how can they sing with their hands over their mouths?

Just noticed that the promo ads for two upcoming shows at the Pabst are eerily similar.

M. Ward:
Bon Iver:

Anyway speaking of shows, it's music season in my world. I just saw several great shows at Summerfest:

  • Stevie Wonder (freakin' amazing)
  • The Cougs (John Mellencamp...okay, that was pretty cheesy, but it was damn fun, and you know you know the words!)
  • Polyphonic Spree (!!!!!!!!!!)
  • Alabama 3 (or A3 ... the band that did the Sopranos theme song. Totally incredible live. Wish I could see them at a better venue. Also wish I'd realized the show started at 6 vs 6:30)
  • Alejandro Escovedo (rockin)
  • Thievery Corporation (a fun show, but for the 16-year-old drunk b****ches behind us)
And I've got several more good ones ahead of me:
  • July 7: The Dodos at Cactus Club (though it is Storm the Bastille and I'm going to have go solo) Or nevermind...pitchfork lied!!
  • July 19-20: Fleet Foxes, Vampire Weekend, !!!, The Hold Steady, Jarvis Cocker, Animal Collective, Mahjongg, Dirty Projectors, Apples in Stereo, M. Ward, The Dodos (again), Spirtualized, Bon Iver, Dinosaur Jr, Cut Copy, Spoon and a sh*t ton of other bands at Pitchfork Music Festival
  • July 31: CSS / The Go! Team @ Turner Hall (still gotta get tix!)
  • August 1-3: The Kills, Gogol Bordello, Mates of State, Bloc Party, RADIOHEAD, Black Lips, Dr. Dog, The Gutter Twins, MGMT, Explosions in the Sky, Jamie Lidell, Broken Social Scene, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Wilco, The Weakerthans, Brazilian Girls, Chromeo, Black Kids, Iron & Wine, Girl Talk, The National, Kanye and more bands than you can shake a stick at @ Lollapalooza
  • August 14: Bon Iver @ the Pabst
  • September 5 (maybe): Black Keys @ Turner
  • September 9: Spirtualized @ Turner
Okay, there's about $65 in tickets I still have to purchase. Anyone wanna help a soul sister out?
