    Smile Hercules and Love Affair

    Ok, I've got a general rule about avoiding 'out of season' Coachella posts, but here it goes:

    Hercules and Love Affair should close the Sahara on Friday night. Just saw them in San Francisco and they were brilliant -- I've never seen a crowd so primed and pumped, and then completely ecstatic. They could easily hold their own nad would deliver a perfect up-note to end the first night of 09!

    I'm all for this, the chances of them coming near here are pretty much zero.

    I saw them at the LA show at the Echo recently. I thought they were good, not great, but the main drawback was the venue's crappy sound. In a better venue I think they would have been great, although I'd still miss Anthony's vocals on the songs he sings on the album (but Nomi does a pretty good job filling in on Blind).

    I saw them at Mezzanine in SF. They were epic, as far as I can remember -- but I also remember the place being packed until the bitter end and that everyone was drenched in sweat at the end of the show. The band also appeared a bit taken aback at how crazy the crowd was. How's that sound?

    Yeah I was at that show as well. They played a shockingly strong set and I say shockingly due to the fact that at least half of it sounded like new material. Usually people don't go for that kind of thing yet everyone became more and more enticed because of it. It came out as a blast of solid dance music and I think that they could easily hold down one of the larger tents. Also I think there could be a very high chance that they would come. They have reached the pinnacle of their hype this year and I believe that the powers that be at band recruiting for the festival would love to grab them because of not only this increased awareness but also the apparent extreme desire that people have to see them. Because they play so rarely I think that a Coachella spot would cause them to draw an immense crowd. I'd put money on it.

    Friday night's show as part of TBA in Portland was awesome. We were in the 12th row, center which is pretty much the sweet spot for the venue. We didn't dare take a photograph during the performance but the guy next to us did and I hope to see some of those soon.
    Antony opened to a darkened theater with Mysteries of Love which slowly led to a reveal of the orchestra behind him. All of the songs he did were new to me aside from For Today I Am A Boy. It may well have been all new stuff but it didn't matter.
    His voice carried everything and I would have gladly sat in a darkened theater for the chance to hear him sing.

    They sound like shitty 70's disco. At least what I have heard so far.

    I just know the songs that come on my ipod. I probably have not heard the whole album but the songs I've heard are straight 70's disco rip offs. I listen to them a bit more on youtube and its pretty mediocre. Seriously I love funky horns but you can't tell me this is not straight disco. Makes me want to get a leisure suit and an 8 ball.

    I have been putting off listening to them a while. but i had nothing to do today so i have been going through monklish's entire "confirmed blog" and i was pretty disappointed with these guys. ill give them another listen if they end up being on the lineup.

    I think they'd be better in the other tent.

    Keep this band out of the Sahara. Or at least don't let them close it. Save that for a good act.
