Girls

GIRLS doesn’t yet have the power to sell-out Webster Hall, a feat fellow indie giants BEACH HOUSE accomplished in days. But it sure as shit looked like they sold that bitch out, the last row’s backs were mashed against the bar. And with good reason. GIRLS 2009 LP Album is packed tight with authentic 60s-touched pop songs spanning all sorts of genres. Christopher Owens is as enigmatic a frontman as you will probably ever find, and Chet White freezes his bass his lines are so cool. Yeah, it’s pretty obvious why Webster Hall nearly filled to capacity. Most of the show was pretty slow, and I’ll be honest I wish I had a nice couch that shit would have been raw. But it was kinda worth it to stand for the moments when GIRLS straight blew-up onstage. GIRLS does bounce between genres, and they land on slow jams more often than not. But they also stop on land mines, and nowhere is that more evident than on Lust For Life, which is so clearly their best song it’s just so phenomenal. And GIRLS just can’t help but be GIRLS, putting flowers all over the stage (flowers are kinda their signature) and having a frontman who’s legit a little bit crazy. During Lust For Life, Owens lowered his guitar and slung his left leg over the neck, while still playing, as he sang “instead I’m just crazy, I’m totally mad.” Yeah.” [Right Hear]

Girls and Dum Dum Girls are on tour together. That tour took over Webster Hall for a few hours on Saturday night (4/3). Cambridge’s Leisure opened the show (like they’ll do four more times on the tour). More pictures from it, and some videos, below…
