    Few souls burn as intensely as The VeilsFinn Andrews. When the gothic laced mad hatter took the Bowery Ballroom’s stage, he quickly assumed the agonized face that his theatrical, unrestrained, and discontent music so rightfully demands. The Smiths, Stone Roses, Nick Cave, The Cure, and The Clash…the New Zealander and son of former XTC keyboardist Barry Andrews took welcome live musical cues from a host of acts who knew music was no game, but rather a deeply personal and spiritual phenomenon. While most of the set was pulled from the band’s masterful piece of work, Nux Vomica (Rough Trade), ironically, it was a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “State Trooper” that really personified the barely bottled madness the band threatened , and often did, unleash on the wild room. In other words, The Veils are serious business…though appearing for the encore in star studded, red white and blue pants, while telling a story about how “these colors don’t run” was a welcome let up for a moment. - David Pitz
