Saturday night, I attended a concert given by Air, a group I raved about previously
Their performance was remarkable -- instrumental songs were riffed upon enough to stay interesting, the simple four-column stage lights kept surprising me with their smoky shapes and heart-speeding flashes, digital beeps met acoustic strums, and "Cherry Blossom Girl," sung seemingly by a chorus of three or four women, was performed by electronically modulating the voice of one of Air's two male group members.
My only disappointment was that a theremin wasn't used; however, the audience screamed and hooted when a short French man turned a knob to make a drone sound like that instrument. Huge audience response, for a barely-visually-discernable knob-turn.

Knowing smiles go to Austin, without whom I'd've not gone to the concert. But then again, without Austin, I'd've never heard Air's spiralling, entrancing music in the first place. So thanks for both, my friend.
