to tell the truth, oh, this could be the last time
Hey, so, I was in New York last week watching that up there (and also visiting my awesome friend Becky). I won't go into detail, since the internet sort of blew up about the whole LCD Soundsystem retirement thing last week (this piece was my favourite). But I will say that I'm glad I got to see my favourite band of the last decade and one of my favourite live acts ever one last time... in New York with a friend I hadn't seen in far too long to boot.
Back on the home front, there's not a whole lot (but still enough to keep you occupied) going on this weekend, but next weekend is jam packed.
There's a bunch of shows on Friday the 15th, but I'd point out two fundraisers that are both for causes worth throwing some cash at and also boast pretty sweet line ups.
Wizerdz, Mode Moderne, Phonecalls, and Keep Tidy play the ANZA, which is a Music Waste fundraiser.
And, Hospital Blonde, Feral Living, Watermelon, Koban, and Murhaus play Gam Gallery to raise money for Britney from Koban's aunt, who has cancer.
Saturday the 16th is record store day, which means Red Cat, Zulu, Neptoon, Scratch, and Zoo Zhop are all hosting in-stores with some of the city's best bands (see the sidebar for the full line ups) and a ton of rad looking exclusive releases (PDF). I'm stoked to see Boogie Monster perform their long overdue debut LP in full at Zoo Zhop and pick up copies of the Nirvana, Sonic Youth, and KRS compilation reissues.
