Here We Go Magic - June 1st - @ 9:30 Club
With all the exposure Grizzly Bear is receiving these days, tonight's show at the 9:30 Club suddenly became a tough ticket. I was there dutifully to see Here We Go Magic and report back. Here's how they looked:
Yeah. Awesome. Not the band's fault, but we had one of those failures to communicate today. Made me think of this clip as I was heading back. And this is the second time I've had the pleasure of talking through a slot in a window at the 930 only to walk away empty handed. Tell All Your Friends, indeed. So instead I caught this act at the U Street Cardozo metro stop on my way back. I had seen them setting up on my first pass and noticed how suspect they all seemed. They looked like they had just gotten off Mötley Crüe's tour bus. A mess.
So I can't tell you how much Here We Go Magic licked balls tonight - or didn't. Same for Grizzly Bear. I'm sure they were fantastic and they got Obama to come out with cheeseburgers for everyone or some shit...
