I know, Surf. I was going for the dad-of-the-year award.
Good thing is the next few gigs should wipe away all doubt again.
There's a bit of unknown singer-songwriter, a couple of Dweezil Zappa gigs, two Motorpsycho gigs. Perhaps some more as well.

Looking forward to getting rid of the memories of pop-teenage hysteria. It was properly lousy. My daughter had a blast, though, which means so did I.

As far as Eurovision goes; my favorite was Romania. Norway came 10th, NL 11th. Put that in your pipe and smoke it! :D

Another take on obscure Finnish bands with a Waitsian touch ... here's Faarao Pirttikangas. He doesn't bring his 7-piece orchestra from up North down to Helsinki too often, unfortunately. This Saturday we got lucky, so it was well worth introducing Faarao's gang to my family as well, brought missus & both daughters along.

Even though the lyrics are in Finnish - with rural, primitive, mythologic themes - listener can get a grip of them from the music itself I suppose. More or less a bluesy kind of stuff, but with instruments like these it gets a many flavoured treatment - which probably gives it that Waitsian feeling?

Lovely fella too is Faarao. I don't do selfies with artists that much, instead a chat will do to show my appreciation. Got me his new album to mark a very nice rootsy night out with the family, sure like to buy vinyls and stuff direct from bands and artists, dropping the middleman just makes perfect sense.

Here's a Faarao clip, hope you like it:

Can't believe what I am reading this morning.

Kids. Young girls.

I hope your daughters aren't too upset, Rune. Must be very traumatizing to have an "it could have been me" moment like this at such an early age. :( (Traumatizing to you too, I'm sure...)

This attack and the Bataclan affected me so much, I think because I feel like we're all one big live-music-loving community and it's "my people" they're hurting. It doesn't feel random like other attacks do.

Yes, I thought of Rune and his girls too this morning.

The fact that it's a music venue makes it feel closer to home, yes. Also the fact that it's Manchester, where I've been so many times, and to several concerts.

It makes me angry.

The it-could-have-been-me hit my kid hard this morning, and trying to comfort her is very difficult.
I got to spend a day with the euphoric and hysteric 12-13-14-year-olds last Sunday and know for a fact that there is no happier people on the planet than those kids just after the Ariana Grande gigs.
The thought of that makes my heart bleed today.

I also can't stop thinking of Grande herself. She's only 23. This is *so* not her fault, but how can she move on from this?

It's very random and very painful.

I wish we could unfuck the world, but I don't know how.

Tonite in Haarlem Wovenhand and Slim Cessna's Auto Club ... I liked Slim better than David Eugene ... he's so fucking loud these days ... no banjo or accordian ...
Still good but dunno if I want to see em for a 5th time.
Slim was awesome!

I've kind of gone off D.E.E. these days, like you said - too loud and no banjo/accordion. Did you ever hear that album by the Denver Gentlemen? "Introducing..."? You should, if you haven't. They had different members over the years but it was some of the 16HP guys and some of the Slim Cessna guys before they had those bands. I haven't listened to it in ages but I remember loving it when I was really into that Denver scene 15+ years ago. I do remember it being pretty weird... and the liner notes are nearly unreadable... but... when has that ever stopped us 8)

As for concerts: I have tons of good stuff coming up. Mr. Zorn has got lots of shows coming up in the next couple of weeks (5 shows between now and June 5) as well as Marc Ribot, Ghost Train Orchestra and some other fun ones... I just bought a ticket for the Atheist Gospel Trombone Choir, because... well, how could I possibly resist?

Certainly a very irresistible name.

Pat Donohue with Richard Kriehn the other night at the little 318 just across the street from my shop. Great players! https://www.facebook.com/terry.hart.9809/videos/10209755409625647/

Amen!
Hans (BoomBoom) told me about Slim and the Denver connection. Never knew. Loved 16HP and Wovenhand.
Now I need to look into that whole scene! Thanks for the tip Sarah.
I asked BoomBoom: DEE is heavily or rather heavenly into the Lord and Slim sings about Jesus too but much more tongue-in-cheek.
He and Jay Munly signed the vinyl. Munly really looks like he could be Jimmie 'the singing brakeman" Rodgers' grandkid!
