The Chicago show is just over two days away, and my excitement is mounting. This'll somehow be the first time I've seen the band--they came to Tokyo, about 14 months ago, but their set was scheduled for 35 minutes (as a part of what was called "New Age British Invasion Super!" or something), and would've cost me over $60 USD; then, they played in Chiba (you can see the highway I lived off of, in the Beautiful DVD), like, a week after I left the country. Bastards. And bastardesses, or something.

But, yeah. I'm hella-jazzed. Who cares if I'm going alone? Cannot fucking wait. Gonna be so much motherfucking fun. Just listened to Sticking Fingers into Sockets and "Tweexcore," and I couldn't possibly be any more stoked. Additionally, this is beautiful:

"And I always get confused,
because in supermarkets, they turn the lights off when they want you to leave,
but in discos, they turn them on.
And it's always sad to go, but it's never that sad,
because there's only so many places you're guaranteed of getting a
hug, when you leave.
And then, on the way home, it always seems like a good idea to go
paddling in the fountain. And that's because it IS a good idea.
And we're just like how Rousseau depicts man in the state of nature:
we're undeveloped, we're ignorant, we're stupid.
But we're happy."

Gorgeous. God, I wish that I could feel this way about bands, art, film, people--you name it, really--more often. So rapturously perfect.

We both know your heart's not in it.

It's taken me a few days to sort of come down from the cloud I've been floating on since attending the Super Bowl, but now that I'm back to reality, I've been getting excited for the show on Saturday.

Sports, yes. Sports. When the Giants won the Superbowl, last year, I was in Japan. I'd called in sick, so that I could watch the game; it started at about 8:00, on a Monday morning. I had never been as invested in a game as I was in that one, and when the clock read ":00," I collapsed to the floor and wept tears of joy. It was miraculous. I have to admit that I probably don't feel as strongly about this band as I did about that game. Like, while I'll be overjoyed, I really don't see myself weeping, when they play "Sweet Dreams, Sweet Cheeks," or whatever.

If anything, I'll weep if/when they don't cover "Frontwards." Now that they're a "real" band, with two records, I doubt that they'll be cramming in anymore Pavement songs. Sucks, but here's hoping!

I still can't believe you went to the Super Bowl, man. That's beyond awesome.

Anyways, I'm still jealous you're both seeing them live, and really hope they end up adding more shows and come by my boring neck of the woods.

I'm a life-long Steeler fan, so, seeing them win such a close game, in person, was a truly amazing experience, right up there with seeing the Yankees win the World Series in person in 1996. And, while a Live musical experience cannot evoke the exact emotions these sporting events provided me with, they can certainly cause me to experience a different sort of joy. I'll admit it: I've almost cried during certain performances of "Bad". And, certainly, if U2 ever played "A Sort of Homecoming", it's hard to believe that I'd not at least well up. So, both push certain emotional buttons, but, the buttons sports can push are a lot more powerful or at least a lot more visible to an observer.

Going to the Super Bowl is something I've always wanted to do, but never really pursued.....but, seeing my Steelers play in the game, and fucking win it, yeah, that's pure insanity. I still cannot fucking believe it all went down less than a week ago, and I was there.

I hope they end up playing Utah, Scumbo.

Live from Barcelona. Pretty solid recording, this one. Even with its relative muddiness, it give you a pretty good idea of the surprisingly clear and incisive sound that this band brings to the live arena. My experiences with live Broken Social Scene have been pretty similar. It's just incredible how clear this sounds, with seven people all playing live. Great stuff.

I'll leave it downloading now and tomorrow I'll listen to it. Hopefully I'll be pleased. I've never heard anything from them.
Btw, tomorrow will be an interesting day, I'm downloading:
Beck - Modern Guilt
Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours
Los Campesinos - We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion

Then I'll go to a party where I'll probably get drunk enough to forget all those albums.
If they're bad, good.
If they're good, even better. I'll need to listen to then again.

I don't know if you want to listen to this bootleg as your first exposure to Los Camp. It's not the best quality recording.
