What a great week, what more could you ask of a city? Ghostland Observatory was a very special night. I will preach about them any chance I get from now on. It has to be one of the most crowded shows I have ever seen at Emo's. The atmosphere is strange, not your usual crowd. Some kids are there to dance some are there to see a band. And you get both. People are onstage, people are on the back bleachers, dancing their asses off. It was truly a special night and they are on to very great things. If they come anywhere near you go see them.
The Yeah Yeah Yeah's at Stubbs, started off a little rocky. The opening band Ex-Models were horrible. I very rarely badmouth a show. I often choose to not say anything at all if I didn't have a good time. But if anyone is going to see the YYY's and want to get there early take your time and avoid the nonsense that was Ex-Models, sorry...
But all was forgotten and forgiven when Karen O took stage. She is such an amazing burst of energy on stage. They played a very balanced set with a dab both albums and their debut E.P. They played an acoustic version of "Maps" and my favorite "Y Control". It was a perfect end to a busy week. I have to thank the unofficial sponsors of this week Red Bull and Jack Daniels. Sorry about no post on Friday, a little burnt out. But I'm good now.
Oh and Kasabian will be in town on November 20th at La Zona Rosa, tickets on sale this week.
