The first set was rather serious, due to the more profound and deeper songs on the playlist. Only to burst into an exuberant party in the second set. Calexico invited Blind Pilot back on stage to celebrate the birthday of one of their bandmembers. 'We just can't stop playing', exclaimed Calexico frontman Joey Burns during the encore. A confession that was gratefully recieved by the audience. Once Calexico starts playing, you don't want them to stop. Great musicians, fabulous songs and an overwhelming stage performance make it just perfect. Leaving us, hoping they might soon return to the Netherlands.
Wed 21 Nov – Calexico + Blind Pilot
