George Michael in DC would be worth the travel alone just to see him perform Shoot The Dog live in Bush's back yard whilst he is still in office*. I really hope he does it justice with the full live show. If you haven't seen it YOUTUBE!!!!!

* and to see Deco of course :D

Lookie this event in DC this month - book lecture on...

Thurston Moore and Byron Coley: No Wave
Tuesday, July 29, 2008 7 p.m.

Sparking the musical genesis of post-punk, and also the stomping ground of young artists and filmmakers from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Jim Jarmusch, the No Wave scene in New York was enormously influential. Thurston Moore, iconic rocker and a founding member of the post-punk band Sonic Youth, and esteemed music writer and editor Byron Coley, both experienced the No Wave scene first-hand. In their new book, No Wave: Post Punk. Underground. New York. 1976–1980 (Abrams 6/08), Moore and Coley selected 150 unforgettable images and compiled hundreds of hours of personal interviews to document this avant-garde art and music movement. In this riveting presentation of music, art, and memories, Moore and Coley discuss the rarely documented No Wave period and sign copies of their book.

The George Michael gig wasn't great. On the up side, his voice sounded great and he's a phenomenal performer/talent. And I loved the Wham! songs he performed best of all. On the down side, he was being cautious with his voice and not hitting the high notes or doing anything virtuoso. (In fact, he kept holding the microphone out to the audience to do the singing.) Worse, there were 3 giant video screens behind him showing bright kalidescopic images...which had NOTHING to do with George Michael or his songs. He was a tiny speck clad in all-black with this 'spectacular' light show behind him. As if I were there to see some stoopid light show?? Not. I left the show early, not too long after intermission. Bored.

Beyond shocked at that. Thought he was brilliant.

He wasn't terrible. It just wasn't a good presentation of him. Over-produced.

So, I went to see Cut Copy last night. The music was every bit as good as the album(s) - in fact, it was exactly like the albums - no variation. Very energetic and awesome sounding. However, I *hated* the band's visual presentation. Sure, they had a light show behind them, which I guess was supposed to add some visual interest. But their hair and clothes were totally BLAH. Jeans, plaid shirts in washed out colors. No stage presence. If I didn't look at them, I could enjoy the music. If I looked at them, it made me all cross. Thought to myself, I'll buy their albums, but that is the last time I'm ever going to see that band.

Just booked a ticket to see Ladytron at Oxford on Nov 18. Have never seem them live before, but love some of their stuff such as 'Desttory Everything You Touch' and their new 'Ghost' single is pretty good. So interested to see what they are like.

oh good. I'll look forward to seeing them.

Seeing Goldfrapp later this month. They always put on a good show but miss the full on synth stuff from the previous two albums. Thankfully though, Strict Machine and Train normally always get played which are terrific live.
