My Bloody Valentine US Tour!
oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god! Well, my day is shot. The recently-reformed My Bloody Valentine just announced a bunch of US tour dates. I won't be able to concentrate on anything else.
09-22 New York, NY - Roseland
09-23 New York, NY - Roseland
09-25 Toronto, Ontario - Ricoh
09-27 Chicago, IL - Aragon Ballroom
09-30 San Francisco, CA - The Concourse
10-01 Los Angeles, CA - Santa Monica Civic
10-02 Los Angeles, CA - Santa Monica Civic
I'll be at Roseland. Ticketbastard's only showing the 23rd right now, so it'll probably be that one. (Update: got my tix for the 22nd!)
For anyone who's not familiar, MBV is the original "shoegazer" band (the term was coined for them), but they're really more of an art-rock noise thing, although their last album, 1992's Loveless, is both pretty melodic and an outright classic. They never really broke up, either - they just haven't bothered doing anything together in about the last 16 years. I previously posted a couple of their videos in my Jazzmaster post - but here's another one. Its subject matter makes it pretty apt.
To Here Knows When:
"Come back again... to here knows when..."
This band changed my entire perception of music. Really, they changed my life.
