Wow - you're a Crash Worship fan!!

I bet you would enjoy Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.

They're playing on June 15 at the Great American Music Hall in SF. It's not listed on their website...don't know why. But it's truly a show that's not to be missed. Don't listen to their music first - just go to the show.

Thanks! I wouldn't say I'm a Crash Worship fan, exactly, as I didn't find out about them until recently. However, I do think I would be a fan based on the video I saw of one of their concerts. I've long had fantasies about starting a "religion" that included firedancing, taiko drumming, gymnasts as a part of the ceremony.

I enjoy SGM, but they put on an average rock show, relative to Crash Worship. The last CW show I saw, maybe in the late 90s, was somewhat of a disappointment, cheesed out with a funk element or something.

I'd love to know who the 200x CW is, but I'm more likely to go to tamer surroundings these days anyway. Check out Diamanda Galas if she ever performs near you, probably at a concert hall. My review at http://gondwanaland.com/mlog/2006/10/20/defixiones/

Yes, I agree that SGM is a bit more tame than Crash Worship, but they're still a toe curler for me. :) Nils Frykdahl is one of the best performers I've ever seen. It's rare to see so much raw, genuine, emotion exuded... Mrraaarrrr!

I'm a huge Diamanda fan... haven't seen her perform recently, but she the last show that I did see was AMAZING.

Frykdahl is awesome (hmm, I have a review of one of his shows too, http://gondwanaland.com/mlog/2004/03/22/texas-alien-abductions-up-after-chunnel-completion/ ) but that doesn't change the nature of a SGM show, which shares more qualities with a (insert random rock performer, say Rod Stewart, just to be egregious) show than a CW show.

Yes, that certainly is egregious!
