Les Savy Fav @ ATP 2008
I went to All Tomorrows Parties New York this year for my birthday. It was the best festival experience I've had. Outstanding lineup and a great venue. I finally got around to processing this set of Les Savy Fav from Saturday night of the festival. Tim Harrington puts on a great show and makes you happy to be alive. We were able to get up on the stage for this one and also talked to Tim after the show. I recommend anyone to try to see a Les Savy Fav show if you get the chance.
I had turned my friend John onto Les Savy Fav 4-5 years ago in Oklahoma City. John became a bigger fan than I was and had all the albums. During the first song they performed John was singing all the words and Tim must have noticed this and decided to lick John's face. The perfect reward.
Near the end of the set Tim decided to attempt to go crowd surfing on top of a ladder and it worked, no one was permanently injured from it that I'm aware of. I asked him if he had planned it ahead of time, he said it just popped into his head during the show when he saw a ladder on the side of the stage.
I am definitely going to try to go to ATP New York next year. Its supposed to be at the same venue and this time curated by The Breeders.
The full set is here.
