We return to our regular schedule after last weekend’s Northside Festival. Happy weekend everybody! It’s a truly wonderful day… and that’s probably only because England just beat Wales in the European Championships… as a result, this entry will be brief, but it’s all about the quality of the acts anyway!
As the great moral philosopher Blain said, “I ain’t got time to bleed”, and so we’re skipping pleasantries today to get right down to it, you have a weekend to enjoy, so here are my recommendations.
I’m pretty sure it means something that the two huge-ass shows that took place this weekend were indie bands playing at Madison Square Goddamn Garden. So who do you think had the more “we’re rock stars and y’all know it” show?
The Strokes featuring Elvis Costello?
Or LCD Soundsystem?
The answer to this is probably clear, but looking at these two side by side really shows how far “indie” music has come in the past 10-ish years, right?
