Death Cab for Cutie - or was it Dead boring cab ride?

by Thorendal

(Looking for a miracle?)

Last night we were entering Vega to explore and hopefully enjoy a concert with the band from Seattle, Death Cab for Cutie. I have only heard a few songs with them before, and only because I was asked if I wanted to go to the concert.

The music to me is a mixture of Coldplay and Dave Matthews - pretty unexciting well polished pop music. In fact I am a bit surprised to have found out that they have fans in Denmark, as I don’t think it is typically music for Danish ears. Well I might be wrong on that, but maybe it is because I don’t really know anyone who listens to this kind of well-behaved-none-inspirational-pop-music. In fact this kind of people are a total mystery to me - a guy who was standing next to us was almost headbanging to the music - what was that all about!
The band’s performance offered nothing interesting. Actually I don’t remeber anything they did or said last night, which was probably not their intention. The sound though was absolutely perfact as always in Vega.

Anyways, I know the above sounds a bit harsh. I did enjoy the concert - it is always interesting to hear new music. But Death Cab for Cutie is just a bit too boring for my taste. I don’t understand how a band with fairly uninspirering music have actually done 7 albums and a bunch of singles and EPs. Maybe I am the weird one for not really liking the music.

Nevertheless I had a fantastic evening and I’d like to thank Mette, René and Malene for a fun night out! See you guys for Editors on Sunday…
