FRI. (10/8)Gorillaz @ Madison Square Garden

<Amazing!  Best show (by ONE act) of the last 2 years!  There are many reviews (plus pics) on the show here and here.  I feel like I have something to say about the event but….I didn’t have the Plastic Beach album before I saw the set so my point of reference was wayyy off because they performed almost the whole LP.

Along with my joints: “Dirty Harry”, “Clint Eastwood”, “Kids with Guns” they dug in the crates to play some of the classic pieces.

The sound was incredible, they vibe fun and the passion was mega-high.  Check this out to get a taste.  They did an intimate 45 min set the day before MSG show at Letterman’s Sullivan Theater.

VERY memorable show!  -AV>

Artist/Event = 5/5       Location = 4.0/5

* UPDATE:  Plastic Beach = Album of the Year!  Not 1 mediocre track (ok – maybe 1 or 2…Bobby Womack and Mos Def..I’m looking at you! NOT on ‘Stylo’ though).  Brilliant!

2nd wind: Faces & Names
