My profile of Kasabian went online this morning (read it here). I had about five minutes to talk to the band’s guitarist/keyboardist/songwriter Serge Pizzorno, and considering his answers to my questions, that’s all I really needed. It was like interviewing David St. Hubbins of Spinal Tap. Anyway, it’s my sincere belief that Kasabian actually could be the next big thing out of bonny ol’ England. Their single, “Club Foot,” is a mammoth hit over there, and they’re selling out arenas throughout Europe. It could be awhile, however, until that reach that status in the colonies… if ever.
Tonight is Mary Timony at Sokol Underground with Medications (the other touring band that includes her drummer/collaborator Devin Ocampo) and Omaha’s own Bombardment Society. Can Timony pull it off with just her and Ocampo performing as a two-piece? We’ll see. I asked he why she didn’t have a full band and pointed out that two-piece outfits are becoming more common these days (The White Stripes and Black Keys come to mind). She said she hadn’t thought about it, but yeah, I guess there are a lot of two-piece bands. Why is that? “I think it’s just economical. It makes going on tour easy. Actually, I don’t know why it is.” The show is $8 and starts at 9.
