From The Admin Cubicle: Asobi Seksu Tonight [Updated]

Asobi SeksuWe're offline this evening checking out Brooklyn dream-poppers Asobi Seksu playing a free show up at Tufts University with Man Man. We're not sure how much Man Man we'll stay to see, but we are aware of the reports out there stating the band's live show is utterly bonkers. So we'll see. Either way, we expect to post a review of the show before the weekend is out. And who knows, perhaps we'll even get a decent picture? In the meantime, why not read our review of Asobi Seksu's transcendent recent set Citrus? Newer readers may not realize how much we dig it; the set is one of our favorites of the year.

UPDATE: Well, we made the scene with H-Dawg From Accounts Receivable and discovered that the venue was a low, long room with no stage and that set times were already delayed an hour. We then met up with and consulted Mr. 'Nac, and a group decision was made to forego the evening's entertainment. We look forward to seeing Asobi Seksu another time in a more formal venue.

P.S. -- We just watched TV On The Radio playing "Wolf Like Me" on Letterman the other night on our TiVo. Holy cow. It's on YouTube here.

If by "formal" you mean "non-dorm", then yes, I look forward to a more formal venue in which to witness the Seksu.

Yeah, that is the sort of formality I'm looking for :)
