It's beautiful, not that we'd expect anything else.
According to Facebook looks like they'll mostly be playing new stuff, exciting!
Hope the barstaff keep it down, still a bit concerned about the venue.
My house mate has been and played in a few things at VU before, she said it's quite a good venue...
But it's big and the bar is set under an arch to the side - when I saw Neko Case there in May someone emptied the bottle bins at a particularly quiet moment, and a lot of people were stood under the arch chatting throughout... would hope that people will be a bit more respectful if they've paid £15 to go to a fairly quiet gig.
Hopefully that's not the case tomorrow then, yeah...
I'm going to it:
I've never been to anything like it before, very exciting.
Ace. Modern dance with a an ambient soundtrack - that's a Friday night out right there
Trying to guess what 80s sci-fi film he's talking about so cryptically could be a fun game. Except it's definitely Blade Runner, innit.
Chances of another album then? Always assumed it was just a one off
so hopefully that'll be a new full length. Disappointed I can't make it to the gig, hopefully they'll be back post-release
Thought the cover of Spirit Ditch with Adam on Mark Linkous-esque vocal duties was a nice touch.
Awvfts covering spirit ditch? Sounds great. Seeing them in reading tonight, looking forward to it more now.
I really, really hope there's some recorded version of this out there somewhere...
Do kind of wish it'd been in a seated venue like LSO St Luke's or something to eliminate all the noise of people chatting (to be fair it was mostly two girls in front of me who got told to shut up pretty sharpish) and people dropping/smashing bottles at the bar, but other than that I guess the venue worked well. Great view and great sound.
I think standing worked fine really, and great sound for the most part. Nice to hear some new songs as well, very tempted to try and get down for one of the ballet performances. I had to dash for the last train just before the encore, bit gutted to miss out on that.
Did anyone else see Einaudi bumbling around too?! He kept bumping into me and my friends.
seeing them tomorrow
what is the line-up like live? is there a string section?
A Belgian string quintet.
