I saw SALES with Harmony Tividad and Chaos Chaos at Villian in Williamsburg on October 12th.
I actually arrived late and did not see Chaos Chaos which was too bad because I listened to them before the show and quite enjoyed them. I did see Harmony which was lovely; however, having seen Girlpool before, I wasn’t super into it. Girlpool is super fun (I saw them ~a year ago at Slims), but Harmony solo lacked the same energy.
Villian was super cool. Very hip, warehouse-y, BK vibe. Perhaps in danger of being too hip. It’s a great space for music though. The sound was so good for SALES. They have speakers rigged up all over the room–a very good system and sound guy.
SALES was SO good. I was amazed to see they really play with just two guitars and drums. It’s a very stripped down sound that lets Lauren’s insanely stunning voice shine. They played basically all of their music + more. So very cool. Lauren was a very engaging performer and joked around with us. The crowd was also super into it and after SALES played their last song you could just feel that no one had had enough so they just jammed super hard. So lovely.
