Music Was Here: Amanda, Rob Lanterman, Dalton Deschain, R O N I (or acoustic DIY actually exists?!?!)

up&running!

l train-5 stops off Rockaway I think

We made it! It’s cold out.

Small crowd tonight


Shut up.

Definitely less raucous than the last time we were here I’m gonna expect

Cold is enough

Fuck man we missed happy hour. My bad for being slow and DISTRACTED BY EVERYTHING before we left

“Solo night at the lodge”

Amanda on first. She seemed nice, and I’m excited to see what it’s like.

And good for her, her friends just showed up!

Always important

This feels like the kind of show where instead of standing, we should all be sitting on the floor.

Definitely a departure from the shows we usually go to.

::mental note to approach with open mind::

I like acoustic shows like this. They’re relaxing

Catchy britpop intro here.

Also funny how the audience all tends to crowd in one spot

Ah yes human dynamics at work

Cool visuals behind her btw

It’s so beautifully diy

I’m always about that. In a city like this and times like these where everything is getting rinsed grey by ironically “aesthetic” monoculture, gotta preserve DIY anything at all costs

DIY got bought up

I know

Well, save for the few bastions of it I guess

That last song I could imagine getting into

I think this is the kind of music that just works better acoustic than full band.

Or semi-acoustic with a band would work.

Agree. This would be kinda bleh fully electric, yea

“this is a song written by someone else… so that’s called a cover”

spittin facts

I don’t think I know this song though

Know of it, but never got into Weezer

Okay you’re further than me, I wouldn’t even recognize it’s Weezer.

(also says a lot about how much I know about Weezer or care for that band)

“the workers have omicron”

Alright that made this set for me

I’m realizing more and more with music, I don’t care about it being perfect or conventially good, I just want it to be fun

Rob’s solo stuff is actually… good

I think I just like my music to make me feel something, regardless of it’s fashionability…hence my tripling down on the stuff I already like (hence orgcore, skramz and nu)

Really good. Damn

“how to setlist oops” – probably rob writing his setlist on his arm

They way all bands should do if they can’t write setlists on pizza boxes or PBR boxes, frankly

Step y’all games up fam

This cover is great, though one of my least favorite Propagandhi songs (refusing to be a man)

Ahhhh

Rob’s stage banter 🔥

Okay so this acoustic Shrug Dealer song works, the same way acoustic Propagandhi songs always surprise me on how well they work

Def not in-crowd enough to understand this empty beer can throwing.

We gotta get our shit together just so we could play like 3.5 shows and call it a day after getting showered in steel reserve empties

You mean you need to get your shit together. My drum and guitar skills are good enough for really terrible songs, which means I know all the basics and nothing more for both

Yes, we is me in this instance haha. I’ll cop fault here

It’s weird, the vibe changed since that empty beer can throwing happened.

Even if it was an inside joke, it didn’t have a good effect

L for the in crowd as always

I think this is also a bit too much of a hip crowd for me. Like… the kind of people who really like themselves and are wary of outsiders

I’d been meaning to work towards this point but that’s been hella evident from the jump. I don’t do particularly well once I’ve sniffed that vibe out…

Eh, still fun.

I hope our friend is okay, he got a “op Ivy reunited” message and then his friend stopped responding.

Also I’ve got no clue how much of that is real so don’t take any credibility from my words

He freaked and told me the same.

UPDATE: our fren is back; no need to inform the authorities

🤣

Dalton Deschain up now. This is fun

Though this song is taking a long time, unless this entire set is storytelling through song, it’s too long for my patience

Not bad. Could get into this

Wait this song is about the Mothman

Gotta chat up my WV friend about the mothman haha

“I take a shot of nitroglycerin”

I’m really only paying half attention but wait what

I also heard DDT.

Guess MDH needs to step up its alcoholism

Oh, this is a storytelling horror set but with songs.

I think?

I thought everclear was the boozy vanguard

In seriousness that’s what this set is

spoopy

Not gonna lie, gore has never been so catchy

The world needs an Edgar Allan Poe folk act. Maybe it’s this dude

Okay this is actually really good. I’m not usually a fan of the concept, but I absolutely get why people love the idea of those story telling records and shows. He pulls it off well, the song stories and banter paints a picture and… It’s good.

Not for me, but it’s recommended for those who like this thing

I feel like this is a murder mystery podcast but with a dope(ish) soundtrack

r/nosleep but set to music

Aha

Horror punk had been around forever, I know.

Never got into it. I think I never got into horror at all. It just hasn’t been something for me.

Idk, day to day life is slow motion horror enough. Never felt I needed a whole subgenre devoted to it haha

I mean, I like horror and the supernatural to an extent. Like stories, and good movies (fuck gore or jumpscares), but it’s never been something I look for. I just don’t mind it when it happens on my path.

Anyway, I’d probably 1000% go to a show that’s just musical stories. Song – story – song.

I’ve never been cool enough for the nerds.

Join the line

Hey, Dalton, I also wish my friends weren’t that sad all of the time.

This really makes me want to sing-along and I don’t know the words.

sadicron 2022

Beer?

There was a girl in the city close to my hometown who did a lot of this loopback stuff.

It was cool

Ooh

So far this is just dragging on a bit

Ah that took a minute

minute(s)

Or ten.

I’m not sure how I feel about this yet.

The music is very storytelling and her voice is amazing

Feels like needing a very narrow, tight runway as far as being in a specific mood for what I think she’s getting at (so far)

This is really, really good musically. Also really needs a specific mood

Both of that’s true. I think I’m winding down a bit mentally

Okay this song is more not my thing. Still really good but closer to “eh I know why people love this but it’s not angry enough for me”

Girl has some style though.

She is really, really talented. Absofrigginlutely.

When I said “this is a people sitting on the floor” show I really didn’t mean “two people are sitting in such a way they’re blocking 25% of the space”

But of course that’s what happened

Haha I am actually pissed at them not moving the hell up and sitting nearer to the front

Third person sitting does that.

Beer?

If you wanna know where my energies are I just held my beer backwards in order to take a swig

I was so right with this “sitting on floor” show though

Yeah haha you were

We shoulda started it haha

THAT’S IT

I FIGURED OUT THE BAND THIS REMINDS ME OF.

You’re gonna hate me for this.

It’s Placebo

Ha! That is actually in the realm. Would love to see with full band

Okay it’s not just me? I was afraid I just made a very out there take.

Obligatory lulz at placebo being on fuckin rise records

But they probably got the bag and then some 💰

Like I said, DIY is a grift.
