Where have I been?
Sleeping off a cold this week leads to a boring me. I think the 12+ hours spent at Sunset Junction last weekend is what really did me in with the sun, dealing with the crowds, all whilst nursing a slight hangover from Friday night.
Present Tense, Powercords, Monsters are Waiting, Lavender Diamond, The Eels, Bang Sugar Bang, Pu$y Cow, and ending with my first viewing of the band Cake Cutter.
Bands enjoyed from afar :
Great northern, the little ones, and a bunch of DJs
A quick review :
Corey and I think Monsters Are Waiting get a little weirder each time we see them. This show I noticed longer warped intros to all the songs, other than that they were great.
Lavender Diamond had a cutesy singer with a matching cutesy folk rock sound. They're opening for The Decemberists for some October shows which I would consider a good match. Will check them out agian.
The Eels were pretty cool - this losanjealous.com review sums them up perfectly.
On the Kiss or Kill stage at El Cid, Cakecutter were just crazy fun on many levels.
From their site:
- What do you get when you take a slammin' dual-drumming rhythm section that works like a tightly-knit machine with thunderous bass tone, add a flamboyant, drooling crossdressing guitarist that shreds to the bone and throw in a spazmatic, charismatic and melodic female frontman who rocks all over the stage like a Ritalin kid on a severe sugar high?"
I don't have an ending to this but other stuff happened that I'll write about.
Things like strange conversations I eavesdropped on in McDonalds
Things like being pointed out and wanting to be anywhere other then steps I stood on.
