I didn't see a thread for this (maybe I just missed it somehow), so here goes. The night started out lame because I kind of got blown off by a girl I was supposed to be meeting there, but the search for her got me into the artist's area for awhile where I saw Georgia Hubley and Rachel Blumberg, so even that was kind of redeemed. I'd never heard any M. Ward before tonight, but he put on a good show. Yo La Tengo was magnificent, I've loved them for a long time and this was my first time seeing them live; Ira's guitar heroics during that last jam session/song were exhilirating. As for Bright Eyes, I've never been a huge fan of them but the live show was good. I'm still not convinced that their music is ideal for the Philharmonic treatment (or maybe I'm just spoiled from hearing The Tain in that context), but it was an entertaining show regardless.
