LCD Sound System with Guests

Afternoon drizzle and rumors of lingering mud from Massive Attack's show had Anna Grabowski wary of sporting runners for LCD Soundsystem's performance. Yet sunshine and frisbees were part of show with special guest's Holy Ghost! in the Malkin Bowl May 31st, 2010.

I first noticed the clouds parting when a frisbee wizzed by my head and Brooklyn’s Holy Ghost! took the stage to enchant listeners to their brand of new wave dance music.

Witnessing the performance by Bramwell Tovey as conductor throughout the scheduled listing of music by the classical masters, Bach, Stravinsky, Mozart and Haydn; was a spectacular display of synchronicity between players and the conductor.

Four Tet

Reviewer and UK expat Sam Carter gets friendly with the eclectic Four Tet crowd at the Biltmore Cabaret, February 24th. Find out the name of their new album and Sam's concert review conclusion...

I entered the Biltmore at nine to find the place almost deserted. Though concerned for my fellow countrymen Nathan Fake and Keiren Hebden (aka Four Tet); DJing commenced fashionably late with the opening act taking the stage when the room was splitting at the seams.
