Broken Social Scene butcher two things: A boyfriend and "The Good Times Are Killing Me" with Isaac Brock

Full disclosure, I'd never heard of Broken Social Scene until this morning, so here is one from them to start off with...  This is pretty great.  The music is all right, I like it, but the video is freakin' awesome. Graphically dismembering a dead boyfriend with an ax category of awesome.  (There is your warning.)


Anyway... Getting to the point. I found this next clip, from 10/1/2011 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, on Pitchfork this morning. Yes, it is cute for a few, but at a certain point it becomes time to just shut the hell up and play the damn song. Commit, damn it! Enthusiasm, live, can make up for a lot.

Sometimes, perfectionism can really kill a live show. But you got to hand it to Isaac for his patience!  

Watch Isaac Brock Perform With Broken Social Scene | News | Pitchfork: "Broken Social Scene invited their pal Isaac Brock on stage at a performance in San Francisco on Saturday night to perform Modest Mouse's "The Good Times Are Killing Me", One Thirty BPM points out. The song didn't go as smoothly as they'd planned, but the several minutes worth of fumbling and arguing is probably as endearing as if it had."

Here is the real deal... Modest Mouse on Austin City Limits, January 22, 2005.
