Cloud Nothings @ The Luminary Arts w/1, 2, 3, Volcanoes } 07.16.12

Cloud Nothings @ The Luminary Arts

With Attack On Memory winning over the critics, Cloud Nothings set up shop at The Luminary Arts to knock out the crowd with their killer riffs and assaulting drums.

The night was also my first viewing of local duo Volcanoes. Goodness gracious, even their sound check brimmed with intensity. While their musical stylings weren’t always something I’d be naturally inclined to, they definitely won me over with their energy.

1, 2, 3 has been gracing St. Louis quite frequently and that’s definitely fine by me. Their poppier style made them easily the most mellow act of the evening, but I dug them just as much as I did when I saw them opening for Givers last summer.

The Cleveland quartet capped off the evening with a blistering performance of lo-fi garage rock, led by singer/guitarist Dylan Baldi and the oh so loud drums of Jayson Gerycz. The songs were like a barreling freight train, leaving listeners to either frantically hold on for the ride or move the heck out of the way.

Photo Notes: Unfortunately, lights went down before Cloud Nothings hit the stage, but at least there were some clean lights for the two opening acts. And with the crowd pushed up close to the stage after 1, 2,3 invited everyone to move up, the 14-24mm proved to be much more valuable that evening with limited room to maneuver.
