You've got a damn nice lineup of shows coming up, I'm especially jealous of FJM, Viet Cong, and Sleater-Kinney.
Songkick, Last.fm, and local venues' websites.
If you live in or near New York, then use Brooklyn Vegan.
>Swans with Angel Olsen
Oh god I wish I could see the reactions of all the people who will go there for Angel Olsen when Swans come on
What was it like? I read on here that its 2 hours long and they take breaks, is it true? what was the set like? Who opened up for them? i got angel olsen lol
did you buy your swans ticket? also california deathfest seems very dank, and i know for a fact you ain't going 2 deadfest so fuck off
They do not take breaks and there is no encore. It's very loud and visceral, you feel the music almost as much as you hear it. I got Pharmakon and Xiu Xiu when I saw them in 2013 and 2014, respectively. This year they've got Xylouris White opening, which should be damn good.
I think the OP was underage and got called out, was that it?
She only played a 20 minute set, but it was pretty cool. She banged on a modified piece of sheet metal and screamed a lot, she also came into the audience for a while and crawled around like a fucking demon.
don't be a bitch come to this show we can go back to my house for the after party
what bands are on tour this year that we know of? I'm just trying to see which artists are available to see soon, already have Of Montreal coming up and maybe St. Vincent now too.
Anyone seen St. Vincent before? How is it?
For the record, the only of those shows I'm probably gonna go to is Swans. EW is on the same day ;_;
tfw poorfag and go to like 10% of shows i'm interested at most
LA BROS HMU
i do see dozens of shows a year i just go to warehouse shows that are 2 underground for last.fm paying to go to a venue is shit i saw dj spinn last friday for 10 bucks in an abandoned downtown LA watehouse
Off to see Flatbush Zombies in March, then Grouper in April
Typing this out I realized that these two couldn't really possibly be any more different from eachother in terms of atmosphere etc
>tfw eclectic as fuck
But yeah I might do a few other things but those are the only definites so far
I'm incredibly hyped for Grouper, been waiting for a chance to see her for years
>Swans and Angel Olsen
What a weird combo
>Who opened up for them?
>tfw Jenny Hval opened for them when I went to see Swans and I fucking love Jenny Hval
Honestly I was half there just to see her
But yeah like people have said, no breaks, very loud, and the Swans set is generally about 50% new stuff to 50% TBK/Seer
>A Place To Bury Strangers
I've got a friend who's really into them, I quite like them but wouldn't consider myself a fan
Apparently their live shows are insane and your eardrums WILL explode
???? im what u would call an "oldfag" on this board buddy
sorry ur mad my music is better then ur music pussy boy
http://www.last.fm/user/hamtrax go drone me while ur at it
>tfw go to college in the middle of nowhere
>tfw I have to drive 3-4 hours to see any decent bands play
2/24 Ariel Pink
2/27 Screaming Females
3/02 Hundred Waters
3/08 Of Montreal
4/13 the Mountain Goats
Andrew Jackson Jihad, Swans, and Perfume Genius are all playing here within a 5 day span at the same venue in March, but I'll probably be out of town for it. ;-;
The west side of LA sucks for shows. Most of the bands I want to see in are playing at least an hour or much more away.
i live much closer to pittsburgh but me and banjoman are driving out to cleveland for nmh, we already have tickets and all that. not sure about the chances of me seeing of montreal or swans tho.
but if you hmu on last.fm ill be sure to let you know if i decide to go to either
