Warpaint touring on their excellent new self-titled album played a low key & fun set at The Observatory this evening. At times it felt like you were watching a group rehearsal rather than a concert. But I think this naivete is part of their charm. And these four women sold out the Observatory so heck I guess they know what they're doing and then some. Anyway I love their new album which is currently in heavy rotation in my cd player. My only complaint was the lighting was atrocious at this show. Magenta and Blue = a FLAT no contrast stage, which makes it harder to see the performers and tougher for the audience to connect with the band. Next time I hope they ramp up their stage presentation a little. Anyway check these gals out when they come to your town before they get REALLY huge. This way you can say you saw them back in the day.
