the only earth?

happy cycling

Every so often, it's kind of great being shoved around by a teeming pit full of moshing teenagers and walking home with a sore lip soaked in some strange combination of their sweat, yours, and light misty rain. That is, the Thermals were beyond great tonight.

I just realized that it's been almost a year since I saw Arctic Monkeys in Amsterdam, with nearly identical results.


The Shins were pretty good on Tuesday night, too. Just understandably more sedate.


AND! you can listen to the whole Arcade Fire show from 17 February in New York. [npr] It is even downloadable in mp3 format without any trickery.
