In a sense, that was just what the doctor ordered, as basic as I’m likely to get. It felt good to see this band back to some no frills performance. But that set was awfully short. And they really went easy with their usually great live songs. I still think their performance three years ago was better. But it felt good anyway. Sure beats going to see Air in Versailles which would have been a perfect storm of past and present failures for me.

They mostly went with classics from their second record, with a few from the third — most interesting rhythmically as far as I’m concerned — and a couple new ones from their latest record. I wish they had performed “this dust makes that mud”, but no luck again. My take in a couple of words: too short. The set and the songs.
