Shellac is the reason EGC exists today.

EGC exists because Kevin worked his back to dust making it.

Steve helped. He tells me I helped. Other people did, probably.

Any credit he gives anyone else is way way way way too much.

How many FMs will be at the Minneapolis show on Friday? I might be bringing my modular with if anyone is down for a noise-making/jam session hangout on Saturday.

Flashbacked on the Millenium Park show a few years back, Bob and Steve running around the band shell during Wingwalker. A life affirming moment.

Also, the scores of parents with young children streaming out during "Prayer To God."

Man, I am bummed that I didn't get tickets to tonight's show. Been too long since I've seen Shellac.

Shellac were great the other night in Chicago. This was my first time seeing them. Do they usually drag out 'The End of Radio' to where Todd is taking his drums off stage, and then Steve leaves, and Bob is the only one left playing the bass riff? I thought that was pretty cool.

I met Bob at the merch table and bought a shirt afterwards. Question: what does the OMO on the shirt stand for?
- "Whatever happened to that album?"
- "I broke it, remember? I threw it against the wall, and it like, shattered."

its been far too long since I have seen Shellac as well.

I am trying to think when it was. Could it have been in Worcester, MA with Kustomized? Shit that was, like 20 years ago!

I hope they play NYC or Philly this year.

It looks like "OMO", admittedly, which means "homo" here in Italy...

Best Shellac show ever. Hadn't seen them since 2009 or so in LA with Arcwelder. They had a lot of moves and definitely explored the space. Their stage show has evolved quite a lot. Todd poked a hole in his kick drum. They played for an hour and a half. All the hits. All the sing a longs.

Thanks again guys, great show.

You'll all be shocked to know that after the show they sold out of XL tee shirts almost immediately.

Very. He's a joy to watch perform. One of the greatest drummers of all time.

Last night makes two out of two times that I've brought someone to see Shellac who'd never heard them before and that the person with me has staggered out of there afterwards clutching their head and moaning "Dude, incredible" (my paraphrase) and vowing to buy every Shellac record immediately. Ladies and gentlemen, the power of rock music. NC.

My dad came to see Shellac one time and he had a huge smile on his face the whole show and couldn't stop talking about how good they were for like a week.
