tUne-yArDs do not disappoint at Summerfest
The tUne-yArDs’ album, w h o k i l l, was an album that was in my top 5 of 2011. It may have even been my favorite album of last year and I have been in the market to attend one of their shows for the past year and a half. I finally made it happen at Summerfest for my birthday. July 1st, 2012 will go down as one of my better birthdays of recent memory.
Merrill Garbus is an unreal and unusual talent. When you listen to
w h o k i l l you wonder how this will play out at a live performance. It plays out in a perfection that is surreal to the human brain. Merrill loops and recreates the album to the T. Making the live performance a more enjoyable experience than going to get ice cream at the local dairy with your grandparents on a hot summer day. In all honesty, I may just be a prisoner of the moment, but it was one of the best performances I have witnessed in a long, long time. If you are a fan of the album, go out and just witness what Merrill can provide you with at a live show.
Here are some more photos from the performance last night at the Briggs and Stratton Stage on the Summerfest grounds in Milwaukee, WI.
