I'm SO excited! Not only are Portishead playing twice in NYC this year (Hammerstein Ballroom, 10/04 & 10/05) and also in New Jersey (Asbury Park, ATP - I'll Be Your Mirror festival, 09/30-10/02) BUT one of my closest and most loveliest friends, Charlie's band Thought Forms will be supporting them through-out the whole US and Canada tour!!!
I first saw Thought Forms live in 2006, and then again in 2009. I'm really looking forward to seeing them on a larger stage, playing to a larger audience this year! If you are a fan of Sonic Youth, Slint, My Bloody Valentine and Mogwai you should definitely check them out. Charlie and Deej are amazing guitarists,and have that rare talent of making their guitars sing to each other on stage, with what seems like no effort at all. Thought Forms music really just speaks for itself. You really just need to hear them play to understand the awesomeness of it all.
I'm soooo excited!!!
