The band easily exceeded them all. We started off laying down in the grass but collectively decided to move up to the “standing room only” area before the band came on. Best decision we possibly could have made.

    I’m very happy Sigur Ros opened with “i-gaer.” As Chris said, much more fitting. I’ve never seen a performance quite like this. Sigur Ros sounded so incredibly polished. It felt they’ve been playing music together ever since they were born. “We’ve never played in a cemetery before. This is spectacular.” I love how soft-spoken Jonsi is.

    As we were walking through the cemetery towards the exit, we noticed that various amps were set up between the tombstones. This is where the recorded fan stories were broadcast from. It was very haunting to hear people tell stories of lost loved ones while walking through Hollywood Forever.

    Everyone has lost friends and family over the years… but I couldn’t help feel the connection with two of my best friends who passed away years back. I felt like Sigur Ros was playing specifically to them. This was the first show where I actually started crying. I feel like tearing up just writing this. I’m very fortunate and happy I could attend this performance with so many good friends (good meeting you Icy and nosurprises). Hopefully a bootleg surfaces at some point.

    Cheers
    Aw that sounds so amazing. I'm glad that so many of my board friends got to experience it. I really need to make it out for a cemetery show at some point.

    Yeah, calling Julia Holter's set "pretentious" was a bit much. I enjoyed it.

    Waiting for the inevitable Phoenix date (they consistently come here!). I was very impressed with their OSL set.

    People just throw that word around when they don't like something and want to dismiss it.

    Mostly I find people like to call something pretentious when they don't understand it and are intimidated by that fact, but that hardly applies to the Holter set.

    To be fair, I find Sigur Ros very pretentious. I have to be in the right mood to enjoy them. But when I am in the right mood, they're pretty amazing.

    edit: and yes I know you're talking about their opener being pretentious. I'm just saying.

    To be fair i've been listening to Sigur Ros regularly since 2006 and can't name much more than a couple of their songs so when people say they opened with #$%^ I'm all. Oh...that's what that song was called. I'm especially envious of those who know the difference between say Untitled 4 and Untitled 7. Without lyrics or song titles I just know the familiar sounds. I'm ok with simply loving their sound to death and listening to them without having all this information. Olsen Olsen and Hopopopoplolilililali are two I like a lot and I can recognize right away though.

    Their Outside Lands set was fantastic. I said this in that thread but the part with smoke on their video screens and all the fog/mist in the air while they were performing was surreal. They also thanked S.F. for bringing Icelands weather to the fest and making them feel at home.

    Yeah I don't know what the fuck any of their songs are called. I recognize them when I hear them, but I can't remember made-up language titles very well. There's that early song in which he sounds like a penguin they seem to play a lot. E-something something.

    Icelandic is not a made up language.

    I thought most of their songs were written in their own made-up language, not Icelandic.

    They sing some songs in Vonlenska. They sing some in Icelandic. Some songs even have both.

    All of the titles are in Icelandic or on occasion English.

    That's it.

    And butter, I don't remember the titles of most songs in any other language other than English. I struggle with Dungen's songs too (in Swedish).
