Concert's Corner: Concert Log #1

Occasional Concert Logs, Reviews, Videos, MP3s, gifs, and anything else that fuels my addiction.

Concert Log #1:

Who: Brendan Benson and the Posies
Where: Club Nokia in Los Angeles
When: Friday, December 3rd, 2010
Notes:
Brendan Benson (also known as "the other singer in the Raconteurs") put on a great show to a mostly empty house (350 people / 2300 capacity). He would have been better served playing a more intimate venue.
I've been a fan of Brendan Benson since I first downloaded "Cold Hands, Warm Heart" from Stereogum way back in 2005. He has knack for writing great Power Pop Songs that hook you in, lodge themselves in your brain and get stuck for days.

Enjoy Garbage Day from his latest Album My Old Familiar Friend.




I have to admit to not really knowing much of anything about the Posies. I never got around to looking them up prior to the show and was pleasantly surprised by the fact that I didn't hate their music.

In Conclusion, we should all be so lucky to find something in this world we enjoy as much as this guy enjoyed the Posies.



Next Week: A Super Indie Xmas. Be prepared for some Yacht Rock vs. Coppola Soundtrack Band Reviews and maybe some emo fashion tips from the tweens I'm sure to be outnumbered by.

  1. "Frosting on the Beater" by the Posies is a really great record. "I Could Dream All Day" is about as perfect a song as can be. I am being hyperbolic, but I just really love that song.
