Guess who was at the railing of the Bloc Party gig? ♥

Hint: Yep, still me :D

Fantastic gig. You know it's going to be great when the second song they play is your absolute favourite BP song and that third song is that other one you really really liked. I had a perfect spot, right between Kele (= leadsinger) and Gordon (=bassist) and it was just awesome.

- concerts (apparently I went to 26 gigs this year)
- meeting friends, graduation and other stuff

Even though the support act (DE KIFT!) had already started by the time I got in (the line was pure horror) I managed to get to second row :D

De Kift was again very good. Bought their latest album. Too bad they aren't really a band you should put in frond of Franz Ferdinand. De Kift = all about the lyrics and weird dancing, so as a support act that aren't for everyone.

The concert was fantastic. Really like the sound of the new songs. Too bad it as all a bit short.

Afterwards I saw [livejournal.com profile] moonshape, I seem to have a knack for discovering her at gigs.

Also, Alex looks a bit like Arthur, doesn't he?
ringlunatic: (Sigur Rós)
Sigur Rós, yesterday. I was way too early and it was cold outside and a spider fell in my book and blah blah blah. Either way: I managed to get right in front, slightly left from Jónsi. I bought myself a t-shirt and then the waiting started. I had a nice chat with the people around me.

The support act was a Icelandic band called For A Minor Reflection and I loved them. Bought their album afterwards and they all signed it for me and were just generally very nice people.

More waiting. And then: SIGUR RÓS.

01 Svefn g englar
02 Ný batterí
03 Fljótavik
04 Við spilum endalaust
05 Hoppípolla
06 Með blóðnasir
07 Inní mér syngur vitleysingur
08 E-bow
09 Sæglópur
10 Festival
11 Hafsól
12 Gobbledigook (with the guys from For A Minor Reflection on drums)
13 All alright
14 Popplagið

It was just magical. Jónsi's voice is insane. At the end of Svefn g englar he held this really high note for a really long time. They played Ný batterí, which is my current favourite Sigur Rós song, so ZOMGYESPLEASE! Við spilum endalaust makes me really happy as well.

Hoppípolla getting into Með blóðnasir with the singing was awesome as well. Then the songs that came after this was just one HUGE highlight for me. E-Bow, Sæglópur, Festival (when a girl right behind me fainted. It was ridiculously hot in the venue as long as you weren't first row), Hafsól (which I taped, see behind the cut) and then Gobbledigook, which until then I hadn't really liked live, but I thought it was fantastic when I saw it with my own eyes.

Then the encore. All Alright was magical. Jónsi did something with his hands, while singing, which was one of the most beautiful things ever.

Popplagið blew my mind. SO GOOD. I loved everything about it and then the big confetti canon at end: AWESOMENESS. I've taped this one as well.

So, all in all: what a fantastic gig! I love this band SO much. It felt really surreal to hear such a large about of pretty :D
