Godspeed You! Black Emperor touring again
I rely on you assholes (I'm looking at you, meatdrink; TGR's resident purveyor of high quality live music, and no I don't care if you do or do not like Godspeed) to keep me updated on this type of thing so that I don't have to shell out muchos $$$$$ to buy tickets after they've sold out. I kid, I kid.
Anyway, I'm going to the Portland show on Feb. 18th. Haven't been this stoked for a concert since Radiohead came to Seattle a couple years ago.
Anyone else?I thought their offices would be strewn with bunny-fucking and condom dispensers, a veritable enchanted forest of cock shafts and twat mist. - JoeStrummer

yeah, I didn't hear about the shows until after they sold out (only went on sale a couple weeks or so ago). Just shelled out $60 on ebay for my ticket though. Annoying, but worth it.I thought their offices would be strewn with bunny-fucking and condom dispensers, a veritable enchanted forest of cock shafts and twat mist. - JoeStrummer

GY!BE are coming in concert and from what I've read they have quite a following but from what I have gleaned off of Youtube they bore me to death. I don't know if I could stay awake for a whole show.
Someone explain this band to me. Point me to something listenable by them. Am I going to miss something great if I skip this show?

I was underwhelmed by them live, too, back in the day. Frankly, I'd rather listen to the CD of f#a# on a good stereo than watch them play it while standing in a giant crowd of hipsters in the dark.

Yeah, I saw them live a few years back and it wasn't really that memorable. Prefer to listen on headphones. But does touring = new album? Albini sort of screwed up the production on the last album. Just didn't think his stripped down production style meshed with tons of instruments.
