My Bloody Valentine

On my way back to stage one from Brian Jonestown Massacre, ATP staffers were passing out a specific type of earplug chosen by My Bloody Valentine for distribution at their performance. Dope. After much fanfare, and a loooot of stage set-up and waiting, My Bloody Valentine entered the stage to chants of "MBV!" around 12:40 AM (Sunday night, Monday morning).

One word. Devastating.

My Bloody Valentine

My Bloody Valentine's thoroughly enjoyable live show closely resembles their output: dreamy vocals by both Kevin & Belinda lay low in the mix with melody tucked under layers upon dense hunks of fuzz. Visuals matched their sonic aesthetic in both the serene (projectons behind them) and confrontational (the blinding, pulsing light show). The band mostly stuck to their rhythm parts and played along with sampled leads, which was evident throughout the whole set but came unglued for a ever-so-brief moment when drummer Colm Ó Cíosóig fell slightly behind a pre-recorded hi-hat (I would have chalked it up to random echo if I didn't see his cringe-y reaction).

Call me a sadist, but I dared to pull my ear plugs out a few times... just to get a sense of what they were really doing. It didn't last long, and to be perfectly frank, it was hard to even make out anything without some sort of protection. That said, if you are heading to see them Monday or Tuesday, I will reiterate.... make sure you have some earplugs! You'll enjoy the show more and you're gonna fucking need 'em to endure their noisy 20-odd minute climax.

It really was an amazing show. Maybe not the best I've ever seen, but definitely one of the most intense.

Musically, they totally exceeded my expectations. Yeah there were lots of tape loops and the vocals were buried waaay in the mix, but I was too busy having my face melted off to care too much. I could literally feel the soundwaves slapping my face. Brutally gorgeous in all the right ways. It also helped that the main room at Kutsher's had some of the best acoustics I've ever heard -- I'm terrified about what will happen at Roseland, but I hope it holds up.

BTW, I can't stress the earplug advice enough. I was using the MBV-approved pair for almost the entire show and my ears still feel like they're stuffed with wads of cotton. Oh well... small price to pay.

good to hear about the earplugs.

any earplugs will help and make you hear the music BETTER! people don't seem to realize this or think they wont have problems. that'll last until you get a ringing in your ears that will never go away.

i learned my lesson but unfortunately i've been listening to ringing 24/7 for 3 years straight now and am roughly 10-15% deaf in my R/L ears.

Fantastic set. I thought I was ready for the 20 minute wall-of-sound finale, but nothing can really prepare you for that kind of thing.

Posted by Anonymous | September 22, 2008 8:37 PM

Yeah, nothing can prepare you for people hitting their instruments randomly for 20 minutes, at volumes that cause physical pain. It was so fucking brilliant! I had no idea losing my hearing could be so much fun! Fucking assholes.

"I don't remember them playing "Blown A Wish" or "Sue Is Fine".

I don't either. As I remembered it, they went right from Soon to Feed me with your kiss to you made me reailze. Other than those two that were not played I think the setlist is right.

I don't think they dub the drums at all. On a few of the bootlegs you can hear false starts and hear exactly what the recorded loops are. They are generally the repeated riffs like the one in I Only Said that goes eeeoowee-eeeooowee. I heard them rehearsing that at about 2 yesterday and they were practicing starting the song in sync with the recording. They would need a fifth member to play that part if they were to play it live.

Posted by Raindog | September 22, 2008 8:47 PM

7:01 - i guess you play drums...perfectly....everytime.
to play rhythm to this wash of bliss is an admirable duty to me.

7:01 - really tough to play along to a pre-recorded hi hat pattern, with the other loops going on and insane stage volume. considering he does wild fills every other bar and his performance was otherwise perfect, shut the fuck up.

MBV played a way faster and with much more low end heavy drum rolls than I expected. Unfortunately, the sound mixer was way over his head and was bugging out over Dinosaur JR's set (no vocals for J Mascis 1st 1 1/2 songs) and was not much better for MBV. But the performances were both f*cking incredible!

My biggest peeve about this whole weekend was the lack of any crowd energy by 97% of the peeps that made the trip. Although there was a small swelling of moshing and crowdsurfing for Dinosaur JR., everyone looked half-dead and bored for MBV, even though their set was rare, amazing and powerful. All you schmos stroking your beard and making immature snide comments would be so much better served focusing your mind and more importantly your body on the music instead of your ego. No hands in the air, no movement, no visible enjoyment. And to see the entire black-rimmed glasses contingent push and shove to get to the front row only to leave after the 3rd song, you guys (and gals) are killing the music, killing it. The disposable nature of music and culture (and social networking matrices) in the last 10 years has seemed rot the heart of great rock shows, audience participation.

