On Monday night, Tamaryn and Frankie Rose shared the stage to celebrate the release of Herein Wild
, Frankie Rose's latest album. Frankie declared it was an album she wrote in a record amount of time - only a month and a half. Filled with sentimentality, Herein Wild
is an album that you can listen to alone in your bedroom or packed closely in a room full of people. After blaring the likes of "Sorrow" and "Into Blue" in my Brooklyn apartment, it was with great when Frankie confessed she's all about Bushwick and presented the Jefferson Street choir who complemented her set perfectly.
Tamaryn took the stage first with white roses spread throughout the stage. She held them tightly while singing into her microphone opening up her set with "The Waves", the title track from her first album. Tamaryn moved on stage smoothly and almost violently at times, a perfect description of her set at the Bowery Ballroom. The audience moved with her, getting lost in the projection screen shining pink and blue hues.
The first thing Frankie Rose did when she took the stage was smile to the crowd. If there is a favorite among my crowd-banterers I think it would be Frankie. Putting on a Mick Jagger impression (or somebody's impression of Mick) is only one of her many talents. Throughout her performance she held her guitar and strummed effortlessly, the chords feeling synchronized to her bandmates' instruments. My favorite of the night had to be the aforementioned "Into Blue", a favorite of mine off Herein Wild
. Everyone swayed in unison as Frankie sang, "Into blue, next to you," and in the middle of the show, she stated, "this is the longest set I've ever played. I always get into trouble," then she took a swig from her tequila bottle. My hero!
