Best Gigs of 2005 (that I went to)
1 SABOTEUR at spooky - of course. the singer is HOT
2 MASTODON at quattro - sick. blew the shit out of weak cocktail party goths isis.
3 ARCADE FIRE at summersonic - just a real joyful time. they were having fun and everybody appreciated it. should have watched the whole thing instead of slipping out to see interpol like the lackey i am.
4 SHINS at quattro - the first leg of the 3-gigs-in-osaka-in-a-week-a-thon. wasnt substantially so fantastic, but they were cool guys and came back to play some new tracks they hadnt intended to coz they loved us so.
5 SONIC YOUTH - lee freaking out: I CANT PLAY RAIN ON TIN! I CANT PLAY RAIN ON TIN! and thurston being all, WHATEVER. lets play rain on tin!
all you guys out in TV land?
