still alive

Posted on 10 September 2004 by Caryn Rose (2)

I seem to be the only person in Manhattan who did not attend the Franz Ferdinand show, or anything to do with Franz Ferdinand last night, or even be aware that Franz Ferdinand were on the island of Manhattan. Of course, I am leaving out the part where I could not possibly have cared less that they were in my zip code.

Like a friend said a few months ago, “I’m tired of this band and the record isn’t even out yet.”

I did, however, go see the exhibit by a very talented woman I know from, *cough* the Ryan Adams message board. I actually walked into Niagara and walked back out within half an hour; too much work to do last night.

But, for the sake of proving that this is not a case of “if it’s too loud, you’re too old,” here is my upcoming show calendar:

Sept. 10: Marah in Philly
Sept. 11: Jesse Malin @ Bowery Ballroom
Sept. 30: Ryan Adams @ Beacon Theater
Oct. 1: Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band, R.E.M., Bright Eyes: Wachovia Center, Philadelphia
Oct. 2: Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band, R.E.M., Bright Eyes: Gund Arena, Cleveland
Oct. 3: Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band, R.E.M., Bright Eyes: Cobo Arena, Detroit
Oct. 5: Pearl Jam, Death Cab For Cutie, Gob Roberts [Tim Robbins’ band]: The Fabulous Fox Theatre, St. Louis, MO
Oct. 12: The Libertines & Radio 4 @ Webster #[email protected]! Hall
Oct. 14: Twilight Singers @ Bowery Ballroom
Oct. 21: Al Green @ Apollo Theater

I could give you a longer list of everything I am missing because of the Vote For Change Concerts, but I’m trying not to think about it.

P.S.: Marah are at Sin-e tomorrow night. My epic treatise on why you should all love Marah is long overdue, but you should go.

    hey caryn.

    why no DC vote for change show for you?

    I think the regular shows will be better, but the last one should be pretty eventful, and may sports some one off collaborations. my money’s on some bruce/vedder action.

    considering i’ve waited about 10 years to see bruce and ed on the same stage, yeah, you’d think i’d be there. it’s a combination of things – ticket price (or at least the originally announced ticket price), moving it from miami like that, conflicts with four other shows i care about deeply (cmj is in nyc that week). i’m also not a fan of these kinds of megashows, and let’s add my deep abiding hatred for dave matthews…

    nah. i’ll pass.

    the tapers will be there.
