When You Sleep

I received notice today that My Bloody Valentine will be in Chicago on September 27th. I thought the day would never come! There had been talks of a fourth album to follow-up their masterpiece Loveless, but we only received snippets of solo and non-MBV material as well as front man Kevin Shield's various collaborations. He contributed to the soundtrack for the movie "Lost in Translation", which for me was the only thing I liked about the movie, but I digress. The original MBV members will be in Chicago! Feedback be upon me!

I find nothing wrong with my plan to buy tickets to this show as well as the NKOTB show* when they go on sale this Saturday. It's like my 14 year old and 11 year old selves deciding that it's okay to wear big buttons with Joey McIntyre's picture while also brooding around in my Doc Martins.

* that purchase has already been made thanks to BFF's access to internet presale. We opted for mid-level tickets, close enough to be a part of the action, but far enough away to prevent any rushing of the stage by moi to molest Joey.

I'm really jealous of the My Bloody Valentine show and a tiny bit jealous of the NKOTB show. Are you wearing overalls and teasing your hair?

Sorry I won't be going to MBV... I was lucky to see them on the Loveless Tour (with Yo La Tengo & Buffalo Tom). If they are half as good as back then you'll have the time of your life. Bring ear plugs... they were the loudest band I have ever seen.

Classy's summer jams and cross-town classic discs are getting mad play in my ride right now, years later.
