The Church, Irving Plaza, NYC: This kind of thing needs a little secrecy July 8, 2009

Posted by Anton A in Australian music, Church.

I’ll proably have more to say later, but just have to register that Tantalized was one of the ballsiest, most mind-blowing opening songs I’ve ever seen from any band. The intro, before they even got into the song itself, was like having your head stuck in a piledriver for about 3 minutes. I mean that in a good way.

The Church are known for their dreamy psychedelia, intertwining guitars and excellent sense of melody, but damn, they bring the raw energy to the stage along with all that.

Setlist: Tantalized, Block, Day 5, North South East and West, Happenstance, After Everything, Almost With You, A Month of Sundays, Deadman’s Hand, Pangaea, You Took, Operetta, Under the Milky Way, Reptile
Encore 1: An Interlude, Space Saviour
Encore 2: Hotel Womb

Adam Franklin, formerly of Swervedriver, and his Bolts Of Melody band opened.
