Here’s a small blog post about the Monuments Collapse/Marriages/Deafheaven show last night (photos uploaded in order of the bands).
You can see all of the photos from the show here.
I don’t think a band name has ever so perfectly summed what the band sounds like.
Marriages. Oh Marriages. There is this sense of unity that you feel on stage when these folks are playing that is hard to explain. Everything flowed so seamlessly into itself; it was like drifting in a river of stuff and things. It just makes you feel good to see them live. This band deserves the world.
There isn’t much I can say about deafheaven that hasn’t already been said in the past few months following the release of Sunbather. This was the last night of their tour with Marriages and it brought them right back home to San Francisco. Maybe that had something to do with it. Coming home after a long journey. I assume these guys bring it every night, but I have quite honestly never seen anything like it. A band so willing let the weight fall one person and one person so willing to let the weight fall on the audience. I don’t know what that means, but it didn’t sound that good in my head either. Yeah…
