Music Was Here: Amanda, Rob Lanterman, Dalton Deschain, R O N I (or acoustic DIY actually exists?!?!)
l train-5 stops off Rockaway I think
We made it! It’s cold out.
Small crowd tonight
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!
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
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”
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)
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 thought everclear was the boozy vanguard
In seriousness that’s what this set is
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
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.
There was a girl in the city close to my hometown who did a lot of this loopback stuff.
It was cool
So far this is just dragging on a bit
Ah that took a minute
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.
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
I FIGURED OUT THE BAND THIS REMINDS ME OF.
You’re gonna hate me for this.
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.
