Last night, 7:00 P.M. at Triple Rock in Minneapolis. Preceeded by Neglected Receptors (C+/B-) and Yellow Swans (B/B+). Xiu Xiu themselves were A+, fer sher. Took advantage of the intimate setting and small (<100) crowd to delve into some of the sublter stuff, which worked really well. An' snagged a very nice silkscreened show/venue poster. Followed by a massive Mexican dinner and four and a half hours of driving. Aces. :p

I keep seeing them described as "Gay-fronted band Xiu Xiu" when I do intrabutt searches for 'em. Surprisingly few of these articles actually say anything about the music.

I saw the Legendary Shack Shakers at the 400 Bar last night. They kicked some serious ass.

The Onion said it sounds like he's sucking off the microphone.

if it was an A+ does that mean they didn't play any material off of La Foret.

It's Jakeass! He stuck a horse's head on his shoulders and people told him where to go around town and what to do, and he took pictures
