First Night

I'm about to head into town to see some shows, but I did want to make a quick post before I go. A few of you have emailed to say that you're getting to town tonight, so hopefully I'll run into you later. I spent a long time today going through the listings, listening to MP3s of the bands, etc., and I've got what I think is a pretty stellar itinerary lined up. Late tonight or first thing tomorrow I'll tell you all about the bands I saw. A bunch of you have asked me (in comments and in email) about who I think we should be paying attention to, besides Peter Bjorn and John, and I'll give you reports after I see the bands.

One club I won't be going to tonight, obviously, is the one where Peter Bjorn and John are headlining (I won't name the club, so I don't get slammed with another round of you're-promoting-the-band nonsense, which I hope I dispensed with here). This turns out to be sort of a shame, because a couple of the acts before them sound pretty cool. But hopefully I will get to see them at shows later on in the weekend.

It's not due to this blog of course, but "Writer's Block" just entered the Billboard 200. LMAO!

Peter Bjorn and John thanked you from the stage at the Red Eyed Fly yesterday for helping to drum up publicity for them, which is exactly what you are doing, whether intentional or not. Their set was great, by the way.

My friend sent me a link to their music, and independent of pitchfork, blogs, whatever, I decided I like them. I really played into their hands didn't I?

Oh, and if you don't like Austin, you'll hate the rest of Texas, because this is the best we got.

I appreciate your passion for hate though, you're like the jilted, revenge-bent astronaut of indie music fans. Drive on!

To be a adroit benign being is to procure a make of openness to the far-out, an ability to guardianship uncertain things beyond your own control, that can govern you to be shattered in uncommonly extreme circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly important relating to the condition of the honest passion: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a prize, something somewhat dainty, but whose mere precise handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
