SXSW 2010: A Sunny Day in Glasgow at Red 7 (3/17/10)
I only wound up at this show because my friend dragged me to see them. But I'm glad she did. After the fluffy bliss of Real Estate this was a nice contrast. Set in a near pitch black room filled with people chatting and beer, the atmosphere worked perfectly with the bands music. It was nice to see a shoegaze band that actually seemed to be having fun making their music. You could tell the band was dying to use some sort of light machine during the set. The two female vocalists added some nice new flare to the sound and even with the sound problems that came from the stage too often, the band still put on a good show. Maybe not the best show of SXSW, but still a good one to be sure.
