The Dragonette show was last night and I wish I had had a better time.
My friends looked vaguely bored the whole time and seemed as though they couldn’t wait to escape their own personal hell, which put a damper on my spirits, to say the least. I didn’t dwell on it and did my best to enjoy the lacklustre show, the only inspired songs from Dragonette’s set were covers, Martina Sorbara seemed bored with the album tracks and made very little effort to hide that fact.
The new (unnamed) track sounded interesting though she stopped it midway through due to a ‘throat thing’ she had been dealing with.
The one bright spot of the evening was their cover of Wolfmother’s Woman, easily one of the better covers I’ve heard, though the MSTRKRFT remix is still my favourite take on that song…
