Two TV on the Radio Tickets for Sale

I screwed up my foot yesterday and am immobile. The show is tomorrow night at the 9:30 Club. Email me at brunchbird at yahoo dot com if you want my two tickets. $25 each, exactly what I paid. UPDATE, 12 p.m.: one left

Oh maaaaaaaan! That sucks it! I knew how much you were looking forward to that show, too.

Well, at least now if they take the stage at 11:55p you won't be fuming in the audience (you'll instead be fuming and pouting at home because you're not in the audience fuming).

Hope you're hopping along okay...

I'll enjoy the concert enough for both us, since they're so awesomely amazing live. Hope you feel better.

Thanks all. Yes, just the other day I was crowing about having the tickets. I suppose it's karma. I am very, very cranky about this development. Sigh, enjoy Barzelay...

They were supposed to start at 10:00pm, and they actually went on at 10:20pm, which is acceptable. They played for exactly an hour before leaving the stage for two or three minutes for a twenty minute encore.

It was a good show, but didn't get great until the encore. They started out with two songs that were not only not on their new album (i.e. the only album that most people have heard), but were not even the better songs from their previous album. That is always kind of annoying, but after that it picked up.

The encore featured every member of the band except the afro-having guitarist playing some percussion. Members of the opening band came out and hit things as well, and so did some roadies. It was great. During the encore they played "A Method," "Let The Devil In," something else, and "Staring At The Sun."

The coolest thing was that, during the first minute or so of "A Method," the white guy in the band took a drum and set it on the floor. He then poured about half a water bottle onto the drum head. Then when the loud drums in the song kick in, he beat the drum with huge mallets. It sent big fountains of water spraying upward with each beat. Very cool.

Sorry you couldn't go, but it certainly wasn't a mind-blowing show. It was just good.
