I've noticed that Seattle DJs have the most ridiculous DJ names. In that good weird way. They're completely non-threatening.


Sadly I cannot make either, but I would go to both if I could!!

I may have said this before (probably almost exactly one year ago), but you lucky Seattle folks OWE it to us to post detailed reports. Every DJ has to be discussed, you hear me, every single last one of them. Or you can talk about the band, of course.

no offense to the DJs, i'm just not a DJ person, but what i'd like to know is if i have to sit thru a bunch of them before seeing the long winters? and does anybody else find it odd that only one band is paired up w/a bunch of DJs???

I forgot to mention that this is TLW's first appearance as an electroclash dub ensemble. Their genre-bending orchestrations -- deftly melding their previous alterna-grunge stylings with racks of synths, floor-rumbling beats and the addition of a female backing vocalist whose specialty is none other than the almighty vocoder -- are sure to please traditional rock and DJ/MC fans alike.

I think about that everytime I check this thread.

I'd say the idea is sorta that you dance to the music DJs play? or maybe that isn't the hip thing in the States anymore?

perhaps the reasoning behind it is that a band sort of provides a bridge between the Bumbershoot band vibe, and the post-Bumbershoot Dance night vibe?

i'm not against dancing and i don't think too many people are here are, but my reason for going would be to see the long winters so that would be what i would be waiting on.

Hmmm... my guess - the DJs going first and LW afterwards wouldn't make much sense?... (especially since the website has listed the line-up the other way round).

I was joking about the hip thing, although the internet of course is my lifeline to know what's gonna be hot over the next few months. My guess is the Long Winters are gonna be hip again. But then again, maybe I'm spending too much time in one particular corner of the Net...

Wow, what a great show it was. It had been far, far too long since I had had my John Roderick fix. The whole band (but especially John) looked like they were having a blast on stage. Nabil and Mike did awesome in their The Long Winters debut. Here is the setlist:

Ultimatum*
It'll Be a Breeze*
Carparts
Cinnamon
Scared Straight
Delicate Hands
Blue Diamonds
Shapes
Scent of Lime
Stupid
Sound of Coming Down
Medicine Cabinet Pirate

*= John solo acoustic

Mike played guitar most of the time, though he did play keys on Scared Straight and bass on Blue Diamonds (switching with Eric).

Totally! I especially liked the part where they played "Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand.

Er, wait. That might have been DJ Fucking In The Streets.

Either way.
