Hey ya’ll, I’m currently in Vancouver with my siblings and we’re seeing Godspeed You! Black Emperor on June 4th and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard on the 5th. I’m super looking forward to it and hope King Gizz play Han-Tyumi.
Any of you doing anything similar? Share it here!
UPDATE: That. Was. The most incredible shit.
I haven’t been listening Godspeed for too long, so I couldn’t pick up too many individual cues, but I was still ascendant the whole damn time. Capitalism is disease. Death to fascism. That is all.
King Gizz is the best thing I’ve ever experienced. My pants fell down, twice and somebody pulled them back up the first time, which is the ultimate bro move. Friendliest mosh ever. Also snagged my fave album of theirs, Paper Mache Dream Balloon (As well as copies of Can’s Future Days, Murder of the Universe and Luciferean Towers earlier in the week). Song of the night was Digital Black/Vomit Coffin, but if only they’d played Road Train or Great Chain of Being! 5/5, would transcend universe again.
P.S. To make my travelogue video game related, I went to the EXP bar, got a new Street Fighter and Smash main, Gouken and R.O.B
