This concert hasn’t happened yet, but it’s scheduled to take place at 9:00 tonight. I’ve decided to go ahead and write my review because every other time I’ve tried to see Marah in concert, something has happened that kept me from it. I’ve been trying to track them down since 1998. That was the year I got Let’s Cut the Crap and Hook up Later on Tonight for my birthday. I remember my parents bought me the CD at Everybody’s Records and then we went to the movies in the building that now houses my gym. I don’t remember what we saw. I could look it up, though. I write everything down.
But anyway, one time I was scheduled to see Marah up in Columbus. I don’t remember exactly what happened, but either the band or I ended up in Columbus on the wrong night. Another time the band broke up a couple days before I was scheduled to see them. These bastards are hard to catch. So I thought that if I went ahead and wrote my review, then it would be impossible for the concert to not take place. How can there be a review of something that never happened? It wouldn’t make any sense. So here we go:
Blah, blah, blah, concert, blah, blah, Bielanko, blah, blah, acoustic, blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah, kick out the jams, blah, blah, blah. And then, blah, blah, merch table, blah, blah, annoying jerk, blah, $15? P’shaw! Blah, blah, Serge, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah, blah. Heck yeah. Blah, blah, setlist.
I’m also happy to announce that I found my 300th ba-ba song while listening to Marah this afternoon. It’s “The Hustle” from their 2005 record, If You Didn’t Laugh, You’d Cry.
Here are a couple of my usual concert scans:
