Hey guys, I saw Xiu Xiu playing the music of Twin Peaks yesterday, April 10, in Offenbach, Germany. One word: amazing. Anyone who gets a chance to see them, do it. I particularly enjoyed the band's performance of Into the Night and Sycamore Trees, with Jamie Stewart on vocals. Falling was beautiful. For the final piece, the group's Shayna Dunkelman read a couple of pages from Laura's diary to some "dark mood" music, and suddenly Jamie went into "Mairzy Doats".
Xiu Xiu captured many moods that to me are "Twin Peaks" and gave a spectacular performance. To anyone who knows the group and Twin Peaks, "Xiu Xiu plays the Music of Twin Peaks" really is a combination of the two.
Btw, does anyone know about David Lynch's involvement in this project? The lady who announced the show said something along the lines of "Xiu Xiu are doing this at the request of David Lynch".
I was also very happy to find a copy of the 2LP RSD release on the merch table
