SFA + Jicks... Jeez. I wish SFA would play some more US dates.

I know that a lot of what I say has been lifted off of men's room walls

Re: 4Knots Festival, NYC 7/11

Show was a blast. Met up with board member regular stairs! Ha.  Malkmus was mesmerizing.  Played piano with mike on freeze the saints. Absolutely stellar!

Re: 4Knots Festival, NYC 7/11

Props to Ash on the meet up , good times. Like he said we wanted morrree!

Re: 4Knots Festival, NYC 7/11

Yeah, really fun set. Pretty laid back, languid renditions of a lot of the tunes to my ears. Believe this was the order:

Senator
C&L
Animal midnight
Chart junk
Shibboleth
Asking price
Stick figures
J smoov
Scattegories
Chariot
Freeze the saints
Houston hades
Baby cmon
RET

Highlights were the Malkshredding on Animal Midnight and J Smoov, "Neil Diamond" style Freeze the Saints (in Jake's words) and RET was pretty dope. They never made the transition to the second half of the tune -- just built an extended spacey jam out of the transition section.

Re: 4Knots Festival, NYC 7/11

yes, fishfishfish is correct, RET might have teased Mama in the jam, dunno, but was supa cool...

And Screaming Females wuz da topz!!!!!

Yeah that end part of animal midnight is my favorite. Sounded so good live. Malkmus plays like a man possessed. Ha.

Re: 4Knots Festival, NYC 7/11

Wish I could've made it, sounds like a good time. Was in the city that morning but plans got in the way. Did get to see Speedy Ortiz at the same venue a couple days earlier, when it poured. Would have been a nice spot for a sunny day Jicks show! Anyway here's hoping for a proper East Coast swing soon.

Re: 4Knots Festival, NYC 7/11

A cool review with photos and videos. Like the shot of Malkmus watching Mikal Cronin.

Re: 4Knots Festival, NYC 7/11

I really wanted to go to that, such a beautiful day and setting. Heartbreaking to miss it since it's been so long since they were in driving distance from where I am. Sad faced emoji.

Re: 4Knots Festival, NYC 7/11

Anybody know what kind of kicks Malkmus is wearing there?
