Best show: Jennifer O'Connor opening for Come last week at Union Pool -- AMAZING. Jennifer played new jams with loops and beats, and, well Thalia Zedek shredding. Just soul-shattering.
  4:42pm Adrian in London:

Best shows of 2018: Winter Kills, the reformed Pano Magic at Antenna Studios in Crystal Palace, were utterly magnificent. Ten songs of incredible beauty. And Sevdaliza at The Barbican in London was amazing. She can heal us all. And The Contessa’s pick was in the top three too…

Tuning in late! Saw altogether too few shows this year, but Scott Thompson's one-man Buddy Cole show was one for the ages. I also caught a very cool and intimate solo show by Negativland's Mark Hosler (and - shameless plug - I got to interview him too! bostonhassle.com...

I love the way Colombians speak in sing-song Spanish and roll Rs for emphasis (I watch a lot of telenovelas)
  5:15pm Karen:

Did I just put myself as less cool for using Guster on the Ocean as an excuse to both go to Maine and finally marry my man of 15 years? Because even if so, I’m still smiling about it. Was an amazing weekend!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Passaic River Blues:

@Ken: No, I didn't attend. I barely do anything worthwhile, but that Big Blood show was very, very tempting. I have to find that call from BB's daughter to W'n'Bake--sounds adorable.

Last night when I played this LOUD, it made me weep when she screams "Sarah" at the end. SO SO heartfelt!

Nothing wrong with a little over-excitement
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm coelacanth∅:

Sheila (from way back @4.08) i thought there was something about english/japanese that made that happen. i need to clarify that . i think i've been saying certain names backward for a long long time.

Quick hello and happy new year SheilaB and boom boomers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm melville:

Thank You Sheila! Have a great weekend everyone!!
Avatar 5:53pm Itzall Ablurr:

Adrrrrrrrrian, yes of course. But no rolling or trills on the "Pretty woman" part, just the sly growl of a lustily leering lemure (with dark sunglasses no less).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Sheila. Hoping 2019 treats you well. Rrrruffles have rrrridges!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm diciassette:
