dirty dancefloors and dreams of naughtiness

  • Arctic Monkeys did not disappoint last night. The band put on a killer show and, for once, I wasn't the only one dancing! There were drunken louts, singalongs to unreleased songs, and good times all around. Shout outs to fellow bloggers Rebecca and Dart who I caught up with at the show!
  • Morrissey's describes his new album as “the most beautiful, perhaps the most gentle, so far”.
  • Chart has reviewed Art Brut's recent Toronto show.
  • Pitchfork didn't totally destroy Babyshambles in their review of 'Down In Albion'.
  • In case you don't have it yet here's the new single from The Strokes, "Juicebox".
  • The Beastles mash-up!

    Lee's was friggin' packed. I was pretty much stuck by the mixing board. Was good to see you, even if just from afar (and our favourite stagecrasher as well, i guess).

    Good gig.

    Ack! I looked around but I didn't see ya - I was in the front, to the right of the boorish louts. The show was a killa for sure...$10! Can't go wrong at that price :)

    G - I saw you as I was driving away at the end of the night! Tragic!

    Kat - I was at the raised bit to the left of the stage. My friend was the girl that got onstage and danced during the 2nd song. I was also getting high fives from the drunken louts for some inexplicable reason.

    Anonymous - Thanks! That makes me feel better about myself too!

    Your (girl) friend rules. The way she ended up on stage and just hung out there so casually was rad!!!

    Yeah I checked on pitchfork's opinion of babyshambles. They did pretty well, because pitchfork can be pretty harsh (I know weezer's last album sucked by a .4?). Thanks for the mp3, if you recall I requested it :).

    What do you think of Tom Vek? I think he's cooler than beck and kinda dreamy.

    Drunken louts spoiled the Mercury Lounge show for me, but drunken louds made the Bowery Ballroom show. The music's good, so who really cares?
