MUSIC: Divine Fits Kicks Off Tour At The Met
Wednesday, October 17, 2012
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.
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.
