The Life and Times of a Rock-n-Roll Shut-in
_Sufjan Stevens at SouthPaw November 14th 2004._
I’ve decided, as one does from time to time, to go to more shows. I have been woefully inadequate on going to live shows for the last few months and I am thoroughly sick of it. I have absolutely no excuse for not going other than my own laziness and quite frankly that just doesn’t cut it. Unfortunately, I’m afraid that Funtime Diane just isn’t into seeing all the rocking bands that I would love to see… I guess I will have to suck it up and just go by myself if necessary… or go with pals… or maybe even listeners of _Tracks Up the Tree._ although that would totally depend if they are stalkers or not… What do you guys think? Anybody in the New York City interested in seeing a show with your buddy Funtime Ben? Or is that just desperate?
The next show I was planning to go see would be on Saturday March 26 at “Bowery Ballroom”:http://www.boweryballroom.com/
* “Crooked Fingers”:http://www.crookedfingers.com/ you’ve got to hear these guys – excellent music.
* “The Dears”:http://www.thedears.org/ sound like a soulful Moressy need I say more?
* “Liz Durrett”:http://www.lizdurrett.com/ a little surprise. She’s an awesome female vocalist I will definitely play a few tracks of hers on TUTT.
Looks like a cool show.
So thats the new plan. No more excuses. I really have to get out more often and see the bands I want to, before I grow old and loose my teeth. Pathetic as it might be…
*Anybody want to go with me?*
(Other Shows I would love to see Bloc Party, M.Ward, Wolf Parade, Robbers on High Street, The Decemberists.)
p(update). I will definitely be attending this gig with Funtime Diane, so if you want to join up – drop me a comment and we can have a few beers before the show. Anyone coming to the show will also receive a limited edition _Tracks Up the Tree_ 1.5 inch button… but you’ll have to rsvp your buttons, cuz each one is custom.
