monday the brit and i went to St. Etienne (i'm not even bothering to link because the new site isn't functional and the "mothballed" one was last updated in 2003) at Irving Plaza. I think the last time i was at ip was for the shins in 2004, just after valentine's day. pretty interesting fact, eh?
anyway, they were PHENOMENAL. it was such a fun show. definitely an older crowd than i'm used to (read: mostly my age and older) but everyone was very much into it.
there's a great quality to their music that is at once comforting and exciting. their early 90s nostalgia goes a long way with me. and i think sarah cracknell has one of the most unique voices ever.
