Great: when you see a band live and it’s better than the record. No-so-great: when the live show doesn’t live up to the record. Unfortunately, when we went out last night and saw The Libertines, it was more of the latter. Their record is very excellent — old school Clash-esque punk, with little hidden melodies. But the show was a little too much on the sloppy side.
It was still nice to get out and see some music though.
