    I may have jumped the gun on the MBE giveaway. Listening back to the podcast, they said "We have 5 copies for our members..." Guess I just assumed it would be signed since most of their album giveaways are for signed copies. However, I just got back from the listening party at Fingerprints in Long Beach. They played the LP in store and then had giveaways for everybody that bought the album there. There were only 7 or 8 of us that bought it and I won this lithograph. :D

    Scored LOGE 21 tickets to Boston. Now hopefully it works with my school schedule.

    Figured I would go for Boston because Portland is an all GA show and tickets shouldn't be hard to get.

    With service fees the pair was $112. GA was 59.50 and Seating was 49.50.

    Edited my above post with prices. Heard Boston pre-sale is sold out. Shouldn't be hard to get good seats during the regular onsale though.

  • not bad on prices- i still cant believe they're playing arenas though.

    and dont worry johnnyabruzzo - ive been clicking "try again" non stop since 10:02 :x

    Anyone who is going - Don't miss the Arctic Monkeys!! Ive seen The Black Keys before and they were far less than impressive. I was hoping to give them a chance to redeem themselves, while getting to see a band that i missed out on seeing at House of Blues. Arctic Monkeys are fucking awesome. study up and get in early!!

    Im officially giving up on the presale. Hope this helps :lol:

    I was gonna try to go to this show seeing as

    A) there new album is probably the most consistently good rock album ive heard from track to track in a long time.

    B) its free and nearby

    C) its on my birthday.


    but in order to have gotten the free tix, you had to go to the city. So i wasnt gonna risk paying a $12 toll to get one of 400 tix when I know how incredibly packed it would be for people doing the same. Then even if I did get free tix, I would have to go back home for class, then drive back and pay another $12 toll. (IM broke) free becomes $24

    I really wish there was a way to get em online.

    I actually made it into this show last night, got one of the free 400 tix from Southern Comfort. Awesome show, the guys sounded GREAT. Wrote a short recap when I got home.....

    Bought it this morning. Excellent album!

    Listened to it a few times. I think it was an obvious progression from Brothers. Not settled on it yet, the same happened with Brothers. But they do deserve the recognition.
    I'd love to see them go back to a stripped down, home recording duo but I know in order to progress they can't repeat themselves.

    Fantastic live band though. I'd advise everyone to see them.

    I got mine last night and listened to the first 7 tracks in the truck on the way to work this morning. I'm loving everything so far. As someone said previously it's a perfect driving album (so far at least). The standout track for me so far is Little Black Submarine.
    I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me.
