Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks @ Ancienne Belgique, Brussels

13 06 2008

I will have to start by apologising for not attending the first performance by General Mindy, and for only catching the last 3 songs from Jeffrey Lewis, which were quite interesting and will definitely try to get my hands on his album.

Have you ever felt like you are in a huge rehearsal room, with some people just banging pots and pans around and it all just sounds perfect, well that was the concert.

I did not manage to get my hands on the set list but from what I’ve heard it all went down around Pig Lib, Face the Truth, the new album Real Emotional Trash and going only to first on the encore to sing Jenny and the Ess-Dog.

For me, without a shadow of a doubt the best music was Water and a Seat, just brilliant.

Saturday there is more with the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

I am sorry for the quality of the picture but that is what you get when you are trying to use something that is not yours, in this case a FinePix Z10 fd by Fuji (This sounded like a fairly nice excuse).

See you Sunday
