Out And About: Warpaint At Webster Hall

    Warpaint has been together for over 10 years, but I only recently started hearing buzz about the all-girl four piece this past spring. I checked out their videos, became a sort-of insta-fan after watching "Disco//Very - Keep It Healthy," and was expecting to see a rad show from girls that looked cool and no bullshit allowed.

    I arrived at Webster Hall and it was unsurprisingly packed. I had to suffer through the second half of Liam Finn's set, which was beyond painful. Seriously...dude was screeching his instruments as if he was a kid that didn't know how to play them, took his shirt off (ugh...not necessary) and donned a sparkly jacket to perform his final two songs, "Helena Bonham Carter" and "Burn Up The Road," which, I will admit, weren't so bad. I think if Liam pursues the high energy, rock infused route of his final two songs, he might have a chance of moving up the music industry ladder. Otherwise, I think he's peaked.

    Anyway, Warpaint was next and I was shoulder-to-shoulder with photographers in the pit waiting for the band to take the stage. After what felt like an insanely long time, the band sauntered on-stage with red cups. The fans were cheering, photographers were clicking away, and Warpaint was just playing. I was expecting more energy from the girls, but they just casually played and really didn't move around that much. Maybe they're just too cool, or perhaps they translate better in a music video format, but I was a bit underwhelmed by the show.

    Aside from a disappointing stage presence, those girls have got a handle on their shit, their fans love them, and they're selling tickets, so in the end, thats all that matters, right? Check out photos below.
