Boris played “the classics” at Le Poisson Rouge with Young Widows and Ornament (pics); play ‘Flood’ tonight

Japanese trio Boris finished night one of their two night residency at LPR last night (5/6, the night after playing Boston- pictures are HERE). Last night’s sold out show, with support from Young Widows and Ornament (a member of Growing), featured “All Time Classics” spanning much of Boris’s career. Tonight Boris plays Flood, as well as what they’re describing as a drone/experimental set.

Ornament’s brief experimental droning gave way to Young Widows’ hypnotic compositions. The band grooves harder than most acts out there, layering trance-inducing drum patterns and buzzing walls of noise with irresistibly catchy post-punk.

The “All Time Classics” set was ripping, and smartly avoided most of the band’s recent material. Guitarist Wata was as cool and composed as drummer Atsuo was frenzied and dramatic. The sound was loud and furious enough to justify the sale of the Boris branded earplugs available at the merch table. After trotting out crowd favorites like “Pink,” “Hama,” and “1970,” Boris closed out their set with the fittingly titled “Farewell.”

You can catch Boris at Le Poisson Rouge tonight, supported by Stephen Brodsky (of Cave In) and Amen Dunes, before the tour moves on to Cleveland and then to another two night residency in Chicago. Tickets for LPR tonight are still available.

Set list from night one and more pictures are below.
