The Black Angels at Music Hall of Williamsburg
Now here's a show which made me think a little. The Black Angels came out on stage and I said to myself "They're dressed up as Slipknot!" Now, The Black Angels's music is heavy but not in a metal sort of way. The rhythms are driving but do not inspire headbanging. I hope they're not trying to appeal to the metal crowd. That won't work work, folks. At least I hope it won't. I wasn't expecting a mosh pit at this show either, but...
The Black Angels at South Street Seaport
Taking photos from the crowd at the South Street Seaport is no fun. I couldn't move at all and missed some important shots. Example: this band has a drummer. Now just being in the crowd and enjoying the music is kind of nice except for all the pushing and pummeling. Fortunately The Black Angels' heavy, slow and intense style focused the crowd on the music. Okay, there was a small mosh pit (which made no sense) but at least it stayed small.
