by Charlotte Deaver

Since I began this blog out of an urge to write about bands I've seen this year, here's a list of some of the shows at which I've been having such a good time:

(This has become the list replacing the books-I've-read-this-year list that I haven't made in years. PriORITIES, folks.)

Nada Surf, Say Hi to Your Mom (Bowery Ballroom) 10.06. 05***
Robbers on High Street (Mercury Lounge) 10.07.05
Deerhoof, Lavender Diamond (Northsix) 9.28.05

***so good.

My son played at Knitting Factory last year with Larval- he liked the crowd and the venue. This is a very- umm- eclectic assortment of bands. :-)

Thanks for this and your other post (at coffee smile). Is this an eclectic assortment of music? I guess it's because I like music of my age AND your son's!
