On November 8, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and co-headliners Death From Above 1979, provided us with a great night of rock and roll that served as a well needed distraction from the stress of the election, as the eventual surprising results trickled in.
Both Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and DFA1979 aren’t touring new albums, but the tour was still plenty welcome. I’ve seen DFA1979 a few times now, but somehow, this was my first time seeing Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. They didn’t disappoint, giving us a confident 16-song set of all the best that they had to offer, with a few comments about the live election results.
It was a strange atmosphere at the show, as there was an unspoken tension felt throughout Terminal 5, as people were there to enjoy a great triple bill also featuring garage rock duo Deap Vally, but people were constantly checking their results to view the results. Even so, all three acts did their job and pulled us away form reality and destroyed our ears, leaving us with one blissful moment before walking out to the uncertain reality that unkindly awaited most of us after the show.
