Secret Machines and Built to Spill Wrap Up

Two concerts, two days. Here's how I did on the first one.

Secret Machines~ TLA Oct, 7th 2006

Light's On
Alone, Jealous and Stoned
Daddy's in the Doldrums
Pharaoh's Daughter
Sad and Lonely
Faded Lines
I Hate Pretending
It's a Bad Wind That Don't Blow Somebody Some Good
Lightning Blue Eyes
Road Lead's Where It's Led
First Wave Intact
1,000 Seconds
You Are Chains

Ones that I didn't post that were played included:
All At Once (It's Not Important)
Now Here Is Nowhere
What Used To Be French
Marconi's Radio

This show was amazingly good. A round stage in the center of the TLA was the set up. It was NUTS! Very shoegazer, very Floyd, very great.

Built To Spill~The Troc Oct, 8th 2007

Broken Chairs
Goin' Against Your Mind
I Would Hurt a Fly
Wherever You Go
Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss
Conventional Wisdom
Carry the Zero
Randy Described Eternity

In Your Mind
Time Trap

So i didn't pick em right. However, I'm not complaining! In fact, I was blown away by the fact they played three songs from Perfect From Now On and There Is Nothing Wrong With Love while only playing two songs from Keep It Like A Secret. Amazing show.

Can you explain the term "shoegazing?" I keep hearing that from new bands and I have no idea what that means.

BTW, are you going to any of the upcomign Beck shows? I know I asked peopel a while ago, but no one has said anything.

Shoegazer is a genre created by My Bloody Valentine. It's just a very sonic sound with a lot of noise comin at you in a melodic way. Bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Secret Machines and such have shoegazer feels to them. The only true shoegazer band is really My Bloody Valentine.

As for Beck, can't go.
