ESB PLAYLIST 4/1/05
whew. what a show today. made up for the blunders last week.
next week is our fundraising show (see previous entry for details and hearty begging), but in two weeks, we're gonna do a two show special on the upcoming live gigs in toronto. LCD Soundsystem / MIA? check. Black Mountain? uh-huh. Dead Meadow and No Dynamics at Santa Cruz? believe it. Out Hud and Hella? you got it. Regina Spektor? oohh baby, we love her! we're going to try and attend all of them and bring you frontline reports of the carnage. in the meantime, go to the horseshoe tonight and see Mayor McCa's farewell Canada show. he's moving to England for a while and we'll miss him dearly. he hits the stage at 9:30, so come early.
