    She's one of my musical mentors (she just doesn't know it yet).
    Sometimes I really hate money.

    Egads, the 20th anniversary of Throwing Muses? My gawd, I'm old.

    i think i enjoyed CSS a tad bit more than Ladytron.

    thanks for the tip; after lovefoxxx said they'd be back i realized i had no idea where she said they were going to be, and google had not revealed its secrets to me yet.

    and to the girl who was so offended because i wasnt dancing during "seventeen": thanks for the gropes but i was not nearly drunk enough. being a middle-aged repressed white male will do that to you.

    i noticed that CSS was in the audience for ladytron. they seem like a bunch of kool kids.

    I thought the same thing about seeing Regina Spektor at the Avalon in Boston, which looks like it is roughly similar capacity to the Fillmore. It was packed, and the show sounded great.

    I can also vouch for the Kristin Hersh show, we saw the Throwing Muses/50 Foot Wave mini-tour a copule of months ago in Boston and it still blew me away.

    I saw ESG play the Detroit Electronic Music Festival a few years ago. Those middle-aged Puerto Rican ladies rock. :) Really, though, seeing them and Liquid Liquid playing the same day was one of the musical highlights of my show-going career.
