PHOTOS: glamglare presents: The Sleeping Tongues, Holy Golden, I/O, La Moreno
As much we loved “Cheetos and Champagne”, nothing could prepare us for La Moreno’s live show: in equal parts concert and theatrical performance, Anita Moreno turned The Delancey showroom in some sort of glowing mythical place.
The smart, brilliantly executed rock by five-piece I/O, led by Tyler Hicks, provided a much-needed chill-down afterwards. They demonstrated that if you can play your instruments that well, it works even without vocals.
If La Moreno took us closer to the underworld, bi-coastal duo Holy Golden lifted us closer to the sun again (as much as it is possible in a basement venue). Leslie Schott and Andrew Valenti’s clear-eyed, bright pop and charming performance is a beautiful experience on any given day, but fitted into this showcase like a keystone.
Closing out the night was the return of The Sleeping Tonges. Each time we see the band around singer/songwriter Craig Kepen, they bring more energy to the room. Watch out for their upcoming EP.
