because the LA Times has slightly different rules than the busblog (ok very different rules), there were some shows where i only shot 30-40 seconds of video, because thats all that we can use on our blogs there in regards to live concerts.
i know everyone will say well fuck tony whats the point then?
and i would normally agree, but i would also say that one can write about how a young woman was running around writhing in seeming pain, and you can even have a photo or twelve of her doing it,
but to have even 36 seconds of video sometimes tells the story way better than words or photos or even etch-a-sketchess could provide.
thus here are some words, pics, and a quick video of Be Your Own Pet vs J. Mascis vs Thurston Moore and the New Wave Bandits at the mohawk stage friday at sxsw, a show i was lucky enough to see with whitney of usa today and ken basart of dan grant for congress
