    Mogwai's first Brazilian show since 2002.
    On stage for an hour from 22:30 to 23:30 (according to the schedule)

    Seems the venue was late opening and as a result Mogwai played beyond their allocated time slot: "The stage manager in Sao Paulo has threatened to fuck us up in Rio because we ran over time. I look forward to it.......Immensely." (Martin on Twitter)


    Other artists included KTL, Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto, Squarepusher, Four Tet, Rustie


    From (via Google Translate):

    The headliner Cee-Lo Green is still present on the stage when the Scottish band Mogwai began their show at 22h40 at the Sónar festival on Saturday (12), in Sao Paulo, Sónar stage before a packed hall.

    With a sound so loud it made the seats of the auditorium shake, the post-rock band performed "White Noise", "Werewolf", "Jim Morrison", "Mogwai Fears Satan" and "Rano Pano," among others.

    The instrumental sound - except for some tracks unintelligibly sung by the keyboardist - was decorated with beautiful images on the screen and lights that accompanied the cadence of the songs - blues in quiet moments, and blinking fast and noisy at times.

    The members were already taking their instruments and saying goodbye. At the request of the public, they "broke the law" and played one more song. The choice was a heavy "Batcat" which took the audience to a frenzy so great that the applause was almost as tall as the show's Mogwai.
