The Eels - 5.14.14 @ The Crescent Ballroom
Of course they add Philly headlining show while I'm away I just can't see them sounding decent in an arena...

Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 8:30 pm
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
Well that was the best musical performance I've ever seen. Such an amazing band.
Last night's show was solid, their first in AZ since '99. Crowd was ok, and it seemed that during Mladic the guitars were tuned too low, but it was adjusted later in the show.
The only negative I have to say is purely selfish: I haven't seen them perform anything from Slow Riot the 4 times I've seen them. Maybe next time!
Well they won't be performing tonight since Efrim and Sophie (although they're nominated) are here rehearsing for "We have an Anchor" (http://www.bam.org/music/2013/we-have-an-anchor) but you can catch Canada's Polaris Music that will include live performances from Metric, METZ, Purity Ring, Colin Stetson, A Tribe Called Red, Whitehorse, Zaki Ibrahim, and Young Galaxy @ 8pm est here: http://www.youtube.com/user/polarismusicprize
