A few days ago I mentioned the Tortoise concert on June 30th at the Cedar Cultural Center. You can also find some nice YouTube clips and Tortoise links at the bottom of the posting. A friend, William McClain, was at the concert and posted a review to Culture Bully with some nice photos from the night.
“If the members of Tortoise retained anything from their kindergarten days, it is that it’s always polite to share. The band demonstrated as much in their latest tour stop at the Cedar.”
“Set against a trippy, lo-fi backdrop, Tortoise delivered it’s brand of squidgy dub loops, dual bass grooves and assorted sonic drippings to a hipster crowd content to simply bob their heads to the beat. The minimalist setting fit well with this low-key band, which doesn’t feel the need to bother with vocals.”
