Ever since their stellar performance at Bumbershoot in 2008, I've been eagerly waiting for Battles to come out with a new album and return to play a concert in Seattle. Almost three years later, I've finally been granted my wish as last Thursday, May 5 they played at the Crocodile—a return of sorts for them, as I also saw them on their first tour playing at the old Crocodile Cafe in 2007. Opening for them was local electronic artist IG88, about whom the worst that I can say is that his set was far too short at only 20 minutes. I don't know who decided it should be that short, but I hope to see him again playing a proper full-length set. I had the good fortune to attend the show as a reviewer for KEXP, and you can read all about it in my post on the KEXP Blog. I was also fortunate that the stage was well-lit throughout the show, so that I was able to get some decent photos to use with the review; you can see the whole set on Flickr as well. 

Also, I just want to add that I'm still thrilled that I get the opportunity to see amazing shows like this one and write about them for KEXP. It rocks very much.
