Anyone knows when Plastic People of the Universe go on? Do they open or headline? Lincoln Center website is awfully uninformative about that...

What are the odds that two of the best bands of this decade are playing outdoors shows in New York in a single weekend!

Walkmen and AnCo--I'm looking at you!!

Posted by Regular reader | August 14, 2009 5:26 PM

^^if that is true than this decade is a sad, sad time for music...

The Walkmen's drummer is so damn good

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 5:48 PM

@ 5:38 get over yourself1

it is all opinion and animal collective are definitely making some of the best music coming out now for a lot of people...nothing sad about it in my opinion...what are you into, Bono or something?

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 5:58 PM

love animal collective, love walkmen, but would probably pick animal collective since a listen to them a hell of a lot more

any ladies want to come over to my place and watch 'Lost'? I'm on episode 11 of season 3. You could also pluck some of my stray back hairs that keep popping up...they are pretty thick, like pubes, but sparse enough so I can't reach them myself. We can get Thai food delivered too.

Any ladies want come over to my place and watch Gilligan's Island? I'm on season 2 - AND I have all the made for TV movies.

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 10:29 PM

Great show. I'd give my left nut--thread pun intended--to hear "Essplode" in the middle of "Fireworks," like the band used to do....

Posted by Regular reader | August 15, 2009 12:43 AM

Hercules and Love Affair (Weekender) was pretty good! they played new stuff/reworked version and have a new lineup for 09 - 3 vogue dancers, Andy and other dude keyboard/beats, Kim Ann vocals, and 2 new singers damn good voices/style!
