I actually got my shit together & went out tonight... it was touch & go there for a bit, as I really thought the couch might have been calling my name -- but eventually my craving for live music got the best of me & I made it down to Southpaw in time to see Dirty on Purpose & The Caulfield Sisters. SO glad i did. And it's not just because I got to hang all night with Jinners or because Jasper, being the sweetheart that he is, promptly presented me with a drink ticket when I strolled in. Instead, may I refer you once more to Ashley's mantra that I've usurped as of late? "It's ALL about the MUSIC".
DoP, whom, as you may recall, I've seen on several occasions at Sin-e, has grown just tremendously since last i saw them. Simply a fantastic set. So much tighter, stronger backing vocals... color me impressed. I'm psyched to see them again tomorrow night at the Asobi Seksu's cd release shindig. Should be good times folks, GOOD times. The Caulfield sisters once again offered up a most compelling set. Could just be me, but I really think there's something bold about a three piece chick ensemble who can get down with a mean accordion. Seriously... that Candy song? so catchy. Plus their lyrics are infinitely relate-able, and I just worship Cindy Wheeler's baby blue guitar. If I ever grow up & learn how to play the guitar, I want one just like hers. Plus, and I think I may have already mentioned this, but there is definitely a Tanya Donnelly thing going on with her & that's ALWAYS a good thing as far as I'm concerned.

Most hysterical thing to happen to me all night? Some girl from Gigantic Records thought I was Miss Melodynelson herself. LOL. It was truly brilliant. I think this solidifies my sneaking suspicion that somewhere over the last year I have officially become a scenester. But as Matt GoStation so eloquently put it, I am still "the best kind of scenester... the kind that doesn't live in the scene." All I can say is I hope to live up to this new scenester status... but seeing as I'm sleepy now, I think I'll forgo any more public appearances until tomorrow's soiree.
