Meant to put this here, not the Lemonheads post. Girls were awesome at Mercury Lounge last night... if you can make it to either Monster Island tonight or Cake Shop tomorrow, you really should. New drummer and guitarist, hot stuff. Lightyears better than they were last year, and I thought they were good then.

ditto-I would have like to seen him perform, despite how possibly weird it would have been.

On the talk page of Wikipedia's article about Michael Jackson, there are heated discussions over whether or not he was a Muslim.

girls and real estate KILLED IT

just finished listening to the new Arctic Monkey's album. Talk about summoning The Stooges era "Funhouse". The results are fantastic.

Take a little longer to post these and just call it "What happened on Friday"

quick little vent....was just watching Bill Maher's interview of "musician"/actor Billy Bob Thorton and they were discussing amongst a few topics the progression of music from the mid fifties to now. Billy Bob in all his infinite wisdom gave a little anecdote how he quizzed a young girl on a film set about 10 years ago to see if she could populate a list of artists from 1979 to the current point in time.

basically his point and opinion was that there were no bands or artists (outside REM and U2) that will be remembered a 100 years ago...unlike pre 1979 where he states there were a slew of artists that fit that bill. Of course just like most people who think they know music well he starts reeling off The Beatles, Elvis, The Rolling Stones (yawn...like I haven't heard those same band names recycled out of lazyness about a million times in my life)....what Billy? no mention of bands like The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, guys like Buddy Holly.....these artists never get the respect they deserve. Yes, The Beatles probably were and still are the greatest band to have ever graced this planet but let's get beyond just them please.

Oh and beyond that his little comment that there are very few tremendous musical and groundbreaking artists from 1979 to basically now should ABSOLUTELY INFURIATE every single reader of this site who knows how truly inane and imprudent a statement like that is. I'm not going to start listing bands and artists but you catch my drift.

Olaf Arnalds covered Billy Jean yesterday. Overall she was pretty lame. Got almost zero reaction from the crowd.

Blonde Redhead I forgot how much they rely on programmed backing tracks. It was pretty awful. Some guy asked me if the girl was playing the bass, and the real answer is no one was playing it, they just pressed a button...

point taken 11:44. What needs to be understood is that most people don't seem to have the mental capacity to be able to handle enjoying more than 10 different musical artists or a couple different genres of music. When someone as great as Harry Nilsson (who was revered by The Beatles) gets little to no recognition for his tremendous body of work from even die hard Beatles fans than you know it's not simply people being ignorant but instead a lack of consciousness of quality and variety.

guys you can't project good taste onto everyone. Just be pleased that you've been graced with an ear and a mind that is open to music that is high quality, creative and in many cases probably will never be listened to anyone outside a small community of peoples.

The Plastic Crimewave Guitarkesra + Puffy Areolas = ULTIMATE WIN. Cake Shop was decimated.

First of all, it's Olof. Second, she is a great artist who just happened to be at the wrong place. And by wrong place, I mean an outdoors venue where her music (which is absolutely beautiful when paid attention to) was impossible to hear due to the quiet-intimate nature of it AND because the majority of the audience consisted of rude, narrow-minded people (as yourself) who wouldn't bother to give an artist 30 minutes of silence to allow her to play her music.

The Arctic Monkeys and The Stooges? Please, don't insult Iggy like that. Those UK turds are more comparable to other "greats" like Gay Dad.

6:27 true what you say ,"Olof" was put into an impossible situation and she tried to make the best of it. she should have been playing a show at the Living Room, not opening for Blonde Redhead.
