Do you have a video of My Body at Firefly? :3

I’m afraid I don’t, but I do have the first 43 seconds of it that I took with an iTouch when YTG opened for Incubus in Miami last year. It’s not much, but I guess it’s worth posting just to hear Sameer Gadhia reminding us that it’s a rock show - if you want to get up, you can get up!” :-)

I only managed to catch the end of Young The Giant's set at Firefly, so here’s the best I could do from so far from the stage - a few pieced-together clips from Cough Syrup and Apartment that I hope won’t make you too dizzy (unless that’s your normal reaction to Sameer Gadhia). Hard-core YTG fans will get it.

Firefly meetup?

(Sorry, Browncoats, I mean the other Firefly.)

If anyone wants to meet up at the Firefly Festival this weekend, just look for someone who is probably around your parents’ age, either hobbling around with a cane, or on crutches, or just limping if I’m having a good day. (Now you really want to meet me, don’t you?)

Just my luck a chronic illness chose this of all months to come out of remission, but eff-it, I’m going anyway. A specialist could have shot me up with some hellacious (but effective) meds by now, but somehow the "but I have to go see Jack White" excuse wasn’t considered enough of an emergency. Can you believe that?

Meanwhile, people are starting to post their “must see” lists, so here’s mine:

Friday - Jack White
Saturday - Cake, Modest Mouse
Sunday - Awolnation, The Flaming Lips, The Black Keys

I’ll be happy with that, if I can manage it. My “B” list includes The Killers, Grouplove, Death Cab for Cutie, The Wallflowers, Walk the Moon, Imagine Dragons, and Young the Giant - and before you Young the Giant fans start giving me a hard time for not putting them on my “A” list (like you did a few weeks ago when I described them as “kinda” cute instead of “hella” cute) the only reason is because I’ve already seen them once. I do plan to make every effort to catch them again, though, and as a sign of good faith, here’s a hella sexy screenshot:

Inter-band awesomeness, and a sweet Harvard mousepad.

Another peace offering for Young the Giant fans. I was at this show. VERY cute.

One more Young the Giant appreciation post for all those serious fans out there, a few of whom I’m pleased to say have started following me (now that I’ve redeemed myself). Fair warning - I blog primarily about Incubus, but it’s nice to have some new friends. Actually, I’m supposed to be seeing YTG again next month at Firefly. Meetup, anyone?

A thousand pardons, Young the Giant fans. I humbly withdraw “kinda,” and concur that they’re extremely hella cute.

Young the Giant streaming live from Bonnaroo right now. I saw them open for Incubus last fall. They’re kinda cute.

Young the Giant - Apartment (Acoustic)

I saw these guys open for Incubus last September and thought they were kinda cute. Heard them on the radio today and decided Sameer Gadhia has a lovely voice.
