It’s too late to save face, Lily Allen.

This was an AMAZING time. The best $35 I’ve ever spent.

Wow, this list is actually…really good. A nice balance of populist picks and artsier music. Well done, Rolling Stone.

It’s a figure of speech. I didn’t particularly want to get into a detailed conversation about the strengths of weaknesses of Neon Bible in a stereogum.com comment, sorry.

December 2, 2009 on New Arcade Fire Out In May? Festival Gigs To Follow

It’s encouraging that Dravs said the new songs are “better”, as it indicates an awareness that Neon Bible wasn’t perfect. Here’s hoping this one blows it out of the water.

I get the sense that the disappointment some people are feeling might be coming from the fact that the bulk of the show is Doolittle, front to back. It’s definitely cool, cool enough that I saw it three times. But you lose the unpredictability that makes live music really exciting when you play an album in sequence like that. “Oh man, Monkey Goes to Heaven is two songs away” isn’t as thrilling as being surprised by it somewhere in the set. That caveat aside, I had a great time at the shows I went to. Pretty fucking good for four people in their mid-40s.

November 25, 2009 on Pixies Perform “Debaser” & “Hey” On Fallon

This Fireflies song is the only song I’ve ever heard of where the chord progression doesn’t make any fucking sense. Seriously, listen to the chorus. None of those chords sound like they’re part of a coherent musical phrase. It’s a new low in incompetence.
