Had a great time at the Elvis Perkins / Let's Go Sailing show last night at Waiting Room. Elvis was quite good, as I expected, but so was opener Let's Go Sailing. LGS's music is slow, quiet pop with soft, dreamy female vocals. Nice stuff. I'm just now starting to listen to the CD. I talked for a while with LGS's singer Shana Levy, and she was a really nice person. Turns out, two of her band's songs were featured on the show Grey's Anatomy. I have never seen the show, but based on how many women in my office talk about it every week, I know it is a big deal. (Check out the band's MySpace page to hear some of their stuff)
The crowd was a little light, but since Neko Case played the night before in Lincoln, I think much of the normal Elvis Perkins audience wasn't willing to go out two nights in a row. What pussies. I was hungover from the night before, and I still made it out -- and drank again! No one can call me an old light weight!
