Comments : Tonight was the first show of a 10-date tour. None of us really knew what to expect of this live collaboration. The result was a very powerful performance. Both bands were together on stage and alternately played each other's songs. The show started with a great version of Hint's "100% White Puzzle". A pretty good evening, except for a couple of crowd-surfers and the naked, dancing dude who climbed on stage during EZ3kiel's "Versus".
Comments : It was a nice surprise to learn that tonight's show would be a free concert held at an artist's loft (although we never quite figured out what kind of "art" was made there). The atmosphere at the venue was cool and despite the long delays and the smoke-saturated air, it was a fun evening. The show was good and the encore amazing.
Comments : Psychic TV is one of my favorite bands, so despite the jetlag and my profound dislike of the general ambiance at the Nuits Sonores festival (body search at the entry, no camera policy etc.), I travelled to Lyon to see them again. I must admit I was slightly disappointed with the setlist. Although it included a great cover of The Velvet Underground's "Foggy Notion", I found it less exciting than the last time I saw them in Paris 5 years ago. Still, Gen seemed to be in better spirits than at last month's TG tour. Overall, a really great show as expected.

Comments : Several of my friends who were there with me called tonight's concert the show of the year. I would not go this far, but still a nice one. Will & his band, featuring Jim White on the drums, played for almost 2 hours.

Comments : Tonight's concert was rescheduled from September. Although very good, tonight's concert was not the best Mogwai show I have seen. Highlights of the evening were a really great version of "Mogwai Fear Satan" and excellent encores "Like Herod" and "Batcat".
