Joseph Stalin's 115th Wet Dream
The St. Vincent show was "largely acoustic"? How does electric guitars, keyboards, and Moog synthesizers = acoustic?
Bitches everywhere anxiously await the return of the McRib.
The Spin failed to mention the epic version of "Real Emotional Trash" they played before the encore that featured a spacey jam ending in the chorus from the Grateful Dead song, "Deal". I know "teasing" the Dead is a huge faux pas by hipster standards (not a dig at The Spin, btw) but I thought it was badass! Also who tours in support of a brand spankin' new album and plays a handful of newer, unrecorded songs? Stephen Malkmus does, damnit!
Great show! I wouldn't have missed this one for all the weed in Portland.
You would think that if an artist opts for the "play a classic album because I have no creativity left in the tank" model, he would at least rehearse a show that features that entire album. I'm so glad I didn't waste my money on this overrated garbage.
All Jack wanted for his birthday was a stripper with a pearl necklace but his friends got it SO WRONG!
M. Ward seemed pretty wasted to me. I thought he was gonna spill his drink on the piano several times and he was rambling like an idiot in between songs (i.e. before playing Daniel Johnston's "Story of an Artist"). I'm a big M. Ward fan but that shit was WEAK. I did get a kick out of Kurt Wagner's cheat sheet taped to his forearm during "Oh Lonesome Me" though.
