Death Cab For Cutie @ The Academy, Manchester

Hey there,

I went to see Death Cab in Manchester early July. Here’s the set list:

The opening band The Head and The Heart blew me away. I’ve seen Death Cab quite a few times and they’re great live- but not to sound like a bit of a turd-I enjoyed Heady Heart’s set more than the main event. When they ended with “Rivers and Roads” I had a chin quiver. I had chills. Jaw dropping music moment bliss. Incredible.

The album version cannot replicate what I heard.

This video comes … close..

Benny Gibbs. Can I call him Benny Gibbs?

I found it somewhat hard to get some good shots- I’ve actually had that problem at quite a few shows lately- smoke on stage is pretty and all, but just poops for my camera.

This is a video of “Some Boys” which is easily my favorite tune from their new album.

 

And this is a video of “I Will Follow You Into The Dark”- where you can barely hear the song due to audience participation.

 

The moral to this story is: listen to The Head and The Heart. Delicious.
