Dazed and Bemused

Drunken recollections, boring anecdotes, and obscure references

Going to see The Delgados, Crooked Fingers, and a local band called the Hot IQs tonight at the Larimer Lounge, convenient staggering distance from my palatial estate. Was there last night for Happy Hour, my liver's not very happy, but the rest of me was. They had the Zippo Hot Tour semi-finals going on, kind of a battle of the bands competition. Heard three bands, all of whom thought they were channelling the Queens of the Stone Age, and all of whom were wrong. Thank god for Lady Alcohol.

I'm probably going to torture myself by going back next week, since the friendliest of the swarm of attractive Zippo girls promised me a lighter. I don't smoke, but it will make a nice prop when I tell the story, "Yep, sat through six QSA wannabe bands to get this bad boy". Besides it will go nicely with my spanky new Zippo lanyard, to which I plan to attach an "If found, please return to Neko Case" card.


Today's music so far:
Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
The Delgados - The Great Eastern
The Thrills - So Much for the City
