I was messaging LL last night because I kind of blew this off, but there are still tickets. Not feeling like trekking over solo today, though

i don't feel like paying $75 for anything right now
i'd gladly work for my free ticket but that opp didn't present itself either and my efforts to ask around fell flat
c'est la vie

going to make it back to pitchfork fest some day, if for no other reason than to redeem the horrible time I had the last time... which was probably a decade ago. wow

like they could have made it much more comfortable/navigable with like 10-15% less people

I didn't even think about trying to go because I was almost certain I was scheduled for work, and then I turned out not to be

Feelies were good. Dawn Richard was marvelous.

Gonna be there again for a span today, I'll try to say hey. Alfred, you should jog over to that other section and get yourself one of Lost Lake's cocktails, if only to get a plastic cup drink with a full-on pineapple slice garnish, two pretty flowers and a giant plastic palm frond stirrer. Paul McGee is Chicago's resident cocktail icon, tiki division.

I want to like Mitski but the more I listen the more it all sounds just like boring 90's alt rock.

Josh, let's meet!

LCD were boring, but it's my fault -- I don't care for this sound anymore.

the Mitski album is incredible but boy does her stuff not translate live, imo. still absolutely adore here, though.

alpine static, Sunday, 16 July 2017 15:52 (nine months ago) Permalink

yeah from all the footage i've seen her live performances are not very convincing unfortunately, she probably needs at least someone on keyboards/second guitar to do the songs justice
