Bumbershoot 2010- KEXP Lounge


So, this year at Bumbershoot, quite by accident, I discovered the KEXP lounge. I mean, I'd read about it every year but never attended a show, however this year, The Raveonettes were one of the performers, so I knew I couldn't miss it. Sharin FooWe dutifully lined up a half an hour early at the booth, not realy knowing what to expect, but when we finally entered the venue, it was clear that we were in for something special. A nice small venue that sounded great for the live recording they were performing.Sharin FooAfter the show, the band even broke down their own gear so we got to meet the band.Glen and SharinVisqueen was a band I loved last year at Bumbershoot. I was just as happy to see them this year, except even happier to be sitting in the lovely KEXP lounge. Rachel Flotard Cristina BautistaRachel Flotard They were charming and funny and I love them so check them out.Another favourite, and oddly, someone I've never seen live before, was The Thermals. Pillar Of Salt is still one of my favourite songs and the new album has another potential all time fav in I Don't Believe You.Here is a video I took of a different song. Awesome right??We also saw The Engish Beat who are oldies but goodies from my youth. Tenderness (same guy but he was with Gneral Public at the time) is another of my all time favourite songs, even to this day.Dave WakelingAntonee First[...]

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros -May 31, 2010 at the Commodore Ballroom


One of my favourite bands. Alex Ebert can command a crowd wearing nothing but what looks like dirty pajamas. So much love in the crowd and on the stage. Magical

Wilco - Livecity Yaletown February 13, 2010


Jeff Tweedy
The 2010 Vancouver Olympics are more then an athletic event. It's also a big party and celebration for all of Vancouver to enjoy. Free concerts are abundant and I'll try to cover a few of them.

Today was one of my favourite bands, Wilco. I've seen them a few times, and they were better today then I've ever seen.

Jeff Tweedy

Sure it rained. Hell, it poured at times, but as Wilco says, in Wilco (the song) As they say in their song, Wilco (the song), ( a bit or paraphrasing here)

Tired of being exposed to the cold?

Wilco, Wilco
Wilco will love you, baby

The Raveonettes - November 5, 2009 at the Venue in Vancouver


Sharin FooI love the Raveonettes. They are one of my favourite bands and proof of that is that show up at least 3 times in the pages of this blog. Musically, I never get tired of listening to their records, and the new one, In And Out Of Control is amazing.Sune Rose and SharinThey were back with as a full band after their last visit with just an added drummer. Speaking of drummers, I have to mention that this was my second show in a week which featured a stand up drummer. Trend alert. Anyway, they also had a bassist this time, which really helped fill out their sound.Sharin FooThe Raveonettes are sonically beautiful. Noisy guitars and odd haunting harmonies that reckon to another time. My problem with them is that they are so boring live! They barely talk, they barely acknowledge the audience, and they spend half the time performing in either complete darkness or under strobe lights.Sune Rose WagnerAfter Art Brut, it was hard to not to be slightly disappointed.Sharin FooThe night started at the cellar to see Ben Sigston perform as part of the Peak Performance Project. If you've read this far, check him out and please vote for him here. Also, you can get some free downloads just by checking out www.bensigston.comBen Sigston[...]

Art Brut- November 3, 2009, The Biltmore Cabaret


Eddie Argos
I saw Art Brut the first time at Bumbershoot two years ago. I was totally blown away, by their energy, and the fun they brought to their show. Something I almost never see anymore.
Jasper Future
Eddie isn't afraid to write about his life in all it's embarrassing boring glory. Whether it's about old girlfriends, his brother, or his love of DC Comics. The songs are great on their own, but seeing them live adds an extra dimension as Eddie adds lots of details to the stories. As an example, during the song DC Comics And Chocolate Milkshakes, Eddie gave an extensive and hilarious overview of a tour they took of the actual DC Comics Headquarters. A video of that tour is HERE if you want to check it out, but I assure you that Eddie's version is better.
Eddie and Jasper
Although they didn't play my favourite song (Moving To L.A.) they did play many of some of my new favourites from their new album, Art Brut vs Satan including Alcoholics Unanimous which includes the best merch tie in ever. The song includes the line, "Bring Me Tea, Bring Me Coffee" which is blazed across coffee mugs.

Manic Street Preachers- September 22, 2009 in Vancouver at the Commodore Ballroom


James Dean BradfieldI think I've finally figured out why I like Twitter. It's like a search engine for everything you actually want to find. I like taking photos, but I don't particularly like writing reviews of the shows I go to. Mostly, you could say that at best, I write commentary. With that in mind, I am going to direct you readers to a review I found on Twitter. It's from an amazing website called Guttersnipe, and I urge you to check it out. The review is HERE and I pretty much have nothing to add to it, except for a bit of personal commentary. I saw the Manic Street Preachers when they came to Vancouver ten years ago. I don't remember that much about it except that every interview mentioned the disappearance of Richie Edwards. It's only now with the release of Journal For Plague Lovers, which features lyrics left behind by Edwards, that I can appreciate his contribution to the band. My final commentary is that this show felt like the Goldilocks show. It had been a busy week with the Hold Steady, Arctic Monkeys, and Manic Street Preachers. If you read my thoughts on the other shows, then you'll understand why I felt this show was just right. Great music, amazing energy and genuine engagement with the crowd. Nicky WIre[...]

Arctic Monkeys - September 20, 2009 at the Malkin Bowl


Alex Turner
I've never actually seen a rock show at the Malkin Bowl. In fact I'd pretty much forgotten it was there at all, but that was where the Arctic Monkeys played. It's a gorgeous setting and it was a beautiful evening. When the band took the stage the crowd was ecstatic.
All that potential for something magical was not matched by the band on stage. I'd missed seeing the Arctic Monkeys once before at SXSW when their scheduled set was hours late and we just had to leave. I was really looking forward to finally seeing them as I loved the debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. What was missing from Sunday's show was any expression of personality by anyone on the stage.
Alex Turner has a lot of charisma and looks the part of brooding indie rocker and musically, they sounded great, but they just appeared to be bored or at the very least, introspective. Three albums in, I just think a band should be more engaging with the audience. More flattering and detailed reviews can be found HERE.
