Ty Segall @ Webster Hall 9/20/2014
Segall's frequent glam-rock references were dusted through the set like a fine layer of glitter; Cronin wore shiny blue facepaint; the crop-circle-esque Manipulator logo provided a backdrop on the Webster stage and adorned Segall's all-white ensemble. But the sonic focus was on those blistering guitar solos that populate so many of the tracks on Manipulator. Segall's fingers only left his strings for an occasional fist-pump or finger-point into the churning crowd. There were very few moments the audience was not wont to mosh, and mosh they did.
Though barricades around the photo pit are customary at Webster Hall shows, neither were present on Thursday. That's because Wednesday's attendees obliterated them, and perhaps management thought it best to forgo setting them up again only to have them ignored. So the stream of kids jumping onstage only to jump off a few seconds later was pretty much constant, including one flannel-clad guy very dedicated to a '90s state of mind who must have made the leap a dozen or so times in the last half of the 20-odd song set. - [Village Voice]
Last night (9/18), Ty Segall played his second of two Webster Hall shows which was just as bonkers as the first night, with a constant stream of (gentle) stage divers and crowdsurfers, including Ty himself where atop the audience he sang his last song of the night.
Thursday was also the first night of the tour's second leg which is with Seattle's charming surf rockers La Luz. Pictures from their set, and more of Ty's set, below...
