The one time (so far) I've gotten to hang out with lala, was at a show in Indianapolis. She walked up behind us to stand in line, and I knew. I don't know how I knew but I knew. All I remember thinking is "Quick Dakota, don't be a wuss. Try to start a conversation and figure out if you're right." At that point I was fairly new here still am, fuck it and had never seen pictures of this remarkable human specimen. But it worked. I knew and as we were talking, I could see she came to know also. (It was beautiful. I think I might just shed a tear.) Anyways, we hadn't exchanged names and she said "you're Dakota aren't you?!" And in the midst of smiling and replying "I knew it" I found myself in an embrace that was so warm, it will be told in my story book of friendship for the rest of my life. And that's how it happened. You fucking rule woman.

Awww. That's so sweet. You know what's funny is that's exactly how Pookey and I met. I got in line behind him for Tame Impala. Music is our heartbeat  :-*

lala, do you plan on going around San Diego before/after the show??
I'm staying in La Jolla, but I do have days on both sides of the show.

"Also slated to appear over the course of its run, July 24-27, will be G-Eazy, MGMT, and Grimes, reports Billboard. Those last two won’t just be playing any party, they will be playing a party on board an actual aircraft carrier. The USS Midway is docked next to San Diego’s Convention Center and will provide the setting for CraveOnline’s Comic-Con party on July 25"  radio.com

I'm loving all of the hype around this.  I didn't expect that the press would even get ahold of it.  Any publicity is good publicity!!!

I'm all booked.  I'll get the lay of the land and see if it's cool to take pics/video.  I always think of you guys, but I really want to be in the moment.  I'll do my best to snap a couple so you can see the set up, if it's cool to do that.  It may very well not be.

This is a campaign for Sauchiehall St in Glasgow, Scotland (my homeland).  There's an Eat In The Street, Meet In The Street, Shop In The Street, etc.  It's not a gig.  It's just music you might hear there.  I think it's completely amazing that they were mentioned :)

I wish that at festivals they would do Kids, TTP and Electric Feel first. Then launch into Siberian Breaks so the bros and basic bitches can clear out and leave the rest of the set to those of us who know more than three songs.
Right! I agree again. :)
But maybe they don't want to experiment the departure of many people during their set (?)

Now I just hope they come back soon to Paris in a 'classical venue', because they weirdly do several festivals in France but not the parisian one (Rock en Seine at the end of August, however probably many of their fans will be here)...

Yes, I was just stating my fantasy ;)  Of course they don't want an Exodus.  Just me  :P

This is going to be so cool. Both my uncle and stepdad worked on this ship while in the Navy!

Ahhhh!  That's extremely cool!

I'm in the process of booking my flight right now.  I should've done it yesterday.  It's been bouncing all over the place for the past month, and it hit it's lowest yesterday.  Now it's back up.  Sooooo worth every dime!

Comic-Con: MGMT, Grimes to Perform on an Aircraft Carrier


MGMT and Grimes are heading to San Diego's 2014 Comic-Con International, where MGMT will play a live set and Grimes will DJ at a party for CraveOnline on July 25. The event will take place aboard the USS Midway, an aircraft carrier docked adjacent to the Convention Center, and appropriately enough TNT's "The Last Ship" will sponsor.
 
Though Comic-Con has primarily been a destination for movie studios and TV networks to hype their latest franchises in recent years, it's become a rising priority for the music industry to capitalize on all the fan activity. Metallica played a surprise show last year in support of their pseudo-documentary "Metallica Through The Never," while VH1 Classic recruited Rob Zombie to play the first-ever Opening Party in 2012. Also on tap for Comic-Con 2014 are G-Eazy and Linkin Park, who will perform at MTV's Fan Fest on Thursday, July 24.
 
The CraveOnline event is produced and booked by Mirrored Media, an L.A.-based music marketing company that has previously paired Metric with Acura for a fall 2012 tour and mobile-charging brand Mophie with key festivals like Life Is Beautiful, Coachella and Lollapalooza.
 
MGMT are touring in support of their third album, "MGMT," which was released last September. Grimes has started teasing new material for her upcoming second album, including the single "Go," which was originally intended for Rihanna.
