Air @ YuGongYiShan

Unexpected Goal in Life: See Air live. Check.

I've always been a fan of Air, but they just bumped up to favorite band status after I saw them live at my favorite venue Yugongyishan last night.

Air is a French two piece set: bass and keyboard (with drummer support). They play all their downtempo songs live and perform all their vocals between the two of them (both guys).

Last night they played all of their popular tracks including those from 'Moon Safari' and 'the Virgin Suicides'. Some of the songs simply brought me to another world, it was ecstasy. I've never been as wowed by a downtempo band.

Best thing at Beijing since the Olympics.
