I would love to see this. Any word on openers? I'm really busy at work today and don't have time to look.

BTW, the gig closest to me is the last date on the tour (Detroit). That's a tasty possibility because if I were to go it would mean a trip to the poker room at MGM afterward, most likely.


EDIT: Aw, fuck it. That's a Tuesday night. No can do - my wife works Tuesday nights and I watch the kids. The two shows in Chicago are on the weekend - maybe that could work out. Perhaps I can convince her to go visit her family in Northwest Indiana and accompany me to the show. We'll see.

I actually have a tape from this band, but I can't find it anywhere to listen to online nor do I have a tape player.

They play instrumental post-rock using a lot of unique instrumentation such as strings (violin and cello) and samples and such. They are a large group (membership runs around eight or nine people at any given time, plus or minus a few), and they tend to use a lot of graphic art in their live performences. I guess you could say they are somewhat like Neurosis, only a whole lot mellower and more orchestral. Their music sounds a lot like soundtrack music, and in fact one of their songs was used in the movie "28 Days Later" (although it was pretty heavily modified for the movie soundtrack).

They're not for everybody - that's for sure - but I think they'd be amazing to see live.
