off the hook

Was there an exact point when CSS dropped the "Cansei de Ser Sexy" and just went with the abbreviation? Not important knowledge, but I'm curious.

Whatever you want to call them, hopefully you were watching them tonight. Even though their openers canceled (first Bonde do Role because DJ Gorky needed dental surgery and then Busdriver was a no show), it was worth the $20 for the headliners. They're no the tightest band in the world live, but what they lack in chops they sure as hell make up in energy. Actually, on that note, I don't really think all that much of the record (it's good, not great), but again, they transcend all that live. If you were ready for a midweek party, you weren't disappointed. Well, unless you were the drunk girl that jumped on stage... then you're probably wishing you still had your belt.

I'm currently advancing the theory that Lovefoxx is the Brazilian, party version of Bjork.

I'm reviewing it for Streethawk, so look for some more fully formed thoughts over there at the beginning of next week.

Wolf Parade are at Richard's on September 7th with Holy Fuck. Tickets go on sale this Saturday Friday (I clearly lack basic reading-comprehension skills) and you might want to jump on that pretty quickly. Last time they came they sold out the Commodore in advance. I have no idea why they're downsizing, but I'd rather see a show at Richard's if I had the preference, so no complaints here.

The Cribs are at Richard's on July 29th with Sean Na Na and "the Fields." I don't know if that means the Field or Fields. Based on the tour itinerary that is posted for the former, I would guess the latter though.

now playing: CSS - I Wanna Be Your JLo (Sleater-Kinney vs. JLo version)

agreed. 100%. the lack of openers didn't bother me at all, as we were just givin'er on the dance floor anyway to what the dj was spinning.

but yeah, they were pretty damn fun. and i don't think i've seen that many drunk girls at richard's since, well, ever.

Looks like another opener has cancelled: SWAK now has Love and Mathematics opening the Rosebuds show, so Land Of Talk have presumably pulled out.

Me neither! Something about that Lovefoxx makes the girls go loco!!

Hanson, were those your glasses that she borrowed?

I can't really see The Field opening for the fucking Cribs and Sean Na Na, can you? It's obviously Fields. Not hatin', just sayin'

-as.

Yeah, it didn't really make sense musically either.

apl: that sucks... although that means I don't have to try to catch LoT before Girl Talk, I guess.

I thought the CSS show was great! I have a none sexual crush on the lead singer. Do you know who the DJ was that played beforehand?
