i don’t listen to a lot of music. it’s not that i don’t like it, it’s that i’ve found that when i’m going through a rough patch i’ll obsess over a cd. and that ruins it for me, as i associate the cd with that bad time. so i’m not up on the happenings of the music scene. but sometimes i find a band that i love and they manage to pass the “rough patch” test. spoon is one of them. (quasi and wilco* also pass the test.)
yay! spoon is at first ave this week! my sister and i will be taking my little brother (and his girlfriend) for his 27th birthday. we’ll be at thursday’s show. i’m excited to go, and curious to see what the crowd will be like. the last time i saw spoon was about 4 or 5 years ago at the 400 bar. it was my first show where the majority of the audience was hipsters with ironic t-shirts and bed hair (i guess i missed that whole hipster thing by a few years). and they all stood perfectly still, too cool to move. me, when i’m at a show, listening to a great band and songs i love, dance like a white girl. great music inspires me to move. hopefully i won’t be the only nutty, thirty-something, un-hip chick bouncing around.
*wilco is playing tonight (the 10th) at the northrup.
