Picking Up Crumbs: Jonsi

26 Apr

In the matchup of weekend double-headers, with DeVotchKa/Gogol Bordello at First Ave going up against Jónsi at the Pantages, the Sigur Rós frontman walked away with an epic win. Not only is his high tenor a thing of strange, fluid beauty, but the stage show, complete with projected animations, flashing lights and an amazing backing band just sealed the deal. So much energy, it gets me giddy trying to write about it. Fortunately, I managed to get myself together after Sunday’s madcap and engaging performance to put something together for the Gimme Noise blog at City Pages so you can check that out there with more of Staciaann’s photos and a video sneak peak from the making of the stage show.

Also, check out Death Vessel, the opener for the Jónsi tour. One guy, and it is a guy with a guitar singing in a beautifully high register, this folky side of Joanna Newsom and Joni Mitchell. Seriously, gender stereotyping cognitive dissonance aside, totally dug it, and despite warnings to the contrary, so glad we came on time.
