Never been to the Tractor...

Is this a venue that dictates an early arrival due to the size? Are there tickets to be bought ahead of time?

Or should I be okay rolling up a half hour before 'game time'???

i have been to the tractor tavern before, its a cool venue. there i saw john roderick, we stood next to each other at the show during opening acts, and talked abit. i got my pic taken with sean, he said bye to me when he was leaving. other than that, he avoided me like the black plague.

i wish i could go, i was so pissy near bumbershooot, i missed it. i know there will be more shows, so im not tooupset.

i get to see the chili peppers, ive got ga!! it cost 40 bucks. (92 for 2 tickets)

i started college this week, all went according to plan, but i could kick the bus driver in the nads for what he did, i was supposed to catch the 7evergreen home, i and others got on "7 evergreen" then like a bit into the ride he changes the bus name, we had to all get off and catch someother bus.

im abit scaredabou t tomorrow, my class gets out at 650 and theres only one bus left if i get on the wrong bus ill cry.

i've been there a few times. it will probably end up looking just like you might think. kind of "countryish". i wouldn't worry about getting in. i'll probably be there around 9:30ish and i'm not worried. altho now you guys are making me a tad worried. thanks a lot! ;)

a review

Post by Karousme »

I hope everyone got in. I showed up at 9:45... after getting lost somewhere in Magnolia, and still managed to get in.

For those who missed the show....it was great. Centromatic was excellent, and so was TLW. They pretty much played everything you'd expect them to play, as well as Blanket Hog, which was ... interesting, but good nonetheless.

They closed with a two song encore, which included Scent of Lime and fast Mimi.

The banter was excellent as usual, and covered topics like:
-homosexuality
-Van Halen
-polo shirts (salmon colored)
-tall people (they rock harder)
-chop coppers
-sweaty towels
-John's un-athleticism

Feel free to add some more, I'm sure I am missing a ton.

I was lucky enough to be close to the stage. I was one of the so-called 'chop coppers' up front with the yellow/green hat.

What are your thoughts on the show?

we were there at 9:30ish, just like i said. :)

um...we didn't care for centromatic. next!

he is right. the set was great. amazing. i loved that it was longer than usual since there were only the 2 bands. i really enjoyed the "new" version of blanket hog.
i was a little upset about the tall people rock harder comment. i'm short, i rock like no one else i tell ya!

dude...i'm pretty sure i stood next to you for most of the set. was that hat on backwards?

Yes I was sporting my hat backwards style. I'm not usually a "hat" guy but when my hair gets long I need it to keep the hair out of my eyes!

Hey did anyone else see Dave Bazan at the show?

Their shows just really make me feel good. I love this band.

It was a great show last night - I loved their set, the levels were better than expected, and the banter was classic!

Especially hysterical was when Sean called John a queen after he tried to diffuse some of the 'homo tension' with a theater reference! Hahaha!

I like that even with their rising popularity, they're still playing club venues. Afterwards I was lamenting their eventual growth into venues so sizeable that banter with an audience might not happen, or that they wouldn't meet with the crowd before/after the shows...these are things I really appreciate.

Guys if you read this - honestly, sincerely, truly - no matter what happens down the road: Thank you for these times right now.

they played their instruments...

Post by emc »

Scared Straight
Shapes
Cinnamon w/ Cinamon Girl interlude rock out jam
Bride and Bridle
Blanket Hog (first time in seattle, or did they play it on sonic boom tour)
It’ll Be a Breeze
Stupid
Prom Night at Hater High
New Girl
Nora f/ fiddle player from centromatic
carparts
mimi (remix)
medicine cabinet pirate
scent of lime
unsalted butter

these are completely out of order played. they did not play that song on mtv.

there might have been one more lw song, plus they played a cover which eclipsed my musical knowledge. the band was from denton, tx, probably not death metal.

Oooooh (legs go wobbly, stomach a little queezy, eyes misty), mildly jealous...

Well, obviously that's not going to happen in Europe, but then please do let them play Blanket Hog. I would love to hear that! Wow.

They played it at the Fremont store, which was the accoustic John/Sean duo set, but without the "big violent coda" at the end. My question is, this time did they play it as a full band? God, I hope they play Nora at the Spokane show...

Man, I thought about requesting it when they were in Europe in August, but thought I would just make a fool out of myself because they never would. How stupid am I for not trying?

ZING. Also: LOVE.
Uncannily enough, I was in the middle of listening to All Hail West Texas when I read this. I do declare: today is a very Mountain Goats day.
