i'd definitely say it's an album that takes a few listens to click, though I appreciate if you don't like it at all you probably won't want to!

Anyone who follows 'tour' patterns reckon that they'll add an English leg to this: http://www.americanmary.com/tour.php?

Tickets go on sale tomorrow for the Cork show, but I'm not really looking forward to forking out another $200-$250 to visit Cork for a day. There's a bit of a gap between Croatia and Cincinnati so they could add more dates, but it could also be rest time.

They've been near the top of my 'MUST SEE LIVE' list for 3 years now, so I have to do it regardless (and once I start living in London/England and am living off my own money, I'll end up being even more tight with money than I already am, so I gotta spend it now) :P

looks like they are mainly doing festivals rather than full tour. I'd say it's very likely they end up playing a UK festival - but it'd be one of the bigger ones and I just noticed their Cork gig is Glastonbury weekend, so I wouldn't be at all surprised if they are also playing that (which is already sold out & impossible to get tickets for).

Bluesfest lineup came out today. http://ottawabluesfest.ca/

Maybe: Belle and Sebastian, Animal Collective, Sharon Van Etten, BB King

The last concert I went to was a band called Sunn O))) and it was the best show I have ever seen. To this day I am still blown away just thinking about it.

Love Sun O))) as well. Last sunday Cannibal Corpse was playing at Le Bataclan, with Devildriver, The Black Dahlia Murder and Hour of Penance. It was a great show and I bought a really cool Hour of Penance t-shirt:

I just looked at the line-up; The Cat Empire :lol: I didn't even know they were still around. Animal Collective, Weezer and Camera Obscura are the only ones of any interest to me. Haven't even heard of 98% of them :P

Kill me. I forgot about The National tickets earlier and figured they'd last a while anyway. All sold out. Feck, feck, feck, feck. :'(

urgh I hate touts. They are the reason it sells out so fast. I wouldn't rush into buying off ebay 'cause there'll probably be people selling them on there right up to the time of the show and the ones who sell straight away just pull the price out of their ass hoping for desperate fans like yourself to stump up.

Yeah I know :( I've never forgotten to do anything like this before. I'm kicking myself. I was getting ready for work and mum was preparing dinner and it slipped my mind. UGH. I'm hoping it'll be a blessing in disguise and they'll end up doing a show in a handier location as you said.

HOLY SHIT Just found out that the opener for the Sigur Ros concert I'm attending at the 29th is Tim Hecker. I think I might be more excited for that.

I have seen at least a thousand concerts, it's very difficult to highlight any in particular. I will instead mention the artist I was most looking forward to see live for the past 4 or 5 years and never will be able to. Jason Molina just passed away.

Just came back from a concert. I'm straight up mad at how the people acted during Tim Hecker's performance. EWW AMBIENT MIGHT AS WELL KEEP TALKING BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. I could barely hear his music but from what I've heard I loved it.

Sigur Ros was pretty great as well. They didn't play any of my favorite songs and quite a few of them was the filler ones, but how they did the concert with the fabric, lightbulbs, and videos more than made up for it.

The National have just announced more concert dates for Europe in November :) One in London and one in Manchester. Tickets go on sale in a few days, but I dunno which city I'll be closest to then. I'll probably go with London to be safe.

Stones would be fun, but I wouldn't pay £100 to see them in Hyde Park. you'd probably end up half a mile away and I've heard bad things about the sound at big shows there (e.g. people were complaining Springsteen wasn't anywhere near loud enough last yr).

Kinda jealous of friends who are going to Glastonbury though, with them headlining and this lineup:

I saw him last Summer with Olivia Tremor Control in one of their last concerts. It was no doubt one of the best experiences I ever had.
