Future Islands | Live at the Empty Bottle
This weekend I went and saw Future Islands play at the Empty Bottle in Chicago. Their most recent LP, In Evening Air, was my roughest-cast gem of 2010. What started as a slight obsession with the track, “Tin Man,” developed into a deep, enduring affair with the entire album.
In 2007 I saw Sigur Ros play “( )” straight through in its entirety. It was the most emotionally charged concert I’d ever seen… until Future Islands.
