The Girl that gets the B-Sides......"for the love of music"....


9:49 AM

music: tom waits-early years vol 2 / neil young-decade --------Thursday JON BRION at the largo, THEN THE VACATION at the kibbitz room
my mood on the way to the largo last night was very mellow, mainly because i was listening to tom waits.
i was feeling like having a cup of tea with a friend or something, even after the shows. but during the shows i was very energized and ready to be rocked.
double the fun last night! I saw jon brion then the vacation and i have to say both shows are in my top 50. jon ran a little later than usual for a thursday night but i didn't mind, he was into it and even did a experimental was my bloody valentine. i had such a huge smile on my face! i drove up alone and ended up sitting at a table with my buddy leo. i had my usual salad and a couple of guiness. i tried to get some largo people to walk across the street to see the vacation but they were all to tired. i was wide awake as i'd just had this red bull type of drink that made me wired and later i had this weird dream.... the vacation did a second set of poetry reading. don't ask cuz i don't know what i was thinking!! i was alseep for fuck's sake!
so anyway we walk over and the vacation were already playing, the crowd was going wild. so much energy in this place! they even did a cover of ... ah man, i just had it ... um. i totally forgot the name but it was surprising to me cuz i've never seen them do a cover. they are getting so much better every time i see them. then while i was watching the drugstore cowgirls this sapranos looking guy kept asking me if i liked them. at first i was nice and said yeah, but then he kept on ....saying "hey they should slow it down a bit, it would be much better dontcha' think?- do you like slow music" ? at this point i wasn't in the mood for a witty comeback i turned to look for anyone that i knew, no one was around. though, this guy standing near me gave me this look of empathy. i smiled. we laughed. the guy that was bothering me kept on once again this time i just took a few steps away from him. i noticed his reaction was to take another drink of his beer and take a few steps towards the band. then i sled out past the smiling guy.
as i was walking out from the room i noticed a photographers flash going off in the front room so i walked by to get a better look, later wishing i hadn't....he was taking photos of these guys, tightly holding their package through their zippers. i didn't get a look at the guys faces because .... i just didn't. but if you want to see a good photo of a dudes package then click here! then go to the jesus lizard half way down. at least david yow was on stage performing!!
seriously, you have to come see the vacation play. they even have a cd for sale now, which i didn't get yet!!

hmm....should i go see jon brion tonight or holly golightly at spaceland or beulah at the troubadour??!! all of these shows are gonna be great.

what is everyone listening to these days? tell me your top 5.
have a good w/e. S
