RNR News and Notes

 

Despite temperatures in the triple digits - which don't bode well with goths - The Cure's Pasadena Daydream Festival took place over the weekend, with sets sets from Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, Throwing Muses, The Joy Formidable, Chelsea Wolfe, The Twilight Sad, Emma Ruth Rundle, Kaelan Mikla, and of course - The Cure.  

 

In addition to donating $1 from every festival ticket sold to the charities Free Arts for Abused Children, Inner-City Arts, Little Kids Rock, Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and The Painted Turtle, Robert Smith autographed one of his signature Schecter UltraCure guitars he played at the festival and donated it to a charity auction

 

While The Cure didn't play Disintegration in full, they did play a jam packed set, including renditions of  “Plainsong,” “Pictures of You,” “High,” “Lovesong,” “Fascination Street,” “Push,” “In Between Days,” “Just Like Heaven,” “A Forest,” “Primary,” “The Caterpillar,” “The Walk,” “Friday I’m In Love,” “Close to Me,” “Why Can’t I Be You,” “Boys Don’t Cry”


Among the fans in attendance was one Lady Gaga - who can be seen dancing in the fan shot video below - and commented “I love the Cure, felt my old self come alive tonight, what a show.”
