It's been quite awhile since I've walked these halls. However I have two tickets from the Vault Pre-sale to Laval, outside of Montreal, for Friday, and can't go. I am basically ready to give them away, perhaps for merch or something. I am up for suggestions if there's interest. I don't want these tickets to go to waste.

After later today, if someone could capture Jack's Newport Folk Fest performance on this website http://www.npr.org/s...-folk-festival/ that would be incredibly appreciated. It will undoubtedly be legendary. So many Third Man bands there and Norah Jones.
Please, pretty please, if anyone's able...
I absolutely adore both bands and think that each and every musician is fantastic. I don't understand the criticism whatsoever and I've seen all of his bands live. They all improvise in their own way in my opinion. But I certainly respect differing opinions as a general rule.
Big Band. Huge thunder of sound. Exciting performance. Not a lot of room onstage, but I didn't see Jackie or anybody else jumpin over the monitors to bump her off her mic and steal her spotlight either, so I don't see anything resembling logic in that idiotic opinion. Jack did his part, the cameras did theirs, lot of action to catch. Enjoying the sounds he caught on a record producing a huge band and a legendary vocalist, way to go JW.Lot of work went into that project for it to be poo pooed on your first TV appearance by some no name moron.
Hit the nail on the f'n head.
All these bands from SoCal are amazing in my opinion,. Dawes, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Cold War Kids, The Romany Rye, The Soft Pack. Cold War Kids are kind of their own thing, but they're still from the same geographical area.
Nevertheless, White Table from Delta Spirit at Prairie Sun Studios
Let's not forget Franny and Zooey, and the rest of the Glass family...some darn good writing.
Could not agree more.
Franny and Zooey is my favorite book in the whole world.
I'm still mourning this,. This is such a loss, even though he was 91. He discussed the most complex themes in his work (ie family, suicide, love faith) with such nuanced and simple rhetoric. I see that parallel with the Stripes. Maybe the WS on the surface don't take on the most complex themes a lot of the time, although they certainly touch upon them (brother and sister), but tthe WS definitely express their art in a nuanced and simple manner too
Oh well enough of my praise. It's sad.
Additionally, I think it's just Brendan's style to spin things dreary occasionally. He doesn't really sugarcoat things. It's good though, because it would seem he's being honest.
As well, The Dead Weather have dates in early '10. That doesn't mean another band can't tour the rest of '10.
Lastly, I just don't like this thread because it's so negative based on a bunch of speculation.
