If she says we partied, well I'm pretty sure we partied

Nick Cave's rock show was one of the best I've ever seen.
I'm working lots and working on working on non-work things during the day.
Social selectivity kicking back in both by circumstance and by choice.
Looking forward to later this week when I'll have new money and a chance to maybe buy clothes, put some in the bank and drink a pint or two.
The Hold Steady's first album also kicks ass, putting them solidly in my "favorites" category-- but I'm highly suspicious of their upcoming "stay positive." maturity is often just a code for getting boring.

Nick Cave's rock show. . . you sir are an asshole.

I found the same thing when I saw him a while ago. Although I'm more a fan of the slower, quieter, jazz-loungier kind of Nick Cave (a la "The Boatman's Call") I really dug his live show, even the rocking bits.

yeah-- as a fan of both the rocking and the lounging sides of Cave I was thoroughly impressed.
But this was definitely Bad Seeds the Rock Band-- I think they even played a new Grinderman song.

I could have gone for a few more piano songs, but all in all I can't complain. They did do "Far From Me" off Boatman's Call.
