The Kills w/ The Horrors & Magic Wands | First Ave | 5/11

Magic Wands were very charming. They’re my kind of pop music.

*Yes he is wearing a Jesus and Mary Chain shirt….no this is not The Jesus and Mary Chain….though they could’ve fooled me!

I think most people at the show were afraid of The Horrors, or at least they really didn’t know what to think. The Horrors came out and plastered on the noise. I’m sure they’re sick of being compared to an obvious influence, but they really do perfect the noise much like The Jesus and Mary Chain (and others too…this is just the really obvious one). They were very cool, to say the least.


Then came The Kills. I was super disappointed seeing them because I was expecting new wave revivalists The Killers……just kidding! The Kills came out in absolute style and killed (pun not intended?) with their rootsy punk sound. Hotel is the jerk that took Kate Moss from me. VV is that dirty girl I’ve always wanted.

*See what I mean?
