The Rapture @ SPIN
The Rapture, whose last proper NYC show was a sold out one at Music Hall of Williamsburg, play a sold out show at Webster Hall tonight (9/23) as part of a larger tour in support of their recently released DFA album. Tonight's show, with Chain and the Gang, is now sold out. Earlier this week the the Rapture played six songs at an invite-only event at SPIN's NYC offices...
"Opening with a newbie, "In The Grace of Your Love," the guys warmed up the already-sweaty room before delving into four classics: "Get Myself Into It," "W.A.Y.U.H.," "House of Jealous Lovers" and "Echoes." The band's antics showed not an ounce of age, which can sadly often cripple performers aiming to reestablish themselves years later. The Rapture, however, moved and wailed with the energy and passion of teenagers and immediately brushed aside any notion that time had gone by.
I was close enough to see Luke Jenner close his ultramarine blue eyes and grip the mic as if he were right where he should be. Gabriel Andruzzi switched off between saxophone and cowbell, and to be honest, I am not sure which was more captivating. I have seriously never seen a cowbell upstage anyone before, and on Tuesday night, I'm confident I did." [Huffington Post]
