Never close your eyes while listening to Sigur Rós.
Even at intense volume, the music of Sigur Rós can lull a person into an R.E.M. state.
Unfortunately, I had to close my eyes many times during the band’s performance at Bass Concert Hall on Feb. 26. The lighting engineer thought it was a good idea to shine bright intense lights into the audience for long periods of time.
An occassion flash to the audience is all right, but blinding them so they can’t even see the concert is a terrible choice.
