Report from last LCD Sound System show at Madison Square Garden: Guy from great band Cheeseburger just did “man on street” interviews in front of MSG during LCD intermission on the jumbotrons! Shows you don’t have to be young and cute to do great interviews
Migu and legendary Mike Watt on bass. I Missed chance at interview w Watt but got Beijing exports Carsick Cars to talk about the the Chinese music scene. Check em out.
Its the closest the moon has been to earth in 18 years. Its huge!
Now this type of situation is the coolest thing about sxsw: I hear J Mascus from Dinosaur Jr’s voice floating through the air. I follow the sound for 8 blocks to an unknown outdoor venue, go in for free and walk right up to the front of stage to enjoy J sitting there w just a loud distorted acoustic guitar soloing and singing, he’s just sitting in a chair in the sun. Absolutely amazing!
Horrible photo but great to walk by and hear rippin metal from Animals as Leaders on the street, stopped in and its the “metal sucks” showcase at Habana
