Most disappointing international solo show I've been to. There were notes about requesting no cellphones, no talking and no taking photos. The audience was somewhat sparse yet consisted of a wide age rage (teens to late fifties and early 60's, at a guess).
Mark and his co-guitarist Phil spent what seemed like half of the time they were on stage tuning their guitars. I've only heard a couple of Red House Painters albums, II and Down Colorful Hill, and he played a few songs from both. No complaints about the quality of his material but I kept comparing his showmanship to Kristin Hersh and felt he'd rate a 30% to her 100. During my time at this show I felt I would have been better off home listening to a Red House Painters CD than seeing this show. Best moment was the encore as it was the only time that it was just Mark Kozelek with a guitar.
