I want to have Mogwai's baby. I was so happy to hear them live at Belly Up in Solana Beach, to rock back and forth, nod my head, smile. To hear the sort-of lead singer (they don't much sing) say into what we called the thank you mic, "Thanks very much, cheers" after each song. After they left the stage the lights stayed off and I asked Matthew why we do encores. When did the encore become the fashion and why? But I'm psyched they did because when they came back out they played my favorite, Auto Rock, the song me and my people walked down the aisle to a year ago. Love!
