Stephen Malkmus + The Jicks (with Janet Weiss!) - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Stephen Malkmus + The Jicks (with Janet Weiss!)
A friendly reminder that Stephen Malkmus of Pavement fame plays at Plush tomorrow night. And now Janet Weiss from Sleater-Kinney is playing the drums in his band. When I saw Malkmus play solo acoustic in Portland this past September, he was in fine form and debuted several new songs that sounded even more intricate than his previous compositions. I bet they'll shine live, too.

I can never predict turnout in Tucson, but the Devotchka show at Plush in December was so crowded that, arriving shortly before the announced starting time, I was unable to see or hear much of anything. It would be wise, in other words, to get there as early as possible, if you want an optimal concert experience. You also may want to purchase your tickets in advance online, but will have to do so before midnight I believe. Here's the link, if you're interested. Since I may not be able to attend the show at the Marquee in Tempe on Wednesday and will definitely not be at the Flagstaff show on Thursday, much to my chagrin, I'll be on my way as soon as my partner returns from visiting her dad in the hospital, the very place I'm headed in a few minutes. We're getting to know Northwest Medical Center very, very well.

John Moen, who used to drum with the Jicks, is no slouch, as his current stint with the Decemberists makes clear. But that doesn't mean I'm not champing at the bit to see Janet do her best Gary Young imitation to songs that Gary never could have played on, because they are too fucking complicated.

I am very glad to hear you're father-in-law has been doing better. I've been thinking of you all since learning of his condition, but this has been my first opportunity to check in. I hope he will be home soon.

As it turns out, I will not be able to make it tonight. I have a previous commitment I was not able to rearrange. Please let me know if you decide to go to the Tempe show. I may just be able to join you.

Sorry to hear that. I'll let you know about tomorrow. He's still in ICU, so things remain up in the air.
