i'm not judging you, i'm judging me
After Eric's Trip, Wire, the Jesus & Mary Chain, and now Mission of Burma, I think I'm going to start watching bands full of old guys exclusively (I guess Eric's Trip aren't that old - also, not all guys).
Mission of Burma was at the Plaza last night to perform Signals, Calls and Marches and a healthy dose from the rest of their catalogue. And, other than sort of wishing that they would have played the album in order (which is a small complaint), they were pretty amazing. I'm not really all that familiar with anything outside of Signals... and Vs., but the songs they included from their more recent releases, as was the case with Wire, really stood up well.
If nothing else, it was worth attending for the sing along during "That's When I Reach for My Revolver."
Just in case you were wondering who they supported in the election.
Gang Violence opened up the show. This is the first time that I've caught them since Sarah (Channels 3+4/Ice Cream) started singing for them. In some cases, the vocals seemed a touch out of place, but when the trio really hit on something it was pure gold. If you haven't already, go see them if you get the chance. If you have seen them, you're probably already planning to do that.
On Halloween, those Half Alive guys are throwing a party at the Sweatshop with Glass Candy, the aforementioned Gang Violence, Lioness, and You Say Party! We Say Die! performing downstairs, while Tyler, Tony, Jason, and Expendable Youth spin tunes all night upstairs.
Three Six Mafia are at the Commodore on November 28th for their first ever performance in Vancouver.
They did play the Signals tracks in order, they just played the bonus tracks from the reissue and a couple others first. Makes sense - it probably would have been anticlimactic if they started the set with Revolver and ended with outtakes..
i was gonna say the same thing... except i didn't know those tracks were on the reissue. a lot of them first appeared on the shoddily-compiled "peking spring" and "forget" lp's.... now i want to hear the remastered versions.
what an amazing show.

I would pay more money for footage of Three Six Mafia's discussions with the border guards on their way here.
Hey Q, you don't have the upcoming Wire or Digable Planets shows listed in the sidebar... Also, the Dylan show is in the wrong spot. ;-)

Not to mention Buddy Guy at the Commodore and Esthero at the Biltmore.
