We got Brothers last night so I was happy.

The new songs aren't as strong as the Lost in the Dream songs, but they sounded great last night anyway.

I was very happy all night. 😁

Oh man, Brothers is the one song I haven't gotten that I wanted the three times I've seen them. Nice.

They closed with a really nice new arrangement of In Reverse. It was great.

The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding

Saw the band here in Chicago last night - amazing show. The band is incredible, and Adam's guitar tones and playing are incredibly adventurous and cathartic. I could feel a crackle of energy from the crowd around me whenever the dissonant threads of a song started to coalesce. The light show was fantastic - one minute they're in a dark vacuum of space and time, then the song shifts w the lights and it looks like they're on a Solid Gold soundstage. Suited the music so fucking well.
The songs from the new album DELIVER in a live setting. The old hits come of as way bigger hits than I thought they were. Red Eyes and Under the Pressure fucking SLAYED. They take the quiet, dissonant passages of Pressure to a new level, so much so that when that epic groove slams back in it was utter euphoria.
Sight lines at the Aragon (a beautiful and fun venue) suck, especially if you're of average height surrounded by midwestern Scandinavian descendants who tower over your 5 ft 9 inch frame like Thor over Antman. Dudes out here are TALL. Great time nonetheless. I'd do it all exactly the same again if I could.

ETA: They're the best band in the world right now, for my money. Pain is my Jam.

Me too. Can't wait. I'll probably catch them at Laneway too but I want a proper full set.

I've also got tickets to see them. Because I forgot I'm going to Laneway haha. Oh well, hopefully they'll clash with someone and it will cut off one choice.

I often do sideshows for artists even though I see them at Laneway. This year it's Slowdive and The War on Drugs. The third artist I badly want to see is Wolf Alice and they're not doing sideshows, so I'm definitely covered if there are clashes.

Seeing them twice won't be a problem.
