Yann Tiersen. Regency Ballroom. San Francisco. California. 5.11.2012.

Tonight I went to see Yann Tiersen. I told all my friends about it and that he's the guy who did the Amelie soundtrack. Little did I know that his music is actually a lot more diverse than the Amelie soundtrack (luckily). I kept thinking, oh wow, this is a lot like Arcade Fire + Jónsi + Washed Out. I wish I had known that so I would have been more persuasive when I told my friends about the show. The woman that opened, who was not Piano Chat on the bill, is a one woman live musical. I don't know how else to explain it except that she loops her instruments and her voice and does the songs that way. She was definitely very interesting and emotive.
