Live: A heavy concert week, with Joan Jett and the Who, Ed Sheeran, and Christines, Sayak and the awesome The Gotobeds leading a jam packed week of gigs. No major disappointments and the Gotobeds was exactly what you hoped they were.
the 30 minute set was a brimming with smarts, fast loud with prog rock influences and a smirk on their face joy, and way too friendly not to make friends and way too funny not to be adored and way way way too exciting not be loved.
I’m going, though it is gonna be a long night (looks like till midnight), I’ve wanted to catch the band for months now and finally I don’t have to go to fucking Brooklyn. I’ve haven’t been to a club.. oh wait, I went last week. Anyway, I’m still going
I regret missing the Getotbeds last week, their current album Poor People Are Revolting is as clever as its title. Otherwise in a quiet week, Simple Minds still bring it, the Cat Stevens was an outlier on the blues album, the new Ezra is a doozy, and the new Mary J is like finding a Sam Smith song from his new album you didn’t know existed.
Sure “Blank Space” is the best song of this year, last year and probably next year but lets take a second to namecheck Pittsburgh’s finest the Gotobeds, whose “New York’s Alright (If You Like Sex And Phones)” is as good as its name, hell it’s as good as its first line.
