I wonder if the perpetrators of 911 ate hummus as they exploded into each tower, which later burnt and collapsed. Building 7 collapsed too thereafter, with no hummus pilots. I wonder what it was like *INSIDE wtc for the people who held a JOB* there.

Awesome show but seriously ... can you people ever SHUT THE FUCK UP?! All around me, YAP YAP YAP YAP YAP about NOTHING!

NYC = hipsters = talk all the goddamn time.

Why can't all shows be like we're in Kansas? You just know they don't do that shit there.

are you seriously reminiscing about kansas?

I'm not even sure hummus is AVAILABLE in Kansas!

Beautiful show.

awesome show? hmmm..ok show. he should perform inside a seated theater. wtf have lights on audience instead of himself for 95% of show and have completely meaningless images that in no way inform his music and have the quality of changing the channel via remote to rhythm of music?

definitely some beautiful moments. he was singing his guts. but encore and lots of new songs were limp in accompanying music. reworking of songs into the medley he devised for encore took away all the inspiration of originals like the way fiery furnaces always ruin their recorded songs live...

governor's island feels like a prison backyard with the flood lights. i guess the younger kids don't mind cattle-like treatment. we are living in a post 9-11 world and they don't know any other way of life...

Also think guys eyes was in there

Song For Ariel=Guys Eyes. It was a song that Noah wrote and performed solo under the other title before it was recorded by AC.

the bass blew me away... literally, what the fuck was up with that bass?

You're dumb. First of all, not all the images were even tangible things. But not everything was "pointless". During Song For Ariel, a song that's about doing what his "body wants to", the images were layered with people having sex... slow motion had a shark attack in slow motion. Those are the only two examples I can think of right now... but why does every image need to "inform the music"? Not everyone is sitting there picking apart every aspect of the show... some people are just enjoying it like normal, non-assholes.

Did you seriously compare him to the Fiery Furnaces? GTFO. Plus, he's been playing that version of I Think I Can since before anyone knew what that song was. I also personally really like that version of chores.

All in all I thought the show was fun... Governor's Island is a pretty annoying venue, I'll admit, but it was still a good show from Panda.

@ 12:44.

you're right that images don't matter at a concert, unless, of course, that's all you get to see. i feel like i paid 25$ to watch a shitty movie movie with panda bear singing over it shrouded in darkness or subsumed in smoke. with that kind of entertainment the cost for a film with accompanying live performance should've been max 12$, not the other way around.

this was the best show of the year duh

It's not Panda's fault for the price of the show. Blame that on Bowery Presents. Second of all, it's not like the content of Panda's recent live shows are something of mystery. If you'd read at least one review or watched something on youtube then you would've known what you were in for. Stop fucking complaining. It's your own fault if you had a bad time.

It is absolutely Panda's fault for the price of the show. Sure Bowery has a price in mind, but I guarantee if Panda Bear stepped in and said he thinks that is too much and requested a lower ticket price it would have happened.

Posted by Anonymous | September 12, 2010 2:41 PM

Maybe the tickets wouldn't have been so much if a full security force wasn't hired to throw out all our food and drinks.

this show wasnt even that expensive. +including the ferry+ the other bands that were pretty fun, this night was a deal.

Posted by Anonymous | September 12, 2010 4:37 PM

@4:14 - I agree. I'm getting real sick and tired of the "talkers" at these shows! I paid to hear Panda Bear, not to hear the crowd relentlessly chit-chating!!

can we just agree that this show was great a move on?

Posted by Anonymous | September 12, 2010 8:57 PM

This show was really great. There are still scumbags who linger around on this shitty website and troll about every single show, it should basically be considered spam at this point. Move along.

The show was so expensive because Panda Bear's guarantee is something like $50,000. No hyperbole.

Posted by Anonymous | September 13, 2010 9:13 AM

What's the sample he uses for Song For Ariel... it sounds so familiar...

i have a hard time believing he gets 50k a show. maybe animal collective, but jesus. i'd think more 10-20k, which is still a lot.

wasn't Last Night at the Jetty after Ponytail?
