Pavement
9/26/10
Tabernacle, Atlanta, GA

Pavement was in a great mood for their Atlanta show after the Maryland crowd the night before apparently “sucked.” Stephen Malkmus was in guitar god mode, Bob Nastanovich was awesome as always, and I had a great spot up front by the rail, stage Malkmus (thanks to Kenny and I sacking up). A decent-length set, two encores and plenty of frumpy, middle-aged sing-a-longs later, I felt the long drive back home to Charlotte (via a stop over in Greenville, SC) was completely worth it to see one of my favorite bands ever for my second (last?) time.

All of my photos from the night can be found here.

Cat’s Cradle, Carrboro, NC

The second show of a fun concert weekend in RDU. During Washed Out’s brief set, he tried to get the crowd into it as much as he could, even asking people to sing “the easiest chorus ever” to “New Theory” – “Da da da da da daaa” – while his white boy dancing came off as endearing. Beach House were awesome and smokey and nearly every one of their songs off Teen Dream came off as anthems in the small club setting. Really fun show.

Hilariously, Jim James kept referring to the venue as “Cocoa Booth” and riffing on the it being the birthplace of chocolate. We eventually got a great spot in the general admission pit and thankfully the battery for my Canon S90 didn’t crap out until the end of the show, despite the battery indicator flashing 5 minutes into the show.  Overall, I was really happy with the shots I was able to get.
