The Blow / Zambri
Brooklyn venue Glasslands has less than a month left before the corner of S. 2nd & Kent is no longer a hub for live music in Williamsburg (Death by Audio and 285 Kent have already said their farewells), and this past Friday (12/5) they hosted The Blow, Zambri and Cookies. The Blow changed it up a bit from the kind of shows for which they had become known. It used to be Khaela Maricich putting on a show that was as much a concert as it was performance art, and with funny/endearingly awkward banter between songs. But this one was different, with both Khaela and her bandmate Melissa Dyne hunched over keyboards playing a less confrontational set -- one that was maybe not suited for a chatty crowd like the one there. Reviews have been mixed. One person said, "The Blow stripped down sounding absolutely beautiful underneath these 200 people's conversations," while another said, "The Blow kinda #blew tn ;(". Were you there? What did you think?
This was Zambri's first show in a while which pulled mainly from 2012's House of Baasa. You can check out pictures from the whole night in this post. Other upcoming shows at Glasslands before they close include How to Dress Well, Peter Silberman & others, Widowspeak, Quilt & What Moon Things, Bass Drum of Death & Mitski, Trust, Waxahatchee, Jana Hunter and more.
