see.

GODHEAD! i was playing this record on the radio when it came out. best - fucking - news - all - week !

wow that is one sick bill. I wish i wasn't gonna be out of town that week.

Posted by pls | May 13, 2008 2:48 PM

What a ridiculous lineup. Need to see this.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 2:48 PM

Bahahahahaha I am so glad i got a ticket for ATP. Hahaha enjoy MBV at shit ass Roseland and this bill at the dreck known as Terminal 5. Oh yeah Dinosaur Jr and Built to Spill blasting away at that shithouse is gonna sound just divine.
ATP is just looking so much more worth it plus they are still to add about 8 more bands to the lineup.

Wow. I felt good about myself until the anonymous internet toughguy above pointed out how much better he is than me.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 2:53 PM

i dunno...3 days with people like anon 2:48 at the shitty kutschers kountry klub really sounds like a great time.

ill definitely be at terminal 5 for this. perfect from now on is such a great album.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 2:57 PM

I'm still looking forward to ATP notwithstanding anon 2:48.

I think I might have to go to one of these Interminable 5 shows as well. BTS rules.

Posted by Dan | May 13, 2008 3:00 PM

Don't sell anon 2:48 short. I've got a Buddy Hackett bootleg from Kutschers that sounds amazing. Crystal fucking clear.

$$$$$$$anon 2:48 goes to nyu and plays in a joy division cover band called cha-ching $$$$$$$$$$$$$

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 3:10 PM

I am Anon 2:48 and attack all you want. You know that the ATP shows will be better and SOUND better than Roseland and Terminal 5. Hell, a guy standing on a busy street corner playing a 78 on a Victrola would sound better.

But keep attacking me to try and make yourself feel better about this.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 3:11 PM

Yeah, this is awesome and I'm in. But, 2 nights at Term5? That seems a bit oversized. BTS usually do their Irving Plaza shows. And I don't think Dino Jr. + Meat Puppets even sold out Rebel and Lions Den respectively last time around. I predict another 1/2 price sale in September.

Posted by Commuter | May 13, 2008 3:12 PM

tix are $32...not $50-75 like the verve.

id pay $30 to hear perfect from now on, $20 to hear dinosaur these days, and $12 to see meat puppets...$20 to hear II in full.

hahaha. agreed! i would see bts in the shittiest of venues if only to avoid assholes like that.

I sometimes wonder if anyone who reads this site actually likes music at all.

All anyone tries to do is one up each other. Who knows more, who goes to the hot bands show. It's all very childish.

Posted by Michael | May 13, 2008 3:23 PM

the comments are getting out of control but so called underground music is split these days like never before.

you have the dance rock stuff with kids wearing orange pants, you have the indie rock lite stuff that is pretty much the warrant and trixter of our times, you have the old school fans that hate everything new...we all go here and bitch.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 3:26 PM

This is the best news I’ve ever heard – favorite band playing favorite album. Any price would be worth it. But I can’t say I understand the Terminal 5 placement. Don’t make no sense.

Posted by Liz | May 13, 2008 3:33 PM

I wish someelse curated the atp festival.(like me!) all those bands playing besides a couple are rather dull and all sound the same.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 3:33 PM

Yeah bitching is ok. Where better to do it on a blog than in person god forbid. And frankly it is not that childish. There are in fact people on here who try to make it seem like they know more than others when they dont. There are people on here who try to present info as if they know it when they dont. Nothing wrong with the people who do actually know more to point out how stupid these people are. Plus why is someone an asshole for pointing out a true fact???? ATP will be a better place to see all these bands than in the 2 venues they are performing in NYC. There is no arguing of that point. So don't attack, bitch or moan about it. Get a ticket for the better venue and if you cant afford it too fucking bad. The world needs ditch diggers too.

man, i wish built to spill split up the nights and played There's Nothing Wrong With Love in its entirety. Don't get me wrong, really excited to hear Perfect from Now On two nights in a row, but there are few albums I'd rather hear played from front to back more than there's nothing wrong with love.

It's true that Terminal 5 and Roseland are terrible venues, but there is no guarentee that the Monticello venue will be better. Considering it's not normally a concert hall, I would assume the sound is bad.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 3:42 PM

is this their best album? I always liked "
"There's Nothing Wrong With Love" and I haven't played this one in so long I've kind of forgotten it. Is this the serious BTS fan's pick? would there be a better BTS pick? (sincere and curious question.)

