Alabama 3. You're probably familiar with the song on the top of this post.
I went to see Type O Negative at Terminal 5 on Saturday. I've seen Type O Negative a lot and Saturday was not a great show - I think partially because half the crowd was there just to see Hatebreed who went on last and partially because frontman Peter Steele just doesn't seem to be doing so well.
Sonic Youth tickets will be available that morning.

Charles Gocher (1952-2007) (photo by Kerry Kugelman)The NYC show is June 22nd at Knitting Factory. Tickets are still on sale. Sir Richard Bishop asks that everyone reads "Invisible Tempos of the Vanishing Assassin" (the story of Charles Gocher). Sun City Girls contributed heavily to the Mr. Lonely soundtrack. All tour dates below....
This current tour features Alan Bishop and Richard Bishop as an acoustic guitar duet. They will be performing Sun City Girls songs including many penned by Gocher. Most dates will feature an opening 40 minute film of Charles Gocher's video experiments followed by two sets of music. This tour will most likely be the only time this show will be presented as such and is a tribute both to Charles Gocher and selected music from the 27 year legacy of Sun City Girls.
