Wow, ok, so here’s a crazy series of discoveriesÂ… I’d known since Monday that Low is not actually playing on Saturday, but instead is playing Thursday and Friday (ie, if I want to see Umbrella Sequence, I have to see them tonight.) This isn’t so bad, seeing as how tonight is the 21+ show, and I’d rather see that one anyway. (mostly because they’re generally less crowded.)
So I’m not sure why, but I’m randomly surfing the TCASL again, and find out that this Saturday, Junior Senior is playing at the 7th St. Entry. Fuck yeah! I don’t even have to miss any of the other concerts I was planning for this weekend!
OK, but here’s where it starts to go Bizzzaro. I’ve never heard of the headlining actÂ… Electric Six. Maybe I’ve heard of them, but I’ve never heard them. (Update, turns out I’ve heard a few songs,) anyway, I surf to their website, and find that they’ve got a blog of sorts, and the third entry is talking about David Blaine’s latest stunt. How weird is it that I hear about it there first? On this blog I’ve never been to before by some band I’m going to see on Saturday by coincidence.
Point is, he’s locked himself up in a clear plastic cage suspended above the ground for 40 days and 40 nights. (Maybe 44 days?) I guess he’s had quite a few protestors and people throwing eggs at him and stuff. There was even a guy who possibly commited suicide within site of the box. As usual with David Blaine, it’s all very strange and mysterious.
