On the one hand, I'm as big a fan of Cold Cave as anyone; on the other hand, Les Savy Fav have a much longer, and even more impressive, track record of both outstanding albums and reliably unhinged live shows (whereas Cold Cave can be kind of hit-or-miss in the live department). On the other other hand, though, I've seen Les Savy Fav's crazy hobo post-punk thing more times than I've seen Cold Cave's new-wave moping. I guess I'll probably go with Les Savy Fav, but we'll see. Anyway, below's what I've sorted out for my schedule, with precious little time allotted for food, beer garden, and bathroom breaks. What's on your agenda?
