Photos: Knight School, Let's Wrestle, and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

p3130148The Pains of Being Pure at Heart played to a sold-out crowd at the Bell House this past Friday night.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially since these guys were unknown just a few months ago.  They seemed really, really thankful and a bit staggered by their sudden popularity.  As soon as they picked up their instruments and began strumming the first chords, it was clear that they put a lot of time into getting the infectious tone of their album to translate to a live setting.  It sounded good, and I was impressed.  The immediate energy and sound I was initially excited by faded a bit throughout the performance.  Nevertheless, I think that this foursome has real potential to be huge and crossover out of the indie market.  They’re humble and adorable, and the crowd loved them.  One of the best moments of the night was at the very end of the show when bashful keyboardist whispered into Kip Berman’s ear.  He announced to the crowd that Peggy wanted to play “Paul,” and that “What Peggy wants…”  It was the thirteenth song of the night, and the last of a very short but sweet set.  Knight School and Let’s Wrestle are both bands to keep an eye on, especially Londoners, Let’s Wrestle.  Photos below.
