    Tue 14 Apr – Crystal Castles

    i drove over 7 hours to see them, and they fired their opening act at 4:30pm. people started showing up at 8 when the doors opened...but they
    never did. 2 hours later the entire show was canceled.



    i wanted to swallow a knife.

    Fri 13 Feb – Girl Talk, Mad Happy

    one big '80s dance party. it was all about accessories, glasses, bandanas, leatards, leggings, face paint, neon, and everyone was in groups of at least 20.

    Thu 12 Jul – Ryan Adams

    well the show lastnight was incredibly beautiful. the show started a little after 830pm and there was no opening act. i loved how they were set up: a tight group of ryan adams on the left, drums, bass, guitar, and book ended by a baby grand on the left and a steel guitar on the right. the lights were very dim and beautiful as they bounced off the velvet curtain in the background! the show was very stripped down and mellow. he wore sunglasses during the second half. the crowd was nice and quiet, just taking it in. ryan did not engage the crowd all, and the last song he got up and came to the front and sang goodnight hollywood blvd. then everyone walked off. the crowd, expecting an encore of heartbreaker songs, did not get one. later i found out that they did not do an encore, because the band was pissed that GPAC would not let them smoke on stage :)

    Sat 19 May – Bright Eyes, Gillian Welch, Oakley Hall

    that was the best night of my life in 2007. what a fantasically amazing-can't breathe-without-you-all-or-nothing-want-to-repeat-it-over-and-over show!
    this was my first time seeing mr. oberst and cassadaga was just starting to grow on me. when those lights went out at the ryman (after gillan welch played) i was getting excited butterflies in my stomach! i couldn' believe that i was about to witness bright eyes. everyone came out dressed in white. the instruments were white as well as the the cords and conor's fingernails :) clairaudients was the most beautiful song to start the set with. the majority of the set was cassadaga, with one or two songs off older albums. false advertisement, i believe in symmetry, etc. first day of my life was a different arrangement with the full band. the encore was a song that gillian welch, david rawlings wrote in the dressing room during the show, and the final song of the night was lua! what a great show and such an incredible venue, filled with so much history. truly a memory i will never forget :)


    Clairaudients (opener)



    Man Named Truth (new song during the encore)
