Alex Winston

""If I don't see y'all clapping, I'm going to go down there and make you clap!" Thus spoke Alex Winston singing "Medicine," her final song at Mercury Lounge. Despite the tune's infectious nature, there were, in fact, some people not clapping in the audience, and Miss Winston did not approve. Following up on her threat, she jumped into the crowd to sing, instantly upping the energy level even as her show was winding down. It's this type of "devil may care, just have a good time" attitude that personifies Winston's live show. Blazing through a short-but-sweet, 40-minute set, she jumped around, did a rock power slide, played a song almost entirely by herself and generally made sure that, if anything, people would remember her having fun on stage." [CMJ]
Alex Winston headlined the show at Mercury Lounge last night (4/5). Dirty Gold, Two Lights and Warm Ghost were also on the bill. A set of pictures, and a video from the show, below...

Wish i could comment on the CMJ article, b/c i totally disagree with them. She came off as a bossy spoiled princess when she ordered the crowd to clap (or she would throw her tambourine at them) on multiple occasions. Her band seemed very over-rehearsed and the only member with any enthusiasm was the lead back-up vocalist. I really like her music and was very excited to see her set, but I don't take kindly to divas yelling at the crowd. It's been a while since I've been to a show that made me want to completely stop listening to that person's music... but yeah, I think I'm done with Alex Winston. Also there were a TON of pussy-whipped dudes there who looked miserable - at least that was entertaining.

I enjoyed Alex Winston's set, but I'm almost certain that Warm Ghost is the worst band I've ever seen. I recognized at least a couple Garage Band drum loops from their performance even.

They were a poor rehash of tropes that were bad in the 80s when they were fresh.

It's a shame really: their terribleness is likely what I'll remember longest about the show.
