Best twelve dollars I ever spent

I went to see Shellac last night. I have wanted to see these guys for a decade, but due to highly irregular and little promoted tours, I haven't had the chance. Although Steve Albini is the best known of the members, this is very much an equal partnership. So much so, that the drum set was moved up to be parallel to the bass and guitar. While Albini does most of the singing, bassist Bob Weston does more of the banter, and these guys banter more than most, with a mid-show Q&A session a regular feature. Also no encores, which I quite like.

Here is a good live segment from Ireland. He was wearing the same T-shirt last night. Lucky tour T-shirt?
