fiery furnaces concert review (11.4.06)



so, i journeyed afar this weekend to see the fiery furnaces play a show in columbus, ohio. the set was fantastic, bursting with high energy and momentous beats... eleanor was a brilliant stage presence, despite her maladie, a little throat trouble she preferred to call "Mr. Froggy McRibbit."

for those who appreciate something more than ordinary, you should consider giving albums Blueberry Boat and their newest, Bitter Tea, a listen. it's slightly obscure indie rock with a twist of lemon and bumpy gravel... gravel collected from travelled roads in jungles and ancient forests, wedged into tire treads and gathered in shoes... gravel made from fruity pebbles cereal.

in short, they're fantastic, and that's why i was willing to travel the distance to see them live. i knew they would put on a wild show, and indeed it was everything i expected.

give their music a try. it's certainly a "bitter tea," a bit of a difficult brew to swallow at first, but so smooth and warming to the heart once you finally get it down, you'll wonder why you never thought to try it before...

support independent everything! rah!!!

p.r. schpam
ahoy, just trois questions fur vous:
0. why no myspace account?
1. query: do you socialweb ppl generally not put your email address on your socialwebsites? (it would really help with my understanding, s.v.p.)
2. podcasting: i have no server connection outside of indymedia, but here are a couple folks like yourself use:
corporatey - odeo.com (now under new management) and godaddy.com (i understand it is called the podcasting network)
less corporatey- http://www.pwop.com/ (*check out one of my fave podcasts mondays.pwop.com, btw - "pwop" is the sound your palm makes when it hits your own forehead (-;)

merci buckets et una buena soire/matin/whatever

0. i have a moral beef against facebook and such services... less with myspace, i suppose, but still, i don't like the idea of that kind of networking. it's too superficial.

and i don't like livejournal either.

1. i don't post my email because i get spammed enough already. and i've kinda gotten over my spam art kick (but mostly just b/c i haven't gotten a good one in a REALLY long time...)
