Waxahatchee played Warsaw with Cayetana & Snail Mail (pics, setlist)
Waxahatchee headlined their biggest NYC show yet this weekend when they celebrated the release of Out in the Storm at a sold-out Warsaw on Saturday (7/15). Katie Crutchfield, backed by a four-piece band that included her twin sister Allison Crutchfield, seemed especially fired up performing songs off the new album, whipping her hair around with the force of her guitar playing. Pictures from Saturday night’s show are in the gallery above, and the setlist, which spanned 2015’s Ivy Tripp and 2013’s Cerulean Salt along with the new album, is below.
Waxahatchee’s tour continues through the summer, including more shows with Warsaw openers Cayetana and Snail Mail, as well as shows with Palehound and Outer Spaces, Athens Popfest, and a Merge Showcase in Raleigh, NC with Superchunk and Ex Hex.
Katie Crutchfield recently reviewed “Hop A Plane” off Tegan & Sara’s The Con in honor of its tenth anniversary. Of the song, she said:
In less than two minutes, it conjures a unique feeling of frustrated panic you don’t hear often in song form, a flash of desperation that is immediately gratifying in its relatability. There’s a line early on — “Imagine me there, my heart asleep with no air / Begging ocean please, help me drown these memories” — describing what I understand to be the last gasp of a broken relationship. To me, this lyric has always stuck out because the song itself sounds airless, with no space between the fuzzy guitar, the volatile drums and the quintessential T&S backup vocals.
Speaking of Cayetana, they recently played some shows with Worriers and Camp Cope, with whom they released a split at the beginning of the year. Their set on Saturday night focused on songs from the recently-released New Kind of Normal.
