Of course, at this point, I've been well-habituated to The Soft Moon's live set, this being the third time seeing them over a two-month span, but that did not lessen their impact in the slightest, and it was heartening to see people who were obviously not familiar with their material stop and take notice.
We came in a bit late (bad habit, and not normal practice, but we had to get something to eat) but did catch half of Water Boarders set and generally liked what we heard.
"When It's Over" was played here for only the third time, it was debuted at the Feb 6th show at the Echo and LA and played again on one of their other SoCal dates (Long Beach, I am informed). It's quite rightly deemed the emotional centerpiece of their album...and this show.
Luis wearing a Bad Brains shirt was a nice touch, which he revealed after the first song (was hot on stage!).
As for any comments about the headliner, I'll pass. I refer you instead to Bob Duvet's excellent article, who also has very nice things to say about The Soft Moon.

(individual songs linked have their own video clips, 'Into The Depths' and 'Circles' shot by Nakoeth, the rest shot by my friend with his Panasonic TZ7)
And debuted here, the COMPLETE VIDEO, shot with my Flip UltraHD at 720p and stabilized with a Ready Steady, I declare this amazing, yes it's weird to make this comment as if it were somebody else filming.
