Last Night A Place To Bury Strangers Pics

Like some of the commenters on Eric’s post, I left last night’s show thinking that A Place to Bury Strangers is a very good young band, but that the hype being thrown their way is a bit ridiculous. It’s unfair to pretend that APTBS are heads and shoulders above the rest of the shoegaze-revivalists out there. The lyrics are a bit underwhelming and I was disappointed by how small their wall of sound actually was (I was expecting a larger daisy-chain of pedals on-stage as well). I enjoyed their performance (especially the latter half), I’ll definitely follow them and see them again, but it isn’t right to praise this band as the best thing since Kevin Shields twiddled his first knob. Give them another album and a few more tours and we can revisit the topic however.
In any case, I wasn’t planning to add anything other than images so here are some pics I took at the show (I didn’t come away with any good ones of Holy Fuck so none of their performance).
A few more pics after the jump.
