Top 13s

Spent the evening making and discussing top 13 favorite songs by various bands.....here's some of mine...

(In no particular order)

INXS

i'm just a man
the stairs
faith in each other
devil inside


Smashing Pumpkins

thirty-three
ava adore
saturnine
tonight tonight
drown
stand inside your love
in the arms of sleep
obscured
muzzle
let me give the world to you
cherry
everlasting gaze
xyu


Radiohead

street spirit
fake plastic trees
the bends
just
black star
how to disappear completely
no surprises

long snake moan
the dancer

the garden
we float

the whores hustle and the hustlers whore
you said something


Spoon

the guestlist/the execution
reservations
anything you want
the fitted shirt
paper tiger
i turn my camera on
the way we get by
the delicate place
the two sides of monsieur valentine
i summon you
my mathematical mind
take a walk

Concert: John Vanderslice

From my rough estimation, I've seen JV 6 or 7 times since 2001, but the last time I saw him was 2003 which I regret now since his shows are always good.

I chose to go to the San Diego show instead of the LA show because it was on my day off and I think I like san diego crowds better. Of course the downside is the 2 hour drive each way. The show was at the Casbah, which reminded me a lot of Emos....same type of atmosphere, good crowds, etc. I'm sure if I lived in the area, I'd go there a lot, but of course I don't, so I suck.

Here's some of the songs he played:

Angela
Up Above the Sea
Underneath the Leaves
Keep the Dream Alive
Time Travel is Lonely
Letter to the East Coast (guest singer)
Trance Manual
Exodus Damage
Dear Sarah Shu
White Plains
Nikki Oh Nikki
Do You Remember?
My Old Flame

The JV/ Dave on drums combo was cool, nice to hear the songs a bit stripped down, wish he played "Radiant With Terror" though. someone asked if he was going to play "Speed Lab" (from his 1st album) and he said that they didn't know it, I found that funny because from the first time I saw JV, there's always been a song someone requests that they don't know.

Definitely looking forward to the new album in July and seeing him again in the fall.
