I wasn't here Monday

Because I went to a Radiohead concert. Here's a run down of what happened:


  • It was a 4-5 hour drive, and I was fucking exhausted. Took me about 30 minutes to regain some energy. I got there early so I could get good lawn seats, and so I could get a good parking space.
  • First things I saw at the parking lot: a guy vomiting in the bushes and some hippies. Fortunately, not to many.
  • Beer was $10, so no getting drunk tonight.
  • Cool T-Shirts I saw: A Neu! shirt, a Corgi T-Shirt (I love Corgis), and a Jesu T-Shirt.
  • Minimal Techno music played before sets. I recognized the Vlasdiv (sic) Delay and Basic Channel tracks.
  • Opening act was Grizzlybear. They were alright, and came off as nice guys.
  • Before Radiohead's set, there were the obligatory ads. I can happily say I've never heard a Jonas Brothers song in my life. Also Bill Maher has a really obvious receding hairline.
  • Radiohead were great. "National Anthem", "Body Snatchers", "Idioteque", "Pyramid Song", "Dollars and Cents", "There There", and "Everything In It's Right Place" are fucking experiences live. So yeah, a really stellar live show full of energy from both the band and the crowd.
  • There was an asshole behind me (obviously on E) who kept bumping into me, so I moved. He looked a lot like Marvin.
  • Traffic was a pain in the ass. Me and my friends played "Name That Tune", and my pal Shawn "You know what would be really funny? If care could hump each other"
  • Got back to my place on Tuesday.



So there's the lowdown.
