Last night we went to Raw Rhythm Festival in Amsterdam. We went to see Lamb. I didn’t care about the rest of the bands. I didn’t even care that we paid for a festival ticket to see just one band. It was Lamb!
Lamb has been my favorite band since I first heard them play in 2002. In 2004 they gave their farewell concerts (on two consecutive nights) in Paradiso in Amsterdam. I thought I’d never hear them live again. What a great surprise when our friend P. called and said “Lamb is playing!”.
They played a set that was too short, and consisted of a “best of” play list. They had a harder edge with more noise in the music, but it didn’t detract at all. Lou looked great (actually more healthy than the last time we saw her on stage).
From the web site it looks like they really are back together and are touring this year. I don’t know if they are coming out with a new CD. I hope so.
It was just so great to hear them live again and to see that they are still enjoying their music. I hope they know how many hard core fans they have out here hoping to hear more and more and more.
