Divine Fits / Cold Cave @ Webster Hall, 10/21/2012

Cold Cave

While many were sleeping off their CMJ hangover, musical or otherwise, Divine Fits were headlining Webster Hall on Sunday night (10/21) joined by support from Cold Cave as part of a larger string of dates. The tight supercrew ran through tracks from their Merge debut, covered Frank Ocean ("Lost") and Wipers ("Doom Town"), and even took a time out to throw fried chicken into the audience (*cough*KoolKeith*cough*).

Cold Cave, the brainchild of Wesley Eisold, was sporting a new version of Cold Cave at the NYC date, now that Dominick Fernow has flown the coop to concentrate on his project Vatican Shadow. Eisold's new band definitely leans more toward the punk end of things, employing the talents of Hunter Burgan (AFI), Cody Votolato (Blood Brothers, yes the brother of Rocky), Jessie Nelson (Head Automatica), and London May (Samhain, Dag Nasty).

More pictures and the setlists from Webster Hall are below.

Divine Fits also covered Petty ("You Got Lucky") and the Stones ("Sway"). C'mon, setlist keeper!

Love the Divine Fits album, but felt like something was missing from the show. It was good, but just not great. I think it needed to be louder or something. Def needed more volume on the guitar, especially during "Would That Not Be Nice" (that song f'ing ROCKS, btw). Although it did seem like they were having some sound issues throughout the show.

Also, drummer needs to throw in some more fills here and there throughout the songs. I feel like every song has that similar-sounding, catchy-ass beat.... which is great... but might as well have a drum machine on. It felt so good to hear a fill, made them sound more like a rock band instead of a bunch of dudes playing to a backing track.

And yes, I was really f'ing stoned and these are the things I noticed. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed it.
