saw the crystal method about 2 or 3 weeks ago, attending
two fingers (amon tobin alias) at the end of july. hoping to
fit more shows in this summer if anything comes around that
i like; hell, i think last electronic show i went to before
that was autechre a few years back

bush was headlining, chevelle was co-headlining, and
"filter" featuring richard patrick formed whatever's below
that -- so that makes it electronic, ok?

bush was professional. obviously played machine head. i
obviously hung out at the bar.

chevelle, the two friends i went with notice people crowd
surfing and discuss joining. my response is, "oh, go on, i'd
just fuck it up and lose my glasses" and i still believe
that is exactly what would have happened if i'd tried.
they'll manage it, though. they do, though i think there
were some small lacerations and bruises

then it's filter's turn. richard patrick gets up with his
band, a power guitar, and a power drill. he says, "hey,
boston! have you ever seen this before?" and puts his power
drill on his power guitar for some power drones.

i think: "why, yes, richard, i have. this guy i chatted with
on ICQ ten years ago was the first person i heard do that,
and i've since discovered that lots of other people have
done it way earlier than that." heck -- last week, i found
out that dave navarrao used a vibrator on his guitar for
some of the tracks on "one hot minute."

he plays a number of songs i don't remember -- i was
somewhat drunk, by now -- then his version of "trip like i
do," and of course, "hey man nice shot."

then, to my horror, he showed up down the end of the bar a
few minutes later. he was being all "i'm richard patrick,
isn't that cool?" and some people were into it, and some
people were clearly not. he crept closer and closer, and i
prayed he wouldn't actually reach me and attempt to
communicate. "was the power drill cool or what?" he'd say.
then i'd throw my drink in his face

mercifully, he acquired enough fan attention that his rate
of travel down the bar dwindled, and stopped. then my
buddies returned from the merch table and we made a hasty

i think that was also the night i snapped a truly epic photo
of one of those guys passed out on the hardwood living room
floor next to my vinyl collection

i guess i saw squarepusher on his ufabulum tour too. or,
well, i saw a lot of light patterns, it was very hard to
actually see squarepusher

no, no, the photo was right after that concert. it's
timestamped Sun 16 Oct 2011 03∶37∶36 AM EDT, and
buchevilter played Boston Oct 15, 2011. those just looked
like andrew's legs, and i don't think andrew was with us for
that? but perhaps it was the other guy's legs; i didn't
exactly keep detailed records

but, yes, shut up epicmegatrax! you told a decent story! the
photo was funny! stop trying to be accurate

i'll just see myself out for the night.

I honestly don't remember. Something at the Mutek or Elektra
festivals, something so abstract it almost didn't exist, and
all I could focus on was the austere concrete floor the
audience was invited to sit or stand on and suffer. Maybe
that pain was the real art, and the sound and visuals were a
