My first negative Killers post ever...

Obviously I'm a huge fan of The Killers, and I was really happy to see the crowd dancing around and having a good time...but tonight's show was kinda disappointing for me. Now I've seen them 5 times this year (somehow) and they've played the exact same songs every time. And it's not just that they play through the whole album...not once have I heard Believe Me Natalie or Everything Will be Alright. They play the rest of the songs off Hot Fuss, plus Indie Rock and Roll and Under the Gun. Every time. That gets stale, no matter how much I still like the songs. Also, they closed their 35 minute(!!!) main set with Somebody Told Me, which I always thought was THE perfect song for the middle of the set cause it gets the crowd all wound up, and the momentum from that carries through the end. Tonight, everyone got all worked up for the encore break, which always with them lasts about a minute or two too long. Finally, the songs just didn't sound all that tight. A handful of them just felt a bit off the whole way through. Was weird, cause they usually blow through these songs flawlessly. All in all it was kind of a downer, being that this is prolly the last time I'll see them this year. I hope the next time they're around they've mixed it up a little bit.

With that said, I'm amazed at how much I still like all their songs so much. When they nail a song, it's great, and after listening to these 12 songs probably more than any other music this year, I still love them all. So props to that, I just wish their set got shaken up every once in a while.

One final note...Ambulance was really good right before them. They don't ever seem to get a lot of buzz, but I'm a big fan of their album, and they sounded great live. Closing their set with their instrumental album opener was an interesting choice, but it worked perfectly. A definite highlight from an otherwise banal night.

I prefer Ambulance to the Killers. There's this lame instinct in NYC these days... post-rock and noise-rock is so popular that anything as lyrics focused as Ambulance is scoffed at as "poppy..." I think they are a terrific band with great songs. It might be that shitty name that's holding them back.

Yeah...they are definitely a pleasant alternative to a lot of the stuff out there. I'm a fan.
