"The Kills at pier 63 were incredible tonight! Jamie Hince you are the king!" - @gibsondaniel

The Kills on Pier 63 - 8/18/12
The Kills

The Kills wrapped up their tour over the weekend with a free Converse City Carnage show on Pier 63 in NYC with Black Bananas and Viva Viva (which was "sold out") and a show at Montauk's Surf Lodge the next day (8/19). The Kills played material off all four of their full length albums, focusing mainly on 2011's Blood Pressures, and also including a good chunk of their 2003 debut.

More pictures, videos, and the setlist from the show are below.

If you tattoo "The White Stripes" on your arm, you might be a retard.

maybe the tattoo is ironic, you hipsters do love irony.

I wanna bang Alison Mosshart in that don't tell my friedns sorta way. She is "gross hot"

Posted by anonymous | August 20, 2012 1:43 PM

ya jamie likes to flick her hair...do we really need 30 photos?? Seems like you just had your finger on the shutter no stop for all 3 songs...gotta show them all although only a third are unique.

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2012 1:45 PM

Hold on a minute - in between the two retarded tattoo pix, is his hair tied up in a tiny ponytail? Someone's locked up douche of the year!

Posted by Go)))d | August 20, 2012 1:46 PM

can the real Royal Trux play again, so these hacks can go away?

stick a fork in it, it's done.

1:45 -you're seriously the biggest idiot. Jamie??? Obviously you don't even know the kills. Her name is Alison you asshole and if you actually liked the band you would enjoy these wonderful photos.

Posted by Anonymous | August 20, 2012 3:42 PM

well I hope at least these poseurs paid Herrema well for stealing her act.

3:42 - Nice joke. Because you know that Jamie is the guy in The Kills and not the woman. Clever what you did there. Hardy Har. Of course, on the off chance that you're not trying to make a joke, you and the White Stripes/Kills tattoo guy should get together and hang out.

Agreed that the venue was a pleasant change of pace on a beautiful summer night but The Kills have one major problem: 100% cliched rock star attitude and photo poses but 0% songs. Every sludgey, muddy, mid-tempo song simply blended into the next. And those back up stage prop "drummers" weren't even hitting those floor toms. I'm not even sure they were mic'd. Walked the fuck out after about six songs.

What's up with the audio on those clips?

Posted by Joly MacFie | August 21, 2012 6:12 AM

thank you for sharing ALL your photos and not just selecting a few good ones, really appreciate it!! :D

i think these pictures are nice to see for the people who couldn't make it to the show. thanks for sharing.. that's the point! guys are so negative here.. why do you come here just to bitch?? youtube is for bitching, er, bitches. don't kill the music for fuck's sake.

Posted by anon | August 22, 2012 1:24 PM

These are actually some of the finest images ever published on BrooklynVegan.

Posted by Crosseyed Sniper | August 22, 2012 1:54 PM

I'll say this much...the photos sure make the show seem better than it actually was.

Posted by Anonymous | August 22, 2012 2:45 PM

WOW - lay OFF the photoshop! Jesus.
The sharpening is so overkill that beautiful photos end up looking manufactured and painful to look at.

Such a shame for great shots to be ruined by such lack of restraint

Thanks for sharing, this is a fantastic post. Really Great. I'm a dental care college student. Just started my second semester and my choice is Dentistry.

Great pix, wish I could have been there. And whadda buncha whiners on this site! Nothing new, but sad that some think it's cool to be negative. Nobody cares that you don't like this band! It only makes you (and me natch) look like dinguses. Or is that dingi? Dingeye? Anyway, nice to see a real rock band make people happy.

The funny thing is, people making sarcastic remarks about hipsters is so hipster.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 3:16 PM

It's so 'hipster' to point out the two worst tattoos of bands I've ever seen on a person who is going to regret them in about 4 months? OK, then. I guess I'm a hipster! Yay, me.

I read somewhere that all the BrooklynVegan photographers have a weekly circle-jerk together. Is that true?
