Crobot and Wilson Bring the Party to New York City Fans
One of the most fun rock tours of the year so far has been Crobot and Wilson’s “Drunk As S---” run. Their stop in New York City’s very intimate Studio at Webster Hall definitely provided a night to remember.
Headlining band Crobot pulled no punches as they began their set with the hard grooves of “The Legend of the Spaceborne Killer.” They also went on to play such other favorites as “Le Mano de Lucifer” and “Skull of Geronimo.” The Pennsylvania four-piece is one of the most funky, groovy and lively acts in rock today. Each member has a style and energy of their own that is nothing short of compelling.
The band also played some brand new songs as they tested the waters with “Serpent Shepherd,” “Welcome to Fat City,” “Hold on for Dear Life” and “Not for Sale.” And by the sounds of it, there should be no fall off after support of the Something Supernatural album subsides. They’re talented, they’re gritty and they’re good ol’ rock and roll. When Crobot comes to town they are not to be missed!
The same could be said for Detroit party band Wilson who performed beforehand. With a brand new album, Right to Rise, to support, they played such hard-hitting new tracks as “All My Friends,” “Windows Down!,” “Crave” and “Give ‘Em Hell.”
At the end of Wilson’s set things really amped up as frontman Chad Nicefield walked offstage only to return with his big marching band like bass drum and then dove off of the stage into the crowd. All of this took place as guitarist Kyle Landry balanced upside down, hanging from a pipe on the ceiling while playing guitar. Do yourself a favor and check Wilson out when they roll through town … with their “windows down.”
Things got sweaty very fast for the talented Texas trio of Mothership as they took the stage earlier in the night for a forceful performance. Local band Chasing Carmen kicked off the evening with a lively set.
