Oneohtrix Point Never
Location: The Crocodile, EMP Museum, EMP Sky Church
Memorable Moment: Let us pray. In hindsight, I probably should have spent every possible minute at the Sky Church. That venue is so damn impressive. Walking in for the first time really was breath taking. It is quite cavernous + alcohol is only sold on the upper lever, but damn is that screen fun to look at.
Biggest Letdown: I enjoy Oneohtrix Point Never but there is definitely a right time + place for him. I saw him a few months back while reclining at the Pritzker Pavillion in Chicago. I was comfortable + the show was very interesting + enjoyable. Seeing him at the Sky Church was definitely impressive but it just felt like a lull among so many other fun shows from the night.
This Show: Was an overall good night. The Ninja Tune crew with Letherette, FaltyDL, + Martyn were impressive + The Crocodile was a perfect venue. Letherette was just about the cutest duo ever + I pretty much melted when they started singing along under their breaths. Thanks to the suggestion of a friend I checked out Andy Stott + he was definitely the highlight. So much good energy. Oneohtrix Point Never slowed things down a bit but heading back to The Crocodile for the tail-end of FaltyDL + Martyn was a smart decision. This venue + its patrons had a good vibe + the music was spot on. This was one of my favorite nights of the festival.
