February Consumption

Despite writing off my cultural consumption in February in my previous post, there are some things I took in, now that I think about it.

  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt double-header (Premium Rush and Looper)
  • Sockets showcase at Black Cat
  • My Bloody Valentine, m b v*
  • Tom Wolfe, Back to Blood
  • Foul Swoops, Roomrunner, and Parquet Courts at Black Cat
  • Waxahatchee, Cerulean Salt
  • Elliot Perlman, Seven Types of Ambiguity

*This came out the night of the Sockets showcase. I like My Bloody Valentine but was more into, like, Ride. I had no desire to sit at my computer and watch the band’s website crash as people tried to download the album, so I went out and I’m glad I did: Hume, a band I have never particularly been stoked on, played a set that ripped a new hole in the universe. I suppose it was just as well that it was their last show.
