” I spent a really long time freaking out because people were telling me that in order to take “the next step” in my career, I would have to become a much better “musician,” that I’d need a backing band, etc.”
I really like Grimes, she seems like a cool chick. But this is kinda weak. I don’t think she NEEDS a backing band to take the next step in her career… but seeing an electronic artist with a full band live is much more interesting than seeing an electronic artist jump and dance around next to a laptop. It just makes for a more interesting live show, that’s it.
Yo Julian: You were in the Strokes. Your mom was a Dutch model. And your dad founded a modeling agency. And you went to The Dwight School and boarding school in Switzerland. It doesn’t get any whiter than that.
I remember joking with a friend that Bear In Heaven could have played a whole extra set. This was probably 2009 because I moved out of Georgia in 2010.
She’s super self-centered.
I went to see them at the Masquerade in Atlanta and Bear In Heaven opened. After Bear In Heaven were done (they started on time and played 45 minutes), everyone waited around for AN HOUR AND A HALF for Crystal Castles to go on because Glass was on the bus and wanted to “finish her movie” before she got on stage (a few pals used to / still do work at the Masquerade). Apparently this bitch has never heard of PAUSE.
As far as the show goes, it was fine. Mainly backing tracks, which is expected for an electronic duo or solo artist… it’s just kinda sucky because I’ve seen similar bands go all out live and put some effort into making their live show cool.
Yeah dude. I mean, Gary Glitter? √+
They’re gonna be in Europe or on the West Coast. They just announced dates. Not gonna be NMH.
They’re playing Counterpoint Festival, also in Georgia, about a week earlier, so it’s unlikely.
