There are a couple other acts which I'm also sort of leaning towards but I think these are must sees for their next tours or even if they're just playing one date somewhere in this half of the country, perhaps cause for a road trip. And then there are the acts that if they ever reunite I will be all over like flies on excrement.
Hm. Foo Fighters in Stockholm on February 6.... And it might be nice to see Jimmy Eat World, but I think Australia is right out for now.
Recently I've been talking with my friends more about music, though in most cases it's just talk about things I already knew about which I'm discovering other people also enjoy. I've in general had a difficult time (or maybe it just seems that way to me) discovering music which is new (to me) and interesting. So, perhaps I should also ask "yinz" to recommend things to me that I might not have heard before, or perhaps didn't appreciate the first time around.
Incidentally, the Zales commercial for diamond earrings with the Bowie/Mercury collaboration "Under Pressure" always flips me out for a moment until I remember they're making a crack about how diamonds are formed. Oh yeah, and White Stripes on Conan? Kicked posterior.
