Mogwai @ Terminal 5, NYC - Sept 18, 2008 (soulblend)
"The pairing of venerable Scottish post-rockers Mogwai with Fuck Buttons, a knob-twiddling duo who weave subtle melodies through waves of tribal noise, is inspiring. Both groups make mostly instrumental soundscapes, but go about it in entirely different ways. Mogwai (pictured above) use traditional rock instruments; Fuck Buttons use Nintendo GameBoys, toy microphones, laptops, and whatever else seems to strike their fancy." [Washington City Paper]The Mogwai / Fuck Buttons tour hit Terminal Five in NYC last night (Sept 18). Fuck Buttons play ATP NY on Saturday. Mogwai play the same upstate festival on Sunday.
Built to Spill, Thurston Moore, Tortoise, Meat Puppets and Bardo Pond play the sold out affair at a country club, TONIGHT (Sept 19). They're all playing full albums. Thurston practiced on Wednesday night in his hometown.
Lilys also play ATP on Sunday. They played the opening show at The Bell House in Brooklyn last night.
The Mogwai-scored Zidane hits select theaters on October 24th.
