The Strokes - 4/25/06 - Agganis Arena - Boston

So last night I saw the Strokes over at Agganis Arena (Boston University's Hockey Rink/Concert Venue) and it was, too say the least, an incredible show. The opening band was a band called Sean Na Na which I later realized featured Sean (Har Mar Superstar) Tillman. We didn't catch them but from what I gathered, we didn't miss too much. Anyways, the Strokes came on a little bit after 9 and opened with their latest single, "Heart In A Cage" which is not my favorite song off the new record (First Impressions of Earth) but was still an awesome opener. The band then played two more tracks from First Impressions, "Red Light" and the album’s leadoff single, "Juicebox" before busting into my personal favorite Strokes song, "The End Has No End." The band rounded out the first half of the set with a few more cuts from their new album and one or two from their second record Room on Fire before going into some songs off of their first album, Is This It. Now, I’ll go on the record and say that my favorite Strokes record is without a doubt Room on Fire, but hearing all of those songs off the first album in a live setting really brought them into a whole new light for me. The band played a seven song batch of tunes, 6 of which were off of Is This It and it was by far the highlight of the show for me. "Is This It," "Someday," "Alone, Together," and "Hard to Explain" were all absolutely incredible. During that seven song group, the lone song not from Is This It was "Under Control," a Room on Fire song in which Sean Tillman, of Sean Na Na (and Har Mar Superstar) came on and did a duet with Julian. While he completely butchered an awesome song with his squeaky little voice, him and Julian seemed to be having a great time together so I guess it was alright. The band rounded out the set main set with "Ask Me Anything" (the song of First Impressions that features Julian on vocals backed only by Nick playing a Mellotron, a weird keyboard-type instrument), "Reptilia," and my favorite new song, "Vision of Division." After a quick break the band came on for a three song encore featuring "New York City Cops" (a song off of the UK version of Is This It), "Is This It," and "Take It or Leave It." I don't really get the big deal with "New York City Cops," I think its one of their worst songs but it always seems to be a favorite of hardcore Strokes fans, I guess its because it’s a rarity? The set overall was fantastic, all of the best cuts from First Impressions, and highlights from the band's back catalogue including almost all of Is This It, which like I said, translates into a live setting perfectly. My only complaints are that they missed a lot of great tunes off of Room on Fire, most notably "Whatever Happened?" "Meet Me in the Bathroom," and "You Talk Way Too Much," but what can you do. Musically the band was tight as can be, all of the parts were spot on including some amazing guitar work from both Albert Hammond Jr. and Nick Valenci. To be honest coming into the show I was wondering how well they would be able to play some of those blistering solos, especially from the new record but everything was played perfectly. Another part of the show I was really impressed with was the lighting, lots of colors and flashes and strobes and what not gave a lot of emphasis to the songs, especially during the particularly intense moments. Julian seemed to be in a great mood and was very appreciative of the crowd who in my opinion seemed to be very into the show and singing along pretty loud all the way through. My biggest complaint about this show was again, the sound. Being at Agganis, everything tends to jumble together by the time it hits your ears and I also though that Albert's guitar was pretty low at some points but other than that a fantastic show. The Strokes are an awesome live band at the top of their game (despite what you may think about First Impressions) if you can see them live, do so you won't regret it. They are a real rock band with an extremely solid catalogue, I can't think of a setlist they could possibly compile that I wouldn't enjoy.

Here is the setlist from the show:

Heart In A Cage
Red Light
Juicebox
The End Has No End
You Only Live Once
12:51
Ize Of The World
Trying Your Luck
Electricityscape
Someday
Alone, Together
Under Control (With Har Mar)
Last Nite
Hard To Explain
Soma
Barely Legal
Ask Me Anything
Vision Of Division
Reptilia
----------------------
New York City Cops
Is This It
Take It Or Leave It

Hi, seeing as you accept anonymous blogging I thought I would send you this info about online gambling from a guy at work. His blog features poker card and he has made a fortune from online gambling.

The Online Casino Startup Bonus

When choosing a trustworthy online casino there are many factors you need to consider. Just because one of the great number of online casinos existent today has impressive graphics, games and offers a wide diversity of bonuses, it doesnt mean its a fair and licensed one. Of course, such cases are rare, and, since today there are hundreds of reputable virtual casinos one can choose from, the most important criteria when deciding which one to play at is what they offer.

The first bonus you can get when you first open an account at a casino is the sign up bonus most casinos offer, an encouraging bonus of at least $25, but it may often be higher than $500. Some casinos even match your first deposit, meaning they double it, for free.

Many casinos also offer hundreds of dollars worth bonuses for new players and, if you're the one who brings other friends to the casino, things are even better than that. Most casinos offer a refer a friend bonus and, the more friends you have, the more fortunate you will get. For each friend you refer to the casino, you will get up to $1000, for each friend that they refer, you'll earn up to $300 and, furthermore, for each person that your friend's friends refer, you will earn up to $100. Once you are confident that particular casino is a reliable one, bring as many of your friends as you can to the casino and you'll have all the reasons to enjoy their games. The only thing you need to pay attention to afterwards is to handle the money wisely and not risk it all in a single bet, however confident you may be.

And most casinos give you an alternative to this. They offer you the chance to practice for free at first, and they also give you money to do that, so, it's practically free and you have nothing to lose. When you find the right casino you'll know it from the first time you play there. From then on, they will remind you how important you are to them by giving you special bonuses every month. These bonuses are somewhere around $100 and even higher and they reward you for being a loyal customer. These casinos also offer the so called comp points that accumulate throughout the course of the games you play and at certain points they turn into real money and, depending how long you have been playing at that casino, you may win lots of money.

The most important bonuses casinos offer are the jackpots and prizes you can win at their games. Casinos reward players with millions of dollars each day for their gaming skills. Tournaments and regular casino games are most profitable for gamblers. Only one progressive jackpot, for one single game of slots, for instance, can be of over $ 2 million. And it's only a matter of seconds and a bit of luck to win it.

Most casinos don't need a special occasion to give bonuses. They offer bonuses for the players third and fourth deposits, for being loyal to the casino, or just for being at a table at a certain time. So, it’s only a matter of finding the right casino and from there on, bonuses will keep coming to you. The only problem is that if you don't have a proper money management you won't treasure what you win, it will go away as easily as it came. We may all want those bonuses, but do we know what to do with them and how much of it we should risk in our next bet?


A guy at work recommends the following Casino Gaming Sites, (the trick is to sign up to each and get your startup bonuses) once you have played each one for a while you will get to know which one suits your style of play and which is therefore the most profitable one for you.


as follows:

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
