Four international bands this Wednesday @ Legacy

Just a heads up on an interesting show this Wednesday (Jan. 11) at Legacy: Metronomy (UK) The Naked and Famous (NZ) Bombay Bicycle Club (UK)and The Jezabels (AUS). Metronomy and the BBC are pretty well known and The Naked and Famous are very big in NZ and rocked Fuji Rock last year. Should be a good night.

I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

BBC and Metronomy are both worth seeing for sure. Looking forward to this gig a lot.

Damn and double damn! Would love to see this, but I don't get back to the island until March. Arrgh. Metronomy are from my home town, basically just a speck on the map in a forgotten corner of England.

Yeah good night what? Thought Bombay Bicycle Club were absolutely epic. As I expected Naked and Famous were run-away crowd favorites thanks to having a lead singer of Chinese extraction (and seeming to be surfing a wave of world-wide popularity right now. Hope it lasts.)

Bombay Bicycle Club were the highlight for me, as well. They've obviously been playing to some pretty big crowds, since they turned it on and got LOUD in all the right ways and at all the right times. Haven't enjoyed a set that much since I saw The Joy Formidable at a festival this past summer. I was almost done in by the time Metronomy got on, but so great to see such good bands on a bill together in a venue like Legacy. Whoever's behind it, bring more please!

Sorry I had to miss it. Just curious, how many people showed up? NT$2,000 is a lot of money for a show on Wednesday night. I'm sure it was worth it, but does Taiwan now have an audience well-heeled enough to support this kind of price. I know Japanese bands at Legacy charge this much regularly, but can acts from the UK and Australia with relatively little exposure in Taiwan also draw a crowd? I certainly hope this is the beginning of many great shows in Taiwan. Great live music is one of the few things from the US that I still really miss. Things have vastly improved, but still...
