::RAINBOWS AND SOCIAL SCENES::
I went to the Gypsy Tea Room's Ballroom last night to see Broken Social Scene, and they surpassed their two albums in their performance. While a little quick to place the onus of "making it a good show" on the audience, their music sounded richer and more enveloping than their recordings. Maybe it's because the audience didn't suck
, maybe it's because their albums tend to be unpolished, but I will put their records in heavier rotation.
The light show was simple, but at one point, rigging-bound blue and red lights ran in parallel, their beams touching, and I thought, That rainbow is... broken.
