I just found this band, and I am in love.
If you like Falloutboy or Panic! At the Disco, listen to them
And help out a great indie band.
Plus they're beautiful.

Iron & Wine w/ Calexico October 29, 2005 [01 Nov 2005|03:45pm]

[ mood | happy ]

I went home for the weekend. I was lucky, the weekend I decided to go home, Iron & Wine was playing in my hometown. I went to go see him. It was an amazing show. Calexico opened and later joined Sam Beam on stage to play some songs from In the Reins. Sam Beam is one of those artists that sound nothing like the album when playing live. This can most of the time be a good thing. I love artists like that. It shows authenticity in the music they play as well as a spontaneity that keeps the listener on their toes. When he played "Teeth in the Grass," one of my favorites by him, he was joined by a full band behind him and played it so amazingly that anyone who's only heard the album version has not truley heard this song.
That spontaneity, however, can sometimes turn out a little less than great. When he played "Woman King," not only one of my favorites, but my #1 favorite by him, it didn't compare to the album version I was used to. I was disappointed by his performance of this one song as it didn't seem to do the song justice.
Overall, however, it was certainly an amazing show. I had never heard Calexico before that night, save for a few songs they did with Iron & Wine on In the Reins. They were great. For those who don't know, Calexico is a band from, if I remember correctly, Tucson, Arizona. You can really hear this in their music. I've never been to Arizona, myself, but my image of the state is well-soundtracked by what I heard by Calexico. They have a latin/western quality to their sound that totally rocked my face out. The trumpets sound amazing.
It was strange coming back to a small town venue. This wasn't in Dallas, but in Fort Worth. I was never used to going to shows in Fort Worth. I'd always drive the half hour to Deep Elm for the small town shows. Fort Worth, I had forgotten, was a much more boring town. Although I had fun at the concert, the crowd was insanely chill. Sam Beam actually made a comment on how "well-behaved" the crowd was. Not much moving around or shouting at all. Granted it was an Iron & Wine show, but one would expect a little more reaction from the audience.
I didn't know Calexico well enough to catch a setlist, but I got down Iron & Wine's. He didn't play a few songs that I had wanted to hear, but he might have actually played them as an encore. I didn't wait for an encore, because it was already one in the morning and I was still on New York time, not to mention that I had plans after the show that I wanted to get to. Also, they had played a pretty full set and I doubted there would actually be an encore. Here's the setlist:

Iron & Wine
Sunset Soon Forgotten
Muddy Hymnal
Free Until They Cut Me Down
Evening on the Ground (Lilith's Song)
The Sea and the Rhythm
Southern Anthem
Naked as We Came
Woman King
The Trapeze Swinger
On Your Wings
Freedom Hangs Like Heaven
Teeth in the Grass

Iron & Wine with Calexico
He Lays in the Reins
Red Dust
lyrics: "Cry behind the door"*
A History of Lovers
Prison on Route 41
Burn that Broken Bed

*This was a song I didn't recognize. I caught some of the lyrics and I thought I could look it up later online, but I looked it up and neither Iron & Wine nor Calexico had any songs with these lyrics. The only song I could find by anyone with these lyrics was "All Tomorrow's Parties," which they could have done a cover of. By the time I found these lyrics, however, I had forgotten the song I heard that night and I'm not sure if this was it.

As a sidenote, I will be leaving this community. Not only am I the only one holding the community, since it's not very active, but as of tomorrow, I will no longer fall under the category of an "indie teen." I turn twenty, tomorrow (Happy Birthday to me). So if anyone actually read the few posts I made on this community, there will be no more to come. Enjoy yourselves and hunt down and listen to the best music out there. Because without good music... well... fuck that! There had better always be good music!


September 19 @ Irving Plaza [20 Sep 2005|11:26pm]

[ mood | complacent ]

"The Notwist as Themselves," he said.
She heard him and corrected him from a distance. She didn't say it directly to him, but to her friend standing next to her. "The Notwist and Themselves, not as. Dumbasses."


Monday night I saw 13 and God at Irving Plaza. I gotta say, it was awesome. It's the third show I've been to since I got to New York. The first one was Ted Leo+Pharmacists at the Seaport Music Festival. It was outdoors and there was a huge crowd. Coldplay was at Madison Square Garden, which was huge and sold out. Irving Plaza is a nice little club that reminded me of home. I was right next to the stage and the band was right in front of me.

The opening band, Boy In Static, was really awesome. When these guys come to your town, you definitely need to see them. Thirteen & God put on a really good show and played 'covers' of their individual bands as an encore. I was hoping they'd play a few more songs by the Notwist, but they only played "Pick Up the Phone." It was totally worth it, because I love the Notwist.

Did anyone go to the Bright Eyes/The Faint concert? If you did, what did you think of Airborn Audio?

Thought I'd stop in and check this community out. I like a lot of indie music. I'm big into Bright Eyes, lately. I like a lot of other bands, too. I don't know how active this community is, but I'll try and spread the word to some other people.

I just joined, because i was really tired of looking for a indie community to join, but always finding rating communities. So I'm glad you're not one. This is actually my icon journal, so i'm going to join with my other journal too (___hellowinter). Just to be acquainted with you all:
My name is Rebecca. I am 15, close to 16 since my birthday is coming up next month. I live in Nashville, Tennessee, which is probably why I like alt-country influenced indie rock more. My oldest sister is who got me into indie rock, who has switched to shoegaze and electronica more. I also enjoy this type of music. Some of my current favorite bands are: Kings of Convenience, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Old 97's/Rhett Miller, and Bright Eyes (though i haven't gotten any of their new stuff. i've been listening to there's no beginning to this story alot.)

More non-music things about me: I go to a Literature Magnet school, which has nothing to do with Literature, sadly. I spend a lot of time on the computer (more than i should). I usually make icons and do "school work" which consists of looking up random facts which i continue to tell my family about.

Which reminds me, I was going to look up all the racial slurs.

So, hi everyone.

because i like to waste time, i put all of my albums in a list here: http://rateyourmusic.com/~llama1600

these are just the full albums, there is a list of artists i have random tracks to, i have more than is on there but it's not uploaded on my comuter and therefore i do not listen to it which must mean i don;t like it very much.
so if anyone wants any of these albums and/or songs from one of these albums, i can send them to you or put up a link here.

so request something, or laugh at the fact i only have 95 full albums on my computer, or whatever

i realize that this exact same thing was posted in neutralsexhotel, a community 2 of the three members here are in (and why hasn't the third member jumped on the bandwagon?), but whatever, no one posts anything here anyways, this community needs to be more active
