the spoon show was as expected: great music, too much to drink, and lots of people standing still. looking over the balcony from the second floor, i saw a sea of heads, and none of them were bobbing… ah, the days of dancing like a fool and smoking at first ave are long gone. i’m so sorry you kids missed out!

in honor of spoon the band, here’s a collage featuring spoon the utensil… i created this piece over 4 years ago. larger image after the jump…

spoon @ first ave : oct 10 & 11

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.

my beautiful friend lucia will be at crave this friday, october 12, 8:30 PM to 11:30. lucia will be singing with the laura caviani trio, along with chris bates on bass and david schmalenberger on drums. check out the food in this new restaurant with a full bar: all their meat is 100% natural and free range with no hormones or antibiotics, and their fresh produce comes from local farmers with everything made from scratch.
