(Incidentally, someone at the Corner has good taste in music; between the first two sets, they played most of Slowdive's Souvlaki (the first time I've heard Slowdive played in public in Australia that I can remember), and in the next break, they played The Paradise Motel's Men Who Loved Her and Portishead's Roads, among other tracks.)
The Swirl show was great too, albeit hampered by the poor acoustics of the Espy's main stage and the less-than-ideal PA. It was sort of a launch for their new album, so they played some tracks off that, along with some intense shoegazer pieces off The Last Unicorn, ending with an intensely climactic rendition of Tailor's Eye. The PA problems muffled the sound a bit, taking a toll on their more polished recent tracks (with their sampled backing tracks), but the wall-of-noise pieces coped admirably; in any case, the crowd (some of whom were hardcore Swirl fans, in the habit of following them around Australia) were really getting into it, and picking up the energy. It was a good show.
