Built to Spill with Sister Crayon and Helvetia
Culture Room, Fort Lauderdale
Better than: Maybe any other show we've attended in the past year.
The Built to Spill show last night was like a giant bear hug. Better, bigger, warmer, and more delightfully dramatic than the one that pizza guy gave to Obama
last week. It was a campfire sing-along where the stars were in our eyes, not the sky. Not everyone loves emotional guitar sounds, but those who do filled Culture Room with their sweaty bodies, their intense feelings, idol worship for Doug Martsch, and loud singing voices.
