It’s Not You It’s the E(lcohol) Talking

My post last night about Soulwax being the best concert ever was written in a somewhat drunken and hasty state. Now that time has passed and I am sober and more lucid, I want to add some additional details (in lazy list form)…

  • The opening DJs (JDH and Dave P weren’t as spectacular as I hoped (the tracklist on their first mix includes stuff by The Knife, Gossip, Joakim, Ellen Allien & Apparat, Vitalic, The Rapture, and others), but I gotta give ’em major props for playing “In the Morning” by Junior Boys and “Around the World” by Daft Punk. They also started to play the Emperor Machine remix of Royksopp’s “What Else Is There?” but got cut off when…
  • Muscles took the stage. This guy is some crazy Aussie but he was awesome. I would have to say that he was the best opening act that I didn’t know of prior to the show next to The Presets who opened for Ladytron at Neumos last year. The only thing that was annoying about him was how often he yelled “Whoo.”

So for the record, I still think that Soulwax was the best concert I’ve been to (next to Daft Punk at Coachella). It wasn’t really the alcohol talking!
