I was just watching mtv2 (one of the many 'best 22 ----' shows that they've been doing) and they mentioned starsailor. It was brief, but..they were doing the 22 best voices and discussing thom yorke. They said he influenced (his way of singing, emotion in his songs, etc) bands such as coldplay and starsailor. Maybe another one too, i can't remember...anyway, i was very pleasantly shocked!

Ok, yes, I'm posting three times in a row, but...update on the Tim Burgess opening issue. So now I guess he might not be opening, at least not on all the US dates. I guess he pulled out of some of them...not sure which ones... I thought he was listed on teh 930 site as opening earlier, but he isn't now. I guess we'll see...


edit:
Thanks, megan for finding this...

from tim's site:
As for the US Starsailor gigs starting on the 15th of
January, well that's a complicated one... but mainly
it's due to schedule conflicts & the fact that,
'I Believe' has not yet been released in America. It's
difficult to tour when you don't have a record out
there to reference & support...
I am good friends with Starsailor & have always had
the best times whilst being on the road with them. I
truly appreciate the offering to play with them & am
really upset about not being able to make this tour.
My most sincere apologies go out to Starsailor & to
all of you that were expecting to see me in the states
this time around...
I will have to make it up in the early part of the
year...!
Also be on the look out for a new Charlatans record
due out early next year.

ok, that last part i can be excited about i guess...

Or smile like Timmy.

I do like the music, though. And the t-shirts. He's young, though! And I bet he'll have teeny-bopper girl fans soon.

Well, Johnathan Rice was not bad...would have been nicer if he had a backing band, and he looked sort of nervous up there himself, but on the whole, he did a good job.

As for Starsailor themselves, Yeah. They were that awesome. It was my first Starsailor show...it was a really intimate show--I couldn't tell how many people, as we were right up front They opened with Shark Food, closed with Good Souls. In between, Tie Up My Hands was amazing. I wasn't prepared for how good it could be live, but I was astounded. Silence Is Easy stole the show, Music Was Saved sounded fantastic live. But Good Souls...wow. I don't even really have words to describe to you what this song is like...granted, it is (one) of favourite songs off of Love Is Here; live, it soars.

T minus 5 days for a few of us. I am rather excited for Saturday. I wonder how crowded the 9:30 Club is going to be?

Sweetest _Thing did they Play Born Again at your Show? I agree, Good Souls effin rocks live.

Jenn or Megan - what are the chances they will play All or Nothing? I imagine that AON would be fantastic live.

So we're getting Matthew Ryan in Boulder instead of Jonathan Rice. Anybody know anything about him?

They sure did play Born Again! What a great song to hear live, too.

I don't know about the crowd...I'm hoping the cold keeps people away or something. Not that I don't want a crowd, just not too much of one. I haven't seen much talk on the 930 board about it.

I doubt they'll play All or Nothing, sadly. I've never heard them do it live and they've been so into new and/or u2 covers, so....not sure!
