might be able to me people on Tuesday here

blindbryan720 2 points

I was actually thinking of going to that. I work at 5am during the week, but I might stay out late and go to the show. It looks really good. Plus Tuesday is my birthday, no better way to celebrate then a good show.

I personally fully support the occasional rough morning at work to enjoy a good show. I think it'll be an amazing show, so you've picked good one to check out!

Regardless, happy birthday!

To be clear, Mike does not play guitar on TTT. I cannot speak to the influence of that specific group, but Mike Kinsella is undoubtedly influential. The fact that there is a Chinese band named Chinese Football (a name they have said was a reference to the influence of American Football) that includes within their Bandcamp tags "midwest emo" speaks to the global influence of his music. Personally, I see the rise of emo within mathrock as something that is directly related to artists like AF and Owen.

While her actions are less than perfect, how is she the subject of this meme? He is the primary one at fault.

Sexist nonsense if you ask me.

Would it be "sexist nonsense" if it was a gay or lesbian couple?

frogvanexel 1 point

The fact is that it was not a gay or lesbian couple. It was a woman being blamed for her husband's problem.

oh sweet OP im moving to Raleigh and would love a cool mathrock venue to check out. will check out Nightlight

Like I said below, Nightlight is a place open to all sorts of acts. Ruby Deluxe has had some decent mathrock pass through.

Wat. What math bands have played nightlight?

frogvanexel 1 point

To clarify, Nightlight is a DIY venue that is open to all types of acts. If we are talking about things outside of DIY I would maybe include Ruby Deluxe.

Yes indeed! Most of us grew up with the 80s post punk/hardcore scenes. My first band was a hardcore band called The Oily Bloodmen. Kind of punk/funk before that was a thing...

That's a fantastic band name!

How does that evolution towards what was ultimately Tortoise occur? I realize that's maybe too deep of a question for this format, but still curious!

One of the perhaps only notable things about the Oily Bloodmen (I had left Portland by this point, so I cannot confirm this) is that Kurt and Courtney met at a Bloodmen show at the Satyricon back in the day.

Holy shit, seriously?! That is insane (and perhaps unfortunate)!
