There were tons of reviews of The Magnetic Fields' show in Oakland, but apparently, no photo passes were handed out, which is quite frustrating as I wanted to see the band in action with Mr. Daniel Handler and Mr. Johnny Blood. Anyhow, Plank Magazine, Spinning Platters, and A+E all loved the show, to no surprise.
The sneak preview of Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields was last night as well, and there is a review up at this blog. The review is not the most detailed in the world, but it functions nice as the probably the largest chunk of information on the film available thus far. Also, I stole the picture above from said blog. If you were there, it'd be lovely of you to just leave a little review in the comments section. <3
Not to mention this interview with Mr. Merritt from the Wisconsin Gazette. In it, Mr. Merritt reveals the inspiration behind the title of the No-Synth Trilogy, recounts his Tom Lehrer story, and reveals his lack of drive to write a book. Good times.
