Who: Boy + Kite
From: Austin, TX
Where: The Silver Dollar
When: Friday, October 18th, 2013

Total Score: 6.6/10

[starreviewmulti id=3 tpl=20]

Style: Indie rock, lots of sustainy guitar riffs with reverb, almost atmospheric but not calm.

Crowd: Getting people out for early slots is tough. Getting people out in another country is tough. The crowd was slim but attentive.

Technicalities: The system sounded good, hard to make out lyrics but such are bar gigs.

Sex appeal/image: Hoodies and tees, standard road attire and indie rock clothes.

Memorable song/moment: The final number was well juiced out, with singer Beth Puorro soloing in front of the mic on the monitor, yelling “you gotta give it your all”, chromaticism, abandon, and finally a feedback/delay noisescape to cap it off.

Comments: You win some and lose some crowd-wise. Road gigs can be rough, and it takes a band with character to give ‘er in a fairly empty bar. These guys did. Sweet.
