I think the problem lies in me not getting out to enough live shows in the last few months. Live is where a lot of bands are making it and live also happens to be where the money is at in the music business. Live is where I'm more frequently impressed by a band or get caught up in the mood of the audience. Live is where a certain number of bands just seem to sound better than they do recorded.
So to remedy this, I'm staying in tonight. I had a ticket to see Warpaint at Scala but I'm nursing an annoying cold so I'm going to sit in my thermals, slurp soup and generally feel sorry for myself. It's bad timing but at least this is one of the bands I have actually seen once before this year.
over and out.
