La Bodega

Tales and pictures from our little corner of the world.


A couple couple concerts of note...

So the last couple weeks consisted two 2 concerts that ended up being fairly insignificat. The first being And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead. The show was moved from The Quest to Station 4, which at first excited me, until I took one step into Station 4. It was essentially an empty space bought out by the adjacent bar for live music purposes. All in all, the sound was terrible, the underaged crowd did not seem to get into the show at all, the beams running from the floor to the ceiling in the middle of the room obstructed the view, and the band put on a fairly ininspiring performance. Only one new song was performed, which is odd considering they have a new CD coming out on Tuesday. Highlights of the evening were pretty much limited to Aged Dolls (my favorite TOD song), Will You Smile Again for Me, and Totally Natural. Their next CD better be good, or I am thinking I am finished with TOD live.

Last night, a bunch of us went to see mainly The French Kicks. Unfortunately they were the openers for class of 2006 OK Go. The show was at First Ave, and after seeing the French Kicks perform at Triple Rock, I wasn't expecting too much. As expected, the band is just not lively enough to handle a show at First Ave. While the songs were enjoyable, they lacked the excitement and danceability of the last show. OK Go then took the stage to play their brand of pop indie rock, including the hit "Here It Goes" (treadmills not included). Their performace was entertaining if nothing else and they ripped through pretty much all of their studio released song, including a surprise cover of ELO's "Don't Bring Me Down."
