I was planning on showing up just to see AMT. IS Subarachnoid Space worth showing up early for?

Show in Chicago with Wolf Eyes was MAGNIFICENT!
I'm not a SubArachnoic Space fan, I missed their opening set.
Rest of the show was badass. Pony-tailed hippies were non-plussed by Wolf Eyes, most walked to the back of the club in laughter. Their set sounded great, but they aren't always the most visually stimulating group. I'd rather be on the floor with them, two feet in front of the PA speakers, rather than watch them on a stage in a crowd.
Acid Mothers provieded inifinite riffs of righteousness, absolutely glorious.

I'm not expecting anyone to even be at tonight's show. LA BLOWZ. I'd figure that last night Spaceland show was also heavily underattended thanks to the Lakers game (if you can call it that) and the Kerry benefit, also, hipsters = sux0rs.

Caught Acid Mothers in Detroit about a week and a half ago. GO SEE THEM! I wasn't overly familiar with them (knew the legend more than the music) and it was well worth it. Their obligatory "pop song" (what the vocalist called it) sounded like the Ruins! Wolf Eyes were good, too, and I thought Subarachnoid Space were decent.

but dude, they are awesome live, far better than on record. And they rocked when I saw them again late last year, just when I was thinking that maybe I had seen them sufficiently often.

i'm really interested in American roots music and Country music in these years

yikes. be very afraid.

Kawabata's blog is a nice surprise. he comes across as very down to earth, very cool, just another music-loving dork who can't keep his enthusiasm bottled up, be it for Jeff Beck or for some Frog-rock obscurity. dispels some of the strong misgivings i've had about AMT's relentlessly collector-baiting promotional tactics. K clearly just loves music and gets off on sharing that love. no crime in that. and, huh, he can expresses himself pretty well in English. so what's with this "sorry - no speak Engrish" front AMT put up whenever they come to town?

Yeah, they don't get to have any privacy, they are rock stars, after all.
I know that they would never stonewall any pretty American girls that may want to chat after a set. Who needs another psych geek talking at you?

Really have to say -- having seen them various times over the years, last night's show was easily one of their best. Last couple of times had almost been 'standard' AMT, but while it was still very much them in full effect there were more new/random song choices and experiments, and even "Pink Lady Lemonade" got a bit of a redo via two different versions, the first starting off on acoustic guitar.

Also, Kinski killed as per usual so show up early if you have the chance to see them too here on the West Coast. Sonic Suicide Squad were all right enough, noise/free jazz roar but I think Zu works in the same field with better focus.

hmmm i should probably decide either to do this or not soon.

i would bring yer own earplugs to the entry, they normally have them but sometimes they forget/dont bother to check.

the fact that it's on a friday makes it sort of a no-brainer for me. it's basically the one day of the week i can go out guilt-free

i mean legal capacity for the entry is 250 (which is horrorshow style packed btw). am i missing something here about how few people would want to see AMT? last time they played at the triple rock which is way way bigger, maybe that show didnt do well?

i would totally go see them again if i didn't have class. last year's show was great--i don't have any of their records (my gf does) and we go in and they've already started, these seriously decrepit-looking dudes playing super-slow space rock, and i'm like is this going to be kind of lol but mostly sad.....of course after 15 minutes it was obvious that i was wrong and they totally kicked ass.

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 14 April 2009 20:22 (ten years ago) Permalink

Yep. I saw the Vancouver show last week. First time seeing them and it was great. I guess it was a compact line-up. Just four of them - I think they sometimes have more. But this was space rock as she is meant to be played. Kinski played too and that was equally fantastic. They are now hard, tight and fast and not so much in the Mogwai mould from when I last saw them a few years back. I have not felt this stimulated at a live show for ages. You'll not be disappointed I think.

everything, Tuesday, 14 April 2009 20:32 (ten years ago) Permalink

I just read upthread a bit. Earplugs not required unless your the type that always uses them. It wasn't oppresively loud. The sound was perfect.

everything, Tuesday, 14 April 2009 20:36 (ten years ago) Permalink

my experience at previous shows has been, they start, and i'm kind of "yeah, this is ok," and things go on a little and at some point i lose track of it all and i sort of come to in the middle of this howling cloud of rock and i can't remember quite how i got there. (and that's without being on anything stronger than alcohol.)

considering how little i listen to AMT, it's funny to me that they're the band i've seen play the most in the last decade. but their live shows are so great, i'll never pass them up. definitely going to the knoxville show in a few weeks.

Lineup appeared to be as listed above, though replace "acoustic guitar" with "bitchin' clarinet". I kinda expected them to play one 1-hr song but they played a set of songs kinda! With verses sometimes! Mokoto rubbing his guitar on his ass, holding his guitar over his head by the trem arm, swinging it wildly by the neck. Guitar hanging from the ceiling. Bass dude sings a lot. He makes chromatic shredding groove somehow!? Really liked him. Great, great show.
