Must See: Belle And Sebastian At Radio City June 2015

Play For Today

Play For Today

I’ve had Belle And Sebastian at Radio City on June 10th on my radar for ages now but have held off because

1. It is three days after Governors Ball and I might be a little rock and rolled for a week or so and

2. I am not as big a fan of Belle And Sebastian as I might be. Listening to their newbie Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance, I think it is OK. I gave it a “B” after one listen and several listens later I kinda keep to it, though the lead off single “Nobody’s Empire” is really good as is “Play For Today”. When they rock out they sound tweeer than when they don’t.

3.  It’s a Wednesday.

But I kept on eyeballing it, I hadn’t seen the band since 1998 at the Supper Club so I am ready for a revisit and also I love Radio City Music Hall the acoustic’s are great,  the place is gorgeous, the seats are comfortable  It’s a Wednesday.

What made me decide to risk it is

1. It isn’t sold out, so I could go to MSG and pick up a ticket for $40 and

2. The opening acts, Real Estate and Diarrhea Planet. Real Estate are boring live but a half hour set might handle that problem and really, they’re a band I always feel I kinda miss out on for some reason. I once saw one of the members smoking pot which has nothing to do with anything of course but I thought I’d share. Diarrhea Planet really must change their name. I am sure I’m not the only guy who simply assumed they’re a metalcore band. Well, they aren’t and their  EP late last year was excellent so that is that.

A Must See (ps, I think I need to find a name for my must see column… any suggestions?)
