Got tix to the LA show here in a few weeks. No idea what to expect but I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
We will never get a proper reissue of Loveless at this rate.
How did this guy get the chance to do this twice with two different bands? Why wasn’t he kicked out the first time it happened? Just horrible.
It doesn’t remind of us any of that – that’s exactly the point. Our history with native americans ain’t exactly great, and by doing this we are essentially using an already-marginalized group of people’s history and heritage and reducing it to a mascot/token fashion statement/kitsch without ever thinking about the atrocities committed against them.
He’s one of the greatest interviewers ever. There are a few great ones if you haven’t seen them: Pharrel/NERD’s first one, Joanna Newsom’s, Tyler the Creator’s, Drake’s, GWAR (RIP), Haim.
And nothing against the Blood Brothers, that’s just the first band I thought of that induces such a polarizing reaction from people.
I think people find it confusing because St. Vincent is about as “mainstream” as you can get if you are talking about anything indie. I mean she’s toured with David Byrne and practically played every single big festival and there is nothing out there about her sound, yet people are reacting like if it’s the Blood Brothers up there.
This was awful. She seems very articulate and knowledgeable. Why she even agreed to interview with these bros is beyond me.
Would also love to see the headlines if Kanye was cut off and was ok with it because he’d have to pay.
One of the worst sets by a headliner I’ve seen in awhile. They haven’t performed together in years and it shows. Andre looked completely out of it (back to crowd on Hey Ya?), and he didn’t even pretend to sing with the backing tracks at certain parts. Future coming out and pimping his album – really? It started ok but when they moved to the solo album tracks it was just downhill from there. Hope to god it improves as the shows go on because this was just terrible.
