The Joy Formidable @ Webster Hall
Joy Formidable

Feisty Welsh trio The Joy Formidable brought their tour with Blood Red Shoes to NYC last week for shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg (4/17) and Webster Hall (4/18). Sets pretty evenly split between both full lengths and their A Balloon Called Moaning EP, ending both shows with big hit, "Whirring." Pictures from the Webster Hall show, including opener You Won't and Joy Formidable's setlist, are in this post. Pictures from the MHOW show are HERE.
