    Saw Malkmus and the Jicks last Wednesday...

    ...and, being my second show of the week (Wilco was Sunday night), I doubt I'll ever see two in one week again. I'm paying for it in spades.

    The band did a nice job, and we were basically right in front of the stage, or more importantly, right in front of Joanna Bolme, their bassist.

    I don't have the entire setlist, but fans will certainly recognize some of these tunes they played;

    All Over Gently
    Brain Gallop
    Baby Come On
    Long Hard Book
    No One Is
    Forever 28
    Share the Red
    Asking Price
    Stick Figures in Love

    Yes, I got some pictures too.

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    I have my iPod on shuffle this afternoon. In the past I put a whole bunch of RR comps on my iPod so that when I listen on shuffle suprising stuff comes up. It's really quite fun! Anyhow, I'm jamming along to this great song that I don't recognize this afternoon, really enjoying it. So I look at my iPod and it's a tune called Hopscotch Willy by Stephen Malkmus.

    Good stuff. I should probably check out some more.

    I've only spun Mirror Traffic once myself, but right out of the gate this one seems to be a return to his Pavement roots in that he's lightened up a bit. I saw the album title Mirror Traffic and thought to myself, "oh lord, he's made another Neil Young album" but am pleased with the lighter touch on this one. Not that it doesn't rock or is even all that polished, but not unlike recent Wilco, he's more focused on hooks and melody and less veering off into grinding meander. Its not as though he has less to say either, as Mirror Traffic is just as long as the last one (Real Emotional Trash) but with nearly twice as many tracks.
    Repost this on your wall if you love Jesus.

    Man, "Dynamic Calories" is such a good song. That's all I got.
