One of the few times I was at CHAC was for a video night. People apparently went out in the neighborhood with fancy cams and broadcasted short performances in realtime. It would be 'cool' if we could have a live visual feed from Neumos tonight, or viceversa.
Tortoise: breaking the bounds....of 1993. Since 1993.
Oooh, look out everybody, the pop guy's gettin' snarky!
You know what's really groundbreaking? Indie pop! You just never know what's coming next!
I'm with Snarf--and amazed that a band as bereft of ideas as Tortoise would stick together as long as they have. (16 years! Or, approximately 6 more years than the Beatles!) Imagine if, like, the Sea and Cake was still around today. Wouldn't that be almost creepy? Wait a second...
Well, Levislade, if "groundbreaking" was really important, maybe you'd have a point. Or not. But it isn't, so who cares?
Because, as I'm sure you will agree, SNARK is the important thing here.
I don't think it matters if they are groundbreaking or not, just if they sound cool. As for that, they do.
Portland's Yellow Swans just got added to this bill, so if you were hedging your bets 'til now, go! And if you were already going, go early.
