The Fine Line and I are taking a break. End of story.

It has finally happened. I was on a roll there for awhile, having a good relationship with the Fine Line, but it happened. I am now officially on a break with the Fine Line. Our relationship hit a rock last night and unless I really really really love the band I am going to keep my distance. It is really for the best, it saves a world of frustration.
So last night I went to see Peter Bjorn and John at the Fine Line (life was too busy for me to make it there in time for Chairlift - which was too bad because I love the song from the iPod commercial). Fine Line tickets for this show must have sold out because once again you could not move in the Fine Line. I think that the reason the Fine Line differs from First Ave so much is simply the way it is layed out. The Fine Line is a much narrower space making it impossible to see if you're stuck way in the back like Sara and I were last night. Ugh! It just wasn't any fun! Who enjoys standing in the back behind a pole that is blocking your way all the while people are shoving their way past you and hitting your arm every 5 seconds and spilling your beer! Not me. I left before the encore and I didn't even get to hear "young folks."

Don't get me wrong, I love supporting the Fine Line and the acts that play there by going there as much as I can. But I go to soo many concerts that I have to have some standards!

Next Up: The Sounds at the Varsity!

BJM Show at the Fine Line!

It has taken me a few days to recover from the Brian Jonestown Massacre show last week to say the least. The night ended in a cab ride I don't remember and one hell of a show! The original members (Anton, Matt, and Joel) were all touring this time around. I never thought that I would get to see Joel play the ol' tambourine! But I did! And I got to hear all of the great Matt Hollywood jams and all the Anton jams. I truly cannot tell you how wonderful of a show it was. I wish I could see it again this Thursday! Fine Line tickets for this event were not sold out, however, the Fine Line was packed. You could not even move on the balcony at all.

I have some great pictures, I'll post them when I am back at my computer!

Next up: Peter Bjorn and John on the 21st of April!!!!

Here are some pictures from the very hazy night!

I can't wait to see them again!!
