pinback ache

tonight i went to see pinback/canyon/her space holiday. it has been a long time since i went to a show by myself and stayed [for the most part] by myself for the duration of the show. usually i meet up with someone and hang out with them for the rest of the show. tonight i glued myself to the stage for the whole show. her space holiday rocked the house. oh my god. their lightshow was amazing! i have 'home is where you hang yourself' and i like it okay, but live you get to see them in action. her space holiday is comprised of two lovely indie kids - a white boy and an asian girl. yea, they're pretty darn darling.

canyon were actually okay. the last few times i saw them i was bored to tears. the sound at the black cat was really good tonight. so yea, i made it through canyon's set without being too bored. when pinback took the stage, they started off slowly and worked up to the 'hits'. they put on a *superb* show. even with all the little technical glitches [tuning, broken bass string], they all kept their cool. i think that 'penelope' is their best live number. the keyboardist gets up from his seat and stands up and plays as if he were mechnical, keeping his eyes straight ahead and focused on some unknown target. it is a sight to see. they played 'a song for wesley' towards the end, which is an awesome heavy vegetable song! it was great! i smiled for most of the show. it felt really good; not without having to rely on friends being there to hang out and make jokes with. i had a good time on my own. so i'm even closer to completing my 10 step program. and now i am edging closer to my bed. mm.

i spent way too much money tonight. i bought the her space holiday tee shirt because on the back it said this:
