You are done dude. Old and tired too.

Nina Nastasia has such a gorgeous voice, and beautiful songs to boot.

Love Fever Ray, but I would have to pick
Nina Nastasia she is amazing.

It also didn't hurt to watch, discuss and drink beers with Bill Callahan(smog) the whole time either.

Langhorne probably won't be doing Whiplash tonight. Sorry.

What time did Fever Ray go on? I'm going tonight

Fever Ray went on around 9:55pm I believe and played for about an hour.....

I don't think she played an encore...I started walking out as she walked off the stage.

Great visuals and lights...hope she comes back soon!

mobius band dull? you should give them another shot if you're going to the show anyway...they can be totally entrancing and energetic.
