Last Night: Sweet Silence with Sigur Ros at the Greek Theatre

Last night, October 2nd, was a beautiful, refreshing night at the Greek with Sigur Ros taking the stage.   Nothing could have been sweeter than the silence of the crowd mid-set during a break in the intro to "Festival" from the band's latest release Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.  Silence!  Everyone attentive... listening... before the eruption of strings that swirled up and into decrescendo, leaving the melody at the sound of a whistle.  The genius of that whistle! 

Parachutes, also from Iceland, opened the sold out show. Check out the slideshow here or just click on the image below.
