that man's a balloon

last night i saw The National at Bowery. the first night of five sold out shows. i thought it might be boring. it wasn't. very dynamic, they'd play a mellow new song then something like Abel or Mr. November where the lead singer would wail. i thought i'd get to hear Friend of Mine, i had that one song in my head all day looking forward to the concert. i bought a 7 inch at the show for $2 that was made just for these five nights. i didn't know until on the way home when i opened it up. nice surprise. anyway, missed the openers unfortunately, The Broken West.

last night i went to see Final Fantasy and Beirut at Bowery Ballroom. the concert was sold out but i found a nice girl to sell me a ticket on CL. the show was so good. i got there early to get a prime viewing spot in the balcony. at one point during the encore there were 22 people on stage. i came close to taking pictures, but i was too wrapped up in enjoying it. i bought a FF 7"...cos i need a souvenir of the night. during Owen Pallett's set i was struck with an idea. one that combines art and music. one that will be so great and unique in the beginning, but could easily turn shitty due to greed and capitalism. anyway, the show was so amazing. it's my third time to see FF and first (and not last) of Beirut. AND i got this great idea that is now driving me to do something more in NYC than taking bad jobs in stuffy offices.
