Jamie Stewart (Paradiso, Amsterdam 27-05-2009)
After my memorable evening with Women and Deerhunter, it was time to have a look at the small room of the Paradiso. I love this venue for its easy access to the different areas and programming more artists on the same evening, only there are is one catch: you have to be lucky with the audience you get!
This time the show of Jamie Stewart (frontman of Xiu Xiu) was ruined by some loud w#nkers who were standing at the bar in the back of the room and making an incredible noise and inappropriate sounds. Those people came from the Deerhunter show as well and weren't quite respectful towards this other artist.
Jamie Stewart did an incredible intimate, diverse, accoustic set with lots of instruments, but it somehow fellt like it was for a lost cause :( I really feel bad for him and he was extremely pissed about it (check the site of Xiu Xiu... uh oh). I also feel terribly sorry for the people who bought a ticket.
And again another case of BAA (Bad Amsterdamned Audience). I'll probably get flamed for this.
