There was a woman standing behind me who started raving to her friend about how blown away she was by Shellac. She said she had never heard anything like it and was just enthralled. This was shortly after a scorching opening volley of Canada, Copper, My Black Ass and the Squirrel Song.

Great show last night. It's been way too long since I've seen them, probably 10-15 years. The newest songs are all fantastic live. Really cemented how great Dude Incredible is for me. It was also nice to see a good sized crowd in the main room, all really into and supportive of Shellac and Mono. We had fun being music geeks in between sets, and it was great how easy it was to end up talking to the people around you.

Mono was way way better than I was expecting based on a bit of random research and listening I did before the show. I had a mishap with my keys getting locked in my car before the show, so we missed the beginning of Mono's set, but what we saw was pure audio bliss. I have a lot of respect for bands that can be dreamy and engaging at the same time.

Also met a couple of FMs for the first time at the show last night, which was nice, in spite of my general awkwardness.

The friend that I was with was the guy with the "Bob was a dick to me" question. He (not unlike many musicians, artists, and related nerds) tends to obsess over little things like that, so that goofy banter actually made him feel better about the original (non-)incident.

Fantastic. Very well-considered and interesting responses. It makes me wish FM steve had the time and/or inclination to write more long-form responses like that on the forum here...

The Shellac show I went to in Wellington earlier this year was one of the most male-dominated gigs I've been to. I went with five women - all record-buying fans of the band - and it felt like our group alone represented about half the women there. I have no idea why the gender split was so extreme.

Apparently this had the benefit of leaving the women's toilets empty, so ladies, go see Shellac if you want a clean toilet.

I noticed this too when I saw Godspeed You! Black Emperor back in February. Long line for the men's room, no line at all for the ladies.

Yeah, probably because that LP is a bootleg. The original CD is still on the marketplace though.
