The opening act was mediocre and performed longer then Iron and Wine. When he finally got on stage, he seemed grumpy that everyone didn’t LOVE the opening act- sorry, they were just meh. They seemed overly melancholy, with few lyrics of merit to prop their dreary act up on. Their attempts at putting tension in their music was ill placed and poorly timed. No one does dissonance like Iron wine though, and that’s who we came to hear. I loved the music he and the band performed, it was brilliant and masterfully poetic as always. It just seemed short and he seemed irritated at the audience. Granted, the audience was late, and wouldn’t sit the f down, maybe I’d be grumpy too. .
Fantastic concert. Love the lyrics, singing, interaction with audience, great percussionist, tight band. Opening band Om was difficult to listen to, base way too loud, uncomfortable and ruined hearing for opening of Iron and Wine.
