Well, Nada Surf… really, this was probably the gig of the year. Charming, powerful, melancholic, funny… there was everything an indie-rock enthusiast could wish for. If there’s one thing that I could complain about it’s that they didn’t play Are You Lighning, my favourite song from Lucky. But that’s just a minor complaint, and not one that did any harm to this perfect evening.
The band’s still on the road, and you really should get there if you have the chance. Check the homepage for the next dates. Below are some of my crappy cellphone-shots, and as Nada Surf is really generous with offering their songs for free, I’ve listed all the ones I could find. Time again to discover/revisit this great band!
