Cayetana / Chumped / Worriers / Thin Lips at Baby’s All Right – 8/15/15
The great quadruple-billed tour of Cayetana, Chumped, Worriers and Thin Lips wrapped up over the weekend with a BrooklynVegan-presented NYC show on Saturday (8/15) at Baby’s All Right. The show started on the earlier side (7:30 PM) and people were still trickling in when Thin Lips took the stage, but it didn’t take too long for the sold-out venue to fill up. Everyone sounded great, and you could tell fans really did come out for all four bands. Worriers, who were supporting their just-released Imaginary Life album on Don Giovanni, were the only band I’d never seen before (I had only ever seen Lauren solo), but the full band was super tight.
It was an emotional night too, with all four bands giving mini speeches about how important the tour was to them for having more women than men. Anika from Chumped’s story included a time when she actually met Augusta from Cayetana in a bathroom at Fest before either of them were playing in bands, and they talked about how they’d love to play music but didn’t feel like the opportunity was there. Of course, both did end up making music (very good music), and I think everyone in the venue on Saturday was grateful for that.
