Both performances were awesome. I showed up relatively early to the Portland show since I'm a shorty and managed to make it to the third "row." Shirley and the band still know how to command the stage. I went in not having listened to anything off SLB but was instantly enamored by what I heard. It was riveting and different at the same time, and the lyrics felt from the heart like in BLM. They played "The Trick is to Keep Breathing" and "#1 Crush," songs I've been waiting eleven years to see live! "Subhuman" was a nice touch too!
I bought my ticket late for the Seattle show so ended up in the balcony, but it had its advantages. While not as "in-your-face" as being up close to the stage, it was definitely easier to see the whole band, not to mention over peoples' heads, and the acoustics sounded nicer to me. They played "Milk" at Cigarettes After Sex's request, sang Happy Birthday to Brad (not Pitt), and ended on "#1 Crush." I felt like a little kid all over again. Bummed now that it's over. I got to see Garbage live again, and just like last time, it's all downhill from here.
Dance Away: And, Elvis Costello's wife is Diana Krall. Oh god, do I love the music of Diana Krall! And, I know it's an aspiration of Shirley to do the kind of music that Krall is doing. Shirley's mother was a 'big band' music singer (sample "Glenn Miller" big band)

thebestsalvia: Yes, Salvia like Mescaline but it is useful for meditation or tired less. But it's possible when you will be taken Salvia in right quantity.

david0913: Oh my, this is too deep to believe; the amount of conceptualization and depth of the discourse can only make me feel...what do you guys talk about on here, anything [sigh]?

orthodoxparadox36: I think that album actually saved, well, a few of the most important things in my life. I am eternally grateful for the way you all chose to dedicate your collective creative genius; something which makes it that much more special, not to mention, genuine!
