Live Performance Review from Ethics for noncompliance's John Puckett

LIVE REVIEW: Goodnightgoodnight / Lucious Fox / The Functional Citizens
It’s no great discovery that the difference between mainstream music and everything else is simply the size of the audience. Mainstream, everybody’s heard of you. Hundreds of thousands of people have memorized your lyrics. Your audience is so big you become a reference point for cultural jokes. Millions of people view your image or hear your music, daily.

That’s mainstream.

Green Day played a show at Rebo’s in Dayton Ohio in 1992 where they carted in all their own gear from the van and played to an audience of 40 teenagers who had nothing better to do on a Saturday night, then loaded everything back into their van and spent the night on the couch of one gracious “fan” from that night’s show. The venue was devoid of goods or service- just an empty warehouse with electricity and an eight-inch-tall wooden stage in one corner. Only punk kids had heard of them and they could barely afford a hotel room on that tour, but they had two studio albums out on a label called Lookout Records.

That’s substream.

GoodnightGoodnight, Lucious Fox, and The Dysfunctional Citizens played The Lamplighter in Kalamazoo, Michigan last weekend.

That’s underground.

Way underground…

Goodnightgoodnight kicked off the evening, slowly. They came on without giving notice. But then people began to take notice.

Their music was captivating. Trance-inducing, one bartender was heard to say. He was listening and listening and four songs into their set he realized, “Holy shit. I’m supposed to be working here.” It’s complex. Arrangements like Radiohead, ambience like an up-tempo Pink Floyd on an album produced by Phil Spector. To fully appreciate the work they’ve put into their music you must pay attention, but it’s ok if you don’t feel like paying attention. They will draw your mind slowly away from wherever it wandered off to and then keep it there, fixed on them, unwavering, until they release you with the cue to applaud.

They don’t do this with antics. There’s no Iggy Pop here, no flashy showmanship. The guitar player goofs around a little but mainly he’s working his right arm feverishly, strumming one chord 16 times in three seconds, from the shoulder. The keyboard player, who doubles as the drummer, produces the sound of three people. The bassist is a master of technique and of subtlety. Like all great bassists, you feel his playing in your chest rather than perceiving it through your ears. Amanda Thornton, the lead vocalist, managed quite a trick: ethereal and disconsolate throughout the songs, breezy and engaging in between. The juxtaposition of heaviness and light in the same person was riveting.

Goodnightgoodnight’s music requires the audience’s full attention and, happily, we had no choice but to give it, for which we were richly rewarded.
