I just saw Man Man, and was reminded that their Roxy show was, without a doubt, one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in my life. It made me think about those shows that were just astounding.
Sigur Ros at the Bowl-It was just one of those shows. Everything worked perfectly, and Untitled 8 was the single best live moment I've ever witnessed
Joanna Newsom at the El Rey-She reorganized Ys and struck gold with her touring band. Heartbreaking, in such a great way.
Man Man at the Roxy-They had a level of energy that I've never seen come from a band before, and they got the crowd so involved.
Olivia Tremor Control at Arthurfest-What can I say? Some of the best songs I've ever heard played live, and seeing a singing saw, a tuba and random other instruments being manipulated like that was gold.
The Knife at the El Rey-Visual feasts
Les Savy Fav/Parts and Labor at the Bowery Ballroom-See them and you'll understand. So great
Daft Punk/Arcade Fire (05) at Coachella-Both were far more memorable than any other Coachella performances I've seen, insanely good.
