The Distillers reunited in 2018, playing their first shows since breaking up in 2006, but until Wednesday night (5/29), their reunion tour hadn't brought them to NYC. That finally changed as The Distillers played Brooklyn Steel for their first NYC show since 2004. The audience were clearly excited to have them back, going nuts from the beginning of the show and prompting frontwoman Brody Dalle to call them the best crowd ever, and give Brooklyn a big shout-out. Sounding as tight and vital as they did when they were last active, she and the band ripped through classics like "Drain the Blood," "City of Angels," "Hall of Mirrors," and more. See the setlist and a few videos from their set below.

Starcrawler opens this leg of The Distillers' tour, and they made a big impression with their wild stage show that includes fake blood and singer Arrow de Wilde jumping into the crowd. Check out pictures of them and The Distillers in the gallery above.
