Nothing last weekend; The Shins tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 12:30 pm May 9, 2005

I spent this past weekend healing and getting stronger, away from the shows, prepping for the week to come. Actually, that said, I probably won’t be at tonight’s Shins concert at Sokol Auditorium, which is sold out, by the way. I like The Shins on CD; I’m not sure I’d dig their live set judging by how they’ve sounded on various late-night television chat shows. Still, it could be a riot, especially with New Zealand’s The Brunettes opening. Their latest, the jangly organ-and-guitar driven Mars Loves Venus, is pure glowing-rainbow kitsch and probably a perfect fit for The Shins goodhearted retro clatter. Looking at the One Percent website, there appears to be only two bands on the bill (sadly, no local opener) which means, along with an 8 p.m. starting time, it could be an early night. If I can get in, I might go after all.
