Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

The Magic Whip is now out of the UK Album charts while Chasing Yesterday is still in the Top 40 and Time Flies and (What's the Story) Morning Glory are in the Top 100.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

So I just realized that a post I made in this thread a few months back pretty much predicted the current situation.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Ok so, here's the dilemma. I definitely want tickets (even if the best ones have sold out), but now I'm not sure whether to attend the Madison Square Garden or Hollywood Bowl show as I'll be living in Portland, Oregon then, but my younger brother will still be living in Atlanta. I'm trying to take i...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Ughhhhh.... For the past several weeks, I've been out working in the mountains of North Carolina with almost no access to any internet connection. Do you guys think it would be too late to snag tix for MSG? I won't have a chance to even try to buy some until tonight.

Re: The Ride Thread

Just saw Ride live at Shaky Knees festival. I'm tired as hell so full details will have to wait until tomorrow, but I will say that they were incredible.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

I also think there's a small chance they could do Music Midtown in September, if only because the dates line up well and that could be their one big Southeastern US festival date. I dunno, the way Music Midtown has changed in the past few years since it's revival (ie. from a wide ranging festival f...

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

So this is kind of random, but Essex Dogs and Strange News From Another Star are both currently at #186 and #187 on the Philippines iTunes.
Who would have thunk it?

Nah, dude you got it all wrong. Music peaked when Ug the caveman first banged two rocks together.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

I dunno, they've played in Atlanta 5 times before. And we're not as, err, backwards as other parts of the south. Maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part.

Re: "Hip Hop Saved Music"

Everyone knows REAL music died in 1980. I only listen to Queen, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, while everyone else my age listens to crap like rap and Justin Bieber. I think I was born in the wrong generation.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

It's not even that far off from what Think Tank sold in 2003 the first week (and that was back when a lot of albums were selling multiple millions of copies a year). And besides, these are changed times. I'm willing to bet a lot of people who may have heard and liked the album simply just pirated it...

I do. Nowhere is a classic, but I've been really digging Going Blank Again. I'll be seeing them on Sunday.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

According to this Billboard article, The Magic Whip actually had 15,000 in pure sales (ie. not counting streams or anything) in the first week.
