Show Review: Raveonettes @ Emo’s (4/12)
On a night that had me out for Hunx and His Punx headlining indoors at Emo’s, we were able to manage some last-minute access to bring you a quick review and some shots of The Raveonettes outdoors. Follow the jump for more.
Shapes Have Fangs brought a mixed stage presence, part frenetic, partstatic and the full sound of garage rock while the crowd filtered into the patio room. Tamaryn brought shoegazing and a great rhythm section. And red lights, only red lights. I know they did it only because they overheard me complaining about the cave-like conditions inside, heh.
The Raveonettes made me smile. They had the big lights, the stage fills, the mood machines. It suited the band well as they ripped through a significant portion of the new album that has entered my regular listening cycle. “Evil Seeds” was a show highlight, so very good. I left to get a few hours of sleep before work in the morning during what I later found out was the end of the regular set, but have it on good word that “Aly Walk With Me” predictably finished the show. Not a big loss, IMHO, I did see five other bands.
…on a Tuesday.
