Neil Young Concert Reviews - Washington, DC, May 24, 2010
UPDATE: Thrasher's Wheat review now posted: Expecting to See Neil Young (or Man Without A Net)
From Washington Post: Click Track - In concert: Neil Young at Constitution Hall by David Malitz:
Neil Young's neverending desire to live in the present can be both his most fascinating and frustrating quality. Only a decade into his career he already possessed one of rock's great songbooks yet continued to add to it with a Woody Allen-like regularity. He sang about war in the '70s, went electronic in the early '80s, formed a grunge superpower alliance with Pearl Jam in the '90s and sang about war again in the '00s. He'll play his hits, but you can tell his heart is always with what's next.
"They're all the same. Good vibrations," he said to the audience before his lone encore number. It was a head-scratching statement, especially as it was just one of two times he addressed the crowd, but so was his choice for set closer. "I feel your strength/I feel your faith in me," he sang on "Walk With Me," another debut. But that lyric almost seemed beside the point. It's great to have fans, but it's Young's faith in himself as an artist that will keep him consistently intriguing for as long as he's still at it.
Neil Young will be performing tonight at the Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Hall Washington, DC. Special guest Bert Jansch will open concert.
