MUSIC: Divine Fits Kicks Off Tour At The Met

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

 

Divine Fits kicks off its latest tour right here in Rhode Island, at the Met in Pawtucket.

Last night at The Met in Pawtucket, Indie rock supergroup Divine Fits kicked off their tour in support of their debut album under the title A Thing Called Divine Fits. Consisting of Spoon's Britt Daniel, ex-Wolf Parade frontman Dan Boecker, Sam Brown of The New Bomb Turks and Alex Fischel, it definitely was a once in a lifetime experience to see these guys play together.

Way Out

First up was local power-pop indie trio Way Out. A great sound that reminded me of Joy Division, The Hush Now and late 70s Elvis Costello definitely caught my eye, their groovy rhythms and heartfelt lyrics made a uncharacteristic impression on me that was impossible to ignore. Hopefully these guys will play more around Providence and get the following they totally deserve.

Divine Fits

The room filled up like a can of sardines and Divine Fits graced the audience with their amazing presence. Kicking it off with "For Your Heart" and then into "Flagging A Ride", "What Gets You Alone", "Would That Be Nice", "Civilian Stripes", "The Salton Sea", "Lost", "My Love Is Real", a cover of The Wipers' "Doom Town", "Neopolitans", "Like Ice Cream", another cover featuring Tom Petty's "You Got Lucky" and ending a spectacular set with "Baby Get Worse". The mesmerized masses were left wanting more, and Divine Fits delivered. An encore consisting of a cover of The Birthday Party's "Shivers" had the crowd roaring in applause to cap off a dynamic performance. No big deal, just another show at The Met you could never forget.
