Last night Vowws hit the stage at Lincoln Hall to play for a crowd for which most openers could only wish. Almost everyone in the audience was not only aware of Vowws, but knew the words to the songs and were as much their for them as they were for headliner White Lies.
I was not that familiar, but found the set to be very entertaining. The duo hits a lot of Joy Division/The Cure sounds, but their bass hits are more tribal and hypnotic. I don’t know if anyone has coined the term “Industribal,” but that’s what I would call this.
My only issue with their set was that the lighting was too dark to get really good pictures (where I was standing anyway, maybe it was a little more balanced in the middle). I did the best I could.
