+1 Hottie Needed For Clap Your Hands Say Yeah — 10/5 @ Troubadour
Date: 2005-09-23, 7:58PM PDT

Iím on assignment for a national indie music magazine (no, not Pitchfork) to review the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah show at the Troubadour on 10/5. All of my friends already landed their own tickets, so I thought I could use my +1 to meet someone new.

You: Eastsider, knows the band already, appears semi-regularly on Cobrasnake.com, okay with being ignored while I take notes for the review.

Me: pretty much what youíd expect.

  1. What an ass.

    While were semi-on the subject, can we stop calling Echo Park and Silverlake the “Eastside?” If you live west of downtown, you’re not a god damn Eastsider, and La Brea is not the “Westside.” How small are these people’s frame of reference? There are a lot of hard guys on the other side of downtown that would probably be happy to debate whether you’re from the the East side of LA.

  2. There are ways that I know I’m similar to this guy, but then I realize I’m not a pretentious asshole. At any event, I really am not impressed with CYHSY as everyone else seems to be. Am I missing something?

  3. To some, East Side is a neighborhood, like Boyle Heights or Echo Park, in which case they’re referring to some region beginning at downtown, extending south and east of Main or Broadway. To others, it’s just a marker between rough cultural and physical divisions of the city. These days that dividing line might be Vermont, though many people push that boundary further west, to La Brea. Downtown is almost as far east as you can go in the city. </didactic> My $0.02 as a 10-year resident and regional native.

    But, yeah. Asshole.. he’ll probably get laid.

  4. Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah! do indeed rock. But they are getting wayyyy trop grande for their own good. Hopefully they won’t burn out before the new year.
