..and I just can't hide it..
No comments necessary, just wanted to share my excitement!
I haven't been to a gig all year (high ticket prices, credit crunch, lack of anything I was absolutely dying to go to), but after a last minute cancelled appointment gave me an unexpected free afternoon today, I managed to get in some record shopping and enough time to surf the internet looking for nothing in particular.
I drifted towards the Load records website and found out that my (and other 'Spillers) beloved Lightning Bolt were finally coming back to Tokyo after the aborted attempt 2 years ago. I sprinted to the nearest convenience store to get tickets, only to be confronted with a "sold out" message. After scrambling around on the internet for a couple of hours looking for another ticket provider and another sprint to a different convenience store, I now hold in my grubby mitts a pair of tickets to Lightning Bolt in Shibuya on November 13th. Yay! The icing on this delectable cake? The mighty Guitar Wolf are supporting (GW and LB released a Japan-only split single at the time of the aborted tour 2 years ago). The cherry on top? The gig falls on my birthday! Woo-hoo!
p.s. the link with the video (apart from the fact that of being very excited) is that I saw Le Tigre play the same venue a few years ago and they opened with this number and I took a slash next to Ad Rock!
