Two shows?! :jealous:

The Housemate had a delayed response to the show we saw. The minute it was over he turned to me and said "I liked the Frames better than Damien Rice." I of course loved the Frames but thought that Damien Rice was brilliant and a bit of a genius. Then the other day he said that Damien's peformance had been haunting him and the more he listens to the record the more he remembers the show and gets it. He said it was too intense to take in all at once and he didn't like all the distorted sounds at first but now those songs have become his favorites. Interesting how that guy just kind of gets under your skin and you can't quite shake it.

Here's a link to some videos and live performances I stumbled across--really good stuff:

Having seen the frames do a full, headlining performance in the past, I have to say that I think I like them better....although Damien is quite amazing. Glen is just such a charismatic lead singer, and surprisingly accessible - he talked to any fan who wanted to say something to him at the shows. Very little matches Damien's glasto '03 performance though....

I guess I see the Frames as a really great fun show, a party, while I see Damien as a more complex artist and his shows are more like theatre to me. More introspective, more to think about. Hard to compare the two really because they do such different things.

I'm watching this KCRW video now and Damien's playing Radiohead's Pyramid Song saying it's a song he wished he'd written. It is one of my top 3 favorite Radiohead songs.

I just started listening to the KCRW show too.
All great musicians love pyramid song... (megan, you seeing this? "pyramid song RULES!")

Yeah, it makes me sad that the frames didn't really get to display everything they have in the short time opening. You're right that Damien does seem far more introspective. I saw the frames in London once though, at a chapel, actually. I definitely saw a more serious side - although a joke does get thrown in there to dispel the seriousness quite often. It's just a bit odd b/c the frames have been around for ages and Damien would open for them. Yes, I suppose it's impossible to compare! They both have their reasons for being so amazing.

Damien is now going on and on about Glen and The Frames. It IS weird that they would open for Damien, having been around longer than Damien. He certainly seems in awe of them. And he's playing one the best Frames songs ever and one I reallly wanted to hear live. (I won't spoil the surprise for you).

I love this song. I also really wanted to hear 'headlong' again.
I really liked all that Damien said about them.

Damien looked rather cute with that shaved head of his.

I need to buy my Music Midtown tickets before Tuesday. *must remember!*
