The Clientele played the 400 Bar, Minneapolis, last night. Opening up for them was the drums/guitar duo, Planes for Spaces and the painfully shy Beach House.
The Clientele came on really late and the sound there seems to be some technical problems (you couldn't hear Mel's violins and the vocals was really hard to hear) - but this is typical sound at the 400 Bar. The only thing the 400 have going for it, is its intimacy.
The song I've chosen for you is "Winter on Victoria Street", which is pretty melodic. The Clientele is more rock when they play live, which is very different from their mellow studio releases (their last album is God Save the Clientele, released on Merge Records).
Hopefully I'll also post a video of the last three minutes of "The Garden at Night" (?) when played live. Check out the mad guitar playing. Sorry about the lack of light, that's just the 400 for you (no one is working the lights).
