Majical Cloudz, Moon King @ Glasslands – 9/13/2013
Majical Cloudz are no strangers to NYC, having played a few times here this year already. This tour, with fellow Toronto’s shoegazy Moon King (whose Daniel Woodhead is a sometimes-member of his brother Airick’s band Doldrums, who like Majical Cloudz, appeared on Grimes’ Visions), brought them through for two shows and we caught Friday’s set (9/13) at Glasslands. (They played Mercury Lounge on Saturday, 9/14.) Main man Devon Welsh is an intense frontman who likes to connect with the audience, and confessed he had a fantasy of the entire audience pogo-ing to “Mister.” Most of the crowd was happy to oblige. The night started off with a candlelit set from Matthew E. Duffy and pictures from the Glasslands show are in this post.
Welsh also said these will be Majical Cloudz’s last live shows for a while, so if you missed these you may have to wait a while. More pics from Glasslands below…
