Show Me Music

South at The Bottleneck

Last Friday, I went to see South at The Bottleneck. I was excited to see them at such a small venue, considering the rest of their tour was going to be playing huge rooms as support for The Strokes. When I showed up (right before the South set), there were only about 50 people in the room, which was fine by me (no fighting to get a spot, no freakishly tall guy standing in front of me). It’s great because when only 50 people show up to see a band, all 50 of them love the band. South certainly felt the love and returned the feeling by truly having a great time. The highlight of the show was their performance of Bizarre Love Triangle when they all gathered around the keyboards and each played a different part. The only problem during the show was the fact that they were working on the monitors between every song. I guess their sound guys weren’t used to playing such a small empty room.

  1. Hey, Jared. Spending some quality time on the site, enjoying it. Tried to play the “South at the Bottleneck” mp3s and got an error saying that the disk was full. Just wanted to let you know.

    I have been subjecting my family to fairly large doses of Ween lately (“The Mollusk”, in particular) and Manu Chao, who is a French ex-punk born of Spanish parents who was one of the main acts at Lollapalooza and totally blew the crowd away with sheer, manic energy. Some ska, some reggae, some hardcore, some very substantial Latino flavor, a lot of politics, fabulous candy for the ears. The album “Radio Bemba Sound System” is the one of choice as it highlights the energy of the live show.

    Soul Coughing’s latest is another one that has really caught my ear of late.

    Cheers!
    Rich
