Here We Go Fuck Yourself

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...

That really sucks you had to go through the same thing again...but it was worth it for the title of the post.

Granted I don't know all you guys that well, but I kinda hope that in the distant future when people stop reading (and writing) blogs, that this is what the DC Rock Club will start turn its attention to - performing impromptu jazz odysseys atop subway stations.

That impromptu jazz odyssey was probably more entertaining than Grizzly Bear.

I like how at the end you can hear a few whoops and yeahs from the "audience".

there were no Obamaburgers, but Ed did hand out some 9:30 Club cupcakes before they started their set. It was sweet ;)

I have decided that I could easily go another 15 years without another cupcake. Enough already. First it was tapas with their tiny plates (ruining the menu at Bar Pilar and other DC establishments). Now we have micro-cakes and mini-burgers. Cupcakes and sliders. I know we are an obese nation, but dwarfing food items is not the answer.

This street combo also backs up T.V. John Langworthy.
