It's been two years since Asobi Seksu played a show in San Francisco. I know because I went to that show way back in March 2009 at the Independent. I was kind of surprised when I found out they'd be playing at the Bottom of the Hill this time around; when you compare both venues the Independent is about three times as big, and if that show was pretty crowded, then... yeah.
And truth be told I haven't been to the Bottom of the Hill much. In fact, this was only the second time I'd been there, the first being to see Metalchicks (an obscure metal side-project of the Japanese band Buffalo Daughter) ... back in 2007. Four years ago. It was certainly a lot bigger than I remembered, and the atmosphere was actually a lot different given that there seemed to be way more hipsters and people my age (I was a few days under 21 back then). There were also way more of my Asian brethren, heh.
