It List: Monday

No Age (Good Records): Starts at 6pm and free. Apparently, dudes didn't show up to their last Good Records in-store, but I've been assured that they will be present and on time this trip.

No Age/Abe Vigoda/Infinite Body (Palladium Loft): I was a bit worried when I heard that this show was going to be in the ballroom, but now that it has been moved upstairs to the more appropriately sized Loft, things are looking good. No Age is another one of those hot button bands at WSJR HQ... some of us really like them while others dismiss them as overhyped and completely uninteresting. I'm in the former camp, even though I can certainly understand the skepticism surrounding a fashionable LA band signed to Sub Pop that mixes ambient/shoegaze with pop punk. It's just that their best songs are so good-- "Cappo" off of the new one and "Boy Void" off of Weirdo Rippers being the best examples. The second coming of punk rock? Probably not, but certainly one of the more interesting bands singed to a major indie like Sub Pop these days. Abe Vigoda is a buzzworthy Southern California post-punk influenced group that rocks quite a bit more consistently than No Age-- they remind me of all kinds of stiff, dry English stuff from the late 70's, and all of it is good. Show up early to see what I mean. Infinite Body sounded very interesting as well in the short time I had to listen to them.

are The Strange Boys opening the No Age show? I had heard they were a late add at the request of No Age and they'll go on at 9.

And the Strange Boys are more interesting how?

What time do shows at the Palladium usually start?

These Are Powers and Miko Mako obliterated these fags on a rooftop party during SXSW. Their set was weak and their stage banter was even weaker. Their record should have been called "Clowns".

The Strange Boys have gotten better since they learned how to shotgun skunk weed and crack from each other's buttholes. Hey Weshot, still like 'em?

No Age can't pull it off live, or they didn't last night anyway. Palladium sucks and they wouldn't shut the fuck up on stage. Boy Void as so anemic it was sad. Then there banter shifted towards the crowd and how they weren't "into it" and the crowd were probably thinking that "how can we get into it if it sounds like shit?" and it was downhill from there....

no age is great on headphones, fair on speakers, bad through a p.a.

strangely enough, of the four times in a variety of venues, good records was the best i'd ever seen them. still rather just listen to the record really fucking loud.

good records has pretty good sound. some other bands that have sounded like shit at venues around town have sounded really good there.
