The Vaccines @ T5 1/31/2012
"When you're a kid and you see these people in these bands, you think they're these perfect beings beamed down from space," says [Vaccines' frontman Justin] Young. "I definitely don't feel like a different person, but perhaps I'm expected to be. I really didn't want to make a record about being in a band and being a musician. I think that really disconnects you from your audience, because how can anyone relate to being in a band? So I wanted to talk about it from a human perspective, rather than a musician's perspective. I think when you get into your mid 20s, you realize how big and bad the world is and no matter how much you cry over spilled milk, no one is gonna mop it up for you. The world is a cruel place and it's like realizing that." - [Metro US]UK indie rockers The Vaccines headlined Terminal 5 last night (1/31) as part of their current North American tour. Local band DIIV made a rare NYC appearance as openers. Did you go to the show?
The Vaccines tour rolls on tonight at Washington DC's 9:30 Club. More pics from T5 are below.
