I'm Older Than I've Ever Been

As a preemptive, unintentional birthday present from a friend at work, I'll be spending the weekend in San Diego seeing a They Might Be Giants show. With backstage passes.

Oh, snap!

I'm heading down there with two guys on my rarely-used DnD team ... which means either my 26th year is going to be the nerdiest one yet, or I'll get it all out in the first two weekends and become suddenly adept in average social situations.

I'm hoping for the former.

To the Douchebag Who Hit My Car Door and Drove Away

Thanks, ass. Way to take responsibility for your actions.

Oh, and congratulations on nailing the one car in Los Angeles County that's barely ever driven.

Good Music Week Minipost


Saw Andrew Bird at Amoeba Records. The only L.A. show he was doing outside the Coachella sweatshop. Great, great set of mostly new stuff ... and a bit more rockin' than I was expecting. The past few times I've seen him have been solo shows; this time he had Dosh and a guitarist / bassist on stage. Still one of my favorite musicians of all time. Still 120% worth seeing if he's in your area.


Saw Elvis Costello & the Impostors at the Sunset Strip House of Blues. The Most. Expensive. Concert. Ticket. I've ever bought. And parking was 15 bucks. I fucking hate the Strip.

But the show was awesome. Elvis came onstage in a black suit and black sunglasses, and proceeded to rock everyone through more than two hours of songs from his enormous back catalogue and THREE encores. The Impostors were tight, and they were louder than most of the so-called rock shows I've seen. Solo acoustic version of "Alison" had the audience silent. Then he rocked everyone's face off with "Pump It Up" and "Radio, Radio." Living legend.


Finally bought the new Field Music and Cornelius albums. Both have been in heavy rotation this week.

That is all.
