"Grimes.The most amazing show. God I will marry you illegally in a heartbeat." - @HannahKuo

Grimes @ MHOW, 10/25/2012
Grimes

"I took Dramamine before the show and that's why I'm forgetting the words to my songs!" admitted/joked Grimes' Claire Boucher last night on stage. Lyric recollection or not, Grimes packed Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (10/25) for the first of four back-to-back, sold-out NYC shows, and fans (many of whom have adopted Claire's style) were there to dance. With a stage adorned with flora and backed by Myths (who did their own support set as well), Grimes kept everyone moving. Mykki Blanco, who fared pretty well at CMJ too, opened the night.

Tonight, Grimes moves to Bowery Ballroom with openers Elite Gymnastics and just-announced Blood Orange. She'll stay at Bowery for Saturday's show (10/27) then it's back to MHOW for her final NYC show on Sunday (10/28). Different openers each night while in NYC. More pictures from Music Hall of Williamsburg are below.

Wish we had Elite Gymnastics and Blood Orange. Myths was horrid.

Who ever made that RUINS rip-off shirt should be killed

show was subpar; i'm attributing it to her recent bout of tinnitus. i mean, she barely even sang and her set only lasted about an hour.

Would you prefer to take Grimes from behind in a filthy dumpster or have her blow you while standing in a pile of medical waste?

"and fans (many of whom have adopted Claire's style)"

even more reason to loathe this broad.

Thanks for the pics! Wasn't able to make it, and these pics made me feel not so bad about that.

What does this have to do with Walking Dead?

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2012 4:33 PM

why are posts about women musicians so often connected to style and looks? usually BV is better than this.

also yeah, myths was TERRIBLE.

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2012 4:35 PM

because female musicians more often than not have style/looks worth discussing, as opposed to the bulk of male musicians.

also grimes, ya really need to dye your hair back to blonde - this 'puke green/shit brown' coloring isn't working for anyone.

As tempting as it must be to trot out the trite feminist vomit so as to feel like one's parents didn't waste $150K on a useless college degree, beta male indie rockers are mocked here pretty relentlessly.

sounds like someone's sore. sorry you hate feminism (which is only practiced in college nowadays?! news to me!), but you're using some faulty logic about the rest of it, too. BV's posts themselves are NOT usually about an artist's style, and they don't mock anyone, either. if y'all are pursuing some bullshit in the comments that's yr garbage to stew in, but the focus of the post, as written by a BV contributor, is typically music.

5:50 - sausage post is down the block. the moose out front should have told you that, cupcake.

for real the best new music in the new century so far. unparaleled.

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2012 10:09 PM

I honestly think that everyone who likes Grimes is being paid to do so. There is no other conceivable explanation.

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2012 10:12 PM

10:09 - New GYBE is stunning, and this shit is not even in the same universe. So, no, so NOT best new music in the new century. AT ALL.

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2012 10:47 PM

Show was super fun. Grimes haters - why are you even bothering to look at these pics? You clearly have nothing better to do.

lol GYBE is so last century how old ar yuo enjoy tha dad music

^ does not understand how centuries work. failed home ec.

Posted by Anonymous | October 27, 2012 7:48 AM

^ The 20th century was the period between January 1, 1901 and December 31, 2000. The 21st century began on January 1, 2001 and will end on December 31, 2100. Seeing as how the first 4 GYBE records (most of their output) came out before December 31, 2000, she would seem to know more about how centuries work than you do.

LOL, you dumb old fuck.

Thanks for sharing the information, It's very informative and helpful.

The Grimes album is good, provided you shield your eyes to virtually everything else associated with her. Its rough.

2:58 = 7:48 (i.e. doesn't like how stupid he actually is being pointed out).

Amirite?

^ Lets add 10:47 to that too, while we're at it.

^ the single most powerful hurricane in the history of the north Atlantic is bearing down on NYC, it's 4:13/4:15 in the morning, and you are commenting on some Warren Commission like single-poster conspiracy theory?

You're not from around here, are you stranger?

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2012 6:18 AM

^ Add 6:18 also. So fucking stupid.
