grinderman



I'm really excited about the new Grinderman album. This may not be everyone's cup of tea, or, if it is your cup of tea you're my new best friend. And I love this hilarious video for Heathen Child - laser beam eyes and stonehenge - score! (Warning, some nudity and "questionable" content). It's like some combination of MST3K and even more sarcasm. And, on top of that I just bought my tickets for their show at the House of Blues in the Fenway - I was surprised they weren't more expensive than $25, as most shows these days are so overpriced. I usually don't go to concerts anymore because I don't like crowds but have made two exceptions for that : if either A. Yann Tiersen plays around here or B. Some form of Nick Cave plays around here. This falls into category B and I can't tell you how pumped I am for this. Yes, I said pumped and boy do I mean it! And since we are technically on the topic, I'll share some of my favorites. Yes, major dorking alert...thanks for indulging me...

nick cave, be still my heart. the best part about going to stel's is that they're always playing nick cave. i think i may have to buy tickets for this concert. i haven't gone to a concert in almost 5 years. thanks for mentioning this, i rarely keep up with concert news.

Oh man, I didn't think much anyone else had even heard of Grinderman let alone genuinely liked them. I just love them! I'm so stoked you're getting to see them, I can't imagine many shows that would be better for sheer power and emotion. Not to mention ROCK & ROLL. (Feel like an idiot but sometimes things just need to be in all caps, you know?) Anyway, I hope you have an excellent time! I hope you do a blog post to let everyone know how it goes!

Erica, yes, be still my heart exactly. That's so funny because I also noticed they are always playing them in stel's when I go in too (which isn't that often). I think I actually ended up talking to one of the guys for a little bit when dig lazarus dig came out and he was going on about how good it was. i think my last concert was two years ago but this one is definitely worth going to! hope to see you there :)

Elise - So glad you like them too! I agree, most people don't know who they are, and they're definitely an acquired taste. And yes, sometimes certain things do warrant the use of ALL CAPS! hehe ;p
