He apologized for never coming to Miami before and he even said the eff word !! ("Motherfucking Floridaaaa!")

    This being the first time Ive seen them in a non festival setting one of the first things I noticed was just how INTIMATE it felt to me. GA crowd isnt terribly large so we were close of course. I had a perfect shot of Bflow all night and it was fabulous.

    Oh and never in my entire life have I ever seen that much confetti at one time than I did during the climax of "All These Things...". We couldnt even look at the stage anymore because the stuff was just pouring on us. I finally got to hear "Losing Touch" and it surely did not disappoint! My friends and I were throwing glowstix all night and they kept landing on the stage, at one point it even hit Brandon!!

    Chairlift opened and they were pretty decent but it just wasnt a good pairing for the killers, their music is a little too slow. That being said I enjoyed a fair amount of their set, my friend and I both picked up on hints of Depeche Mode, The Cure and Sigur Ros in their styles. Chairlift later joined the stage with the killers and they did a terrific cover of "Under The Milky Way". The male singer of Chairlift has an incredibly deep and powerful voice, I dont know why he didnt sing at all during their set. But once he opened his mouth and started singing the entire crowd around me kind of gasped a little because it was so good.

    My body is sore and im so wiped, as I usually am after a Killers show. Best and most importantly of all is I got to watch them with all of my friends who have never seen them before. So I enjoyed watching their reactions once a song started or whenever Brandon did something cute (which was a lot).

    I went to a Vivian Girls show this evening. They're playing a mixture of stuff from their first album, their Surf's Up EP, and their second album these days. The club where the show was held is known for its atrocious sound set-up, but the music that the Vivian Girls make is much for forgiving for fuzzy feedback than some other bands, I suppose.

    It was a very light audience, although the kids that were there were hardcore. They had quite the circle pit going on.

    The band were adorable, as is to be expected, with their normal instrument-swapping antics. They even received a love note from an audience member, which they proceeded to read aloud. However, I couldn't help but feel that it was a little bit of a lower energy show than what I've seen them do before.

    Just got back from Moby at House of Blues.

    I dunno. Part was good, part was really not. I think a lot of it had to do with the crowd, who were fucking terrible. I was probably the youngest person there or at least appeared to be, as the median age seemed to be...38 or so. It seemed like a lot of people were hoping to relive their rave days of yesteryear, and failed miserably at it.

    The beginning of the set was pretty slow, I think the tracks were mainly new material, and then he played some older stuff off of Play. There was a good selection from Play actually, which was nice because I sort of went to this on a whim after picking up a ticket off of Craigslist a couple hours before the show and was hoping to hear at least some songs I knew. He played all of the hits from most records, so I knew a good chunk of the songs. The middle of the set was pretty uneven tempo wise, but the songs weren't bad. Just kind of boring. During the encore they played a 15 minute version of Honey with War Pigs sandwiched in the middle which was fun but odd, and then closed with some super happy uplifting house/jungle number that was just way too fast to do anything close to what you could call dancing to it. There was a number of songs that were from his rave days which is good I suppose, it kept the setlist varied but they didn't really fit entirely. It was just irritating having older and not terribly slim people trying to get down with each other, people practically almost fucking next to me, and girls dressed like fucking whores running around everywhere. Also nobody would shut the fuck up. Would I see Moby again? Probably not. Even if he was at Coachella? Ehhhhhh. Am I going to go to House of Blues again? No. I know most of it is that it is San Diego locals being retarded, but when Moby stopped to mention that he was donating all the money from his California shows to a domestic violence charity I understood why some guys would want to knock these girls around. They were fucking annoying. I guess it was worth the $20 I spent on the ticket, which was almost half of face, so I suppose that is a win. Anyway. I need to go shower and wash off all of the lame. I don't think they make water hot enough.

    Your review is disappointing. I'm going tonight I hope I have a different experience.

    I am one of those 38 year olds nostalgaic about the old rave days, so we clearly have a different perspective. That last song sounds like his song that is in the Guiness Book of World Records for most beats per minute. I forget what it's called.

    Edit: "Thousand" climaxes at 1,015 beats per minute, making it the fastest single ever.

    weird that a 44 year old artist who has been making music for 20+ years might have a crowd consisting of some "older" fans

    I would say that the peak of Moby's mainstream success was with Play which came out 10 years ago. Either way I didn't think his music would be enjoyed by the crowd that was there. Older people enjoying a show, wonderful. Older people tragically trying to remain hip and throwing the rock hands every 5 minutes (which was a variation of the rock hands, hang ten and "I love you" in sign language), painfully embarrassing.

