Anyone go? How was it for you?
Mercer's voice was on good form right?
a lot more than I though they would
New stuff sounded good
I was on the raised floor. stood right near the bar right. it was pretty bad for first three songs and got better. and then i moved more central and the sound improved. seemed like they were pumping the sound dead center of the room.
it did feel quite short but it was a decent length set. surprised how little of the new album they played (4 songs or was it more?)
did you all see the piece I ran yesterday interviewing the band members? (Yes that was Richard Swift on keys!) http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4144596-the-shins--introducing-the-band
Yeah, to be fair, they did pack quite a lot in what was a 1 hr main set.
it didn't feel like that many.
Yeah the sound could have been better, but the only time this really impacted on my enjoyment was when I couldn't make out what the hell he was saying between songs. Simple Song was SOOOOO GOOD!
