Girls @ Terminal 5
Girls played their largest NYC show yet (an understatement) on Saturday (1/14) when they headlined the sold out Terminal 5 with Real Estate and King Krule. Girls, with their flowers and trio of female backup singers in tow (like they had at their Bowery Ballroom shows), played almost the entire Father, Son, Holy Ghost, in addition to cuts from Album and the Broken Dreams Club EP.
Real Estate only played material from the recently released Days, save for "Fake Blues," from their debut album, and a cover of jangly post-punkers Felt's "Sunlight Bathed the Golden Glow," which if you didn't know was a cover, could have easily passed as a b-side off Days.
With their new albums, Girls and Real Estate are becoming some of the fastest growing bands in indie, but opener King Krule (and Girls' True Panther labelmate) doesn't seem too far behind them. His set at the T5 show was just after he had played sold out shows at Glasslands and Mercury Lounge earlier that week. His feedback seems pretty positive but the twitterverse seems to agree that his set was suffering from bad sound at Terminal 5. Review and pics of the Mercury Lounge show HERE and Glasslands pics HERE.
