So I did end up going to the Tegan & Sara show on Friday. It was my first time at Aragon and it wasn’t as bad as I expected. I was expecting the worst but it was a pretty nice venue, much nicer than Congress Theatre. The sound wasn’t that great. There was an echo off the back wall from the drums and it was kind of hard to hear the vocals. I got there a little late so I didn’t see any of the opening bands. Tegan & Sara were good. They started off playing like eight songs from the new album. Good songs but I am still not very familiar with them. It was the second time I saw them. I liked them more the first time but they were still good. However, I did not like their acoustic version of “Back In Your Head.” It’s one of my favorite songs but that version was not doing it for me. Overall, a good experience and I am now more likely to see shows at Aragon in the future.  TOC has some photos of the show here.

The Hold Steady released another song from their new album.  I need to listen to it some more but it’s good. I am still undecided as to whether I will see them play L.A. in May.

It looks like Fat Mike’s SXSW performance will have some consequences, he got banned from Emo’s.

I might go see You Say Party! We Say Die! on Wednesday @ Empty Bottle. Not too familiar with them but I love going to shows at Empty Bottle.
