Editors at Rothko

Another great show by Editors. After all of the venue nonsense, Editors finally settled in at Rothko. They played a very similar, and short, set (if not the exact same) to the Mercury show, but seemed a little more into it. The crowd was much more vocal than at the Friday show - perhaps because the venue was packed by 10pm and they didn't take the stage until 11:30, so they were ready to rock.

After two nights of standing in front of the stage, I realized how great of a guitarist Chris Urbanowicz is. What I've always liked about Editors is the fact that their guitars are almost synth like, and along with the fast, precise drumming, they create a great dance rock sound withoyt using synths. And as I watched how quick and precise Urbanowicz was with his guitar, I was impressed at how well Editors recreated the "synth" sounds live.

Tom Smith gives a very emotional performance - almost Chris Martin-esque at times. And he's a nice chap too - I had a quick chat with Chris and him at the afterparty about how brilliant "Munich" is.

And even though the venue issues were crazy, Nick Marc did a good job securing both the live venue and the afterparty venue (Fontana's) after finding out that The Annex was not going to be ready for the show.
