She Doesn't Exist with Sebadoh

Have you listened to the tape? I saw Robyn on the MABD tour in Boston last
night. F**king incredible. And-- I GOT HIS AUTOGRAPH ON A PROMO POSTER FOR
JFS!!!! I'm having it framed today. His set rocked. At the end, he had
Sebadoh come play "She doesn't exist anymore". I love Sebadoh (not as much
as Robyn), and I love that song. I felt like I won the lottery.

the whole show was pretty cool, if excessively loud. uqu were the
least interesting; but they were still pretty cool with standup bass.
cornelius took techno and rock and threw them together very well with
hilarious video accompaniment. the loud beatbox music blasting before
robyn made his acoustic set seem rather incongruous. he was very charming
and funny and seemed to win over the crowd dispite this. he introduced
'the yip song' as "the most upbeat song i've ever written; which is rather
strange since it's about death from cancer." i don't think i've ever
heard 'autumn is your last chance' live. i was very excited to hear him
play with sebadoh. it was a little sloppy; but 'she doesn't exist' had a
kick-ass groove. sebadoh played an extra long set which forced the lips
to set up faster. i've never heard the lips live; but they sounded great.
the soft bulletin keeps sounding better and better.
