Amazing seeing The Dirty Three play last night. They are really fucking heavy. Like being on acid heavy. I felt that they were shaking the core of everyone in that room. I wondered what each person felt. What they went away with. If they understood it, the thing that was happening to them. I was glad for the celebration, and emotional at returning to the real world upon leaving that room. I hope that at one point in time we all learn to relax the way that you see Jim White is relaxed behind those drums, or Mick is with his guitar. And that we all can let go and let our bodies move the way Warren Ellis does. All frenzied and aggressive. It looks so right. We are glad to go up to Minneapolis to see them again. And to play again! But to see them.
