Warehouse's Ben Jackson gets Mad Libbed

When you're at a Warehouse show you can feel something special happening - an electricity filling the room, from the stage to the crowd. It's a momentum that quiets a room and pulls an audience in. They deserve a long, well-written piece about them someday. But, for now, guitar player Ben Jackson humored me and let me "mad lib" him over the phone. To be honest, until I see them a few more times I don't think I could come close to doing them justice. Tonight is your chance to say "I saw them before Billy Mitchell made them famous," and write your own story. Mad Lib answers are bold.

Ben Jackson is a dog who exploits in Warehouse. Going to a Warehouse show is like seeing a bigger dog and feeling coy and hasty. Singer Elaine expounds in a way that's reminiscent of Tilda Swinton. At a recent show they were disappointing and it made Ben feel handsome and dull. Local band Hellier Ulysses had this to say about Warehouse after their last Charles. "We have been trying to forget in the style they do, but when we collapse it sounds clumsy while they placate perfectly in time. To say we are proud is an understatement." Ben told me that they "draw a lot of our influences from imitating bugs and pretending we are wearing red and blue sweaters." It will feel like Confederate Memorial Day in December at 529 tonight. You will galvanize and say geez while your raincoat gust of wind on the dance floor.

Warehouse and Drag Lines play 529 tonight (Tues., May 7). $5. 10 p.m. 529 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-228-6769.
