Look who I found hangin' out... part trois / !!! (Chk Chk Chk) / PB&J / Billy Joel

I think I have a theme going this week:

Yeah, that's me hangin' with vocalists Shannon Funchess and Nic Offer from !!! (Chk Chk Chk). These guys were amazing last night @ Fine Line Music Cafe. Imagine 8 band-members putting on a non-stop dance party. Insane. Don't believe me? Stereogum would agree...

OK, a couple more quickie pics from the show:

Mr. DJ Soviet Panda. He opened the show since Flosstradamus canceled. He was actually pretty good:


!!! Setlist (paper on the right):

I'm worn out. Enough live music for a little while... Seriously, it's not easy holding down a day job and doing this full time. However, after work today, I'll try to summarize the following gigs I've seen in the past few days:
We're talking 1000 pictures and 20 videos + that I took... so wish me luck ;)

In other news:

> Brody went to Peter, Bjorn & John last night. Look for his review and pictures here. He's also got a nice Mando Diao recap.

> Some dear friends of mine went to Billy Joel last night. I'm not a huge fan, but I like some of his tunes. Strib review. Pioneer Press Review. Setlist.

Update: Greg over at Perfect Porridge has some great photos and a review as well...

Here's my favorite tune by Billy.

Billy Joel - Honesty (1978):

mp3: Billy Joel - Honesty (YSI)

Billy Joel and !!! in the same post. Classic. I think I need to go to bed. Have a great Thursday!!!

P.S. To show I'm still "cool" (ha!), this is pretty new.

Steve! Here's our review of BJ last night, too: I'm not a huge fan, but he's one hell of a performer. -G.
