Live: The Magnetic Fields, Meymandi Concert Hall with the Lights Off, 10/18/08

 

By my count, Stephin Merritt only smiled five times during the course of the Magnetic Field's Saturday night show in Raleigh. Mind you, most of those were half-smiles in response to his own acerbic comments. But they were smiles nonetheless and that makes me think Merritt hates this live thing - this prostitution of art.
