human behaviour

Apparently when 90% of the music world is down in Austin, the flow of news that doesn't include "I watched *insane number of* bands today and I'm totally hungover from free beer and BBQ" slows to a trickle. With that in mind, I hope you'll excuse my absence.

Bjork is at Deer Lake Park on May 23rd. I heard rumblings that a show pre-Sasquatch would include some acts from the fest (a la the Flaming Lips/Modest Mouse/Destroyer/Liz Phair), but we'll see if the openers will also be joining Bjork at the Gorge the next weekend. (thanks to Nathan for the heads up)

PFork let's us know that Modest Mouse is at the Coliseum on April 16th.

They were also kind enough to announce the White Stripes tour from 2005 as dates for 2007. The NME and Billboard were also duped.

Finally, Daft Punk tickets for Seattle are on-sale this Saturday at noon through Ticketmaster ($40USD + charges). There's a pre-sale that starts on Thursday, but I have no idea that the password is. If you do, do tell. (thanks Ken)

hey man... screw you and your doubleshot of Soulwax at the Aus version of VFest. Honestly, i'd rather see that than Bjork.

By Blogger Quinn, at 12:26 a.m.  

You'd rather see that because you're already seeing her at Sasquatch, asshole! Leave the rest of us our joyful bit of Bjork.

at rather have Soulwax headline Sasquatch than Bjork, as well... were I to choose. (though im happy to see Bjork)

Modest Mouse presale starts Weds 10 a.m. till Fri 10 p.m. on Ticketbastard; CFOX p/w is SHIP. Limit 4 tickets. Regular onsale is Saturday 10 a.m. Tickets $35/$40 and I'm assuming the higher price is for GA floor.
