Jacco / Meatbodies / Dinner @ Baby’s All Right 7/12/2015
Dutch retro psych-pop wunderkind Jacco Gardner wrapped up his current North American tour in NYC on Sunday night (7/12) at Baby’s All Right. While his second album, Hypnophobia, perhaps hews a little too closely to the sound/structure of his debut, Gardner really is great live with a seriously tight band who ably recreate the late-’60s baroque sounds of his albums. His band on this tour included his old Trouble in Mind labelmate (and fellow paisley popper) Matson.
This was an all-around fun, if all-over-the-place, bill with LA garage rockers Meatbodies, who played 4 Knots the day before, as special guests. The night started with Dinner, the Danish synthpop singer whose live shows veer more towards interactive performance art. He’s fun. Pictures from the whole show continue below…
