Former Pedro the Lion frontman David Bazan released his synthy new album Blanco in May and brought his tour with his Barsuk labelmate Laura Gibson to NYC on Thursday (7/7) at Bowery Ballroom. Bazan played plenty of the new album, but it was just him with a guitar, rather than the synths of the new album. Laura was also supporting new album, Empire Builder, which she mostly stuck to songs from. It seemed like she had plenty of her own fans in the house, and her opening set was wonderfully received.
