Sigur Rós and Los Angeles Philharmonic: •“Á” (arranged by Daníel Bjarnason) •“Ekki mukk” (arranged by Missy Mazzoli) •“Glósóli” (arranged by Páll Ragnar Pálsson) •“Niður” (arranged by Nico Muhly) •“Fljótavík” (arranged by Anna Meredith) •“Starálfur” (arranged by Owen Pallett) •“Festival” (arranged by Dan Deacon) •“Hrafntinna” (arranged by David Lang)
Intermission •Sigur Rós (without orchestra)
Speaking about the performance and Pitchfork's live stream, the band said:
This is all new ground for us. It’s been 15 years since we last played with an orchestra, and that wasn't even Sigur Rós songs. The shows at the Disney Hall sold out fast, and only 4,500 people can get to experience it in the room. So we thought it would be good to let anyone who couldn’t get tickets and people around the world have the opportunity to see how all it comes together. There’s just one chance for us to rehearse with the L.A. Phil ahead of time, so in all honesty we have no idea how this is going to go, but we promise it will be exciting.
What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

Tinychat isn't working for live streams (or maybe YouTube in general), but the Rabbit room is ready to go: lets.rabb.it/886j/SNplqNfslC. I'll be buzzing around the house but I'll leave it open. I remember that before it made me approve requests to join; not sure if that's still the case. If so, I apologize in advance if I'm not around to let people in, but I'll definitely be in there before the streaming starts tonight.
Edit: I did have it open, but apparently that broadcast it as open to other Rabbit users, so randos could join. I changed a setting so we'll see how it goes from here.
Edit 2: Currently streaming a pregnant giraffe, if you're into that sort of thing.

Doing dinner & baseball for date night with the lady, but I'll be back fairly early since she has to work a 12-hour shift tomorrow. Plan on watching FJM -> Phantogram live tonight...Mac Demarco and Radiohead on replay tomorrow.
Oh shit. I remember back around the turn of the decade before they reformulated seeing this article called "blackout in a can." Naturally my curiosity was piqued, and I went to the store to get a big can of the watermelon one. I got about half the can down. It was some of the nastiest shit I ever drank, and my feet twitched all night. It's like drinking caffeinated md2020 or Cisco. Ugh. Ulch.
