i keep seeing the silversun pickups wherever i go. i think they are stalking me. first i saw the bassist, nikki, at masa one sunday. then i saw her again at the clap your hands say yeah show. then last week i saw the drummer and keyboardist, christopher and joe at the earlimart show. tuesday all four were hanginig out at the
great northern show at spaceland. the last staw was when i saw lead singer brian and his girlfriend leaving the dios show at amoeba last night. ridiculous.
so for the record, the great northern show was good. i’m looking forward to them putting out a proper ep or lp. they sound like earlimart, but lean more towards the thrills with two keyboardists. there might be a bit of the breeders in there too. i wasn’t all that taken by dios (malos). maybe it was because it was at amoeba… maybe it was the crowd of weirdos next to me… they sound like a less catchy beach boys. some of the new songs were good, sorta slow though. boy that lead singer is a big fella.
