Oh Beloved Gig Memory 0
I recall going to see Liars at All Tomorrows Parties a few years ago, playing late on the Friday night. They opened with Scissor and its haunting intro of delicately vocal harmonies. There was a sizable crowd ready for the chorus explosion which everyone knew was imminent. As the song progressed I overheard a couple behind me talking about how confused they were that a crowd like this would be interested in gentle music like what they were hearing. Confused, I turned around to see a couple who must have been at least fifty years of age and I’m guessing from the conversation had never heard of Liars before. I explained to them that appearances can be deceptive and calmly told them that mere seconds from now, this crowd of people were about to become a blur of animated movement. Skeptically, they looked around the audience at the static crowd beholding the angelic singing. As the moment approached, I casually started counting down for them from a count of 8. 8.. 7.. 6.. 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1..
BOOM! The crowd didn’t disappoint.
