I’m not going till Saturday March 28th at 12pm (City Center), so this setlist of Bjork’s first of eight concerts in the New York area (she lives in Brooklyn so I am guessing that’s why we get the honor), is an ultimately cribsheet though when you are playing eight out of nine songs off your new album, a cribsheet might not be entirely necessarily.
Working her way through her ninth and one of her best albums, the recently released Vulnicara, what I know about the show is what I read in the tabs: the Post, NYT and USA Today all raved, though, reading between the lines a little, Bjork and her 15 member orchestra may have been a little snoozy at times. “Black Lake”, in the middle of the first set, appears to be the keeper, it certainly was on the album.
I have made a Spotify list of the older material in the second set though, as I am sure you are aware, Bjork didn’t allow Vulnerica to be streamed so it isn’t hear. You should consider buying it. The oldies choices seem a little random, it is Bjork so a line like “you and I have become corpses” could come from any song and be directed to any one. Though it is a serious please to hear “Come To Me”. None are what you might consider fan favorites.
If you didn’t get a tix to see one of these gigs hie thee to stubhub right now… meanwhile this is what you are missing…
