Okay, next question... Who are y'all most EXCITED about seeing? I'm sure there'll be some Bens in there for all y'all lucky people going to see him... For me it's Built to Spill without a doubt... I never thought they'd come here! After them, Sparklehorse, who I narrowly missed out on last October (it was an 18+ venue and i wasn't 18 till November...) so I was relieved to hear this afternoon that they would be coming back this year :)

you're a fan?  i thought you hated death cab... some poeople on here do...
also i was bummed to see keane presale tickets sold out before i got home, but still i think this year's starting off pretty good...

No, I love Death Cab, The Postal Service, etc. - I just didn't agree that him joing The Bens would necessarily make them a credible band when they already (in my opinion) are. I mean, if he did join The Bens, that'd be awesome, but it'd make scheduling, etc. wayyyyyy more difficult. I'd love to see him solo, but tickets looked pretty expensive (and, obviously, he's not playing here...).

not trying to add insult to injury, but they were like 15 or 20 bucks here... that's something around 8 pounds i believe...

and now i AM seeing keane, taht's exciting.  They're really not as popular over here....
nobody deserves posts on their myspace site asking if they stabbed basketballs.

Mute Math's one of my latest addictions, that is why I asked.


What am I looking most forward to? Uh, Ben? It's the only show I've got coming. Hahahaha.

Well, I'm most excited about seeing Weird Al, since this is the only concert I'm attending so far. Too bad I have to wait until July.

may 7 - Mute Math and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
may 8 - Modest Mouse

I know not of this Mute Math, but feel free to send Boris over to these shores! And when I say 'these shores', I mean at a venue closer than Newcastle.

Mute Math was just in the UK. They're fantastical. I've worked with them. They're nice. They're like an Electronic BF5, at least in their energy. They're insane. I love them!

If Melissa doesn't send it to you, I gots it too.

so, not only is Mute Math playing with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.  they're also playing with The Cinematics.  3 bands that i love in one show.  15 dollars!  i'm stoked!

the only downside...it's the monday of finals week.  :-(  luckily enough, i don't have a final the next day!  YAYS!

unfortunately, i can't go see Modest Mouse because i have 2 finals the next day.  one of which is at 7:30 in the AM.  ugh...

Modest Mouse are only playing two shows over here; one is "All Tomorrows Parties" which is some sort of festival that actually looks quite good; Built to Spill, Sparklehorse and Wilco are all playing it, too. Unfortunately, it's in a random (by my standards, at least) location and tickets are rather a lot of money. The only other show MM are playing is the same day as Built to Spill are on in Nottingham and is in London... Woe is me.
