One More Night - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
One More Night
I'm headed back out to the Hotel Congress this evening for what is sure to be another late night. I can't say that I'm looking forward to the times between the bands I want to see, since I'm too tired to socialize properly. But I have to go, since I intend to incorporate reflections on this year's incarnation of the festival into an essay I'm revising. For those of you who need prodding to get out of the house, the things I'm looking foreward to are A) Friends of Dean Martinez, who were awesome accompanying that silent film on Friday (8pm); B) Howe Gelb, because I interviewed him and because he's so crucial to the history of Tucson's alternative scene; and C) the triumverate of Al Foul, the Pork Torta and the Weird Lovemakers, who played the same stage last year and were all fabulous. There are movies tomorrow, too, though I'm not sure I'll have any energy left by then.

Dammit. I should go for Howe Gelb. I love the shit outta his songs, his approach, all of it. His Sno Angel album is awesome. Kinda reminds me of Smog, only more Tucson.

He had just flown in from Ireland and was exhausted and therefore both sloppier and flatter than usual. There were a few moments that caught my attention, but it was the worst show of his I've seen overall and by a fairly large margin.

Some of the other bands were great, though.

Yes. They were great, I thought. More "rock" -- faster songs, tighter execution -- than when I last saw them a few years ago. But great.
