Elsewhere, the quartet’s omnivorous appetite was confirmed once again in a set that ranged from the bucolic psychedelia of Sigur Ros’s “Flugufrelsarinn” (“The Fly Freer”) to the distorted catharsis of Michael Gordon’s “Sad Park.” The Mexican alternative-rock band Café Tacuba’s vivid “11/11” closed the show, and a suite from Clint Mansell’s score for the film “Requiem for a Dream” was a generous encore.Kronos plays Cafe Tacuba? That's awesome! (For a recounting of my first exposure to Cafe Tacuba last November, see here.)
Apparently, however, this should not have come as a surprise to me, since Kronos recorded a piece entitled "12/12" with Cafe Tacuba on their Nuevo album, which I own. Who knew?
At any rate, the Celebrate Brooklyn concert sounds like it was a great one; I wish I could have been there.
