Primal Scream

"Never one to play by the rules, the Scream eschewed a greatest hits set and instead focused on the latter half of their career. Just over a third of the 16-song set was devoted to tracks off of their last two records, Riot City Blues and Beautiful Future. Group think/conventional wisdom is that these two records don't hold up very well next to the band's Vanishing Point / XTRMNTR / Evil Heat heyday, but "Country Girl" and "Jail Bird" sounded right at home next to older staples like "Kill All Hippies" and "Miss Lucifer."" [DCist, review of Friday's DC show]
Primal Scream played their final show on their US tour last night at Music Hall of Williamsburg (3/29). One night earlier they were at Webster Hall. Kuroma opened both shows. More pictures and the setlist from the Brooklyn show below...

It was the same setlist douchbag.
Great show with a more stripped down feel after the laser show @ Webster hall.
killa live band!

F***ing EPIC show. Seen them a number of times before, but never seen Bobby that into it; he was fully in his element as frontman last night. (And he also was in better voice than I've ever heard before.) Incredible show, a band at the top of their game. Now if only someone would actually release the album stateside...

Hey! I'm in one of those photos! U rule BV!!! THANK U!!!

Both shows were great! The Webster show had the laser light show, but the Music Hall show was more intimate... I thought that was Damaged off Screamadelica last night.. great set!

absolutely great. one of the best shows in a while. I dunno what kind of lazers were at webster, but there were plenty of full on 'rave' moments at MHOW, serious strobe action throughout. especially nice was how the majority of "Higher than the Sun" was done in near darkness.
