MUSIC: Triangle Forest Shakes Up the Met
Saturday, August 25, 2012
Following Tapestries was Wash Hollow, a side project of Diamond Doves' Brigham Brough on guitar, keys and vocals along with The Denver Boot's Amato Zinno on bass, Chase Leonard on drums and Chris Wood on lead guitar. Brough's band has a really groovy rock sound that makes you bob your head and watch in awe, a great set that had originals such as "ID", "Royal Flush, "Religion" and a cover of Prince's "When You Were Mine". Wash Hollow has been playing quite a few shows in the area so check them out next time you hear about them rocking your favorite venue and check them out.
The Viennagram and their unique combination of punk, cabaret and psychopathic pandemonium filled the room with a whole bunch of crazy rhythms that infected the audience with insanity. Their stage setup looks like something out of The Twilight Zone and makes me think that the ghost of Vincent Price has manifested himself within the band's sound. Led by the eccentric drummer and vocalist A.V. Vienna, the eclectic sextet even had a artist doing a drawing live on stage to go along with the music. With songs like " Straight To The Void", "Chinese Water Tears", "Long Way Back To Paradise", and " Monsters Rule, OK!", The Viennagram brought the crowd to life with their brand of sadistic Tom Waits in a straitjacket style of music and made everyone dance their pants off.
Last up were New Wavers Triangle Forest, consisting of brothers Brendan and Ben Britton, with Brendan on vocals, synths and a unique futuristic guitar, Ben on drums along with Martin Van Etten on a dueling synth that made for a sound that seems like it's straight out of the 80's. The trio's electronic vibrations really got everybody shuffling their feet with songs like "An Empty Love", "Tokyo", "Insatiable", "Rockagon" and "Shut Up, Get Down", really catchy beats and lyrics that made you want to bob your head. Another fantastic night for the Providence music scene at a kickass venue. The Met has live music going on nearly every night of the week, log on to www.themetri.com for everything you need to know.
