The Music Slut


Goldfrapp @ Radio City Music Hall: Shiny & Pastel

It goes without saying that when attending a show at NYC's legendary midtown venue, you're usually in for something genuinely spectacular. Last night's Goldfrapp performance was no exception to this unwritten rule. The band's glorious seventy minute set focused heavily on their 2008 melodic yet subdued release, Seventh Tree, with some minor toe dipping into earlier efforts. As anticipated, loudest cheers of the evening were awarded to Black Cherry's 'Strict Machine' & Supernature's 'Ooh La La'. With a catalog that ranges from the ethereal to the exhilarating, I was slightly tentative in Goldfrapp's ability to pull of a cohesive gig at this point in their career. Luckily, Alison & the gang erased those fears by outrageously surpassing my expectations. Photos by Cerdsp. Visit Goldfrapp on MySpace.

you shouldn't be allowed to play RCMH while wearing cargo shorts, though.

It was a perfect show. Alison wove a spell that didn't let up from "Utopia" on. Two suggetsions--she should introduce the musicians--"we got lovely band" is very nice but they played their hearts out, they should be named. And Will should take a bow.

...apparently Will is sitting out for this leg of the tour.

re the setlist you got it right except for one thing -- reverse the order of 'satin chic' and 'you never know.'

i am 100% certain of this because i sat next to the mix board and occasionally looked over at the songs on the taped up setlist printout during the show. then after the show i asked for the printout, which the mix guys were nice enough to give to me. i have it if anyone wants it let me know.
