. . . Granada Theater last night.
MGMT were the reason we went and we were not disappointed. I would rather see them in a smaller venue. The mics were hot for a few of the songs, and the lead singer’s voice was slightly hoarse. Also, they did not play “Youth” and “The Kids”, which are strong tracks off Oracular Spectacular (Red Ink/Columbia). “The Handshake”:
We were not impressed with the constantly over-rated and hyped-up YEASAYER, so we left after 2 or 3 songs. Also, I didn’t realize there would be hippies dancing. Where was the peyote and dream catchers?
