That is right boys and girls, no play list this week because I was too busy being awesome in Van City. Now, why was I in Vancouver last week? To see Radiohead of course!

Great show, wicked crowd. It poured, all night, which only served to make the show better. Thom Yorke barley spoke (and when he did, it was charming as hell) and the rest of the band spoke not at all. I missed most of The Liars, but they were pretty rad from what I saw. Really, nothing I can say will convey the absolute greatness that the show was so I will end it here. Check out the setlist…the end, very last song, Thom/Radiohead gave the audience a choice between Paranoid Android or Idioteque. I guess there were a lot of OK Computer fans in the audience as Paranoid Android won right out. That’s ok, it fit the show and it just means I must see Radiohead again to get to dance to Idioteque.

More bragging rights’s:

Cute couple, right?

Cute couple, right?

After the after party...

After the after party...

That’s right, me and the members of Of Montreal kickin’ it at Sled Island. One more amazing perk of fesitval goodness.

This is my playlist. More importantly, I am so stoked to go to Van City and see RADIOHEAD!!! CAPS LOKS ON THE REST OF THE SHOW! If you’re a vancouverite feel free to holla at me and we should hook up! Well, you know what I mean, meet up, not hook up….oh jeez…this is awkward.

Todays show is on in T minus 3 hours and 9 minutes. After missing last weeks show I am jonesing for some good radio time.

Sadly my plans on going to the Sasquatch music festival have been rained on and forced to recede faster than the Germans did from the Russian front line so tonight’s show will feature all the artists I wish I was seeing in the next couple days. Be ready for some awesome music and a mopey host.

To prepare for your conflicted radio future, heres a little tidbit I picked up from Sterogum. Starbucks is putting out yet another compilation for the coffee lover, this time a whole latte of Sonic Youth. (sorry, that was pretty bad….blame my Sasquatch despair…). Anyways, click on the link to check more…

I recently counted myself as a Starbucks employee and I have come to believe the company releases these somewhat awesome comp’s and carry good music as much for the employee’s benefit as the customers. There is only so many times you can hear Alicia Keys before wanting to just put your ear to the blender….Really, Starbucks carrying Radiohead and Sonic Youth is a straight up blessing for us lowly Batista’s.

Moral of the story: Starbucks patrons – feel free to request awesome music any time you want!

Stay tuned for this weeks playlist.
