Loop, road trip

May 4th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

Last Thursday night I rushed home, fed the kitties, waited for Adam (who was stuck in traffic) then got in the car with Greg N, and we drove to Athens, GA to see Loop play at the Georgia Theatre. I have actually never been to the Georgia Theatre, so I didn’t know what to expect, I knew it burnt down and had been rebuilt. But, that was it. It was nice, not great, red velvet curtains, concrete floor to stand on, a small version of the CocaCola Roxy? But, not many people seemed there.

We ate next door at the Branded Butcher, a weird farm to table style restaurant, with interesting sounding food, but odd service and a little pricey for Athens, but it was not crowded, and no drunk frats boys milling about. The fried cauliflower was good, but the sauce was to sweet for me, the chicken liver pate was good, but once again to sweet, same with the bread, good but sweet. Almost everything was a savory sweet pairing, not a big hit with me.

ti were good, loud driving and still have that Pink Floyd edge I just catch. I like them, just never think about going to see them.

A few moments of saying hi to people then Loop came on.

A wall of noise and sound, underpinned by melody. Beautiful, cacophonous and stunning. A fairly short set, about an hour and a brief encore with “Mothersky” by Can. I took my earplugs out once, and it was overwhelming, but even with ear plugs my whole body felt the music, was part of the sound. There was nothing uncontrolled about Loop, it was all controlled and finessed, but amazing.

Grand Budapest Hotel

May 3rd, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

Tonight I went and saw The Grand Budapest Hotel, the latest Wes Anderson movie. I love Wes Anderson, not for his clever story lines, his amazing use of actors, but the colours in his movies. I love his use of colour to explain a mood or feeling. The way the curtains compliment the drapes, but at the same time clash, the candy pink of the chocolate boxes against the powder blue uniforms.
