A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/11/19 9:46am Kevin_Ringwood_ UK:

Phillippe, there are certainly local accents among some bird populations. I've heard differences in the Song Thrush and Blackbird in different parts of the country

Also for eclectic, although he's not on the current schedule, there's Bob Brainen.

As I get older I find my musical tastes have broadened enormously and that's why I wish I'd found WFMU sooner.

Even the shuffle-mode songs on the streams (Ichiban, Drummer Some, Sheena) is pretty darn entertaining and eclectic. But the actual hosted shows also up the eclecticism.

@melinda and dc pat - I'm with you. I'm close to 30 years in with going to shows. As more time goes by, I mainly seek out shows that are affordable and in intimate spaces. Non traditional venues are the best - record shops, art galleries, etc.

@ Phillippe Bastille, one of the beautiful things about wfmu is sharing some tastes with some and not with others and feeling our tastes change! For me the overlapping multi track collage in the blind tourist is really relaxing, but also has something to do with listening to it right after work when I want to just pause and rest my mind, as for Hearty White, haha I think he strikes a spiritual chord in my searching heart from time to time, but for months I couldnt listen to him and then one evening when I was feeling down he really got to me.
Avatar Thu. 4/11/19 11:03am đ¢ ÞäŦ:

I have a friend that only goes to see the same 20 or so groups who seem to get more and more popular. So the venues get bigger and more pricey. I keep going smaller and smaller.. Flesh Eaters was the biggest show I've seen in years..

that's what I'm talking bout, melinda and Devin! @Devin, was that show recently in Seattle?

Yeah, Tim. In Rat City.

Heard Roscoe Mitchell at a house concert a few weekends back, at which I met Lester Bowie's widow.

There's a couple artists I really want to see who I haven't yet like Neil Young and Nick Cave. At this point, they keep playing bigger places at prices that are way out of my range.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/11/19 11:13am tim from champaign:

@Devin - I really want to check that space out. I'm outside Tacoma.
Avatar Thu. 4/11/19 11:14am đ¢ ÞäŦ:

Well Nick Cave is probably worth it and I'd pay some good dough to see Tom Waits. I saw Cave about 20 years ago when it was already expensive and totally worth it. There are exceptions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/11/19 11:15am Devin B.:

@Tim: It'd be worth the drive for the right line up. Do they still do shows at the Java Jive?
Avatar Thu. 4/11/19 11:15am βrian:

@TFC: That seems to be the case for John Prine, too. I saw him in small venues, or for free, at a festival.

Someone typed "Ken from Hype Park" above and I really like that. I'm going to call KfHP "Ken from Hype Park" from now on.

Cave IS a great show. But I passed on shelling out the dough on his last tour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/11/19 11:19am tim from champaign:

@Devin - I'll have to look into it. I'm relatively new to the area. Tacoma is pretty rad. There's a newish record and vintage shop called Jankuland in Tacoma that does DIY shows that are cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 4/11/19 11:21am Planet Tyler:

Love this Bobby Oraza. First heard it on WFMU. Nice little record label too.

@Tim: Sounds rad. I grew up around here, but just moved back a few months ago. Love T-Town. Got roots down there.

That snare sounds amazing. This is on a 7"?

The test results are in: “This Love” is still legal drugs.

Other expensive shows I've seen over the last couple decades: Devo, Pogues. Devo didn't play long, Bob II was still alive. Pogues were great but McGowen was plowed and couldn't do anything..

Just joining, Spring Break, woohoo, but Arto Lindsay, one of my first introductions to the Brazilian sound with the Ambitious Lovers in NYC 86. and speaking of small shows FMU introduced me to Laeticia Sadier and we saw her out here in a li'l club; I think we paid $15. Great show.

Mornin'! Been listening, but busy working. Going full circle to the conversation about special places to see artists, one of my favorites was the time I attended a "Surrealist Game Night" at a cafe in Somerville, MA, hosted by Roger Miller of Mission of Burma. Going in, I assumed he was just the celebrity host the venue got, but it turned out this was just something he's really into. He mostly just gave us the rules, then went from table to table to see how everyone was doing. It was really charming.
  Thu. 4/11/19 11:46am John from Florham Park:

@Priscella screw that rude guy next to you

so strange, I am not a heavy drinker at all but all of a sudden I have a strong desire to sip a glass of white wine during the shift from Modern World To Ravioli.
  Thu. 4/11/19 11:51am Adrian in London:

If you’re in London, a really special place to see artists is in library of the French Institute, the Fe ch government’s cultural centre. Le Superhomard are playing there next week.
