Music: Built To Spill Live

An ACL Aftershow at La Zona Rosa. I was too exhausted from ACL Day 2 to really enjoy this show. I was super close to the stage and my ears were throbbing the next day. Note to self - bring earplugs or stand further back. A very different set from what they played at ACL. They played more of their longer songs from Perfect From Now On and songs from earlier albums that I am not as familiar with. Dough Martsch looks like an assistant professor of Slavic languages. He does not look like a rock star. Very unassuming - sings with his eyes closed. He set up his own gear. The three guitar attack was amazing to see up close. They closed the set with an amazing version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
