Citay’s Ezra Feinberg Recounts The Best of 2010


Best Citay show of the year: four-way toss up between a frigid night in Chicago at Schuba’s; a rainy but lovely night at the Band Room overlooking the stunning hills of the North York Moors, UK; kids going nuts in a San Luis Obispo wreck room; and a serious party in Stockholm opening for Black Mountain.

Best venue of this or any year: The Bottletree in Birmingham, Alabama

Best song with only one lyric: “Little Brown Haired Girls” by Frankie Rose & the Outs

Best song that everyone else also thinks is the best song: “Round and Round” by Ariel Pink

Best album that hasn’t come out yet but that I’ve been listening to a lot and that will be out in very early 2011: Acrylics “Lives and Treasure”

Best border crossing maybe ever: Citay and Vetiver, US to Canada, total wait time 1 minute.

Best Citay bill: Birds of Avalon – Citay – Mitch Easter (no joke) and best song of the night: Mitch Easter’s note-for-note cover of “Twenty-First Century Schizoid Man.”

Best Epic Jam: Citay, The Fruit Bats and Vetiver 30 minute “Hurry on Sundown” at a Winery in Sonoma, California.

Best vocal: Ruth Garbus of Happy Birthday at the end of the song “Girls FM.” Radical falsetto!

Best after-show party: Major dance jammer at Chris Swanson’s in Bloomington, Indiana featuring Citay, Bon Iver, label staff, college kids, and a weird dude who lingered and then passed out sitting up. Rug tearin’ til 6am. One of those nights…
