I really like Turin Brakes' The Optimist LP. It's very, very pretty.

Ok, went to this show last night, first, let me say that Promowest Pavilion in Columbus is one of the best venues in the midwest. Much better than Riverbend in Cincy. Anyway, Turin Brakes were dissapointing in that they only played about 6 or 7 songs. I really like them, wish they would have played longer.
David Gray was very good, he was more high energy than I expected too and his drummer never dissapoints, hes nuts! Amongst a great 2 hour set were all DGs hits, as well as a cover of a Randy Newman song Baltimore, that was excellent. Anyone else catch this show or others this summer?

I saw DG supported by Turin Brakes in December at Earls Court, London. DG was AMAZING! I wasn't expecting him to have much of a stage presence you know, what with just being a guy with a guitar singing mainly slow songs but as soon as he walked onto the stage you knew it. He was FANTASTIC and Clune (the drummer) is really funny!
The only thing that spoiled the show for me was Turin Brakes. They are one of the most godawful bands I've ever heard thier entire set sounded like 'whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinge whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinge whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine whiiiiiiiiiiiiinge' aside from Painkiller which is a half decent song.
But yeah David Gray was very very very good!

And after tomorrow, you shall have my review. Of course, I'm hoping I'll be able to see the stage. And drunk people won't spill beer on me. I wonder if my hatred of Summerfest includes things held on the Summerfest grounds when Summerfest isn't even going on. I guess I'll find out...

Nah, actually, I really am excited.

Oops, I guess I didn't come through in a very timely fashion with my review. I really enjoyed the Milwaukee show. I agree with a lot of what's been posted about David - I enjoyed him live a lot more than I thought I would. For me, hearing the songs live with the band (and the crazy drummer!) was better than hearing the album versions. The drummer ripped off his shirt at the end of the show - does he do that a lot? I was both slightly traumatized and amused.

The show was pretty long - he played for over 2 hours. He complimented us on Lake Michigan. (The show was on the Summerfest grounds.) At the end of "Please Forgive Me," he leapt up from the piano and ran around the stage, bouncing and engaging the crowd. Too bad there was no heart to do a lap around.

I really enjoyed Turin Brakes, too. Apparently this was only their 7th show in the U.S. The lead singer told us that Milwaukee was the most beautiful place they've been so far, and I was like, "Where have they been taking you poor boys?!" The guitar player was wearing a Packers shirt. I was a tiny bit bored on some of the slower songs I didn't know, but Pain Killer was fabulous (of course) I enjoyed the slower songs that I did know, and I also really liked the new song they played... Five Mile? Anyway. Good stuff.

I've always liked david gray but im getting REALLY into his music at the moment and I'm in love with BE MINE...

From the very first moment I saw you
That's when I knew
All the dreams I held in my heart
Had suddenly come true
Knock me over stone cold sober
Not a thing I could say or do
'Cos baby when I'm walking with you now
My eyes are so wide
Like you reached right into my head
And turned on the light inside
Turning on the light
Inside my mind hey

Come on baby it's all right
Sunday Monday day or night
Written blue on white it's plain to see
That rainy shiny night or day
What's the difference anyway
Baby till your heart belongs to me

If I had some influence girl
With the powers that be
I'd have them fire that arrow at you
Like they fired it right at me
And maybe when your heart and soul are burning
You might see
That everytime I'm talking with you
It's always over too soon
That everyday feels so incomplete
Till you walk into the room
Say the word now girl
I'll jump that moon hey

Come on baby it's ok
Rainy shiny night or day
There's nothing in the way now
Don't you see
Winter summer day or night
Centigrade or fahrenheit
Baby till your heart belongs to me
Thursday Friday short or long
When you got a love so strong
How can it be wrong now mercy me
Jumpin' Jesus holy cow !
What's the difference anyhow
Baby till your heart belongs to me
