Post XMas Gifts for Myself: Kickass Concerts

December 28th, 2010 Comments off

Just downloaded my tickets for two upcoming concerts that should rock it all out.

First, on January 19, I’m going to see a redux of the Fitz and the Tantrums concert that blew me away last year (review here).  This time they’re playing the Bowery Ballroom for the steal price of $18 a seat, general admission. Tickets here.

Just a week later, I’ve bought my seats for White Lies on the secondary market.  The show has been sold out for a bit, so it remains to be seen what price the seats will bear, but I got them for about $30 a pop, general admission.  They’re playing the Highline Ballroom on January 27.  Tickets here.

If you don’t yet own them, I highly recommend Fitz‘ album Pickin’ Up The Pieces and White LiesTo Lose My Life ….  Additionally, White Lies‘ new album Ritual is set to release in three weeks, with the first single available for free download here.

Kudos to YouTube’s keesvdijkhuizen who posted this awesome compilation.  Plus, it doesn’t hurt that they rock out to White Lies’ “Death.”

Love the bridge on this song. White Lies is, if you hadn’t been able to tell, one of my favorite bands. This is Farewell to the Fairground.

Music: White Lies – To Lose My Life Medley

November 13th, 2009 Comments off

Below linked is the medley music video from White Lies promoting their album To Lose My Life, which you can buy from Amazon here or on iTunes. Although my favorite band remains Air Traffic, WL is fast catching them.

They’ve been touring with Kings of Leon and are sort of a prepubescent arena rock band. I think if you mixed KOL with the Killers and through in a little Bowie you’d get White Lies. I’m dying to see them live but my tickets fell through when they were last in New York. Their entire album is fantastic and really flows through together.

The video below gives a great overview of their entire album and is chilling in a sort of Pink Floyd meets indie rock kind of way. The album itself is fantastic. I’m not sure I have any particular track that stands out, because it’s the type of album that flows together organically and really ought not be segmented (though a couple of tracks are on my iPod shuffle for working out).

The album qualifies as a must own.
