Death Cab For Cutie/Styrofoam


Indie-electronica with a dash of 80s synth. Pretty upbeat and good fun and reminiscent of Postal Service, making them an obvious support act. I also dig that they’re Belgian.

Death Cab for Cutie

Difficult to be objective about a band you’re sentimentally attached to, but they were a good show. To play to the big crowd, they stuck to the favourites and played them as-is from the recordings. I prefer live shows to give something a little unique and varied from their releases, but it’s a minor complaint. I just won’t need to see them in the flesh again.
