Mountain Goats









I slept for a few hours. I met Pat for coffee. I tried to print out some of my novel. I met Pat and Kristy for sushi. There are a lot of sushi places in SF. They were going to see Blondie at the fillmore. I ran into Jessie and we went to the Castro. Saw Mathew Lindsay, and gave him a book. Came back home. I met Brooke for this Martha Wainwright party. It was crowded and there was free alcohol. It was like a downtown loft hanging with a bunch of people who work for ILD. We bailed, and I went to see Mountain Goats at Swedish Hall. He played solo. It was packed and there were some super fans. You know, those Dashboard Confessional fans who sing along to every song and sit in the front row. There was free wine and many people were fucked up. I was tired and I got home again early.

Antony and The Johnsons @ Nob Hill Masonic



Holy shit! It was great. Many people saw Antony last year with the orchestra. This year it is him with the band. In San Francisco, it seems just right. Antony used to live here and beg for money in Union Square. He was anecdotal. He apologized to people sitting behind him. The band was great. They went through old and new songs. Some of the new songs sounded better live. A surprise was that William Basinski opened up the show. He did about a half hour of ambient noise.

He played:

a new song?
Her Eyes Are Underneath The Ground
Epilepsy Is Dancing
One Dove
For Today I Am A Boy
Another World
Shake That Dog
You Are My Sister
Fistful of Love
Kiss My Name
Aeon
The Crying Light

+ 3 more

Some drunk guy got thrown out after two songs. It was wild. I left and went to Mezzanine to see Deerhunter. I hung out with Mark Eitzel, and we went to a bar in the Mission. Eitzel is playing a show with Bob Mould on Satuday.
