U.S. Girls played the final night at The Dance (pics, setlist)

After less than five months open, Manhattan club The Dance is sadly closing its doors, and U.S. Girls were on hand to bid it farewell on Tuesday night (2/18) with a performance (and a bouquet of flowers). They’re releasing a new album, Heavy Light, on March 6 via 4AD, and they’ve been using a brief run of shows this month to test out the new material, and debut a new live band. For their shows supporting 2018’s In A Poem Unlimited, Meg Remy had an eight-piece band along with her, to mind-blowing effect. There are still eight people onstage for her current live setup, but a few new faces join the crew. Three vocalists stand to Meg’s left (they also play guitar and bass) and when their voices join Meg’s and those of the rest of the band, they make for a sublime chorus. Meanwhile, two percussionists keep a tight, funky groove locked in, and plenty of people took that as their cue to dance their way through the show.

U.S. Girls’ set was heavy on their new songs, including recent singles “4 American Dollars” and “Overtime,” but also included a few In A Poem Unlimited tracks. See the full setlist below, and check out pictures from Tuesday night, including opener John Also Bennett, in the gallery above.

U.S. Girls return to the road on tour this spring, including a Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 6.
