last few months
Dweezel Zappa - nice show of Frank Zappa thruout his career. Really good setlist and great musicians but we had a hard time really getting into it because we saw Frank several times with the original musicians who played many of these songs and it some how ruined it for me.

Florence & the Machine - NIce to see Florence in a medium sized venue and up close. Florence continues to impress me live. She is full of energy and dances and sings all over the stage and into the audience. I even got my head rubbed by Florence and she looked into my eyes (killer). While she isn't BCBer's cup of tea she impresses me.

Image

Richard Ashcroft - just love Richard live, it was nice to see him just with an acoustic guitar playing a mix of his solo stuff and plenty of classic Verve songs.
Image

Courtney Barnett - Been a fan since seeing her at CMJ festival with about 30 people. This was a new album release show so she played the entire new album plus a few other songs. She still has the energy and love the guitar feedback jams she does live and you don't hear it as much on the albums.

Image

Clearwater Festival - caught one day of the festival that I've gone to a few times since 84. It's the oldest ongoing festival in America going back to 66 when it was founded by Pete Seeger. Always fully of folk rock type acts. This year we caught Langhorn Slim, Beth Orton and Ani DiFranco. All three were wonderful

Lastly caught u2 last friday
u2's tour was about their new album and their youth. Bono told a bunch of stories of seeing violence as a boy. The setlist was heavy new album but they played Acrobat which was my favorite song of the night.

This past Friday I saw the Japanese band Tricot. They were amazing, combing kind of a Slint-ish post-rock groove with a '79 British post-punk aesthetic with short clipped guitar riffs, breakneck tempos and crazy time signature changes. Go see them if they're coming to your town.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
