You're going to love WILCO. I'm not even a "fan" per say but I went to a show with some friends and they were impressive to say the least.

I've never been a huge fan in the past, but I've been listening to them more and more lately and I've been really enjoying them.

My buddy's girlfriend actually won the tickets to see them (his girlfriend is the type of person that wins tickets to everything. She literally picks and chooses which contests she enters because apparently the radio stations limit the number of contests you can win in a month. It's wild), but they just moved out to Nova Scotia and obviously won't be able to see Wilco in Toronto.

Just saw Thom Yorke/atoms for peace/tomorrow’s modern boxes in Laval. Bonkers.

Light show / projections / digital art like nothing I’ve ever seen. Like an apple ad got molested by the first Star Trek movie. Some sort of video synth maybe. Dunno. But was seriously impressed.

Stereolab in DC was great! total fun from back to front. Laetitia looked lovely. the crowd was uber-stoked...at one point some dude in the balcony yelled "I'VE BEEN WAITING FOURTEEN YEARS FOR THIS EXACT MOMENT!!!" to which she replied "that's very patient of you." she actually talked Gane into doing a 3d song in the encore as he was already taking off the guitar. most fun i've had at a show since Gomez last summer.

tomorrow i'm off to Asheville, NC to see Ride. i need to pick up some earplugs, because apparently according to their label on Twitter "loud af warning in effect." :!!!:

It's just unfair how amazing Derek Trucks is at guitar. Unfair.

Derek Trucks is amazing. His playing on hitting the note is amazing, and mega underrated.

Going to see Sebadoh tonight! Never seen Them, very excited.
good deals are here.

YES! I used to think Tab Benoit was the best guitarist I've seen live (that was last Summer 2018). Derek Trucks is operating in a completely different multi-verse. Again, "Unfair" is the word. That kind of music is never my first choice to listen to in my spare time... I'm just trying to give credit where it is due.

meh. Derek has good technique but that alone doesn't make them to me.. I've just spent way too much time listening to blues... that type of playing is cool but there is too much missing, it's like a coffee table book, it's pretty and impressive to look at but in the end it's all glossy photos of coffee tables that a bunch of old people made.

So Thom Yorke was alright. I was just a little disappointed that he leaned more into beats than synth/piano driven stuff. It was so refreshing to hear a solo piano rendition of Dawn Chorus at the end of a pretty techno heavy set.

Bon Iver on the other hand was probably in my top two favourite concert experiences! The light show/mirrors/whole stage setup was amazing and I love how everything they played was just a little different from the albums. He also played a few songs that I was totally not expecting to hear

Breakdown of other artists I have seen recently:
Andrea Belfi (opened for Thom Yorke): forgot to mention this in my last post, but this guy was pretty cool. He did a synth/drums set where he was triggering all kinds of sequences and samples from his drum kit. It was really cool, but didn't quite make sense in a stadium. Would love to see him in a smaller, more intimate setting

Feist (opened for Bon Iver): I don't know much of her music outside Broken Social Scene, but her performance was actually really good despite butchering a Tragically Hip cover and the fact that she really needs a deeper voice to balance her really high singing. Her backing band was great!

Lord Huron (opened for Wilco): these guys were alright. At times they felt like they were trying to play on top of one another rather than playing together, but they had some catchy songs. Just not really my cup of tea.

Wilco: incredible performance! I went in not knowing too many of their songs, but I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Nels Cline is fantastic at layering glitchy loops on top of everything. It all felt so organic and natural. Been listening to their new album on repeat since Tuesday!

Modest Mouse: live show absolutely still holds up! Just as raw and awesome as I remember from when I last saw them, like, a decade ago? I think there was 10 of them on stage; ridiculous double drummer setup. Played a real mix of their whole catalogue too. I love that their setlist vary wildly every night.

Black Keys: not much to say other than they were just as generic and bland as I was expecting. Looked up their setlist after and they literally play the exact same songs in the exact same order every single night. Almost felt like a contractual obligation to keep people's pockets lined.

I am very surprised with how awesome this was. Super far out. Saw a man play the cactus as an instrument (sound sources). Lots of CT5 action and particle v2.

Did not where my Shania Twain T-Shirt :cry: . If anyone was there I was the guy in the front in the red sweater and awful mustache. My new look is "raccoon with AIDS dressed like Mr. Rogers". Anyway... it was a great time!

Probably going to one of these nights. KILL ALTERS rule. I also want to see MACHINE GIRL one night.
