i never get to catch conan, sadly. either i am watching a cops marathon or i am working but either way i never watch conan or really any other late night gab fest. the other night sure would have been cool to watch cause conan had of montreal as the featured musical guest and youaintnopicasso has their tripped out performance up for your viewing pleasure. i have never seen an of montreal show, although i have a bunch of recorded stuff. for those that have seen them, are they pretty good? are they worth checking out?
so i am on another huge hold steady/lftr pllr kick the past few days – it happens every month or so. i know its that i try to live my life vicariously through mr finn’s tales of self destruction and my longing to relive those days that i find some kind of kinship with. unfortunately, my days of recklessness now involves a few beers on the back porch and an overdose of toy story 2 and/or diego and dora the explorer.
anyway, here is everyone’s favorite brooklynites by way of the fabulous city of minneapolis, the hold steady performing at last years lollapalooza. its a great recording, btw.
2. the swish 5. banging camp 9. stevie nix 10. hornets 11. chips ahoy!
another piece of music that i have been listening to a lot lately, for some reason, if “everyday sunshin” by fishbone. i dont know how it made its way back into my head after not hearing it for quite a few years.
