BALTIMORE!!! I saw Julian at Rams Head, it’s a fun venue. If anyone wants to go to that one let me know, I’m getting tickets.

shut up! can it get any better than this??! I bought my Jake Bugg ticket a loooong time ago, but this pretty much seals the deal! For anyone that hasn’t seen Jake Bugg live before, I highly recommend it!

I saw him open for Noel Gallagher last year when he had just started out, and it was just him and his acoustic guitar, his voice translated very well across the venue, and it was a pretty decent sized venue. I can’t wait to see what he sounds like now that he has a live band! And as for Albert, this will be my first time going to one of his solo shows, so I am super stoked! I hope he plays a good mix of all his releases, I love everything he’s done so far!

I dislike both Jake Bugg and his music so this is a bit whatever to me, but I suppose this is great news for Albert so I’m really happy for him.

I feel like a lot of people really hate jake bugg simply because his young and has some talent, coupled with a sometimes lousy attitude, it’s up to him to decide where his musical influences and career goes but he’s a very good guitarist

THANK YOU WARREN FU FOR CLARIFYING

FYI #InstantCrush is NOT autotuned. Wish the press would stop saying that. It’s multiple layers of vocals that are harmonizing

*Lets see-H2E, Reptilia, AMA, FOS, Games, OotB, Glass, OWT, Chances and now Instant Crush (to name a few). How many different ranges and different styles will it take for Julian to sing before the press (and others…) stop doubting his pretty amazing vocals? Srsly!

Now that the show is all ages, I can finally go see Albert, even sooner than I expected! I was planning on seeing Jake Bugg anyway, so this couldn’t get any better. (well I guess it could. It could be the strokes :) )

@Kinger

12 yeah December 7, 2013 at 6:31 pm

WOW pics are exciting….
is VOIDZ the name of julian’s new band? or album? i hope the album and he just goes under Julian Casablancas but whatever…..if he does say VOIDZ is his bands that will just start a lot of rumors of a strokes break up though….anyway i don’t care I’m just excited

What would be a great Christmas gift is Julian releasing a single for Voidz around the holiday. I may be too hyper but this is so awesome!

14 Annie 1251 December 7, 2013 at 8:08 pm

@yeah
I dunno if Voidz is the name of his band -but it’s on his website. But remember his last solo band was called the Sick Six and TS didn’t break up.

Here’s a good article from the Observer from Phrazes tour that the Sick Six is mentioned:

@Kinger
YES! a single out this month would be so GREAT
