    Saw Fuck Buttons open for Caribou on Sunday. They both were quite good but I was somewhat taken aback that FB's just played their album verbatim. I know its nice to have a noisy band have some songs and whatnot but still....there is so much room from improvisation and experimentation with their setup and they just play the same thing every night? I dont know am I weird for thinking it just that I am conditioned so that if I see two guys hunched over tables full of mixers and knobs i expect improv? For example it didnt bother me in the least that Caribou played their songs straight and well....

    On that note I do like that various parts of the internation noise underground continue to surface. I mean how ubiquitous is the on stage mixer these days? Or only needin a card table and some knobs to rock out.

    anyways here are the other dates with FB's on that tour, if anybody sees them I would love to hear your thoughts. oh and Caribou live is a sight to behold!

    Nigredo - They're playing with Battles?? I already have a ticket for that gig, but I didn't know Fuck Buttons were playing! Joy. Makes up for missing them by two weeks in February.
