[Caspian's]... volcanic live show belies its more delicate recorded work, but provided a welcome, if intense, contrast... The seismic sound shifts remained as intense as ever, underlining the band's dramatic yet solid foundation.

Caspian frontman Philip Jamieson has compared the group's songwriting process to "being swept up into a storm"; we'd say the live show has a similarly gripping effect. Prepare to find broken branches in your brain the morning after a Caspian event. - [Bostonist]

The above review comes from a Caspian appearance prior to their journey to SXSW and ensuing tour with Arms & Sleepers. That tour landed at The Studio at Webster Hall on 4/15, and was joined by Sainthood Reps and Golden City.

Pics of Caspian and Arms & Sleepers (our photographer missed both openers), and some recent video, is below....
