Pedro the Lion at the Bowery

Pedro the Lion braved the Bowery Ballroom on two sold-out nights in NYC. Along with opener Ramora, a loud and abusive one man guitar noise project, and headliner Low, Pedro the Lion was locked tightly with the crowd. They sped through their set, the audience dancing and singing along. The songs stopped only twice for brief Q&A sessions, where David spoke of new guitars, his baby, and how his band drives around in a van and solves mysteries. Guitarist Alan Sparhawk from Low came out for cover song whose name I don’t quite recall, but it was an impressive time. I was only a casual listener of Pedro the Lion over the last few years, but this performance was enough to get me picking up more of their music. They’re on tour until the end of March, so try and catch them if you can.
