Ahhh! I love this movie!!!
march 5 is a tuesday
I'm sure the concert was five star, wish i was in portland then. this article sux however, why intro him with his full and middle name? just introduce the artist, when would you ever use my middle name to introduce me? who cares. and nom de rock? that's fresh off the cheese wagon. interesting would be your distanced, doormanlike good manners to describe what this musical concoction would sound like. long live the bucket in portland!
A reviewer at the Mercury has the rare opportunity to put her east coast liberal arts education to the test and write something informative and descriptive about Camper Van Beethoven, and yet Courtney Ferguson’s review offers only mean spirited narcissism with a scatological twist. For kicks, let’s take a look at Courtney’s trip down excretion lane with her choice of descriptors “sewage, incontinent, hot pile and shit show.” Has someone been taking late night tokes off the Metamucil? Camper Van’ have been serving eclectic musical offerings for over 30 years. They’re innovators in contemporary music including the indie rock scene which Courtney holds so dear to her. They could put out an album of ambient music for chinchillas and it wouldn’t matter. They have nothing to prove. I’ve seen them recently and their musicianship remains fantastic. This much rage and anger over their new record which doesn't satisfy a writer's need to feel special warrants a trip to the yoga studio. Courtney – relax. It’s going to be ok! You will get through this Pabst-sodden developmental stage. FYI! Camper’s bassist Victor Krummenacher was art director at the Bay Area Guardian and now works for Wired. Good luck seeking employment at either one...
The mean spiritedness of your review is appalling.
The show actually starts at 7:30 on Thursday - Saturday. Doors open at 7:00PM
The Sunday show time is correct, doors open at 1:30PM
Is there some rule that Mercury music reviewers have to be 12 years old?
And what exactly does it mean when an event is a "Staff Pick," a "Readers Pick" and a "shitshow"?
I really enjoyed this show, enough that I am seeing it again with friends this weekend.
WOW what a fantastic night!!! I have been a fan of "Dancing with the Stars" and "So you think you can Dance" for years now. I was impressed with the performance content, I wasn't expecting that much variety. The American Idol singers were so great together, a duo that's meant to be. Not many singers harmonize together like those two did, it reminds me of the man who discovered the Judds. He said when he heard them sing together that a perfect union was formed, these two have that also. I would like to see the opening number with Anna more dramatic, especially in regard to her costume. The green dress has too much fabric and obscures her legs from the audience and therefore she loses the effectiveness of her dancing which is incredible!!! I would like to see her do a few more numbers throughout the show because she is delightful to watch, (maybe something hotter and sexy)!!! On Dancing with the Stars I've always loved her routines in the Latin style genre especially when her outfit shows off her bare back and you can see her hip movements because she has such form technicality.
The contemporary dancers were great, especially the girl. The first number she danced made me cry. When contemporary moves you to tears, you know it's really something special. All the dancers were fantastic and I would like to see them pick different theater or rearrange the orchestra to allow them a bigger stage area to dance in. I hope you know how deeply dancing touches peoples hearts, when we were leaving there was a little girl out in the lobby dancing and you could see it in her eyes that you made her dreams into a reality that she knew she could do too!!! Her smile was beaming and the sparkle in her eyes was pure magic and your show did that to her... beautiful!!! Thank you so much for a wonderful evening and now two of my sons one 17 and the other 16 want to take ballroom dance lessons, and that's really something trust me.
