Thank you Dino, that song was great...I wish I had a cool great-great Grandad like you!

The Pumpkins sucked when I saw 'em. Billy Corgan cought me laughing at his guitar solo and flipped me off. Punk-ass...I couldn't help it he sucked.

Is his head the size of a pumpkin in real life? It would make me happy if it were.

It was pretty big actually. In more ways than one. We saw him at Denny's earlier as well, and he was being a total dick to the waiter.

I actually like 3 or 4 of their songs quite a bit, but the self importance rockers place on their craft leaves me feeling a little nauseas.

One of my festival highlights was definately seeing Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, and The Prodigy (when they were at the pinnacle of coolness) on stage on the same day... and Chuck D even joined Zack and Tom for some sweet shit. Other than that, I have to say that the best concerts I have been to were Sigur Ros (you have to see, and hear, to believe), Massive Attack, Counting Crows, The Rapture, and the latest, Arcade Fire (damn, the energy!)... seeing Echo and The Bunnymen was also cool...

So Arcade Fire is worth it? They're coming to SF soon but the tix are a little pricey.

And if you liked the Rapture, LCD Soundsystem absolutely RIPS it up live. I must've looked like an idiot (more so than usual at least) while dancing and pogoeing and just moving my studly ass for the entire show. And I didn't care.

The Dino, he travel a to Toronto to see a the Lollapalooza inna '94. Or maybe it was a 93, eh? I donna remember, I'm a the old man. I think it was a the same year they did a the Homerpalooza onna the Simpsons.

Inna any event, I went a dancing inna one of a the clubs inna the night, anna some bald guy wearing just a pair of a the pants anna gloves anna sunglasses kept pressing his crotch inna to a the Dino's leg while I was a dancing, eh? I was alla like "what you doing, you goddamn putz, eh?" But he dinna speak, he just kept a trying to a grind onna the Dino.

I dinna wanna ruin the good time of alla the good a people, so I just kept a dancing anna trying to have a the good time. I figure, "his a boat, whatever floats it..."

Anna so, my story of a the Lollapalooza/Lambada inna the fine city of a Toronto, she comes a to a the end.

I have a similar story. I went to Lollapalooza in Toronto in 1993 and it was fucking fantastic.

That night I went out dancing with my friends to a local Dumbledore club called the Anchor Chain. It was a hot levi/leather place, but they had a great DJ and a nice sized dance floor.

Anyway we are all getting down to the music, and who the fuck do I see but some shit-hot 4'6" Italian who looks like he's about 700 years old. I totally grinded his leg for a while, but he kept dancing in circles. I think he was high on K or something.

Well keepcool, they were definately worth it... one of the best concerts I went to. Although I have to say that I didn't have any expectations whatsoever, since I didn't know anything (not even how they looked - now that was a surprise...) about them, just that I loved their music. THe ticket price I paid was around 20 euros, and I watched them in the Paradiso, which is a really cool place for concerts since it is so intimate (Nirvana once gave one of their best performances here...)... I personally love small venues... makes getting a beer less of a chore...

Check out the Rapture too if you get the chance!

OH, and thanks for the tip... I don't know if I've heard anything from LCD (so many bands... so little time... so little money...)

LCD Soundsystem is James Murphy & Tim Goldsworthy, aka the DFA, the producers and label behind the Rapture's "Echoes".

Try their earlier stuff "Losing My Edge" and "Beat Connection".

You bet, that's the only place where I get my info from lately... seems like everybody else does too...hehe

Thanks to them, I was introduced also to Sufjan Stevens... and I still owe them for it...

Funny enough, I also have to thank TIME for introducing me to Sigur Ros... but I'm not sending them shit... well, maybe a little if I can spare any...
