Spiritualized was amazing tonight!! Unfortunately I didn't have all that much energy on account of not sleeping well the past week, but they managed to keep me engaged and entertained for the complete 2 and a half hours!
Things I did and didn't like
They opened with the new single which I just personally don't like, it did sounds better live, but I still did not enjoy it very much. I started to almost regret not going home to bed, then they played an amazing version of "Lord Let It Rain On Me" and completely changed my mind. From there they played songs from all over their catalog, and I started to notice everyone around me seemed even more tired than myself, especially the band. They are not a lively bunch on stage, even the tambourine shaking, pretty backup singers (that are usually there to add energy) don't do much. I don't think any of them said a word to the crowd the entire night, but what they lack in energy they make up in performance of the material. This is a band that just gets up there doesn't fuck around and plays the songs. The crowd finally got back into it after the band played a great 7 or 8 minute instrumental jam (that I didn't recognize) which segued into "Ladies and Gentlemen..." The crowd cheered as soon as the sample came on, and it was good, but I couldn't help but think the acoustic version they did at Coachella in 08 was better. Most of the crowd left after that and the set kinda started to get an almost psychedelic gospel vibe to it. More people started to leave because the pacing seemed a bit strange at this point, I remember thinking, "Do they really need three epic ballads in a row?" They drew everyone back in at the end with "Come Together". The best part of tonight by far was the encore, everyone that left early fucked up. So if you read this and go to one of these shows, don't do the same. They came back out to play "Electricity" which got what few people that had stayed moving again, and then blended "Electricity" seamlessly into "Cop Shoot Cop..." which absolutely fucking kills live. Overall, pretty good show that I would strongly recommend for even the casual fan. I hope you and your crowd are more energized than I was
That Spiritualized show sounds amazing. Can't wait to see them later this month.
In other news HOLY FUCK. GO SEE DIRTY GHOSTS. Just saw this band at the Soda Bar with a crowd of like 15 people and they KILLED it. I wish I was in a pit of 500 because they were so good. Hopefully these guys blow up in the next few months because they seriously rock. Awesome show
5/9 - Suishou No Fune (水晶の舟) - The Empty Gallery - HK

Excited to see these Leonard Cohen dates but not sure how I feel about seeing him in an arena though. I'm envious of the cities where the venue is a theatre.
