And of course the Bejar we actually get is very much a character too, albeit a life-size one--he's iconic, magnetic, fascinating. He seems genuinely shy. I'm not sure if he likes being on stage, but he obviously loves the music. Sometimes it looked like he was happy to just kneel down and watch the musicians play. ... I definitely got the sense that he wanted the music to be as amazing and transporting as possible.
I saw Destroyer live a couple of weeks ago (and had seen them back in 2006, as well). I loved the show; it was pretty intense for me for a number of reasons, but in particular, the level to which Bejar was in the music was just really special.
(My one disappointment was that they didn't play "Poor in Love", which is one of my favorites from Kaputt.)
