I just got home from seeing The Magnetic Fields. Swoon. Not many bands could pull off the piano/cello/ukelele/acoustic guitar or banjo (depending on the song) instrumentation combo, but they did and it was transcendent. no drums, either.

they played "Love is like Jazz", but I'm not sure if it was planned or a spontaneous lark whilst tuning. Improv on a cello is something else.

Aside from the great show, I got to sit down the entire time (never had been to The Moore before, but I like it), and when I left my ears weren't ringing. Aging hipster curmugeon says fuck yeah!

Stephin Merritt = my boyfriend.

(yes, I know).
