You live in Queens and find Randall's Island hard to get to? Take the NQ to Astoria Blvd and walk over the bridge - voila. That bridge walk home, high on music and whatever else, has been one of my favorite parts of GovBall for years. I'd be interested to see what AEG might bring to the table - I just wish they would do it at a time that isn't such a direct "fuck you" to GovBall.

October 16, 2015 on Governors Ball Petitions Mayor To Block “NYC Coachella”
I saw these guys at Governors Ball this year. Their mullet game is fierce, and they have to work on their stage presence, a bit, but the songs are definitely there and I really enjoyed the show. They had a tough slot (first up on Sunday), but they pulled in a decent crowd by the time all was said and done.

That was pretty bad. I've played with on bills at empty dive bars with bands, like, five times this quality in songwriting and performance, and this guy gets to be on national television? Blah.

I never thought it would happen but, after watching this performance, for the first time in my life, I literally can't even.

August 12, 2015 on Lil B Endorses Bernie Sanders On CNN, Sanders Says Thanks
This is sad news. I've had all my guitar repair done at Rudy's for years, and they were always professional, courteous, and helpful, and, most importantly, did excellent work. Sigh.

It looks like tickets for a lot of these shows are already on sale - I just popped over to his site on a whim and was able to buy mine for the Jersey City date.

What a great performance of a totally mediocre song.

This is a great list, but my personal list would have cited "Friend of the Night" by Mogwai. Purely subjective, but that song is the bomb.

I'm convinced Aimee Mann became a vampire somewhere around 10-15 years ago. She hasn't aged in the slightest.

I love me some SVE, but this is the first Barry podcast I've listened to and, wow, do I find his voice annoying. It's like he's doing the worst parody of the stereotypical NPR broadcaster. Seriously, at points, as interested as I was in what was being said, I almost had to turn the thing off because it was grating on me so much. Needless to say, I realize this is entirely irrational.

When I saw them at Terminal 5, the energy was through the roof. I agree the band didn't put out that much of an energetic vibe, but the crowd picked it up in a big way. That's definitely what's missing in a video like this.
