    Damn, this is a big season. Between this, Swans, Roky Erikson I am gonna be so fucking broke.

    But yeah I'll see you there.

    Nice to see two dates at Metro. Will see if my guest list connections at Smart Bar can get me upstairs for the show.

    Love their music but have never been to one of their concerts. Would love to take the wife but she would get either bored, weirded out, or some variation of the two.

    Can anybody who has been to their concerts give a brief review? I know they incorporate a lot of film loops into their shows but that's about it.

    What would a set list look like? Their albums wouldn't seem to break up into a diverse one very well.

    I've never heard of this "band" that plays "music."

    archive.org has a lot of bootlegs, so that might give you some idea of what they might play.

    Yeah, given that a lot of their pieces are 15 to 20 minutes long, I wonder what their playlist will look like and how long the show will run. Don't get me wrong, I love GY!BE but spending 4 hours with other people who also like GY!BE would be depressing.

    Makes me think of a Robert Rich Somnium sleep concert, with everybody lying on the ground for 4 hours.

    They won't be coming to Australia [​IMG], one of the few bands I'd pay good money to see live.
