This past weekend has been a rather busy weekend as I had covered a fundraiser/charity event for V-Day.org, a charity that is actively working to stop violence against women and girls on Friday night, and a show at Cheap Storage, a loft party space in Bushwick with Total Slacker, Night Manager, Turnip King, Heavens Gate, and an impromptu set by Cool Serbia. So as you can imagine there was a lot of running around, getting home late, trying to upload photos and eventually passing out in front of my Macbook for a few hours before waking up to do it again …
When I came across this in Midtown — I want to say it was on the corner of West 53rd Street and Broadway but my memory is failing me a bit — it made me smile because after all, those New York Giants champs.
Hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, the duo of Glass Vaults came out to perform what wound up to be their second show ever in the States. Full of shimmering guitar chords with guitar lines and vocals fed through delay and reverb, their music had a delicate, ethereal beauty reminiscent of Amnesiac-era Radiohead, Sigur Ros and A Storm in Heaven-era the Verve.
