howlin' Local Natives
It was no secret that it was Local Natives' first time playing the huge Terminal 5 last night. The band mentioned it numerous times throughout their set, and their excitement was obvious. They'd played other venues in New York City before, but last night was different. This was their "first big New York show," as multi-instrumentalist, Kelcey Ayer, frequently alluded to; plus New York City happened to be the place where they recorded their latest release, Hummingbird (French Kiss). Last night was also their first of back to back shows at Terminal 5--a noteworthy feat for any act. Despite that pressure, Local Natives kicked off their performance without a hitch, tearing into Breakers with the sweet multi-part harmonies the band is so well known for. [CMJ]Last month, Local Natives brought their tour back to NYC for two nights at Terminal 5, first with dream popsters Wild Nothing (9/24) and then with Lucius (9/25). The band played almost all of this year's Hummingbird, and did a ton of favorites from their debut, Gorilla Manor, too like "Sun Hands," "Shape Shifter," and their cover of Talking Heads' "Warning Sign." Pictures and the setlist from the first night are in this post.