Roseland was kind of lame. The crowd was extremely non grateful and quiet. The noise fest at the end blew something (bass amp?) and it got kind of quiet towards the end and everyone wasn't sure if it was over. Seemed like a somewhat short set. I heard zero vocals on 80% the songs. I guess being close to the front is always a risk for that. Learn how to fill the front with vocals mr. FOH. Roseland, never seen a great show there. This was close, but I call it just good. What did shields say about the PA at the end? That it sucked knob?

I can still feel that twenty minute noise session pounding in my head. the concept was dope and I understand that they are supposed to be one of loudest live bands and they need to maintain there image and all but it's so loud you can't really distinguish one song from the next, just overwhelming fuzz. I can't say it wasn't worth it. Oh, and the free earplugs were totally crap. Bring your own if you have em.

MBV blew the f'in' roof off of Roseland last night! They played a great set of tunes from "Loveless" and "Isn't Anything," only slowing down here and there with what may have been some unfamiliar new material. Bilinda and Kevin stood up there like understated, godlike statues bringing sonic death down upon our heads while Debbie and Colm headbanged like animals. Vocals were of course low in the mix but you could pull them out of the miasma.

I was shocked at the decent sound quality! Even the "noise holocaust" of the extended "you made me realise" sounded great. I was standing on the left side near the middle, right underneath the dropped ceiling/mezzanine. The ear plugs they provided were ok but I used my own. No decernable hearing damage after the show or today. Whew!

I highly recommend sticking around through the entire sonic explosion at the end. Hold yr arms up and feel the air move your skin - and the bass vibrate yer innards! All in all, a very satisfying experience. I'd see 'em again (for cheaper ticket price).

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2008 9:06 AM

BTW the thunderous noise of the extended "You Made Me Realise" lasted for exactly 12 minutes. They also had cool, minimal visuals projecting onto the screen behind them.

i am a big fan of the loud rock music. mogwai was insane at atp. i am a big fan of mbv. they sounded terrible. too loud. painful. i walked out.

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2008 9:16 AM

all i have to say is that compared to the atp performance last night completely completely pales in comparison. I'm considering trying to go tonight again. The fucking crowd last night was ridiculous. I was standing very close to the front and there were two incredibly intoxicated/tripping people pushing everyone up here the entire time. People in front were dancing, it's not like they were standing there with their arms crossed, but these idiots were completely ruining the performance. All the people in front of me kept kissing each other and raising their arms as well and I can't even imagine what kevin must have though of the front row. He was visibly pissed when the amps blew - three of them did - his and then bilinda's. I'm just happy I saw them sunday because i am really really bummed about last night's show.

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2008 9:33 AM

Ok used my own plugs (hearos) and didnt notice it being louder than a normal loud show. I bet Motorhead was just as loud and damaging as this show. Indie fans dont go to metal shows for the most part so that is maybe where the problem comes in. But even Animal Collective which was stupid loug I think last year at Webster Hall was as loud as this. And FYI the loudest show by far in recent years that I attended was Tool at City Center and that was measured at 140 dB's according to the sound board guy.

and the "noise holocaust" reminded me of Demons set at the Knit during no fun fest. Overall the last part was by far the best part of the night, though Im not a huge MBV fan. I rate the show pretty good.

My 3 favorite shows this year:

No Fun Fest at the Knit
Midsummer Party
Back to School party

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2008 9:35 AM

Potentially I over-hyped the show given I waited to see MBV for 10 years, but I was underwhelmed by quality (although overwhelmed by volume). Not sure if it was the band's fault entirely. I think the vocals were completely drowned out by the sound people. Not that one would expect vocals to dominate, but I found myself singing the songs in my head just to incorporate the melody over the crushing guitars.

Still, very glad I went. There were certainly moments where I was blown away by how great of a band they are.

so you guys think that the vocals were "too low in the mix" and the sound was "too loud"... at a my bloody valentine show? did you even know what you were buying tickets for?

the show was totally incredible, despite some blown amps and poorly run visuals. MBV completely fulfilled all of the legend that has built up around them over the past two decades. i agree the audience was a little difficult/trashed, and didn't give the band nearly as much vocal appreciation as they ought to have.

oh yeah the technical difficulties, glad you mentioned them. I hope they iron them out, like the windows prompt screen I think 3 times, in between the projections? i mean come on, that should not happen.

also the PA did cut out several times, not only during MBV, but also during the opening bands, I mean come on guys, invest in some new cables or something that dont have to be held together with duct tape?

on the positive side, security was relatively mellow. and it was packed! I think they do capacity including the balcony, however the balcony was closed, so all the people were on the floor. maybe they closed the balcony because otherwise it would not be a sell out? I dont know, doesnt make sense. the side stage was bar area though Im not sure if you needed a ticket for that or if it was VIP area or what the story was.

