Miike Snowed in at the Belly Up

    The South by Southwest crowd singing along to "Animal."

    One of my top acts of 2009, Miike Snow -- a collaboration between NYC's Andrew Wyatt and the Swedish producing team of Bloodshy and Avant -- performed at the Belly Up Tavern on Tuesday to a capacity crowd.

    Having seen the band previously at South by Southwest and Coachella, the San Diego show was clearly the best, offering a full - set list, enthusiastic audience and sweaty, intimate setting. Guest blogger Taylor Doms, of San Diego's, offers the following review/video clips from the show:

    "Donning their signature Phantom of the Opera-inspired masks, and beneath a cast of deep-blue lights and foggy-ness to achieve a ghostly, indie vibe, Miike Snow became hot and heavy as jiving bodies swayed to catchy glo-pop hits "Animal" and "Black and Blue," and the “chillectro” smash, "Silvia" --which could barely be heard over the audience, who gleefully chanted along. When performed live, "Burial" is, without a doubt, one of my favorite Miike Snow tracks. Slowly reverberating xylophone keys, played in a perfectly cheerful pitch, invokes a state of hypnosis that spread across the crowd with each chilling echo -- gorgeous."
