Comments : At first, seeing Mogwai the same week as Godspeed sounded like a fantastic plan. In reality, it was not the brightest idea and the fact that Martin Bulloch did not play on the North-American tour did not help. Not a bad show per se, but I found the setlist weak and disappointing, as well as the band lacking emotion on stage. The barriers between the stage and the audience with security guards taking their jobs a bit too seriously also hampered my spirits. Oh, well.
