Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kill Moon set proved to cerebral for some. The reverb-drenched psych folk was deliberately slow, causing many unfamiliar to lose interest early.

The people around me were a bunch of Chatty Cathy’s more concerned with whether or not Tool will be releasing a new album soon than listening to the complex tunes coming from the stage. A lot of people took off early to catch sets at the Red or Blue stage, but those that stuck it out (which was a bunch) were treated to an interesting performance that included Kozelek announcing things like “Daddy’s getting tired,” and “I love black people.”

I can’t say I’m a huge Sun Kill Moon fan, or Red House Painters for that matter, but Kozelek is a good songwriter and I’m glad I was able to experience his live show.
