Fuck Buttons @ The El Mocambo

This post is long overdue as this show happened November 23rd- my apologies internet. I’m sorry.

I kind of owe my buddy Tom for this one. He let me in on the non-secret that Fuck Buttons are bloody amazing a few months ago. Kinda ashamed that I hadn’t really found this one out previous to this fall. I wrote half of my NaNo novel with Tarot Sport as the soundtrack. We bonded that album and I. It’s definitely going to be my go-to disc when it comes time to ponder these past few months.

The opening band was Growing who were fantastic. I highly recommend giving them a listen.

Some photos:

Next up of course was Ben Power and Andy Hung- Les Fuck Buttons.
They did an epic run of the Tarot Sport tunes and ended with an encore of Sweet Love For Planet Earth from Street Horrrsing. *swoon*

Some photos- for the full set head over to my Concert section.

I think that this show is in my top 5 of all time, actually it probably grazes the top 3. I had three epic music moments. You know when you get chills up your spine- you just close your eyes and ahhh. Wow, I sound like a hippie. I just can’t put to words- just fantastic.

Here are some videos, pretty decent but they honestly don’t translate the feeling of standing in that room.

Surf Solar

Olympians

Sweet Love For Planet Earth

Drummin’ bit in Flight of the Feathered Serpent

And yes, got these suckers signed because I can’t stamp the fangirl out of me.

Out of some crazy … gawd knows what- I ended up in a pub drinking beers with these lovely fellows and two of the boys from Caribou while manhandling a jukebox ’til the wee hours of the morn. Further planting this evening as one of the more epic musical affairs I’ve had this year.

Faaaannnntastic.

    it was a sick show. I’m totally using my OG gameboy as an instrument from now on.
