Great show @ Radio City Music Hall. The openers were Eluvium and Low. Eluvium was kind of nothing special. It was a "solo piano performance." I would have enjoyed his set more if it was an actual band. Not that I don't like piano performances, I have just seen to much of them. Low was a little better. I love them on CD. I am just getting into the slowcore genre but so far all of the artist I've listened to are really great. In terms of a live performance it is just decent. I enjoyed them but they kind of got boring after a little while. EITS of course was great. The sound was incredibly loud during the fast parts, they really knew how to abuse the Radio City sound system! One thing worth noting is that even at a seated theater as extravagant as Radio City, a lot of the crowd was really energetic! That is the problem I have with many post-rock/orchestral shows, the crowd barely moves. But EITS fans actually know how to enjoy themselves. Overall, great night. Not really in the mood to go into more detail so I'll just leave it at this for now.

But...One small complaint: Why do people think it is necessary to take pictures with your shitty cell phone cameras from all the way up on the 3rd mezzanine at Radio City? High quality pit shots will be up on Brooklynvegan, there is no need for that!

It looks like we basically got the same show. They just switched up the order of a few songs.

What irritates me more are the folks that try and film the whole damn show. Especially when they hold up their cameras in my line of sight. Why would you pay to go see a band just to hold a camera up the whole time? It just seems like it would make the show much less enjoyable.
