I'm moving accounts. If you'd like to add the new one, here it is:
I'm back at school, and I'm damned happy about it. I was supposed to have two classes today, but Anthropology was canceled and Classical Studies was only 20 minutes today. From the course outline, it looks like its going to be really good.
Sean and I went to go see The Wooden Sky on Saturday night. It was fuckin sweeeet. It was at this Wine & Grille place (Harlow's) in Uxbridge, and we were definitely the only people who were there specifically to see them. It was rather ritzy, and I felt somewhat under-dressed, but the food was amazing, and so was their performance. The rest of the people in their were upwards of 35 years of age, it was cool.
Their performance was great. Gavin Gardiner (lead) came out first and did a solo set, which was sweet as well. They played from their 2006 album (When Lost at Sea), and the songs were amazing. I had heard most of them before, but they sounded so much better live.
Hopefully I'll get to see them again soon!
Oh, and I also got to meet one of Sean's friends, Caitlin, and her boyfriend. They both seem really cool.
So, who has heard of Wintersleep?
Not too many of you, I assume. They're an indie rock band from Halifax. When I was given their CD about six months ago, I was in awe. I fell in love, no joke. I finally got to see them a few weeks ago, back in November. They're Cds astounded me. Shocked me into silence. But their live show? Holy metling! I was speechless. I couldn't say (or scream) anything during their 1 1/2 long set. All I could do was stand there - probably swaying a fair bit. Even now, thinking of it gives me shivers, they were that good.
They played with Wooden Stars and the Sourkeys. The Sourkeys were pretty good too. It was their last show. I had never been impressed by their music before, but I had never seen them live before. I think it was really their energy that I was drawn to. I was relatively unimpressed by Wooden Stars. I had their Cd, 'People are Different' and I quite like it, but their performance was lacking. The vocals were quiet, and more spoken than sung. It was hard to recognize the songs.
Nevertheless, the show was amazing, and I still owe someone money for my ticket. I should get on that.
