Rocket from the Crypt / Ex Hex @ Bowery Ballroom – 4/2/14

Punk ‘n’ roll greats Rocket from the Crypt are currently on a reunion tour which they brought to NYC last night (4/2) at Bowery Ballroom for their first of two sold out shows here. RFTC is one of the many groups that frontman John Reis (aka Speedo) has been in, also including Hot Snakes (who reunited not long ago), Drive Like Jehu, the active Night Marchers and more, and it’s great to see him back in this one, even if it’s only for a short time (he made it sound like on stage that the reunion ends after this tour). Last night, the band played favorites from throughout their career, including “On A Rope,” “Young Livers,” “Born in ’69,” “I’m Not Invisible,” “Straight American Slave,” and tons more. The full setlist is pictured below (though it may not have been played in the exact order).

Last night’s show was doubly great, because it also featured an opening set from Ex Hex, the newest band of indie rock veteran Mary Timony (Wild Flag, Helium, Autoclave), who also played two NYC shows last month after we caught them at SXSW. The band are prepping their debut LP for Merge, and from the many times they’ve previewed those songs live, our hopes for it are high. Mary’s got riffs and solos for days in this band, and they’re always a thrill to watch. Pictures of Ex Hex and RFTC from last night are in this post.

Rocket From the Crypt do it again in NYC TONIGHT (4/3) at The Bell House, and this time they’ll be supported by The So So Glos. The short US tour wraps up this weekend.
