Kvelertak @ Europa
Before the Rocks Off/BrooklynVegan showcase, Kvelertak and Skeletonwitch hit Europa on 10/21 with support from Barn Burner, Turbid North, and Battlecross. Though I missed all support due to the showcase's early start, I arrived just in time for Kvelertak and the ensuing moshing, stage dives, fist pumps, and insanity. The crowd was insane for the band and just got wilder when the band dove into the crowd for a bout of crowd-surfing. The highlight of the show for me happened moments after that, when one of the guitarists played from the middle of the pit and eventually handed over his guitar to another audience member. Pictures of that, and the whole set are below.
After Europa I stopped in to catch the great Weekend at our official showcase, but then headed to Saint Vitus for a second, secret Kvelertak set that went down early Saturday morning. Pictures from both Brooklyn Kvelertak shows below...
