Lightning Bolt @ 285 Kent
Lightning Bolt

Spazzy destruction duo Lightning Bolt played 285 Kent on Thursday (9/20) the day before blessing ATP I'll Be Your Mirror on Friday (9/21). The show was also one of two NYC dates for Indian Jewelry, who blessed Public Assembly the following night (on 9/21) as part of Et Cetera. Pictures from the 285 Kent show, which featured a drum-off between Greg Fox & Kid Millions, are in this post.

Lightning Bolt's tour in support of their new compilation Oblivian Hunter comes to a close at the Paradise in Boston today (9/23). The record is currently available for order via LOAD Records.

Stream the song "King Candy" from said release and check out more pictures and a great HD video of Lightning Bolt from 285 Kent, below.

Really looks like a crowd of varied personalities

The power went out about three times. Wasn't the venue's fault -- LB brought huge stacks and "these go 11". Todd P was freaking out about the power situation backstage but I think altogether it was a pretty damned solid show; things could have gone a lot worse with that many people moshing. I literally tasted the sweat in the air and my lenses got fogged, as you can see in a few shots.

4:45. I'm pretty sure that the universal opinion is that Lightning Bolt is objectively better than the band Real Estate.

Maybe it wasn't such a bad thing that I missed out on this (especially since I've seen LB a few times befo' in the past)


8:04: Hey, if that's what 4:45 wants to listen to, that's fine by me. His (or hers) is the one time I've seen here an opinion by someone that wasn't BS trash talk.

8:28: Eh, I think there were varied personalities moreso at the shows I went to of theirs the last couple of years. This show just looks like it was "varied personalities", meaning trendy doofuses.

EVEN REAL ESTATE HAS TO ADMIT LIGHTNING BOLT IS WAY BETTER.

This venue sucks. Besides being a fucking fire trap and having a crappy bar. I left a few minutes before midnight with a headache from enduring crappy opening bands, and LB hadn't even come on yet, which was ridiculous. Fortunately have seen them before and will have to catch them another time at a different venue, whole night was a bummer.

@ 2:46 - Wrong. Realistic is more like it. The venue is a dump.

@ 11:30 trust me..285 hates you too

Great show, but I couldn't make my way to the baƱo, so I just had to stand there and surreptitiously wet myself. Luckily I was wearing black slacks, and the music drowned out the faint sound of liquid trickling down my leg, which otherwise might have been audible to anyone nearby. Not a bad way to spend a night.
