it comes as no surprise that undeniable talent often comes with some neurotic tendencies. last night at tavastia the fences in front of the small stage spoke volumes, and the situation got slightly absurd at the bar when people were told the artist had banned glass bottles.
but florence + the machine delivered. from the start it was obvious that her singing talent is genuinely unrivaled by her contemporaries. compared to the other art school derived briton of monday night, there was maturity and completeness of art on stage with florence. it was pure strength and without a doubt it was florence herself who was the machine. awesome.
