Show Review

Sleepytime, eh? We don't really see how anyone could sleep through such music as this. The quintet's songs are thunderous, theatric, and almost prog-ish with their varied rhythms and dynamics. Band members stalk the stage, costumed in tunics and occasional splotches of chalky makeup, looking simultaneously enchanting and downright terrifying. The setlist bounces between avant-garde freakouts, heavy metal moments, and experimental passages. Granted, the red-tinted lights are turned down waaay low during this Bowery Ballroom performance, and the nighttime is a common setting for many of Nils Frykdahl's eerie lyrics. But sleepytime? When this band is on stage? We think not.
