smirking half-hawk

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, concert review

Opening band: Black Mountain?
At least 40 years too late to be interesting. Slow, and with more funk than I am
able to properly appreciate. A. Described as "Concrete Blond hearkening back to Led
Zeppelin. Too much wah-wah. "

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Energy! My socks were rocked. We got Red Right Hand,
The Weeping Song, Stagger Lee and a charged Deanna. We didn't get Time Jesum
Transeuntum, which did not surprise me.

Toronto crowds still suck. We are, as a city, afraid that someone cooler than us is
watching, and waiting to laugh at us. We don't dance, barely move, and don't make
much noise.
