I second all of the "contributing here is an enjoyable experience" posts.
The title of this thread is awesome.
Can someone give me an idea of what it's like when a certain musician DJs as opposed to a typical concert set? The frontman from Cold Cave (Wesley Eisold) is DJing at a record store in Hollywood so I want to know if it would be worth the drive, though the thought of a one armed man DJing also sounds pretty legit. Cults are also doing a free show in LA yyyeeeeeee
RO: I love the perspectives of the musicians of the Japanese avant-garde, particularly in the Onkyo and harsh noise movements. I find it endlessly endearing that the movements use literally opposite means to convey an appreciation of the same thing: subversion of and intrusion upon the every-day. Dead giveaway of some intentions came from a Merzbow interview where he said he makes noise to force people in bustling loud-ass Tokyo to just shut up for once. The appreciation for silence in the nation's underground music is thus a sort of common thread. Just thought someone else might find that really awesome.
Now I'm twice as excited, in addition to seeing Cults Live I will also get to see Zola Jesus live, yay for free shows.
RO: The Stone Roses debut is one of the greatest pop albums ever recorded. I only bring this up because I think I've actually worn out my vinyl copy. That doesn't happen very often (except for that Sun O))) album that the manufacturers sent me nearly cracked in half. Dicks).
RIP Jason Noble.
Rodan and Rachel's were both pretty important bands for me.
