RSS icon Comments on Sigur Ros @ Benaroya Hall


I admit that I missed Amiina's backup vocals, strings, and charmingness a little bit, but hearing Sigur Ros's stripped-down rockish take on their material was plenty awesome.

Agreed all around.

I liked David's review better, why did you delete it?

@4: I was curious if anybody who wasn't wise to Sigur Ros would head to the show and assume the opener was actually the real deal, since they sounded like a band that only listened to Sigur Ros. Plus, the tickets/venue didn't say anything about an opening band.

David, I agree that Parachutes were awful. I fell asleep twice during their set. But I have to correct you... their lyrics were actually in English. I wrote down something about trees and wind before zonking out the second time.

That is fucking hilarious.

More reviews of opening bands please!

1. Opening band: Sigur Also. Avoid.

2. Sigur Ros played Benaroya on the last tour (in addition to the Paramount show) with Amiina backing.

while we're at it w/r/t that zombie post: not all of sigur ros's lyrics are in "hopelandic" -- many are in Icelandic and one is in English -- and the band isn't "under 30".

I kind of pity that David jerk, he really made a colossal ass of himself with that review. It's really sad that such an uppity ignorant asshole took a seat from someone who would have really enjoyed that (amazing) show.

David, your a fucking idiot. Punch yourself in the face.

And yes, from Wikipedia, they're not under 30:

Jon Birgisson - 33
Georg Holm - 32
Kjartan Sveinsson - 30
Orri Pall Dyrason - 31

Yea, good times all around with David's review :) it's from the 'I didn't go to the show but I need to sound like I know stuff' school.
