A Covert Oh Land Concert Review!


My friend Alyssa recently saw my old love Oh Land during her residency in New York. I wish I could have been there, as tickets were cheap, but I live far away.

Alyssa (and others) had rave reviews about the shows. Here is a brief Facebook chat discussing Alyssa's specific experience:


so how was the venue

i've been to rockwood several times. it's a great spot, as far as space and design. very intimate. drink prices are pretty typical for the lower east side - not completely ridiculous, and sound quality is great. my only complaint about the venue is that i've often experienced a really obnoxious crowd.

was this crowd obnoxious?

for the most part, everyone there was definitely there excited to see oh land, but per my usual experience, there were a few girls who talked obnoxiously loud throughout the whole show.

how was the opener
and then how was oh land and feel free to use every word in the english language

there was no opener. just nanna and her boys. the show was really, really great. i was really impressed by her live performance. she was funny (and charming) as hell, and all in all she really exceeded my expectations. she is ridiculously attractive, and endearing, and all that jazz, and is definitely talented. oh, and she had some friends playing brass that really made the show. think: a more attractive and more upbeat lana del rey that actually delivers live. she definitely lives up to her recent hype.

i'm jealous dude
she's amazinggggggggg

it was really incredible.
best track of the night for me? wolf and i. TORE IT UP. banging on her drum, her voice, the band. gah.
she's got a few more scheduled. definitely going again.


she also played a lot of songs that are unreleased. and i liked that. a lot.

is she doing a new album soon
do we know

she kind of giggled about that, how she was hoping to get songs recorded and wished she could say it'd be next week, but that she probably won't have anything out in the immediate future.

dammit nanna

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!
