across the narrows coney island wrap up

it's too much to even think about writing, so here are a few observations from Across the Narrows this weekend:

Rilo Kiley are very good live.

Jenny Lewis is a ham.

Built to Spill are also very good live.

Built to Spill played "
while my guitar gently weeps" very nicely.

Built to Spill do not like the current administration.

Vinnie Jones's physical and spiritual doppelganger is the lead singer of Gang of Four.

Gang of Four do not like microwaves.

Kim Deal can play bass with a cigarette in her hand.

The Pixies will never play "dig for fire".

There was a lot of eighties nostalgia in Coney Island this weekend.

Eighties nostalgia needs to stop asap.

Dragonette wear white suits.

Except for the drummer, who wears a t-shirt that says "Dragonette" on it.

White suits make me dislike you.

Dragonette's music is still pretty catchy.

The Ravonettes were very tired.

The Polyphonic Spree are creepy.

Nothing and no one will convince me otherwise.

The Polyphonic Spree do, however, use a theremin and blow bubbles.

But all the ladies in the group have the same haircut.

Belle & Sebastian are twee and I love every minute of it.

I still know all the words to "Loser".

Beck does, in fact, still play "Loser".

Sometimes right after I ask my friend if he ever plays it.

Beck has a band that can play glasses.

The people like dancing to the Beck.

Beer is not overpriced at Keyspan Park.
