Julianna Barwick @ LPR
"Julianna Barwick started off the night and in very simple terms her set was incredible... Eluvium was next on the bill...and his set turned out to be also quite impressive. It was a mix of quiet but weeping guitar work, to harsh and fast played guitar buzz on top of low key to surprising beat driven piano pieces. Throughout the set there was various nature like samples being played as well as the other members in his live band using Wii remotes that were connected to there computers that were somehow manipulating the sounds of there instruments (something that was defiantly amusing to watch). While Eluvium set was quite terrific it was kind of overshadow by the earlier set of the night that had just left me so speechless." [Witchmond]That review is from the May 17th at DC9. Two nights later (last night, May 19th) the Eluvium/Barwick tour hit Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. It was followed by an after-party in Brooklyn that included a live set by Blissed Out and DJ sets by Pitchork's Ryan Schreiber (RAVVES), Chocolate Bobka's McGregor (McG), Todd P and Erez Avissar who is also the one who took almost all of the pictures of the party that are in this post. The ones of Julianna Barwick and Eluvium at LPR were taken by Christopher Person. Both of their sets of pictures continue below...
