    I saw Kurt Vile last night at a benefit concert in a small local theater. He played solo, and I have to say while it had a few moments, I was overall disappointed. I knew it wouldn’t be a conventional show, but he came across as very awkward and shy. It was super intimate, but he didn’t want anyone to clap or provide rhythm, so without a band it was definitely missing something at times.

    That guy was two rows in front of me and he was so fucking annoying. In addition, he was doing these bizarre hand gestures.

    Mitski back after three years. Hopefully leads to an LP and, if it’s right for her and she is willing, another tour.

    It’s certainly possible, but that stretch of dates is a little early for the radius clause to be in effect (They don’t really apply it uniformly though). I think she’s more likely as a pitchfork headliner, but I agree with you regardless she’ll end up at a festival in chicago at some point next year.

    Anyone know how the Spotify "presave" feature works? I want to add that Hand Habits album that's coming out in two weeks and don't see a way to do it. But I've seen artists telling fans to presave their upcoming release before. Only available in certain situations?

    I'd check their social media. Usually they'll have a link setup to where you can either preorder the album or you can presave it using their link to Spotify.

    Did I completely underestimate how big Mitski is, or is there some other contributing factor that makes these such hot tickets?

    I believe she’s had a few songs become incredibly popular via tik tok, so she might have interest from a new mainstream audience.

    She’s massively popular. I also believe there was an article on here, she had quite a cult live show following even before she became more famous if you will.

    This makes sense. She's very good. The idea of bots eating up her tickets really threw me off though

    She also is an excellent performer. I saw her on her "last tour" here in Phoenix in a much smaller venue with almost no struggle in getting tickets and she translates the interpretive dance she does in her videos onto the stage. Have fun, those who are getting to go.
