    I don't like them, but they'd probably go with the casual stuff you wear. That's probably not very helpful. Not at all a dig at your casual fits, either.

    Which of the following (any or all) concert tickets should I get:

    - Mark Kozelek (former Sun Kil Moon)
    - Handsome Furs (leaning toward skipping, since I just saw Wolf Parade)
    - Sleigh Bells (liked what I caught of their set opening for LCD Soundsystem last fall)
    - Yeasayer
    - Iron & Wine (haven't gotten his new album yet, although I ordered it; I like some of his earlier stuff and find other things too slow/quiet)

    Already bought tickets to:

    - Cut Copy
    - TV on the Radio
    - Elephant Six Collective "Holiday Surprise" show (not sure what that last part means)


    Yeasayer is pretty decent live, I was gonna get tix for the Iron & Wine show here and they sold out in less than an hour. I agree though that some of their stuff is great and some boring, but Shepherd's Dog is a great album though. Seeing Cut Copy as well later this month, can't wait! Just saw that Miami Horror and High Contrast will also be here around the same week, should be good times. And not sure who Sleigh Bells is playing with in your area but CSS is joining them here so I'm def gonna go just to see them.

    Yeah, it's CSS here, too. I'm not familiar. I'll have to check them out.

    Can't believe Iron & Wine sold out so quickly in DC. 9:30, I assume?

    I'm all for asymetrical stuff but it kinda bugs me here, seems half-assed and looks more like a defect than intentional as a result.

    Idk about those pants, they're super limiting. I think you'de be better off with cleaner simpler items that you can layer and combine in "complex" ways if you want. I don't like the jersey part here, but I'm still 100% on the elastic cuffs you know that.

    Wow, I remember tickets selling out quick when I was in DC, but that's some next-level shit. On the plus side, there's always a chance he'll add a second night since the first sold so quickly. I asked the girl at the box office when I bought TV on the Radio tickets, and she said the Iron & Wine show probably wouldn't sell out at all.

    I realize that the Electric Factory is bigger than 9:30, but still, A Day to Remember, All Time Low, and Brand New all sold out.

    C'mon, Philly. You're better than that.

    I already have a type 3-ish jacket in indigo, but...I kinda wanna be able to rock a Canadian tuxedo with my SExDBxSxS12s (but, like, the white dinner jacket version of the Canadian tuxedo).
