One word: Impressive. The was truly an actual band. This especially apparent at such an intimate venue.
Every member played at least one instrument, everybody sang. They sounded great & professional & really showed their versatility. The guys and lone chick went beyond the typical guitar, base, drums, keyboard. There was a viola, a cello, an upright piano, oh my! Performed were covers of The Smiths, Bruce, the late Jim Carroll, and most of the tracks off their own self titled album, The Airborne Toxic Event.
I must admit, the only song I knew (and still do, at least by title) was “Sometime Around Midnight”. But I like that song & the show was at Webster Hall, so I was game. The trip was well worth it! See them if you get the chance.
