The Rapture @ Webster Hall, NYC – 9.23.2011


 

Let’s pretend they didn’t have an opening band.

I’ve heard of The Rapture over the years, but I’ve never listened to their music.  How is that possible you ask?  Do you live in a cave Roselyn?  In a way I do.  Stephanie told me we had to go to this show, so of course I went and wow.  Wow. wOw.  She told me they’ve had better crowds, which is cool, but I didn’t really care cause I was blown away before they were halfway into the first song on their setlist, In The Grace of Your Love.  I bought their latest album of the same name right after the show, it’s a great album, but you have to see this band live.  See them.  This is one of those bands where a recording just isn’t enough.

SIA, Oh Land, Ximena Sarinana at Webster Hall, NYC – 7.26.2011

Beach House – Webster Hall, NYC – 2.25.2011


I am almost a month late with this post, can’t believe I forgot.  Better late than never though right?

The only Beach House song I was very familiar with before seeing them live is Lover of Mine.  I could have listened to more of their music, but sometimes I like to experience a band/musician live, before hearing their recordings.

I was blown away.

I bought their album Teen Dream afterwards.  There really isn’t a better way to describe their music, that show felt like a wonderful dream.
