MusicfestNW: Built to Spill, Britt Daniel 

When: Fri., Sept. 5, 5:30 p.m. 2008
Price: free w/pass
I'm done with Built to Spill. But unlike most listener/performer splits, I don't blame the band one bit. We've grown apart. I'm no longer a teenager hinging on every word that escapes Doug Martsch's mouth, and, to be honest, he's not making There's Nothing Wrong with Love anymore. There is no animosity here, so consider this a case of indie rock irreconcilable differences: I'll keep the early records and maybe get weekend visitations with Keep it Like a Secret, but they can keep Ancient Melodies of the Future and their live show guitar wankery. Kids, it's not that Built to Spill and I don't love you anymore, it's just that we've grown apart (and I secretly want to spent my time with younger, more exciting bands). Tonight the band will lipstick the pig and perform 1997's Perfect from Now On in its entirety while I stand in the front row, silently drowning in regret for what could have been. EAC
