I'll be Back

No idea if anyone other than Ian (what up!) reads this anymore, but I've been busy with studying and the such for midterms, and will be for the next week or so, so the posting level will stay low. However, while I'm writing I might as well get into a few things.
Saw Broken Social Scene last week at Calvin College. Third time I've seen them and maybe the most fun I've had yet. Actually snagged some good spots up near the fron even though we got there after what seemed to be hundreds upon hundreds of kids. I don't know if they were not all into BSS or whatever, but when people stood up and "rushed" the stage, a lot of people did not move, and stayed pretty complacent. They were more energetic than they seemed at Lollapalooza this Summer, but played less than when I saw them in Ann Arbor. They stuck to mostly old standybys with the exception of a couple Brandon Canning songs. Also played "Anthems of a Seventeen Year Old Girl" which is the sencond time I'd seen it. Less good this time with the Land of Talk singer singing it for maybe the first time in concert. All in all, good time. Couple things coming up that I hope to write about: Universal Mind Control (when is that coming out?), 808's and Heartbreak (CuDi's on two songs!), Drive-by-Truckers and Hold Steady concert in Chicago (first concert that isn't Lolla out of Michigan), and I am going to see Bob Dylan finally on November 8 here in the Zoo. Hopefuly he isn't so old that his lyrics become completely unrecognizable, but we'll see.

i was suprised no one said anything about cudi at the listening session. i guess his voice may not be immediately recognizable, but i was especially surprised elitaste didnt mention in though. oh and your posts showed up, my prof asked if it was me.
