Slanted & Enchanted was released 6 months before I was born. If you had asked me a year ago if I thought I would ever get the chance to see Pavement play (never mind Pavement, preceded by Beach House, Band of Horses, BSS, etc.), I would have probably started laughing. This was my first really big concert and a night I will take great pains not to forget. Breaking it down set by set:
Toronto Revue - I was still in line at this point, so there's not much to say. They sounded pretty good as I slowly advanced towards the entrance and contemplated the afternoon/night of music ahead.
Timber Timbre - I only started getting into this band a little while ago, so not all of the songs were recognizable to me, but I enjoyed the set quite a bit as a mid-paced warm-up for later acts. The spooky folk might not have matched the bright, sunny day, but the songs were very pretty and haunting.
Beach House - Teen Dream is one of my favourite records of 2010 so far…

I think "Grounded" was one of the best live songs I've ever seen. Amazing! Absolutely amazing!
