JULY 9, 2014
Saw Nick Cave last night at The Warfield. Jonathan Richman opened.
Nick Cave is a total badass. That was established beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Songs that stuck with me:
The Weeping Song
Can You Feel My Heartbeat
Do You Love Me
Push The Sky Away
He just owned it, from the first note, which was a low menacing drone that played for a couple minutes before the musicians walked on stage. Very dramatic. Theatrical. Letting the tension build.
He describes himself as a megalomaniac when he performs. Larger than life. Mythological. God-like. He's very clear about the role he needs to play on stage to fully deliver his songs.
