Toadies/Helmet/Ume at Webster Hall 8/02/2012

For a band of only three people, Ume had incredible power -- they blasted sound and strength out into the crowd at Webster Hall.

Frontwoman Lauren Larson's frenetic energy and distorted guitar meant lots of movement -- Ume is perfectly suited to playing on a huge stage with ample room to move about.

While some may prefer the raw energy of their live show, I prefer the nuances on their album. The standout tracks on album Phantoms are "Captive," "Destroyer," and "Dancing Blind."-[After The Show]

Webster Hall celebrated the 1990s last night (8/2) with a pair of bands that cut their teeth in the era, and another that worships at the altar of some it's biggest names. Helmet and Toadies joined forces with Austin's Ume to play the East Village venue, part of the latter two's ongoing set of dates together and a short set of dates with Ume. Pictures and video from Webster Hall are below, including a video of "I Burn" during Toadies set that featured members of Helmet and Ume.

Remember when Beavis & Butt-Head watched the "Possum Kingdom" video? That shit was great.

Got in free, and Helmet would have been worth paying for... still very tight. Toadies were a bit of a bore.

No Toadies secret show? I would've been down for that.

How Helmet doesn't play "Unsung" is unheard of

Hey, remember when Helmet put out quality CDs and gave enthralling, memorable performances?

Yeah, me neither.

Ume music sounds pretty cool, but what I really want is Lauren Larson's frenetic energy wild sex in the woods

I'd blow a massive load up her blonde cunt.

5:20: Haha, "I already made up my mind. This sucks".

5:30: I'm with you on every single word.

5:49: indeed

6:28: token hipster "they were soooooo much better before *insert way back year here*".

6:41: I dunno.

6:50: Your guess is as good as mine.

Jay Porks 1021: Believe it or don't there's other songs besides "Unsung" (which in fact is probably one of the most overrated anyway).

11:41: Hey, remember when hipsters actually had witty and relevant commentary that was "ironically" entertaining?

Yeah, me neither.

10:00: Haha, didn't know that. Interesting.

10:21: Agreed.

10:35: I guess the trendies would go for her, seeing as though she could probably pass for being in some band like Wild Flag or Vivian Girls or Screaming Females or some shit like that.

2:22: You'd sooner have a "run-in" at the ambiguously disguised bi-curious place know as the Union Pool.


Enjoy life everyone! :)

^ almost forgot - not with bad musical taste, but rather without musical taste whatsoever. must be the herpes swelling up his brain again, poor thing. well, that's what happens when you get ass raped by a herd of pigs.

^ Sorry to hear that the bouncer wouldn't let you in to the gay nightclub with those flaming humongous pink sunglasses on along with the shorty-short shorts and ugly flip-flops on, you gel head with a popped collar. Life is too short to have your period again for that small inconvenience.

Good to see none of these people are fat.

12:05 - bad herpes day again? so sad. no, it's really not. don't worry, those pigs you've come to love will be back soon enough.
