Wow, check out this trippy interactive video from Broken Bells (aka the lead singer from The Shins and Danger Mouse): http://www.brokenbells.com/october/

Pretty cool.

My mind was totally blown upon discovering that Rites of Spring live footage exists on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wf_ucq-NwTo

You seriously just figured this out? lol.

VH1's new list of "The Top 100 (Musical) Artists of All Time"

http://stereogum.com/495331/vh1-100-greatest-artists-of-all-time/list/

Wow, that's a terrible list. Hall and Oates? Justin Timberlake??? Where the hell are Simon and Garfunkel?

At least they got the top two spots right, I guess.

EDIT: Well, that last bit isn't even true since Dylan was only #5 according to the television version of this list.

Does anyone else think Bossanova sucked?

No. I was slightly disappointed that they only did one song off of that album when I saw them in '05. They are amazing live though.

Really? I'd love to go and see them live.

Yeah, they played almost 30 songs. I mean, most of their songs are pretty short but it was still a lot. They did most of Surfer Rosa and Doolittle. I actually have a CD of the show. I would definitely try to catch them if they end up going out again.

I saw Ra Ra Riot in Brooklyn on Friday night. Great band... and the cellist has to be one of the hottest women I've ever seen in person.

Do you like The Hated? I think you said you liked Husker Du, so you probably would.

I really never listened to them much. I do like Husker Du though.

High Violet has officially converted me to a fan of The National. Unbelievably awesome record.

Boxer > High Violet

Good to see some love for the National here.

I'll have to give that one another listen. I couldn't get too into it when I first heard it a couple of years ago. "Mistaken for Strangers" is great though.

Today in weird music news... Moe Tucker, drummer of the Velvet Underground, has apparently become a teabagger!

It breaks my heart.

Too bad Sterling Morrison is dead. He lived right by me. Maybe I could have went and asked him about his politics.

New Sufjan Stevens is surprisingly good.

Like those 25 minute songs, eh?

I'm going to see him in November. I hope he at least does some of the classic stuff.

Anybody like the Doors?

I love them. Cool sig.

Anyone here a fan of Alice Cooper?

I saw him live years ago. Definitely a pretty interesting show.

I'm going to a lot of concerts in the next few days.

Thursday - Yeasayer
Monday - Sufjan Stevens
Tuesday - Bob Dylan

It'll be the second time I've seen Yeasayer and probably like the fifth time I've seen Dylan... first time seeing Sufjan though.

How is Bob Dylan live?

Well, his voice is absolutely shot at this point but other than that he and his band are usually great.

I wouldn't see him at the kind of ticket prices he's able to demand.

Heh. At least he doesn't do these huge monstergigs.


I'm seeing him for $45 and I'm in the fifth row. Pretty reasonable.

Speaking of that:

Concerts I'm going to:
Sonic Youth

Concerts I MIGHT be going to:
Deerhunter
Mercury Rev
Mogwai

Smiley

I enjoyed Mogwai live but they aren't for everyone. I still need to see Sonic Youth live. I had planned on doing that this past summer but I didn't get a chance.

What Bob Dylan vinyls should I get next? I got the "The Times They Are A-Changin" LP and it is awesome.

"Free Wheelin' Bob Dylan"
"Another Side of Bob Dylan"
"Bringing It All Back Home"

Those would be my recommendations for you.
