Hold Steady / Pains / Ex Hex / Quilt -- 3/15/2014
Inside Red 7, the fresh-faced singer/guitarist Kip Berman of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart stealthily opened the sextet's set, playing a song alone on stage that could have been mistaken for part of the band's sound check in its tentative minimalism before the other five members took their places. Once assembled, they wasted no time in summoning a huge wall of sparkly pop-rock noise by melding shimmery keyboard work, subtly reverberating vocal effects, and liberal use of the whammy bar. The band occasionally slowed down to a more understated, post-punk tempo reminiscent of the Smiths, yet for the most part, on new single "Simple and Sure" as well as "Young Adult Friction," they produced a sugar rush of noise with just enough rock bite to keep things from feeling saccharine.