Last night's show wasn't perfect, what with the technical difficulties of a few blown amps and some flubbed projection cues, but the performance was incredible. For Roseland, the sound was good and 9:55 is exactly right in pointing out that the vocal mix matched the albums. An incredible, powerful show, and yes, bring your own earplugs.

And respect must be given to the cute T-shirt girl who had to face all of us rabid fans all by her lonesome. Be nice tonight, kids—it isn't her fault that she works solo and you have to wait your turn.

Last night's show at Roseland was AMAZING. We stood behind the soundman - where the good sound is. Everything was super clear, except the vocals (which is obviously to be expected & wonderful that way). The crowd in the back was surprisingly nice. But wear your earplugs. We pulled ours out a bit to catch some of the higher frequencies.
So, if you want good sound & not-too-annoying of a crowd, stand near the mixer.
Possibly my top show EVER... next to Love at Warsaw, Underworld at Glasto, Radiohead at Red Rocks, Bjork at Coney Island...

Last night was a fantastic show. The wall of noise did not disappoint after 16 years.

The Blue Hearos (33bdz) earplugs at your local Duane Reade will do the trick: stop the pain (2 people near me sans earplugs went down last night) AND allow you to hear subtleties in the sound.

Posted by kenyon | September 23, 2008 4:16 PM

i was at roseland last night (9/22), and i have to say, i'm a little startled by the negative comments here. for my money, MBV's set was overwhelming, physically and emotionally, in a way that seems "beyond" a mere rock concert, in the same way that coltrane's highest work is somehow "beyond" music. i'm still feeling the emotional effects many hours later. physical, not so much. like everyone else sane on this board, i strongly recommend plugs to anyone attending tonight. saw dino jr. last year downtown without plugs and was deaf for three days. last night was MUCH louder, and the only damage i notice is a slight hissing in my left ear. FWIW, i'd say the three best shows i've seen this year are MBV last night, sigur ros at the grand ballroom, and i dunno, maybe emmylou harris at town hall. last night's openers were Le Volume Courbe (wicked cute) and Wounded Knee (lose the flute!). stop being so goddamned jaded, NYC hipsters! take it from a 52-year-old who still knows how to have fun.

Posted by tim serbo | September 23, 2008 4:20 PM

"am i crazy, or were the prices on merch 25% more at Roseland than at ATP?"

that's probably because roseland takes a cut out of merch sales.

"Listen to all of you complain about low vocals, and pointless noise jams. Have any of you actually listented to the records? That is how they've always sounded, live and on record."

Haha, my thoughts exactly. For MBV, I think the LAST thing I'm worrying about are the vocals low in the mix. Otherwise, glad there's been good feedback (no pun intended).

"stop being so goddamned jaded, NYC hipsters!"

Haha, what do you expect when people rate My Morning Jacket and Wolf Parade as being the best shows they've seen all year? Ugh! Talk about snoozers.

Posted by Paul | September 23, 2008 5:02 PM

Paul - exactly. Plus, as good as I'm sure Spritualized were at Terminal Five, Terminal Five makes Roselands look good. Anyone who actually likes Spiritualized (or just music in general) would've gone to Williamsburg and presumably not a My Morning Jacket show as well.

I'm looking extremely forward to tonight and hope that the crowd can be remotely decent and grateful, etc. I suspect it won't all matter after a certain point.

Posted by J | September 23, 2008 5:23 PM

after seeing MBV at ATP the show at Roseland was a bit of a let down. how come the sound at roseland sucks so much?
I guess I am just feeling a bit spoiled after APT because the sound was so amazing. The APT show was mind blowing.

dash451, if you happen to read this, i'd like you to know that i would kill--or pay a good price--for a copy of your DAT. i have nothing to trade, alas, not being a member of the taping community, but i would happily work out a fair price with you. leave a comment here if you're interested in a sale. thanks.

none mentioned mogwai drummer's health.... I think it's more relevant than a festival of middle class middle aged people in skinny jeans...

Though the Aragon's sound sucks, MBV made it amazing.
