Dead Gaze / Mystery Lights @ Seaport Music Fest 2014
There was a lot of smoke during Dead Gaze's set at the penultimate Seaport Music Festival show of 2014 (8/22). Some of it was from the fog machines, some of it was from the hand-rolled cigarette the band's lead guitarist held tightly between his lips the whole show. The Oxford, Mississippi combo's music, fuzzed-out guitar pop, fit well with the atmosphere, as did main man Cole Furlow's hair which was as voluminous as the amps.
Opening were locals Mystery Lights who are straight-up garagey rock n' roll and do it very well. You can catch them tonight (8/25) at Death by Audio with Woodsman and Heaters.
This Friday (8/29) is the final Seaport Music Fest show of the season and is a good one, with Joanna Gruesome and Big Ups which will be a great way to kick off your Labor Day Weekend. More pics from Dead Gaze and Mystery Lights at the Seaport, below...
