The Atlas Moth @ Union Pool
The Atlas Moth

The Atlas Moth / KEN Mode overcame a damp, bitterly cold night at Union Pool on Saturday with locals The Year is One as part of an East Coast/Midwest tour. Both touring bands focused on material from their new LPs on Profound Lore. The Atlas Moth's An Ache for Distance was recently released on the label. KEN Mode's Venerable hit earlier this year.

The Atlas Moth fought through technical issues for the first portion of their set, but resumed a triple guitar attack by the time they hit the title track from their current LP. The band brought along disco-ball style lighting in multiple colors to add a psychedelic visual touch.

KEN Mode, sporting their third bass player in their last three NYC appearances, welcomed Andrew LaCour (of Khann) on low-end for this tour. Though the changing bass slot may weigh heavily on some bands, KEN Mode are no more worse for wear; the Canadian band sounded as vicious as ever on songs like "Book of Muscle".

More pictures and video from Brooklyn, as well as the remaining tour dates, are below...

Haha, exactly nygrump! Hell, I was at Coney Island on Saturday night (much windier by the shore) and I think I was the only one there with a t-shirt on.
