Bat For Lashes played Bowery Ballroom

Bat For Lashes @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC – Sept 25, 2007 (CRED)
Bat For Lashes @ Bowery Ballroom

I wasn’t totally sold on Bat For Lashes before the Bowery show, and I basically feel the same way after seeing them (or “her” as many people refer to them). Natasha Khan is very talented….

NATASHA Khan, the 27-year-old Brit who is Bat for Lashes, has been compared to PJ Harvey, Siouxsie Sioux, Kate Bush and Bjork. Bjork herself has offered effusive praise for Khan; so have Thom Yorke and Devendra Banhart. [The Age]

…., but much of the show left me a little bored. At least one song was clearly a hit, a bunch of others were great, but then there were some that had me daydreaming. The mixed – not your typical “indie” – crowd seemed mostly into the show though – applauding loudly, and my companion even loved it. Maybe I’m just a grump.

She (they) played one cover. At the time I didn’t realize it must have been her famous cover of Bruce Springsteen‘s “Im on Fire”. (was it?)
