Do You Remember the First Time?

So I made it down to MisShapes on Saturday night for the big Pulp-fest with Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey, and it was one interesting party. After some cajoling at the door, I was finally let in (thank you door girl for telling door guy Thomas to let me in!) and proceeded to drink copious amounts of alcohol. Marcelo Gomez opened the evening and played some great post-punk and electro, including Joy Division and early New Order. Melody Nelson then played a killer set (Bloc Party's "Banquet" remix, Interpol's "Slow Hands" remix, a little Cure, a little Depeche Mode), probably the best I've seen from her, while warming up for the boys from Sheffield. So then Steve and Jarvis came on and the dance floor was packed - I mean, you couldn't move. They spun a lot of pyschadelic rock but threw in some random hits like M.C. Hammer's "Can't Touch This." It was a pretty crazy night. I never had the chance to see Pulp, so it was cool seeing Jarvis and Steve up close.

Saw Matt of the Go Station play an acoustic set at Pianos after the Super Bowl. He was great - threw out some Go Station tunes and did a cover of Oasis' "Talk Tonight." It was a good, "intimate" set.
