edit: dangit. quoting for new page:

RIXX wrote:that was fucking great. I got to MSG around 5:30 and got a pretty much perfect spot 4-5 people back from the front, I wouldn't want to be any closer tbh

i don't think i've ever seen thom happier in the 5 or so times i've seen them. he was joking around and being silly the entire time, it was so great. he literally jumped and did a guitar leg kick in the air during the bends

he did this super enthusiastic waving thing during the "cheering and waving" lyric in myxomatosis, it was hilarious

also before the tourist thom and jonny pantomimed taking each other's photograph and I was like wtf? and then they played the Tourist and it clicked, i wonder if they've always done taht

during weird fishes there was this one point when the song slowed down and I could hear all the ppl in the GA area gently singing "weeird fiishess" and it kinda made me laugh, what a strange thing for a bucnch of people to be emoting. weird fishes

they seemd to have remixed the gloaming, it was interesting but i like the previous higher energy live arrangement better

the surprise of the night for me was LOTUS FLOWER. i LOVE the changes they made to that song. you physically feel the bass so much when it starts and the lights were worked perfectly. what a fun song, it killed. bodysnatchers too

also speaking of lights, i know they've always done trippy lights for the guitar freakout of paranoid android but they really stepped with this tour. it took me to the same place that the ending of speed racer took me, like epileptic nirvana

i know the crowd always cheers at the no surprises "bring down the govt / they don't speak for us" part but obv it's more relevant these days and it felt really cathartic to have the whole entire MSG stadium cheering at that line

i think those are all my stray thoughts. relly fun night. i met a lot of cool people. i am gonna try and go again this week. damn my back hurts though from standing 7 hours...maybe i wont get GA again..


yeah i really enjoyed reading that rixx :)

ahhh can't wait to see them

Msg is just such a terrible venue for music you must have been very close

I saw them there in 2003 and it was very much like being at the county Fair with Radiohead in the background

blow out was listed as an alternate on last nights setlist so it seems like they may bust that one out a couple more times on this tour.
