Great Lake Swimmers live @ King Georg

Having had the chance to see Great Lake Swimmers play live @ The Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco earlier this year, I considered it a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Little did I know at the time that legoline and me would be in for a real folksy treat later this year.

Fast forward to November 26, 2009. Imagine a club the size of an average gas station shop, holding a couple of booths, a big 360° bar and a small car-sized spot in the middle of it all where 5 guys would stand and play their tunes. Fill it with people standing to the sides and sitting cross-legged on the floor listening and you have a pretty good picture of what it looked like yesterday at King Georg.

The whole thing was so surreal as we literally sat like a couple of feet away from the band. I wish that was the standard way to attend a concert as you were basically right in the middle of it all.

Great Lake Swimmers certainly pwned the place for a bit over an hour and played favorites like Changing Colours and Your Rocky Spine and gladly took to a request for Three Days at Sea [I think that's what it was] which wasn't on their set list. Pretty cool, I'd say.

For the extras, Tony Dekker came back out and performed three songs solo. Among them, Merge, A Vessel, A Harbour and There's A Light ♥ Great show!

Have some pictures.

  7. And one of the handwritten set lists that legoline nabbed after the show unlike another audience member who stepped in between and on the band's equipment to grab one WHILE TONY WAS STILL OUT PLAYING A FEW SONGS EXTRA. He even stopped the intro of the song he was about to play and had to start over again. People...
