The energy of the essential - Cohen in Copenhagen

Most of the Indie Laundry-boys attends Roskilde Festival right now. Jealous? Absolutly, but I hope they enjoy it fully - the rock, the sun, and that terrible first morning beer that makes the rest of the day worth while. Instead I'll attend and hopefully enjoy a great concert with a master of folk rock. I'm of course refering to Mr. Leonard Cohen. 'Cause tonight his well-reviewed world tour will hit down town Copenhagen, after another superb performance at Glastonbury.

"Ring the bells that still can ring / Forget your perfect offering / There is a crack, a crack in everything / That's how the light gets in." Have beauty ever been served and told with such a simple, but tightful elegance? It might explain why Mr. Leonard Cohen's songs resonantes beyond time. But then again, that would be a horrific simplification of his art. Instead, go see him and get the feeling of why this man's work shouldn't be explained with humble words
