That’s PSB, not PBS. Public Service Broadcasting, not Pet Shop Boys. Although they too were a smart English duo.
Mssrs Willgoose and Wrigglesworth informed, educated and entertained. Charming yet propulsive stuff indeed.
Not to be missed.
As I noted below, this was my 7th or 8th encounter with Cloud Cult. However, it was the first that was An Evening With Cloud Cult.
There was a seated, acoustic set…
…and there was a standing, electric set…
Not a whole lot to say about this one. Solid. Rock.
Alejando Escovedo and Susan Voelz. I think this was “Pale Blue Eyes”.
Alejandro and the band.
Peter Buck in one of the fortunate moments he was not singing.
Best show of the year so far? Probably this one.
Guitar magician William Tyler opened and guested with Califone on “A Thin Skin Of Bullfight Dust” and “Frosted Tips.”
Lincoln Hall had posted a sign saying “at the request of the performers, no photography.” Since Califone retweeted this one, I assume it was okay.
Even though this happened a while ago, PP’s new album is due soon and the buzz is loud, so I’ll throw it on here about six weeks late.
Singer Meredith Graves is a force of nature.
If you want to see them, you won’t have to block to much time out on your calendar. Maybe they’ll get the set list up to 20 minutes for the next time. But then again, one of the comments I read after this show said something to the effect of “14 minutes? They played for 4 minutes too long for it to be a true punk show.” True punks know the score, apparently.
I’m skritching again. Actually, I never stopped. I just stopped posting on tumblr. But here are some words on an excellent show I saw 2 1/2 months ago now..
