Saw Superchunk, a 90’s band who’s members are responsible for founding Merge Records, home of bands such as Arcade Fire. Awesome show! Sharon and I parked ourselves up front after the opening band finished. It was at the Biltmore and since that place is so small and the stage is so low it felt like we were seeing them play in someone’s basement. The band even commented about it.
Mac (the singer) and Laura (the bassist) were bouncing around the whole time. Drummer was incredible. Reminded me of seeing Dave Grohl at Richards back in the day when he was touring with Queens of the Stone Age. At the end Mac and the drummer, John, traded places mid-song and jumped into a jam of Black Flag’s My War which is one of my all-time favorite songs. Then John led the band through a Misfits cover to close out the main set. Two encores later and we were ecstatic to have seen a band I never thought I’d get the chance to see live.
I haven’t been writing here as much the past few months. Work’s kept me pretty busy and I’ve felt like life’s been a little too hectic for me. So I’ve slowed down the pace a bit. In fact I probably won’t be going to many more shows past the ones I already have tickets too.
Time for sleep!
