Last night we went to the most stupidly, dumbly, retardedly, geniusly billed show of all time - Vietnam + ARE Weapons (checking voicemail above). The show was to celebrate the release of the Nam's album, which came out yesterday, but can we just pause to say that whoever thought up that bill is fucking crazy and also fucking SO HIRED??? Okay, whatever, we're pretty sure Vietnam just asked the Weapons to play after them and that's all there is to it but still. Anyway, the line was out the door, Vietnam sounded awesome as always (it really is the sound itself that makes that band so epic, the songs are kind of besides the point) and the ARE Weapons seemed like they were from another era, definitely either 2003 or maybe definitely 2013? Lastly we'd be remiss if we didn't note that, at every Vietnam show we've been to in the last year, the place has just been crawling with, yes, definitely some dashing dudes, but even more noticeably, multitudes of beautiful women. And that, lasses and gents, does not make an awesome rock show less awesome.
