There aren't many singers out there that can match Cave's sheer magnetism. He cavorted and thrusted his way around the stage with a burning intensity, alternately the rock pope or the rock Lucifer, depending on the track. Either way, it seemed likely that the crowd would have done anything he asked of them during that performance. Luckily, all he asked for was their undivided attention, as he tore through "Tupelo," "Higgs Boson Blues," "Mercy Seat" and "Jubilee Street."
All of which laid the foundation for closing track "Stagger Lee," the filthiest ballad known to man. It was a dark ending, and even though Osheaga cut the sound halfway through, it didn't stop Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds from finishing their tale of blood and debauchery.
