No, not here, though I wish! Hey, all, I want to let you know about an event coming up this Sunday. Bad news: it’s not in New York City. Good news: it takes place in Paramus, New Jersey!

I’m 40 and I Saw Grant Hart Play

Grant Hart, a one-man band who knows how to wage psychic warfare. Well a whole bunch of things have happened lately that I haven’t been blogging about. I’ve seen The Vaselines twice again when they came through Manhattan and Brooklyn in mid-May.  I didn’t bother write about the shows because they have been so extensively covered I didn’t know what else I could add to it and also I wrote about their two shows in the New York City area a year ago. I’ve also got another book coming out sorta soon, Snakes...

Asobi Seksu, Bowery Ballroom, New York City, April 2

Crocodiles, not bad, but definitely an off-night! This was Asobi Seksu‘s big homecoming gig, the last in a long international tour.  Somehow, though, something was missing.  I dunno, it just felt kinda joyless, if I may say so, though the music sounded great and Asobi Seksu (a duo of singer and keyboard player Yuki Chikudate and guitarist and vocalist James Hanna), rounded out with a touring bassist and drummer, were tight.  Or maybe it was just me who felt empty at the end of the night.
