This show was as good as it was disappointing. The only disappointing part was that we walked in half-way through the Diamond Rings set... Terribly unfortunate because it was only 9:30 and we thought there were still some openers that would be playing. SHOCKED. Mostly because this show was one of my more anticipated shows of the past month.
I've been playing Diamond Rings a lot lately, and you might have seen his stuff on my Video Tuesdays. Love the throwback electro-pop sound. I love the deep voice, the lankiness, the torn tights & eye makeup, and that he uses@stayfierce as his twitter name. He even dons a rainbow unicorn on his keyboard. All unabashed, just like his music. The best part - he's touring with his Dad (who I bought his record from afterward).
I was able to capture a couple tracks and really enjoyed what I heard. This was really just an appetizer, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing him again.
