Gigs Of (The Rest Of) The Year

Buzzes do not come any more ludicrously savage than this. My excitement is such that I have interrupted an important weekend's debauchery to blog it up. We must have been good people, because we are in for some serious treats.

On Friday 21st November one has the opportunity to see
The Go! Team, Cadence Weapon, and Super Extra Bonus Party in Tripod... This can not be missed. The Go! Team are a superb live act who have released one of the albums of the year in Proof Of Youth. Cadence Weapon is one of the most exciting acts in hip-hop, a consistent fountain of dopeness. Super Extra Bonus Party? You lot should already know about my grá for those lads... Buy tickets for the impending wickedness here.

Nialler speaks of a burgeoning Cadence Weapon remix for Super Extra Bonus Party. How freakin' cool is that!

In other excellent gig-related news, the Irish
Dan Deacon dates have been confirmed. Mister Deacon shall visit Galway (Róisín Dubh, November 30th), Sligo (Model Arts, December 1st) and Dublin (Whelan’s, December 2nd).

Dan Deacon in me beloved Róisíns. The rapturous bedlam of that event in Tripod. Life is indeed good... I take my leave of you now my friends. Misplaced self-confidence, unnecessary man chats, and the fervent consumption of sweet liquor awaits.

All tomorrow's parties, eh?

Slurkid: Ironic t-shirts and neons at the ready my good sir, for the sirens of the "scene" beckon us and we must answer the call!

I'm just jealous, because I can't think of anyone I know here in Edinburgh that would be into seeing Dan Deacon.

(At least not with me, anyway. (Ooh, was that last bit just dry Irish humor, or genuine self pity? (nested brackets, yuck!)))

Slurkid: Too... much... sarcasm... Can... not... compute... Must... assume... the... best... Blog... commments... are... really... not... the... best... forum... for... such... Freudian... discovery... anyway...

The National in Belfast, getting giddy about that....

Manuel: I can't make their gig in Dublin, and I am totally sickened! "Boxer" is one of my favourite albums in ages... My favourite since "Alligator" in fact :)
