Heading to see Feist live at the House Of Blues in Boston, I wasn’t thinking much about who the opener would be. But the half hour or so that we spent listening to Timber Timbre was pretty memorable. This Canadien trio is VERY different. There’s a darkness, almost a creepiness to their music. And intentionally so! In face their latest album is called Creep On Creepin’ On.
I was standing towards the front of the stage while they played their set, and I noticed how entranced everyone around me was. It’s that eerie music that you’d maybe imagine if you were walking alone through a graveyard in the dark. It’s like the soundtrack to a spooky Tim Burton film. It’s the music they’d be playing on the jukebox in the underworld. This all may sound unpleasent, but there’s definitely something fascinating about this music. There’s a quiet dark beauty to it. It’s not like much else…it’s Timber Timbre:
“How Come You Never Go There” [LIVE]
Tonight. Tonight I see Feist live for the first time and I can barely contain my excitement! Her latest album, Metals, has been a large part of my musical world since it came out and I cannot wait to see how she performs these new tunes in a live setting. There are so many layers, intricate sounds, and delicate moments of silence in many of the tracks…and when I watch live videos like the one below, I have a feeling Feist has made it a priority to really nail the live arrangements. I’ll let you know how it is, and also fill you in on Timber Timbre, her opener. Posts about my experience seeing The Shins and Real Estate coming soon too!
TONIGHT at the House Of Blues, Boston
Feist – “The Bad in Each Other”
While I haven’t been listening to it as intensely as I did a few months ago, the latest Feist album is still in my rotation and whenever I do listen, I hear even more. When the album was really starting to resonate with me, I decided it would be incredible to see these songs done live, so I’m going to try my best to get tickets for her show this spring. I woke up to the news that she’ll play House Of Blues on May 7th! Pre-sale starts tomorrow.
