Twin Shadow @ Webster Hall (by Vincent Cornelli)
Twin Shadow

Twin Shadow headlined Webster Hall on Friday, 10/7 tour-mate Diamond Rings. It was the last night of a tour that one night earlier hit the Paradise Rock Club in Boston…

Accompanied by fellow genre-straddler Twin Shadow, O’Regan (of Diamond Rings) went out with a synthy bang at his 2nd to last show on the ‘Clean Cuts’ tour. He covered every inch available to him, dancing–and even rapping- on all four corners of the stage.

…he paired his 80’s infused dance moves with impressively baritone vocals to provide the audience with the best possible idea of what it is to be Diamond Rings.

“Diamonds are multi-faceted and precious, but also the hardest rocks out there,” O’Regan said. “I can cut you if you’re not careful.”

This contrasting quality seems to be representative of his musical identity as a whole. From his deep voice against catchy synth-beats to his colorful makeup against his pale skin, O’Regan’s music is full of clean collisions.

…Diamond Rings’ eccentric style has been compared to that of David Bowie and even Lady Gaga. At the show, he was dressed in a graphic t-shirt, a white leather jacket, a chain necklace, and a pale face of makeup. O’Regan said that he uses fashion as a way to express himself and connect with the world.

“People listen with their eyes,” he stated. “It’s naïve to imagine that image isn’t a big part of being a musician in the modern world.” -[BU Quad]

Pictures from Webster Hall adorn this post, and pictures from the Chicago stop on this tour are viewable here.

If you missed Webster Hall, then hopefully you live in either the Dominican Republic, Nova Scotia, or Asheville, NC. Twin Shadow has dates in all three in the coming weeks, with the latter going down at Moog Fest 2011. Tickets are still available.
