Things seem to be warming up again on the music scene; I headed over to Pressed last week to see a Debaser-promoted show featuring Locals trails and tourmates Twist and So Young. Allie was on stage and like her set opening for Michael Swann at Raw Sugar back in July put on a knockout show.
London's So Young play some fuzzy indie rock that's in the same orbit as Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls. A very solid set despite some wonky pedal issues. Here's frontwoman Paterson Hodgson!
Drummer Dave Lunman hits!
Adam Gilkes plays some guitar!
Laurie McColeman handles the low end.
The shouty bit!
The view from the other side of the room.
Twist is fronted by Laura Hermiston of Toronto's BB Guns and produces some more of that grungy and fuzzy pop, with perhaps a bit more of a dreamy feel than So Young.
I'm not sure who's in the band beside Laura, but here's the chap on drums to start with.
Rhythm section action!
Backing vocal action!
Drum pad action!
And so on!
Even more guitar!
A great show for a packed house.
