Semi Precious Weapons: Glamorous Thunder At The Bowery Ballroom

Semi Precious Weapons: April 26 @ Bowe
ry Ballroom, New York, NY

Sold out! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Semi Precious Weapons came home Monday night and took to the Bowery Ballroom stage greeted by a sold out crowd. When I arrived at the venue, unpleasantly soggy from the pouring rain, there was already a line of people waiting to get in. About five minutes later, I looked back and I couldn't see where the line ended.

From the moment the band launched into "Semi Precious Weapons" to their closing number "Rock 'N' Roll Never Looked So Beautiful," the Weapons precious denizens were enthusiastic, energetic and loud! I have been to many shows where the crowd sings along. But, I'm not sure when the last time I've heard singing along at such a volume. To hear the entirety of the Bowery Ballroom erupt, in unison, at the top of their lungs singing, "I've been magnetic since I was a baby!" was slightly surreal and entirely magical. It sounded like thunder ... glorious, glamorous thunder.

Check out a some photos from their set.
