It List: Monday

The photos from last night's event are up in our pictures section.  I would like to thank all the acts, attendees, and restaurant staff that made it so enjoyable.  Sincerely, thanks.


George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic (House Of Blues): The first thirteen minutes of Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain" are some of the best thirteen minutes of music I have ever heard. Just mind-meltingly great. The borderline ridiculous soloing on the gloomy title-track abruptly transforming into the upbeat gospel pop of the second track, "Can You Get To That" is something I consistently return to after being worn out by countless uninspired and unsolicited promo tracks.   At age 68, George Clinton is still touring 200 days out of the year, and I don't know if he would actually play anything off of this record, but I would go just on the off-chance that he would.  His website also credits his hair stylist, and I actually think that's awesome.  

Blood of Our Enemies/My Son My Executioner /Upon a Burning Body/Silene (The Lounge): My Son My Executioner is a pretty tough band.  Want to know why? Just check out this tour route they recently embarked upon:

That has to be the manliest tour I've ever heard of. I'm being dead serious. That looks brutal.
