Broken Social Scene w/Do Make Say Think 11/8/06

Broken Social Scene
w/Do Make Say Think
Lupos Heartbreak Hotel
Providence, RI 11/8/06

This has to be too short for the moment..but it was amazing. I got there about 15 minutes before Do Make Say Think took the stage. I have been wanting to see them for a while now and I was not let down at all. Members traded off instruments during the show, 2 drummers pounded away in unison. It was great..and just about 1hr for a set (not bad at all for the opener).

The good news was the gear that DMST used was pretty much used by Broken Social Scene so the stage change over was quick.

Even though the band was marred at the outset w/some vocal and microphone glitches they continued on. At times there was over 15 people on stage and the band fired as a well oiled machine.

J Mascis (most notably from Dinosaur Jnr came out and just ripped his guitar solo to shreds. The audience went wild.

The band spoke a few times about "not sure when we will be back..but it will be a while" delivered a 1hr and 55 minute (no encore) set that left me breathless.

Catch them if/when you can and thank me later.

Taking 1/2 day and we are off Friday..i'll update more I swear.
