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:

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:
- Electric Six / The Ponys 5/4/07 @ First Avenue
- Arctic Monkeys / Be You Own Pet 5/7/07 @ First Avenue
- Mando Diao 5/8/07 @ 400 Bar
- !!! 5/9/07 @ Fine Line Music Cafe
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.
