This powerful scene can be seen HERE.
A Mogwai gig is an experience of the senses, and “Burning” comes as close to the real thing as one could ever hope. As the opening quote to the bands debut album Young Team, a recording of a Norwegian fan reading a review of the band, suggests: “this music is bigger than words, wider than pictures; if the stars had a sound, they would sound like this.” Yes, that they would…

Fuck. Yes. So pumped.
Unfortunately I go home from the Boston area on Aug 28 so I'll miss that. But I'll catch the Coheed/Circa/TDH show in Pittsburgh so I guess that's ok.
