Sigur Ros @ 1st Bank
Anyone that hasn’t seen Sigur Ros before must prepare themselves for a different kind of show. There is a delayed-gratification that comes after wading through some of their slower songs. It’s akin to a symphony that enchants the audience at just the right time.
I heard a man yelling for, “ONE MORE!,” after only seven or eight songs. How about ten more, bud? Sigur Ros tickets run $50-$60, they’re not short-changing anyone.
The only slip-up that I could detect was a drum loop that was off by a beat and was never corrected. I noticed the bass player looking around at his bandmates as if to say,”What is going on?” Luckily, frontman Jonsi was un-phased, and carried the band to the big finish. All was forgotten.

Love Sigur Ros. Wrote a whole novel listening to their songs mostly. Can’t think of anything else that gets me feeling so sentimentally unsentimental.
