The last warehouse show is… Negativland!

I’m sorry to see Warehouse go away – as it exists now, anyway – but I’m pretty excited by this Sunday’s final show: Negativland. An acquired taste, to be sure, and I have not a clue what a live show from them will be like. If you’re a geek copyfighter, however, you should probably know who they are even if you don’t enjoy their music. They’ve been the focal point for a number of interesting events, including the one around their U2: Special Edit Radio Mix, available here. Worth a listen to hear Casey Kasem lose his shit, if nothing else.

Their website indicates that this tour “is an effort to bring our 25-years-on-the-air Over The Edge radio show to the live stage for the first time. No puppets, no film projectors, no bells and whistles… just “theater of the mind”” I don’t have the slightest damned idea what that means but I’m looking forward to finding out.

    According to Prince of Petworth, Warehouse is moving to Columbia Heights.

    In 1999 Negativland took over the 930 Club unlike any act I’d ever seen there. That was a huge production with massive sets and all kinds of theatrics. I think this Warehouse show is going to be really stripped bare and will be but a shadow of their last show in DC. That said, I bet it will still be an absolute blast.

    That show at the 930 was one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. I still remember “True False.” Pretty incredible stuff.

    Burning the toast throughout the DC Space show was unbearably awesome. I will try like hell to get there for this…

    This is bullshit. Nobody cares. These guys are from England and who gives a shit. It’s f*cking ponderous, man.

    (Negativland rules.)

    I want a goddamned concerted effort to come out of a record that isn’t a f*cking up-tempo record every time I do a GODDAMNED DEATH DEDICATION! Ah, Kasey, how little we knew ye.

    In actuality I think my favorite of their bits is “the playboy channel.” That NOISE is more important than you are. That NOISE is more important than your entire life.
