Johnny Marr / Big Fredia / Kurt Vile at FFF Fest, 11/8/2013

Marr and his backing trio played half a dozen tunes from his excellent new album The Messenger with confidence, precision, and plenty of rock & roll energy. Even then, "The Right Thing Right," "The Crack Up," "Upstarts," and "Generate! Generate!" earned a muted response. This crowd of 20-to-40-somethings came to hear the Smiths catalog and politely tolerated tunes as strong but not as familiar as those that influenced a generation.

Marr thus treated that audience to superb renditions of "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before," "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," and "Bigmouth Strikes Again," ending, of course, with the guitar orgy of "How Soon is Now?" and a cover of "I Fought the Law" by way of the Clash. - [The Austin Chronicle]
