Yay, Stag. Midtown Sizzler is a sizzler of an album.
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:15pm Alex of Chicago:

Walking the dog listening to Go4. Pretty great.
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:17pm chicopotle:

Ha! Last time I️ heard that band on the radio I️ think it was when I️ was a dj .... at my high school radio station... in the people’s republic of Massachusetts...

this Gang of Four rules. I found a mint copy of Entertainment! in the $2 bin. SCORE

Is it chilly in the Windy City, Alex? Pretty cold in Brooklyn. I'm sitting in front of the wood stove with kitties.

@chicopotle we have a lot in common, you and I.
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:19pm Alex of Chicago:

I highly recommend cheap bluetooth speakers for the dog people out there.
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:22pm Alex of Chicago:

@JulieM it's brisk. but nothing like what's to come.

Great opening set. As always
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 9:25pm Julie M:

Well, bless all you dog owners; I wouldn't want to think about taking a pup out for a walk at night in brisk weather. Cuz I'm not that tough. (did you see what I did there?)

@efd: I️ maybe should cop to listening to a lot of WZBC back in the late Cold War.... and more recently on the web.
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:27pm artbrau:

Howdy! Did you know that efd has played "The Bedazzler" by Stag 14 times in the last 5 years. His most played Artist is Bowie with 89 spins? Also that TCM is the most similar show to EFD on WFMU, statistically speaking? Do you care?

alright, good to know!

Dear God, I like Street Eaters! Don't spare the furniture!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 9:43pm efd:

I would just like to point out that there are exactly two (2) people in this band.
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:44pm Stevel:

That's a lot of freaking noise for two people!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/8/17 9:45pm Cooh John:

Quite an intense experience when I logged on. Keep it up! Lotsa energy coming from 2 people. Would like to see a triple bill of duos some day.
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:46pm artbrau:

  Wed. 11/8/17 9:50pm Chucktown Dan:

Fire y'all !!!!!
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:51pm Ahmad:

I caught them in a living room in DC last Thursday. Needless to say, it was intense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 9:52pm efd:

@Ahmad can you confirm whether the living room is still standing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/8/17 9:52pm medson:

these two are fantastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 9:52pm efd:

also thanks for spreading the word about tonight's show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/8/17 9:53pm Bootsie:

Great book, but NOT an easy read. Really enjoying this set!
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:54pm Ahmad:

Yeah, it is. :) They did have to be done before the noise ordinance kicked in at 10, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 9:56pm efd:

ha, I bet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 9:57pm efd:

I would just like to point out that the two instruments in this band are drums and bass.

That's right: bass.

Not guitar.

Bass.
  Wed. 11/8/17 9:58pm Stevel:

Holy shit. That is all.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 9:58pm Julie M:

Well played, Street Eaters, well played.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/8/17 10:00pm Cooh John:

How does that bass sound like a guitar?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/8/17 10:00pm Kat in Chicago:

I like this racket
  Wed. 11/8/17 10:01pm ?:

Super programming
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:02pm efd:

@Cooh John I don't know from stringed instruments myself, but I'm sure part of it has to do with the fact that he's playing through two different amps simultaneously.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/8/17 10:02pm medson:

The Magic Factory strikes again : )
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/8/17 10:05pm Bootsie:

Wait, What? Bass??
  Wed. 11/8/17 10:05pm Stevel:

They sure know how to end a song, much less playing them. Woof!
  Wed. 11/8/17 10:08pm Stevel:

Did the bassist use many pedals? Mostly, it seems he's just playing the shit out of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:08pm efd:

Mostly the latter, but some of the former.
  Wed. 11/8/17 10:12pm Stevel:

Again: Woof!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:13pm Alex of Chicago:

Marissa can shred. Happy I got to see that live, once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:13pm efd:

For some of the shows on their tour Marissa came out and did a Gang Of Four cover with them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:14pm Alex of Chicago:

omg
  Wed. 11/8/17 10:16pm Stevel:

...and, of course, they'll be heading through Fort Wayne, eh? Eh?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:21pm efd:

Not up to me, Stevel! :)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:40pm Alex of Chicago:

i have to ask, what rock club in seattle?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:47pm efd:

uhhhhh.... I don't remember! I think it was in the Ballard neighborhood?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:53pm Alex of Chicago:

probably the backstage or the tractor tavern. sorry, just touched a nerve.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 10:56pm efd:

pretty sure it was Tractor Tavern - that sounds familiar now that you mention it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 11:03pm chris_in_space:

Tuning in late this evening. Delighted to hear a couple of vintage AC/DC tracks. Man, how I cranked Problem Child when I was 11 years old.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 11:06pm efd:

my favorite part of the song is when it starts back up again after the false ending.
  Wed. 11/8/17 11:09pm Mike tp:

  Wed. 11/8/17 11:28pm Stevel:

Great sets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/8/17 11:35pm efd:

thanks Stevel. I feel like I should have planned it better, but too late now!
  Wed. 11/8/17 11:38pm Stevel:

Sounds good to me. Glad you're playing the Grace Jones.
  Wed. 11/8/17 11:40pm Stevel:

Ride the wave!
  Wed. 11/8/17 11:57pm Senor Headache:

Haha, I had the same experience with "Yesterdays Hero", Mr. Davies, and was disappointed when I found out the The Bay City Rollers didn't write it.
