[The Pains of Being Pure at Heart singer/guitarist Kip] Berman, who grew up a Green Bay Packers fan after being born in Madison and living in Milwaukee until he was 9, doesn't exactly ooze confidence. The singer critiqued his vocal capabilities ("I can't sing") and downplayed the band's ambition ("We're making songs people will hopefully like to hear next to other songs on a mixtape").The Pains of Being Pure at Heart hit Bowery Ballroom last night (9/19) with Twin Sister and Wyldlife. Pictures are in this post. After a few days off (in Kip's current home, NYC), Pains will head back out on the road for another string of dates in the US and Canada (and yes, Madison, Wisconsin) that should get them back home during CMJ (which they are currently not scheduled to play). The dates include an appearance at this weekend's Popped! Music Festival in Philadelphia on 9/23.
He even worried that his low-key, everyman vibe wouldn't make for a compelling enough narrative for a newspaper story. "I should create a better tortured artist persona where it's like, 'Then I was getting really heavy into narcotics in the studio and we were fighting all the time'."
Berman said he doesn't remember much about his toddler years in Madison. But he does still have family in Wisconsin, and he's looking forward to a mini-family reunion when his band plays the High Noon Saloon on Monday, Sept. 26. When The Pains of Being Pure at Heart opened for the National at Milwaukee's Riverside Theatre this past April, Berman told the crowd that the after-party would be in the suburbs. "I'm going to my grandparents' house to do laundry. It's important." -[Square]
