Here’s the event spotlight for this week:
Hudson River School, famous (inside of Provo) for their sweet emo rock and Mormon hymn covers, will be playing their last show “for quite some time” this Saturday (Nov. 13). Apparently they got some deal and they’re going to record a new record, so they’re not going to play live for a while.
So, if you’re into it, their show is Saturday at 7:00pm at the Lo-Fi Cafe. I’m not really sure where that is.
Ok, check out how good yesterday really was:
We got our tests back in Art History, and I was completely expecting to fail it because I didn’t know all of these dates and crazy italian artist names and such, but I actually got an A. How, you ask? Well, apparently the teacher liked the essay section of my test so much that it just completely overshadowed the crappy short facts section. I made some claims on the essay that kind of looked at things in a different light than how he presented it in class, but I guess he loved it. So class was good, and maybe I won’t fail after all. So I get out of class and Ben and Kim are like, You wanna go to Incubus? and I’m all like, I’m poor, and they’re all like ITS FREE! and I’m all like, sweet. Ben and Kim practically own 105.7. They won Green Day tickets, and Incubus tickets, and… well, probably some other stuff, too. So Incubus was pretty sweet (but we missed Sparta) and they did the coolest drum solo ever known to man, SO cool, in fact, that it took 3 members of the band mounting up on percussion instruments, ’cause just one drummer couldn’t contain all of the cool that they needed.
So I broke the sabbath today and went to the Yellowcard/Something Corporate show. I think its ok since yesterday was half-Sunday, too, what with the whole conference thing. The show was great. I got to sit in the adult section, ’cause I’m a big kid, and I have to tell all of you lil’ kids, that the view is a lot better from up there. I know you think its lame ’cause you don’t get to mosh, but seriously, would you rather see the band or push each other? Anyway, I’m glad its only for the big kids ’cause otherwise there wouldn’t be room for me and I wouldn’t feel like I had an unfair advantage anymore. The opener was this killer band from New Zealand called Steriogram. I think they might be my new favorite. I get new favorites a lot. I also decided that all I really need in life is a punk rock princess.
So we go to see the Independents last night, and I was all excited about seeing them, but they weren’t the headlining band; the Queers were. We tried to get there early but we showed up at the theater half an hour late and they were in the middle of their last song. So we pretty much missed the whole show. No offense to the Queers, but we didn’t want to stay since we’d only gone to see the Independents. The ticket guy was cool, so even though there are no refunds allowed, he gave us our tickets back and we sold them to someone else waiting outside. So much for Independents day. The adventure only cost us $2, though, so it’s OK. I’m not angry. Just disappointed.
