The Futureheads were completely acceptable
Zieg and I have been having a fierce battle over this band since their first record came out over a year ago. I never got into their record after a weak listening and lumped them up with the shit like Franz and Bloc Party and other excited rock bands with angles. Last night Zieg and Ellie convinced me to go see them, luring me with a free ticket. The show was good. I liked it. They are a band worthy of lauds. Don't know that I will ever buy one of their records, but if someone burned it for me - I would throw it on the ol' stereo, swil a beer and enjoy my spirit.
Particular highlights of the show involved:
Decent Days & Nights, A to B, Stupid and Shallow, Meantime, (the cover of)Hounds Of Love, & Back To The Sea. Also we ran into T-bay and this is how the conversation went with him, "hey whats up - this is my girlfirend - we worked at Bonnaroo transporting talent. We drove....(list of bands)
Particular low lights of the show involved:
Midway through the set an overwhelming smell of human shit was cast in my direction. It was terrible - I swear I thought the guy in front of me took a break in his pants. The weird thing is Zieg and Ellie behind me couldn't smell it until they switched places with me. So I guess whomever it was had the power to shit their pants and keep the odor in check, at least to a small diameter.
