It's been pretty quiet on the concert front for me. I spent my concert money on Raptors tickets. About 2 weeks ago or so, I saw Beck with Cage the Elephant, Spoon and Sunflower Bean. All the bands were great!

Coming up:Fontaines D.C. in September
Ladytron- October
Orville Peck- December

I want tickets to this too! That would be cool. Be just 2 blocks away from my apartment if I were still in SF.

Of course I would alsocworry about falling asleep if I went to the show... :lol:

Finally caught Idles at The Wiltern Theater in LA last night.

Really, really great band, excellent show with tons of energy from everyone onstage and in the audience. Played a pretty straight ahead 90 minute set - probably the first time in years I've gotten out of a show by 10:30pm. About 8 songs each from their 2 studio albums and the cover of "Cry To Me." Opened with "Colossus." Many of their songs stretched out to long jams. Several instances of not just the singer Joe Talbot but also the guitarist going crowd surfing out in the audience who absolutely supported them from start to finish. It's like seeing early 80's Exploited crossed with Bon Scott era AC/DC. They often exhibit self-deprecating humor and a lot of heart. Maybe my only complaint is frontman Talbot's vox are a bit like a more gutteral version of Social Distortion's Mike Ness. Side note, I think the guitarist wins the award for wearing his guitar higher up near his chin than anyone else on the planet. He may as well be playing his collar bone.

The opening band which I think was called Surfbots was like a throwback to the anonymous, shitty, tuneless punk bands I used to see in punk dives like the Cuckoo's Nest back at the beginning of the 80's. The female singer got points for wading into the audience a couple times but the cheerleader-esque posturing and the barre chord CRASHCRASHCRASHCRASHCRASH 2 guitars and drums monotony grew dull real quick - although there was a few dozen in the pit that seemed to love them and occasionally would get a half hearted moshpit going.

I think if Idles can keep it together and grow on the promise and talent they clearly have, they could a band that is really something much bigger and more special than much of what's out there these days. Right now, they seem to be burning *really* brightly, hopefully they don't flame out too soon like apparently my last favorite "new" band Savages have.

Next stop - Bauhaus at the Palladium.

Idles is playing Lollapalooza Argentina 2020. I would love to go see them, but they're surely going to play 45 min under the sunlight. And I don't really care about the other artists.
I hope they do a sideshow.

I heard them for the first time 2 weeks ago and have been listening to them quite a lot since. Powerful stuff!

They are one of those rare bands that imo, would do just as well in broad daylight on an out door stage as at night with a lighting production.

I might go see The Struts next month, they are playing the House Of Blues near me and they appear to be a fun band to catch. Other than that, I'll probably break down and finally catch Rammstein when they play LA later this year.
