ATP AP Day 2: BEAK> Was Bleak At The Convention Hall

I thought musicians took joy in performing.  I thought they were at least supposed to fight back a grin while basking in the glorious waves of applause bestowed upon them by adoring patrons.  I thought artistic expression was spiritual cleansing and comfort and therapeutic…but staring at the tri-headed doom and gloom bomb that is the Geoff Barrow-led (Portishead, Anika) Trip-Hoppin’ three-piece BEAK>, one would never realize it.

Barrow’s first of four performances of the weekend was like attending a show in the Wristcutters: A Love Story universe, an alternate world that’s resembles your everyday existence, only it’s slightly more depressing, and nobody is allowed to express happiness…that being said, did I mention the tunes were enjoyable?
