Caught an acoustic Dandy Warhols set yesterday at local record shop Sonic Boom, in advance of their show later that evening in Toronto. Ended up being mostly Courtney playing solo aside from the first 2 tunes when Brent joined and then left a little randomly which seemed to surprise Courtney. Without Brent, the set seemed to become a little loose and more of a best of, including Get Off, Bohemian, Godless, Country Leaver, We used to be friends.

Was actually going to post an old Kilian Martin skate vid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mgFdn4lfrE) which most have probably seen, but wanted to highlight as it’s worth another look. The artistry is absolutely beautiful. Anyways ended up stumbing on this new one from Kilian Martin. Skate videos have come long way since I remember watching.
