a log of cd's purchased + shows attended + other stuff.
stars @ le national

i went to the show last night with roxanne. while waiting for the show to start, we met a couple of high school girls; one of them is ten years younger than me. looking around, i realized that we were surrounded by fifteen-year-olds. it was the first time i felt so old at a show...!

pony up were the openers. typical indie pop-rock. nothing too special; it was an alright performance.

stars were next. they had a nicely decorated set: some framed drawings, and lots of flowers that they occasionally threw into the audience. the band themselves were well dressed; amy millan wore some bitchin' four-inch heels, and managed to rock out gracefully.

the music was good, not straying far from their sound on disc. they played all my favourite songs, namely "what i'm trying to say" and "take me to the riot", as well as "personal". on a particular song that i do not like as much, "the ghost of genova heights", they kept things interesting by turning off the lights, and torquil campbell emerged wearing a jacket full of lights; pretty.

roxanne got a copy of the setlist:
- take me to the riot
- set yourself on fire
- elevator love letter
- the ghost of genova heights
- bitches in tokyo
- one more night
- personal
- look up
- midnight coward
- window bird
- soft revolution
- sleep tonight
- reunion
- your ex-lover is dead
- ageless beauty
- in our bedroom after the war

- the night starts here
- my favourite book
- what i'm trying to say
- calendar girl
- on peak hill
