After Augustana, I went to the Casbah for another of Tim Pyles' Anti-Monday League. It was a night of shoegazey melancholy and the genre never ceases to amaze me because bands you would think of as "mellow" in their vibe are still really fucking loud and usually accompanied by musicians that totally rock. That's really all I can say about the show...all three bands were good, I was happy to be there, but I was equally as happy when I was back home and my head was hitting my pillow.
The Life and Times (They had this super bright white spotlights on them that not only created weird shadows, but also made it really freakin hot, so I didn't stay up front for long):
The Appleseed Cast (Really, really good. The drummer was insane. The singer is sexy in the way that Wayne Coyne of Flaming Lips is sexy. Clearly I am quite the music journalist.):
sorry to the 4th guy that was on the other side of the stage; I wasn't feeling ambitious enough to take your picture.
I would really like to see The Twilight Sad tonight, but I don't know if I can do my third night in a row at the Casbah. I've got some thinkin to do, for sure.
