No Age at the Silent Movie Theater, 8/30/09

French film soundtracked by
Backwards English and drum zeal
At plot climaxes

Deerhunter with Pocahaunted and David Scott Stone at the Detroit Bar, 8/27/09

David Scott Smith

I think I get what
He was going for, and yet
Still not invested.


Someone in this band
Studied their reggae, studied
It pretty damn well.


Like water, like a
River of pink, bathing me
In texture, in light.

Night Control at the Smell, 8/23/09

All of the lines blurred 
On their record firmed up and
Really striking live.

The Flaming Lips at the Del Mar Racetrack, 8/15/09

Of both their position and
Their adoring fans :)

Shine Brothers at the Silverlake Lounge, 8/10/09

Steamrolled zydeco
Calibrated for July
Yet rocking August!

The Magnolia Electric Co with The Donkeys at the Echo, 7/28/09

The Donkeys

Classic rock-inspired
Showmen instrumentally,
Yet sweetly bashful

The Magnolia Electric Co

Actual tears streamed
During melodic memoirs
And ripped our hearts out.

Theater Fire at Vacation Records, 7/17/09

The armor washboard
Stole the show, punctuating
Their percussive point.

Spires at the Echo Curio, 7/16/09

Every song was good
And I knew not a one. So 
Exciting to find!

Tortoise at Amoeba Hollywood, 7/9/09

Angular rhythms
Circling most pleasantly 
Not challenging, though.
