I only just last week found out they were playing in Seattle. Then of course I found out it was sold out.

C'est la vie.

Same problem with me last month, only I found out the day after they went on sale and it was already sold out. Blows.

One nice thing about Utah is that concerts rarely sell out.


There are no other nice things about Utah.

Yeah, when I looked at Craigslist for Seattle tickets, there were several posts bitching about the scalping going on.

*~shocking~*

the show was fantastic. they were in amazing form, everything was absolutely perfect.


but it gets better.



for their last song, 1901, they did a really long extended outro. Thomas Mars jumped out into the crowd for this part, which was a really slow beat with a simple bass and guitar line. then he came back onstage, and told everyone to come up. a ton of people rushed the stage and they were jumping around, taking pictures, while the band was still playing. then they stopped, a quick 4 count in, and they did the 1901 outro, which got the whole stage jumping. i'm surprised the guys even survived it, there must have been 100 people on stage. i've never heard of a band doing something like that. it was an unbelievable experience.

Not true, SLC has one of the few indoor long-track speedskating ovals in America, but if you're not into that it wouldn't help .

You'd stay away too after all those awful things Brigham Young said about the French.

That's going to be a great week of shows: Beach House -> LE PHEEN! -> The Dead Weather. Holy smokes.

Once again, the "can't play in L.A. if you play Coachella" conflict rears its head again.

Also, my birthday is the first day of the festival this year.

Fuck the desert.

In other news, some friends and I are planning a huge two-week Winnebago road trip that may take us through AUSTIN on the way to New Orleans and possibly the second weekend of Jazzfest in New Orleans.

WHO DAT?

Nut up go and to Coachella, man. Fuck it. That lineup is filthy.

Just don't bring your antisemitism and silly hats here.
