After not sleeping Friday night, I headed uptown to go to Curiosa. We got there pretty early, and at first I was all excited and determined to see all the bands. But once they got to the Rapture I didn't feel like walking back and forth for performances I was only semi-interested in seeing. The Rapture, Interpol, and obviously the Cure were definetly my favorites. The shows just got increasingly good. Muse sounded really good, but I couldn't really see them. I saw Cooper Temple Clause and Mogwai too, but they didn't really do it for me. The lead singer of Cooper Temple Clause is hardcore English and looked like he was gonna kick everyone's ass. I took a lot of pictures. At one point I was sitting on the grass next to the gate that leads backstage and I saw a golf cart pass by with Robert Smith sitting in the back, smiling with his feet dangling. It was great. I'm so so soooo glad I saw them live. They were so good. Before going, I had heard people saying that Interpol had put on the best show and that the Cure wasn't all that great, but that was beyond bullshit. They were incredible. Oh! and Interpol played "Narc," "Evil," and "Slow Hands" from the new CD and that made me really happy. I think they added something to Narc, but I'm not too sure. Regardless, the new stuff sounded really good live.
Anyways, I put some of the pictures below. In an effort to get all my decent photos in one place and because I don't like posting random pictures on livejournal, I made a photo site, or "photo blog" as some might have it. From now on I'm putting most photos there, and the bulk of the Curiosa pictures are there too (including one too many sassy pictures of Carlos!), so if you want to see more, they're at www.stephanieborgs.com
