lets talk about it
Hope they play as little from their new album as possible. it's not a bad album, just my least favourite
Though I do think the new one is comparatively their weakest for a while. Which just means it's merely pretty good.
Anyway here's a recent setlist:
then half the new album (half is fine) and then another 6 or 7 tracks that are a mix of older stuff. especially me and monkey seem to be the only staples from the older stuff. when they played green man they did down by the river and over the ocean among others. would love to hear words, laser beam, walk you out, anon and about 100 others
nowhere close to the south west. pity i won't be catching them on this tour.
when they played over the ocean in london last time my heart stopped. i am guessing playing waltz was a short-term thing, too. apart from that, and shame, a lot of the songs are the same they've been playing for years (aside from the new album, obviously). used to love silver rider and violent past live, they seem to have dropped those.
they played silver rider at green man. that into down by the river was lovely.
i could watch them forever. wonder if they will ever age at all.
(Thats How You Sing) Amazing Grace
Over The Ocean
Joan Of Arc
Walk You Out
Last Snowstorm Of The Year
Just Make It Stop
Do You Know How To Waltz?
Not been to many gigs at all this year for one reason or another, so can't wait for this. Never seen them before and only got into them in the last 18 months or so.
Setlists are looking varied and strong, plus Low have never been anything but wonderful.
Edinburgh next week
if it isn't sold out and I remember to buy a ticket
i've never seen them at headline show before, just at ATP. pretty excited.
never seen them before and im sure at queens hall itll be pretty sublime. pretty happy with these setlists
think this will be my 14th
Somewhere between 25 and 30
Next show = ATP
seen them six times at festivals.
Not seen them since the Drums and Guns tour. (Which was a seated gig at the City Varieties and a fight broke out on the seats in front!!)
Saw them in Manchester earlier in the year and they were great
...but £22 a ticket for the Bru is a bit steep.
I'll go if there are still tickets after I get paid at t'end of the week but reckon it will have sold out by then as only a handful left on We Got Tickets.
Would love to hear DYKHTW but that would be purely selfish. Favourite run of albums for me is Long Division to Secret Name so a few oldies thrown in would be good. Fourth time I've seen them in Nottingham, the first being back in 1995 so they've been pretty good to us Nott's folk!
But remember it was upstairs in a pub called the Old Angel. These incredibly tender and fragile songs fighting over the noise of the disinterested and uninitiated bar crawlers . Alan was lost in his own world and Mimi concentrating hard to keep the slow beat. Zac just looked bored! I doubt I'll ever see a more intense show in front of about 50 people.
i saw ISIS there but...fucking hell.
thought about cambridge... but can't do it
Highlights being Pissing (as usual), Words, Nothing But Heart and When I Go Deaf.
Best I've seen them. Fourth time for up thread discussion.
Just thought they seemed really relaxed, musically tight (I think their bass player has now fully settled in post-Zak), great song choices (starting with Words). I thought the material from the last two albums sounded really good live too, actually. I'd say that was the best time I'd seen them other than the first time (Union Chapel 2003).
Quite enjoyed Barbarossa too.
I've never seen them in a standing venue (Barbican x2 and RFH) and I think they played a touch heavier for it (or just the smaller space made it feel like that).
i'd be happy with that tonight
good work - thanks
they're usually about 75% the same at the minimum
have seen Low a lot - they're playing and sounding much better than they ever have done. But as someone for whom the last two albums have done relatively little, there's a massively selfish part of me for which it's a patient waiting game for the bits that outshine the rest by a long way for me.
Plus their oldies rotation is a bit standard these days. Would kill for https://archive.org/details/Low2005-02-17.Cambridge.UK.flacf again. But they're a fucking priceless, peerless and valuable band, never fail to flatten me.
.... other than Dirty 3. First saw Low '96/'97, nice to see they have gone from a band where it was acceptable to chatter in the room when they were playing - particularly remember seeing them at Dingwalls in the early days and all you could hear was the chatter. Now it's a reverential hush, and you get the feeling that if there was any chatter the culprit would be lynched. Favourite gig? probably at the Brudenell on the C'mon tour. Most memorable moment? Alan wanging his guitar at the crowd and nearly decapitating an indie kid at End Of the Rd.
i figured it was the lesser of two evils, given that i was stopping myself coughing
one of the best times ive seen them. took someone for their first low gig too and was interesting that she found the newer stuff to be better on first listen. maybe i'm too much of an indie prick to fully appreciate it. incredible overall though.
I think the newer stuff sounds MUCH better live.
Loved it. Wanted old stuff too but absolutely loved Just Make It Stop and Holy Ghost. Wished it had gone on for longer, stupid 10pm curfew.
Great sign above the bar: no crowd surfing.
thought there was a decent amount of old stuff. the intro was enough to cover that anyway :) i love that they'll still take a request though, even if mine was ignored.
Yes, was 90 minutes. 10pm just feels too early for the lights to come back on. I still live in hope that one day they'll play my perennial request (Violence).
for some reason that was in my head a bit ago (the song, not just violence).
mine was medicine & magazines
He seemed quite emotional,or was it just me? Amazing show though. Over the ocean at, the end, just left me wanting more. Only thing missing tonight was Clarence White, thought that was a staple these days.
Words, Majesty, Canada, Plastic Cup, On My Own, Holy Ghost, Monkey, Waiting, Just Make It Stop, Nothing But Heart, In The Drugs, Last Snowstorm, Pissing, Murderer, Especially Me **** Stay (cover), Over The Ocean
Seen them 3 times. Best time was the first in Hove 2 years ago. Played lazy, words, just like Christmas and amazing grace in the set. Was pretty great. They were stunning at green man earlier in the year as well.
They played words at the RFH last year
That's my favorite Low song.
It actually worked this time I just got a iTunes Card Code to my amazement it worked! Giveaway is going on here http://freeitunesforever.com
First time seeing them and thought they were brilliant.
Perfect venue for them, sound was crystal and the crowd was polite despite dropping cups every 2 mins that could be heard echoing throughout the whole venue.
Really enjoyed the gig though. Anybody have a setlist? Think it differed a bit from the others on setlist.fm as they played Nightingale (which I was delighted at) and Clarence White which didn't seem to get an outing on previous nights.
However, in addition to the cups the people in front of us insisted that instead of clapping they'd try to sound like a siren of sorts.
in no particular order http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/low/2013/the-queens-hall-edinburgh-scotland-53c4eb7d.html
Haven't seen them at the brudenell before - though I think they've played their last few Leeds dates there - but it seemed like the perfect venue. (MUCH better than City Varieties or the yes-you-can-hear-the-trains-going-over-Cockpit )
and as I said a fight broke out on the row in front.
I think it was a good set from what I remember.
Amazed at how different they were last night.
The Manchester gig was brilliant too, but quite restrained. Last night they were intense, raw, loud and absolutely fantastic. Even the quieter songs crackled and the louder ones rocked like crazy.
