Tonight at the Ottobar: Xiu Xiu w/ other goofy acts. But Xiu Xiu is the reason to go. It is openly homosexual, electronic, somehow serious, artistic show that might really move you. I don't know if I'm gonna go because they won't go on until 12 - but I mean shit. I'm only young for so long.
This is my fave song of theirs: Clown Town
And here is their newer single - Boy Soprano: it's not bad.
And then Friday night you have the funniest lineup ever at the Ottobar. If you want to see the funniest, yet serious, yet jokingest show ever... check out Dan Deacon and Cex play Friday night. I've never seen so many pretentious people rock out with no lame fear. It will be fun I assure you - if you let yourself go.
This song actually gets a lot of play at MICA house parties I bet: That's his audience - that and the people who just HANG OUT at Sound Garden.
And here is Towson's finest: CEX. I saw Cex once open for...Doug was there. I can't even remember but I remember seeing him and then wanting to throw a brick at him until he took off his clothes and screamed "I'm from bmore motherfuckers!". I sort of let him slide and instead went to the bathroom. But from what I understand now he doesn't take himself too seriously anymore and is a much better performer.
Yeah I found a video of "throw a brick at him!" CEX. This is what that one show was like - I hope he doesn't rock this motif again.
