For Parisian visionaries Moon and Le Scouarnec (REM: Supernatural Superserious; Take-Away Shows), the three night residency they recorded at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg in early 2009 presents itself as a 45-minute modern, urban noir thriller through the electrifying streets of New York. In grainy black and white, the show unfolds. The band make their way through a rain-washed Manhattan as ‘I’m Jim Morrison, I’m Dead’ hovers like a commuter’s soundtrack in the background. 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…

I was going to say "Same here," but it looks like it's playing in Toronto. I have no idea how I missed that.

Holy.

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.
