Weekend Recap

Kind of bummed about John Peel, so just the facts about last weekend.

BF was out of town at the NASCAR race in Martinsville. Stayed in Friday.

Saturday - Death Cab For Cutie/Pretty Girls Make Graves. Death Cab was awesome. I was surprised that they seemed really tight as a band. For some reason I expected them to sound a little thin...maybe just respectable backup music for Gibbard's lyrics. But they really had it together and I came away thinking that they were a really good band. I was duly impressed. PGMG were also quite impressive. I went into their set completely cold, knowing absolutely nothing by them. I'm a sucker for chicks that rock and they did not disappoint. I'd go see them again in a heartbeat. By the end of the night, I purchased 2 Death Cab EPs and the PGMG CD in a slightly drunken buying binge. Not the first time that's happened. It certainly won't be the last. I was hoping to catch a bit of Morel's set over at Velvet, but it was way too late by the time DCFC were done. Instead, I headed to The Eagle for about an hour before heading home.

Sunday - Laid around on my lazy ass all day, then headed to BlogJam at DC9. That was pretty interesting. A little bit of everything: sex, politics, music, death, etc. 2 of the speakers didn't show up, which I think meant there were more out-of-town bloggers that local folks. (I haven't bothered counting, so I could be wrong about that.) Fun night, even though I didn't stay for Blowoff, since it was a school night.
