Just got back from the Imaginary Cities, Buried Beds, mewithoutYou show in Pawtucket, RI.
I'd never heard of Imaginary Cities but they were awesome. (Then I realized that one of the guys occasionally does stuff with The Weakerthans.) Buried Beds were ok. They weren't bad, but occasionally the violin just didn't "fit".
mewithoutYou was really good. Second time I've seen them. My only complaint was that the set was almost entirely stuff off the new album. I really like the new album, but the one older song I wanted to hear that is pretty much a staple of their shows wasn't in the set list. (Or they weren't able to play it because the drummer broke his snare drum on the last song, a particularly more rocking version of Circles, resulting in an acoustic encore instead of the full band.)
