Those ladies have been on my wishlist for a minute now. I'm not as good at schedule guessing as others, but unless they blow up even more in the next few months, I'm thinking that rather than Friday they would be a Thursday night show, along the lines of Django Django, Japandroids, Alt-J, Father John Misty.
It would take a big conflict for me to miss 'em, whenever they play.
Thursday night is probably more likely, but they are really only just getting across the states this fall. They've opened some dates for QotSA, which is going to help their exposure some. They've got a good handful of songs that they haven't put on wax yet, which suggests to me that there may be an EP or LP sooner rather than later, which would boost them up too.
But yeah, I don't necessarily care when they play, I will be there. They're just too good live to skip.
I was expecting a lot when i saw them, given their live reputation, and they totally surpassed it. What I thought would be a short, intense, serious, and economical set to a small crowd on a last minute show on a Tuesday night ended up being interesting and fun. They played with a lot of humor, let their songs breath, played extended jams, new jams, and really dancey jams. In fact, if they went into a dancier direction with their next album, they would be all the better for it.
This is the one band that has eluded me all year. Would love to see them, anywhere including Bonnaroo!
(I even made sure my 60 year old aunt saw them in SF a few weeks ago )
Why didn't you catch them at Coachella? They were really great.
You know what's funny, while I was packing last night I saw their name on my Coachella sweatshirt and nearly died. They must not have been on my radar at the time, or I totally spaced. Either way, sucks, ugh!
