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 #$@! 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.