You are correct. It is not a concert hall. It is a room that was built as a performance space and has had bands, comedians etc play there before. It is more intimate than a concert hall. I have actually seen a band play there before and the sound is not bad at all

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 3:57 PM

"There's Nothing Wrong With Love" is a great record, but really, "Perfect From Now On" is far superior. it was their first on a major and doug really amped up the solos and extended songs. in a word, it's epic.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 4:03 PM

3:48...when i see hipsters in williamsburg with the same clothes on, the same painted on facial hair listening to the same arcade fire songs, i swear im watching a real life version of mtv in 1989.

you really have no idea what a cliche you are do you?

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 4:04 PM

Anon 3:48- Yup, I’ve been an insane fan for years and this if definitely my favorite album, though I enjoy them all. It’s certainly worth your time to give it another listen.

Posted by Liz | May 13, 2008 4:04 PM

there's is one major advantage to seeing these shows at T5 and Roseland.... you don't have to haul your ass up to Monticello for a $700 weekend.

I'll pay $50 for MBV and $32 for this... and that's pretty much everything I wanted to see at ATP anyway.

Now... hopefully some of those reunions from the Sub Pop 20 festival will announce NYC dates (I'm looking at you Eric's Trip and Vaselines!)

Posted by rocked the shit | May 13, 2008 4:16 PM

i remember listening to a promo copy of perfect from now on back in 97 and just playing it over and over again with coworkers at this record label i worked at in college. we played that album so many damn times and it still sounds amazing.

by far their best work in my opinion.

fantastic point. while yeah, t5 isn't the best venue at all, still, i would take a second or third rate venue and save the $600 for something else, like more music and shows.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 4:26 PM

Great questions. There's Nothing Wrong With Love was a stellar album - totally solid from start to finish. But Perfect From Now On felt more cohesive and unique. I love them both to death, but would have to agree with others that PFNO is their Opus Magnum. But, I think 3:41's idea is awesome. Maybe they are sticking to one album b/c they didn't feel like working the other one up? I'm only a kinda sorta classical musician so I don't know how that stuff works in rock.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 4:54 PM

How did ATP beome a 700 dollar weekend? It was 240 or something for tickets and you dont have to stay up there. The place is 1 1/2 away. I mean i guess im lucky i have a car but still even if i had to stay up there if you get a room with a few friends it still doesnt come out to 700 dollars. Plus there are more great bands playing then just these 4 and a few more to be added that we dont even know yet.

@ 4:03 - you patrick bateman?

"Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your ---------. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite."

although 'perfect from now on' is their "epic" album, my fave is 'keep it like a secret'. i could listen to that album 55 times in a row and never get sick of it

Posted by hipster poseur | May 13, 2008 6:10 PM

i just got back from the ATP vs. Pitchfork.
all I gotta say is those ATP people know what they are doing.
it ran so well it was just great.

Posted by Anonymous | May 13, 2008 6:49 PM

yeah, indie lite is a little meh. that's why it's not really gonna be such a huge shame to see union hall close, all they ever book are like 30-year-olds wearing hoodies over their button-up shirts.

but do you think the people who were listening to pavement in 1993 were badasses? or the pixies in 91? there's a reason why they call it 'college rock' dude --> because it's always been about black-frame glasses. if you want to see the real shit you gotta step out to magnetic field, oh wait

c'mon, you don't love those oversized neon t-shirts? and the way the dude from deathset flips up the bill of his little cap? i eat that shit up.

ps- this thread picked up moment as a debate between whether the superior sound quality at Monticello was worth paying an extra $200 and skipping terminal 5. tell me that's not the bougiest shit you've ever heard. can we all just move to connecticut and stop fooling ourselves?

Well, he's the idiot paying $225 plus lodging to travel to shithole Monticello and attend shows full of 15- 20-year-old obnoxious drunk kids.

this show is gonna be great.

i saw the black keys at Term 5 and thought the sound was decent. same for drive by truckers and against me. yeah, sure, I'd prefer Irving Plaza for a ton of reasons.

but whatever. some of you spoiled pricks really know how to ruin a party, huh? it's a great fucking bill. i remember when that used to be enough.
