Show Pics: War on Drugs @ Emo’s

We get closer to the inevitable demise of the original Emo’s. I get closer to getting through all the photos from shows this month.

This installment features War on Drugs, with Carter Tanton and Purling Hiss opening. I have a few comments and plenty of gloriously bathed in red and yellow shots to burn into your memory. Loud show, good way to end the run I was on…

Carter Tanton is a three piece project featuring, wait for it, Carter Tanton. He is headed to Europe now. It was a subdued set to lead into the manic nature of the middle slot.
