The Kills

The Kills, fresh from Lollapalooza, played two Terminal 5 shows with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and A Place to Bury Strangers. The first show was on Monday (8/8) and the second happened last night (8/9). The Kills focused on material off the recently released Blood Pressures, but also saved time for a few older cuts and a cover of Marilyn Monroe's "One Silver Dollar," which NY Times point out is from what singer Alison Mosshart declared Monroe's "worst movie."

Though not on the bill, BP Fallon, who played Escape to NY over the weekend, also made a surprise appearance at the Terminal 5 shows. According to Barbara S, he made "T5 a whole lot less shitty." Amber Kim says he did "I Believe in Elvis Presley" which is a Jack White-produced song.

We've got pictures from the first night. They continue below...

$4 for a taco? Y'all got robbed.

the kills are f*cking awesome. so happy to see them ruling with this record.

Posted by sheryl | August 10, 2011 1:26 PM

Can't imagine seeing APTBS in that place, but hope they did well and headline a more suitable venue soon!

I enjoyed the Kills Friday set at Lolla, but I wish it hadn't conflicted with the Cults set.

kills tattoo? not a good look

"$4 for a taco? Y'all got robbed."

Add that to the inflated ticket price, and you've got an event that only the brunchwavers can afford

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 1:46 PM

If you can't afford a $4 taco, you may want to google the word "job".

Couldve used an extra 25 minutes of APTBS and 25 minutes of the Kills, will never listen to Pains of Being Pure at Heart again. Indie shwag.

99 cent slice

pretty embarrassing when both your openeres at two separate shows at the same venue are infinitely better than you. Kills=laughable.

great show, great pics.

Look at those poor saps crammed into that dreaded alcove area. One of the many joys of T5.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 2:37 PM

Shit, back in my day you could buy yourself some pink taco for $4. You know what I'm sayin?

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 2:41 PM

as with most of the shows covered on BV, i am not sure there are enough pictures.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 3:08 PM

I'm in love w/ all these photo's & esp. the one w/ my friend Renee & my Kills tattoo. Dana is a phenomenal photographer! The Kills were magnificent both nights...

Posted by Kirby Athurston | August 10, 2011 3:22 PM

Mondays show was good and all but terminal 5 is a shithole of a venue. Epic fail!

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 3:28 PM

i like to check tweets by those BV choose to quote, always find a turn off.

barbara, london riots are great, sign of healthy society. that's exactly what the police state you live in needs.

amber, MM&W and scofield TOO ? TOO? oh my..

Posted by hundred forty generation | August 10, 2011 3:30 PM

yeha the london riots are so great. they only killed about 30 indie labels.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 3:38 PM

really, the best you could come up with was getting pissed that i am concerned for the safety of people living in london? wow...

Posted by barbara s | August 10, 2011 3:41 PM

OH MY GOD, Allison would look SO KILLER in Jorts..

You worthless pieces of shit, NOTHING IS WRONG WITH T5.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 3:47 PM

well the overpriced tacos are the first thing wrong with terminal5.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 3:56 PM

sorry, that's actually the 25th thing wrong with terminal5.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 3:58 PM

APTBS is the real act here. anyway enjoyed the show security people are so friendly. T5 is a great venue for shows.

"T5 > McCarren Pool

Are you for real?

Love the Kills and APTBS, but the second band is fucking terrible. Every song they played sounds the same.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 5:10 PM

What fucking planet are you people living on if you're reading BV and referring to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart as "the second band that played"? They're practically big enough now to headline their own T5 gig.

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 6:22 PM

the kills are insufferable as human beings. alright musically. maybe having BP Fallon play is how they got on Jimmy Fallon.

Posted by thepainsofhorriblebandnames | August 10, 2011 6:29 PM

The Kills were alright like I expected so much more from them and how can they not what "What New York used to be" when they were in freaking NY. A Place To Bury Strangers was shit they almost made my fucking ears bleed. Pains of Being Pure at Heart was just so gay (no offense to gay ppl). Feel free to watch my videos of the concert http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB68CAA2B128C80E8

and 1:37 Cults was freaking awesome at their free show on sunday

is there a photo editor or do you just post every single shot the photographer took

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 7:49 PM

that singer was alana... I dont know if she is a lesbian but she used to work at main drag and I have a super crush on her (alana nuala its true) but do you sing or play guitar?

Anyone else notice that Julianne Moore was in the audience upstairs in the VIP lounge area? Good taste in music!

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 8:01 PM

I noticed JOAN JETT on the VIP crowd

The sound wasn't so good during APTBS yesterday. It was a lot better last time I saw them at Bowery. Felt a bit let down. I hope there's a few new songs in the next album they can use for their meltdown bit 'cause I'm getting kinda bored of the same act.

TPOBPAH were as boring live as on the record. Snoooooooze fest.

The Kills sounded quite alright, bits of feedback aside. I really enjoyed their set. Few can rival the amount of energy they bring on stage. I was hoping they would play a more balanced setlist, though.

I would love to congratulate the guy who kicked that moron moshing into people during APTBS. You were my hero last night!

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2011 8:16 PM

The Kills killed it again. But what a disappointment TPOBPAH turned out to be. I never expected them to be on The Kills's level of professional, but their set bought down the energy of the entire venue. Thank god once The Kills came out, the floor was shaking again.

Kills were fucking great Tuesday night and Pains bored everybody to tears.
