The LA Philharmonic & the Decemberists
Man, I can't even imagine how he felt having his music backed with an orchestra like they did last night at the Hollywood bowl. It was such a great show. No, it was spectacular. I don't even have words for it. I had such high hopes for Band of Horses and no expectations for Andrew Bird or the Decemberists. The Band of Horses was a complete let down and the latter 2 were pretty mind-blowing. What Andrew does on stage by himself to layer his music (looping after 4 or 8 time and then starting another loop only to loop that one again and start another...does this make sense?) made me really respect him as a musician.
I heart the LA Philharmonic.
