Mahjongg/ Dear Leader

Another concert last night... probably the last one until I come back for next year. It was pretty good. I enjoyed it anyway. no pictures, unfortunately. Mahjongg played some guitar-laden songs which were great, and then some animal collactive- like stuff, which was good, but not as much my style. it was fun though because i had been the animal collective concert, so i know what they were all about. They wer friendly though, and told us they wanted to talk to people afterwards. The crowd was TINY. and nao and i were probably the youngest people there. Oh well, it was still cool. Dear Leader is very political (if you hadn't gathered from the name). I guess the lead singer had a band before this one and he did shows with morissey, david bowie, coldplay, and at the drive-in. quite an impressive list. after one song he was all "oh, that was so emo... so emo it hurts" it was funny. then he was all "this is the song you hear on the radio. it's called raging red." it was rather amusing to hear him talk about his own music on the radio... and the expressions that went along with it. all in all, it was a good concert, and a relief to relax after all that school... i'm supposed to be studying for my finals now, but i'm not. reading period is annoying. oh well... so good/bad news: spoon cancelled their concert here, which sucks for those who wanted to go, but since i wouldn't have been here, it may rock for me because they're trying to make up the date in the fall and i might be around. that would be a great show. i'm still missing hot hot heat and the new pornographers though... sigh. so it goes.
