The Cure / Kendrick Lamar / Passion Pit
Opening with a sluggish "Plainsong," the band - led, as always, by founder Robert Smith - scanned tentative, with a chunky and worn-looking Smith seeming particularly unhappy. Yet the Cure founder emoted the follow-up "Pictures of You," and by the time the band hit "Lullaby," the entire group was more animated. Momentum established, the Cure could do no wrong.Austin's 2013 ACL Festival kicked off on Friday (10/4), its first day of two consecutive weekends, and continued on Saturday (10/5). Day 2 gave us sets from The Cure, Kendrick Lamar, Wilco, Passion Pit, Haim and more. Pictures from the second day of the fest are in this post, and there's another set at BV Austin.
Loosely dividing the concert into thirds, the band spent the first part on hits both massive and missed, from the jangly "High" and moody "Lovesong" to the funky "The Walk" and brooding "Fascination Street." A buoyant "Just Like Heaven" indicated the band isn't burned out on its biggest hit yet. [Austin Chronicle]
