    @chrisanthropic,

    I'm seeing him tonight in Brooklyn, and in doing so, I will fulfill the punk-fueled fantasies of my youth.

    This Saturday, I'm also seeing Zola Jesus for the first time, so this is a hell of a concert week for me.

    Saw Femi Kuti and the Positive Force in Toronto last night. The sound was horrible and they opened with new material I don't think they had quite mastered yet then suddenly the sound board got it's act together and so did the band and ultimately the dance floor. They ripped for over 3 hours with only 1brief intermission.

    Femi also gave us a lecture about sex. He said "don't cum too fast" and " when you're about to cum, REVERSE BACK!" well here let Femi tell you himself ( sex speech approx 1:30 minute )



    oh like father like son.

    @chrisanthropic,

    Honestly, it was a bit hit and miss. I'm chalking that up to it being the first night and the shitty sound system. It seemed like the band couldn't hear each other at several points.

    I will say this, the singer (I believe her name is Carol Hodge) he's touring with who does all the Joy and Eve stuff is phenomenal. Totally riveting.

    And of course, Ignorant is just charming as hell.

    SHAI HULUD in Rome was lovely. I didn't realize how much I missed those songs until I felt the hair on my arms stand up during "...Colonizers of Dreams" and "Set Your Body Ablaze."

    In a bit of circularity that only Joe and I recognize, I accidentally bit the singer's hand during "To Bear the Brunt of Many Blades," which I apologized for afterwards and it turns out he liked it, as it reminded him of the times when the same thing would happen to him when he saw Shai Hulud as a fan himself.

    Just saw Rammstein last night. Best show I've EVER seen. As a plus, my boyfriend's band once opened for the guy who opened for Rammstein last night, Combichrist; kind of a neat little connection.

    Tonight I am off to see dEUS at The Garage in Islington.

    First gig in eight months since The Boy arrived :)

    Also realised that in nearly 20 years (!) this is the first time I've been to a gig at The Garage...

    Flaming Lips in a Month's time doing Soft Bulletin alongside Dinosaur Jr. doing Bug...

    Saw MCR last Friday. Second time seeing them. This time they played the Palladium. I've never seen such a huge line, apparently kids were camping out. I haven't seen that kind of dedication since NIN's final shows in LA. It was really fucking rowdy in the pit and I survived a good 97% of their set before getting the fuck out of there. I kept getting singled out in the crowd by d-bags for some reason. Maybe cuz I was a little tall looking in that crowd of short girls. My ribs finally recovered. Anyway, it fucking rocked.

    Saw Jakob last night. Was bloody shattered but was a good gig. They make excellent music in a post-rock vein.

    my best gig ever so far as i have probably said elsewhere was the boredoms at the barfly/institute in Birmingham here. I'd say it was a revelation, if that didn't sound pretentious. fuck it, it was a revelation.
