Girlpool played Warsaw with Frankie Cosmos’ new band Lexie (review)
Girlpool brought their tour to Brooklyn's Warsaw for a sold-out show on Friday (6/9) in support of their excellent new album Powerplant. Like when we caught them during SXSW, main Girlpool members Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker were joined by a drummer and a second guitarist. They sound great as a band, but they've kept that intimate feel that they had at the beginning. From the minute Harmony and Cleo stepped on stage, it was easy to see why it sold out. Harmony and Cleo have undeniable chemistry as performers, from playful handshakes and banter in between songs to singing in perfect harmony. Their set consisted mostly of new songs but also featured some older songs like "Chinatown" and "Cherry Picking", that got a huge reaction from the crowd.
Opening was Lexie, a new band of main Frankie Cosmos member Greta Kline, with Warehouse members Alex Bailey and Doug Bleichner. For Frankie Cosmos fans (and even those who haven't been quite sold on Frankie), they're worth a listen. Greta and Doug's vocals are a great pair and their energetic, guitar-heavy performances show a nice, different side of Greta. Lexie's debut album Record Time! came out two days before the show, and you can stream that below.
Brooklyn's IAN SWEET also opened the show and were probably the most fun to watch that night. Singer Jillian Medford claimed the crowd "probably didn't know who they were." If that's true, IAN SWEET definitely won them over.
