Not So Silent Night
Made it to Live 105's Not So Silent Night this year (finally!) on Friday
night. Show was great! We missed the local band and Taking Back Sunday,
but got there in time to catch a great set from Muse. The Killers had
some serious sound issues - it was all kick drum! They sounded much
better from outside than they did inside the pavilion - I couldn't stand
listening to them, even with my ear plugs in. Franz Ferdinand was
outstanding - very high energy. There was an amazing impromptu set from
Lyrics Born - it's always very impressive when a rapper manages to sound
better live than they do produced. Modest Mouse was disappointing. MM
just couldn't get their act together - huge delays between each song,
dragging the show to a halt. I would've loved to have heard some of their
less mainstream stuff, but they didn't seem to get to it before I got
bored and left.
Now I've just got to wade through the thousands of
new email messages I have - and that's just at work!
