The Velvet Teen @ Baby’s All Right – 9/6/14
California’s The Velvet Teen brought their current tour to Baby’s All Right on Saturday (9/6) for their first NYC show in almost three years. (Their last time was opening Minus the Bear’s Highly Refined Pirates tour in 2011 and a Glasslands show that same week.) They played a good mix of the old and the new, with some favorites in there like “Radiapathy,” “Noi Boi” and “Naked Girl.” Their lineup’s shifted a lot over the years, and they’re a five-piece now with the same bassist and drummer they’ve had for a while, a new guitarist and the addition of a keyboard player. They sounded great, really full, and the crowd was way into them. It was pretty packed in there, and definitely full of people who love The Velvet Teen. In between songs, someone yelled out, “YOU HAVE REALLY DEDICATED FANS!” That is true.
Local support came from noise/psych rockers Sunflower Bean and synthy popsters Shy Hunters. More pictures of all three bands and one of TVT’s setlist, below…
