I guess this leaked a couple days early. *edit* Looks like they just deleted the news post off the website, but I managed to save a copy (see below). Wow, such a solid lineup. You do not want to miss this! If I was only able to go to one San Francisco festival this summer and had to choose between this and Outside Lands, Treasure Island would be the easy winner. Even though The Strokes are one of my favorite bands and are headlining OL, I would choose Treasure Island because this line up is j...

CONFLICT 10/23: Interpol @The Greek or AIR @The Shrine???

There's also Shakira at the Staples Center going which is worth mentioning. The big toughie for me is Interpol or Air though. I was lucky enough to snag a pair of GA tickets to Air, which is a small standing pit in front of the orchestra. I bought them during the presale, in the middle of a dentist appointment, with no wi-fi. Yep, I convinced the staff to steal an ethernet cable for me and stall until I got my tickets. Get your tickets from Ticketmaster here. A couple other pluses for Air is ...

6/28 Review: Tame Impala @ The Echo

My friend from Brooklyn and I went to this free show on Monday. The vocals were crisp and less distorted than on the album. Overall great energy and the crowd was totally feeling it. The crowd was made of the typical mix of big messy hair, plaid, and skinny jean wearing indie kids, along with a few random old guys. My friend said NYC shows are a lot more homogenous and was surprised by how diverse shows in LA are. I was surprised by how many tall guys (lots of guys well over 6'2) were in the ...

News: Not another show review..

Instead of taking the standard approach of writing a show review about how amazing or horrible a band played, I thought I'd turn around and review the crowd for each show that I go to. I'm interested in the types of people and demographics each artist/band attracts. In the end, crowd response is pretty clutch.
