Somehow I ended up with a Death Cab for Cutie tour t-shirt tonight.
I’m finally at home after seeing the The Cribs, Franz Ferdinand and Death Cab For Cutie at the Tweeter Center in Camden, NJ.
I can’t really speak for the Cribs (who had the thankless job of opening) or for Franz Ferdinand, who did a great job live, even with their wanktastic group introduction. However, the Death Cab For Cutie part of the show was just awesome. They played mostly from the newest album,
Plans - with the notable exceptions of opening with The New Year and later playing The Sound of Settling from Transatlanticism. Also, We Laugh Indoors from The Photo Album. We sang along to Crooked Teeth, Soul Meets Body, and I Will Follow You Into The Dark (what a couples song). Unlike the sometimes moodiness of Plans, the show was surprisingly upbeat (no Brothers on a Hotel Bed or Someday You Will Be Loved)…and Death Cab left the stage with the mostly female audience wanting more and a promise to see us again in the fall. Hell, I’d follow them around the country if all of their shows weren’t sold out.
Should I just mention that the audience was mostly female–suburban artgirls with plastic rimmed glasses, wearing old navy and their feminist boyfriends?
Pics to follow later…
