Season of shows

It's been a showtastic 2006 for me, with Jicks, Sleater Kinney, Camper Van Beethoven, Cracker, Feist, Broken Social Scene, Franz Ferdinand, Death Cab for Cutie, Metric and the Strokes on the showlist (okay that includes Dec 30 and 31 shows too.) The opening act scene has been less cool. Islands for example. They sounded like Arcade Fire, if the the Arcade Fire was more incoherent, less cool and inglorious. Then there was the Angels of Death Metal. I guess maybe it was ironic, but with at least five cheers of "Let's hear it for the ladies!" I don't think it was. It was like Kiss without the tongue in cheek or something.

Still fave show of recent years was the Interpol show at the 9:30. In fact I am rewatching the C'mere video to relive it.
