BMRC @ T5, 5/4/2013
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

I saw Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at Brownies around the time of their first record and the thing I remember most about that show was the band playing, basically, in sillouhette thanks to some airport-runway-grade lights backlighting their stage setup. Deaf and blind, that's how they wanted us. But it was a very effective visual element. A dozen years or so on and the band are playing much bigger places -- Saturday (5/4) at Terminal 5 on this tour that also hit Austin Psych Fest -- but BRMC still keep things relatively simple: black leather and demin, crunchy VU-inspired tunes, and lights aimed out.

Bass Drum of Death, who opened the show and played Death by Audio later that night, will be back in July. More pictures from T5 are below.
