Last night I had the oppurtunity to see Low at the Great American Music Hall (GAMH) in San Francisco. I was planning on going anyway but was lucky enough to win a pair of tickets from Sub Pop (Thanks Chris!). It seems that most of the shows I’ve seen lately have been at the GAMH. The Antlers, Eels, and the Low Anthem have all recently played at this beautiful venue in San Francisco. As a special treat, Mark Kozelek of Sun Kill Moon and Red House Painters’ fame came onstage to play a couple songs.
Bachelorette opened the evening with her ever expanding loops, keyboards and guitars setting a foundation for her vocals which were often layered and looped as well. I’ve seen her open for Beach House awhile back and was looking forward to hearing what she’s been up to. I’d love to talk to her about her software and equipment some day as she seems to be able to build layers of sounds but also effortlessly creates changes in the music. That’s something that most loop based musicians have a hard time doing.