    Call me ageist if you want, I really dont care. The crowd was terrible.

    The only Moby album I've ever really enjoyed, and the only one I own, is "Everything is Wrong"

    I had a similar 'goofy old people' experience when i saw Our Lady Peace right after "Spiritual Machines" came out in 2000. I was 18, really excited to finally see them, and was frankly shocked to the see the entire crowd was a bunch of frumpy people in their 40 and 50 wearing hawaiian shirts and yelling dumb shit like it was the first time they had been out of the house on a weeknight in 15 years

    The song is Feeling So Real. The Moby one, I mean. I thought it was a great closer, but I enjoy Raining Again more.

    So I saw A Place To Bury Strangers last night. Let me start off by saying I am not a fan of MBV or any other "shoe gaze." That being said, APTBS were incredible. I wanted to get the full effect so I decided to watch from the very very front. There were only about 30 people in the audience so this wasn't a problem.
    APTBS is probably the loudest show I've been to. One of my earplugs slipped out of my ear for 2 seconds and it felt like my brain was being stabbed. APTBS also had very effective lighting...something I didn't expect. I also chatted with the lead singer for a bit after the show. He was weird.

    Here are a couple shitty cell phone pics:

    I don't care enough to call you anything over it, just stating that he's a slightly older artist that's been around a while, so it wouldn't surprise me that much.

    I saw The Butthole Surfers the other night. It was probably one of the weirdest and most disturbing shows I have ever seen. I highly suggest going if they come near you.

    Also, I am seeing APTBS next Tuesday.

    Moby does have a song called "Thousand" that he performs in the way described by Brandon and Justin and that is (or at least was) in the Guiness Book as Al said. It is incredibly lame to see live.

    Damn.

    Don't have time for a full review now but Vivian Girls were great last night at Modified. 40 minute set; decent sized crowd. Some sound issues on stage but out in the audience it sounded good. The Pods opened; I need to find out more about them. The first band was locals The Chandails, who were even better than the last time I saw them, which is saying something.

    I'm pretty excited about seeing them in a couple of weeks. Peaches is opening, so the weirdness quotient should be even higher.



    Also, I saw the U2 360 show at Cowboys Stadium the night before last. The show/spectacle was better than I expected and they played "The Unforgettable Fire", which was great. There were a couple of awkward moments when Bono dedicated "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" to Tiger Woods(??) and then effusively praised President Bush during the middle of "One" (to wild redneck applause!). The venue was HORRIBLE. The sound at the new stadium is absolutely the worst I've ever experienced. Muse was just a garbled wall of noise and U2 wasn't much better. Oh, and we paid $30+fees to park in mud and the stadium only sells Miller Light. I will not be returning.

    I had no idea about the Moby song. He didn't play it at either of the NY shows.


    I'll pass the Chandails compliment over to my friend who is the guitarist, John.

    Those are really good pictures. I want to undergo a similar project, but my camera is just too cheap for good low-light photos (or I just don't know how to use it properly.)

    I didn't get any pics at Moby last night, but I was disappointed. But for very different reasons than Brandon. I think the LA crowd was completely different than the SD crowd. Yeah there were some old people, but there were just as many scenesters/hipsters. I guess that's to be expected in LA though. I kind of wish there were more people getting into it, but the crowd was kind of dead and as usual for most LA shows people wouldn't shut up. His set had a few highlights, but for the most part it was pretty slow and uninspired. I think Moby couldn't quite get energy out of his audience. He's definitely a performer that feeds off the crowd and there wasn't much goin' on out there. And . . . I miss the days where he didn't talk. Goodness the man can ramble.

    It wasn't a bad show. It just wasn't that good. His singers are really good.

    I'm so bummed that I'm missing them around me...Butthole Surfers are one of the few bands that I've wanted to see for a really long time that I've never had an opportunity....

    This weekend, Butthole Surfers are playing LA and Gogol Bordello are playing in Anaheim, but I can't see either show...I will be in Yosemite for a few days, so it is a worthy excuse, but bummed nonetheless.

    I had high hopes. The last time I saw him play live was in probably 2000 or so and he was fantastic. Totally high energy show and the crowd was awesome. Oh well. It was still fun.
