Girls @ Terminal 5
Girls

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.

Real Estate and Girls both DJ'd at the show's afterparty at Tribeca Grand. How was that? Real Estate have more dates coming up including one for only $5.00 in Queens.

Terminal 5 was hungry. It ate all the sound and an over-capacity amount of $32 tickets.

I can't get behind this band. I don't understand how others do. The guy just does NOT HAVE A GOOD VOICE. Besides that, comparisons to the Beach Boys, Buddy Holly make no sense. Want to know why? There are NO HOOKS IN THE DAMN SONGS. None to be found at all. It's just mid-tempo drivel with a guy sounding like he's doing is best to do a douchey voice. Can someone fill me in?

I had those shorts in sixth grade! Also, why does the members of Girls always look so pouty.

You know, it's totally not about a "GOOD VOICE"- c'amon. It's about if you have conviction when you're singing your stories on stage, and Girls succeed in being good story tellers. Many consider Neil Young's voice also grating, but again the meat is in what he is singing about and his honesty in carrying it out.

I've listened to plenty of GOOD VOICE (s) that don't tell me anything at all.

Do you think dude wore underpants or went commando?

Posted by Anonymous | January 17, 2012 2:28 PM

2:19,

That's fair and it's not necessarily about having a "GOOD" voice but this guy's vocal style is just so grating and irritating that I can't even pay attention to his "stories".

i love how the site blocks the word that means taking money for coverage, that rymes with "cola" - but only when talking about True Panther or Matador artists... hmm....

Same show two years ago at Maxwell's was epic.

In the unfriendly confines of T5, meh.

T5 is worst than the eventual Terminator 5 movie.
