Haim - Webster Hall, NYC - September 3rd, 2013
Haim - Webster Hall, NYC - September 3rd, 2013

As musicians, there's no doubting Haim's pedigree but, more than anything, it's their pop sensibility that has connected with fans during the past year. Unsurprisingly, the infectious melodies of singles "Don't Save Me" and "Forever" proved to be the tipping point of their set, turning what had been a mostly appreciative Webster Hall crowd into a mass of singing and dancing partygoers. If Este and her sisters like the look of "fresh meat" as much as they say they do, they would do well to write a few more songs as catchy as these.

Buoyed by the response to their best songs, the sisters returned for an encore and closed out the night with a sparse and sinister rendition of "Let Me Go," which saw them unite to create the mother of all drum circles. As each one of the sisters pounded away in the strobe lights with hair billowing, arms flailing and blood racing, it was almost like watching three demonic specters performing a creepy rock 'n' roll rite. - [NY Post]

Sibling trio Haim are pretty much full-on sensations at this point, with rabid fans packing Webster Hall last night (9/3) to the gills following an appearance at Philly's Made in America Festival over Labor Day Weekend... and the band's debut album is still a month away. Where will they play next in NYC once the album is out? IO Echo, who also played over the weekend at Warm Up and will tour with Haim this fall, opened the show and pictures from their sets -- including one of Haim's setlist -- are in this post.

Can't wait for "Haim, the porno" on DVD...

Caught most of the show in the guy in front of me's iPhone screen. His grainy video got 5 likes on Instagram, validating the minor obstruction. I was so proud of him.

Ugly, boring, overhyped sister/whores

"Where will they play next in NYC once the album is out?"

As if that's really a mystery. Terminal 5.

10 songs? How long did that take, 35 minutes?

people wouldnt listen to them if they werent attractive.

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2013 2:44 PM

I wouldn't necessarily equate Haim with "attractive" in any way whatsoever.

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2013 2:49 PM

^^ correct

get ready for 10,000 blog posts about them..it's gonna be a long year

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2013 2:56 PM

This was my first time seeing them. I thought I like their music until I saw their disappointed live show at Webster.

:(

Can I hav money back?

Posted by Penelope | September 4, 2013 2:57 PM

indie rock is really taking off

I think Haim is alright, but nothing special. IO Echo on the other hand, good lord they are atrocious.

BV commenters being worthless, cartoonishly misogynistic trolls. must be a day.

This show was fantastic and they are all gorgeous.

BV commentators need to drop the guitar and drumsticks. If it doesn't pay for your shitty bushwick apartment then pick up a textbook and join the university of Phoenix.

4:04 I'm not a musician. Nevermind, I'm actually just a master of playing the A$$ tRuMpEt. Either way, I hate my day job and this gets my rocks off.

Aye. IO Echo nailed it last night. New convert. @2:11

Haim are good musicians.. I'll say that much.

"Haim are good musicians.. I'll say that much."

Yeah? I suppose if you're grading em on a Meg White to Courtney Love curve of virtuosity.

I heard the Haimen Sisters are boning DIIV

maybe they could all take turns sitting on a photocopier (use windex on the glass in between sittings)

NOT attractive, they're all DUMPY

Posted by Anonymous | September 5, 2013 8:08 AM

Posted by Anonymous | September 5, 2013 8:24 AM

Haim is doing great for themselves. Love the video for "The Wire" - preordered that album right away! Drops 9/30

Posted by Bob | September 21, 2013 10:41 AM

Ahh I'd kill to see their live show! I've been watching the video for "The Wire" http://smarturl.it/HAIM_Wire I'm beyond hooked

Posted by Rachel | September 22, 2013 8:24 PM

HAIM is one the top rising bands of 2014! They give me that Fleetwood Mac vibe with extra funk. I got my pre-order on for Days Are Gone! https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/days-are-gone/id681237313

Posted by Jordan | September 23, 2013 1:05 PM

HAIM is really terrible. Just a bunch of rich girls, just another case of having plenty of money to PR yourself into the retarded opinions of hype bloggers. This band is trying anything to be popular; please stop writing about any fucking band who can afford to pay for coverage. Peace

Posted by carl | September 25, 2013 9:45 AM

Haim and Fire Tiger are my two favorite 80's inspired bands today.

Posted by Leighton | September 29, 2013 2:18 PM

First of all I'm from Vancouver Canada and saw Haim on SNL ..loved their sound/music style. I am shocked by the ugly nature of most commentors...harsh- and speaks volumes about their serious lack of essence.....real dark energies...sad. Haim live your creativity and have fun!

Posted by Cheryl | November 24, 2013 4:05 AM

Terrible and boring...

Posted by D Man | November 24, 2013 8:34 AM

Haim makes me cringe. It's like watching rich girls at a sweet 16 trying to play rockstar, while everyone plays along for their big day. Awkward facial expressions with faux rock vocal inflection, while trying to play cute or something. it doesn't work for me

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2013 11:20 PM

Yawn. These ladies will be forgotten soon enough - too much hype and so little substance.

Posted by Anonymous | December 5, 2013 8:13 PM

Haim really is terrible. Not worthy at all. Those are the hard facts folks.

Posted by Super Smithy | February 6, 2014 10:34 AM

They're going to disappear soon enough.

For every one here, I don't know what caused all the bad outpouring of conversation, I simply shared a song, didn't realize I was going to be attacked for posting it. Let alone have one of my dear friends attacked for defending me. It was never intended to cause negativity, if you don't like a song, please just move along. If you wish to make a statement then make it and go, No trolls needed.
