(clearly a g-chat conversation between Ali & myself)
me: omg, i wish you could have seen screaming females last night it was SO EPIC.
me: like, so, so so epic
Ali: oh yeaaah
me: they play with these tiny amps but because it was in that place it was all mic'd up and they sounded so fucking heavy
me: it was like the perfect sound for them
me: best i've ever heard them
me: and the applause was insane i was like, holy shit, if people didn't like them before...
me: it was straight up insanity
Ali: that is awesome, how was dinosaur jr?
me: they were good, but seriously it was like, such a hard act to follow! they played for an hour and a half which was soooo excessive
me: and they didnt play "in a jar" which was a total bummer
me: you know, it was total dino jr though, they were tight, super shreddy
me: just... its hard seeing bands like that when what theyre doing is "old" - screaming females are just so relevant, it was hard to juxtapose the two and see dino jr and not just think what theyre doing is kinda self-congratulatory
Ali: yeah that makes sense though it's often weird seeing older bands alone let alone with a super strong opening act
me: yeah, absolutely especially when theyre playing like that, for so long - and how SO many bands from that era are doing this now
me: these reunions and new albums and tours
Ali: totally like sonic youth too they have a new album and touring
me: THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I COMPARED IT TO haha
Ali: it's good but like i dunno i feel like i need a break from them or something
Ali: i saw them last summer at mccarren and in LA when they did daydream nation
Ali: i just dont need any new music from them
