Ume at Webster Hall: 8/2/12

Ume (pronounced “ooh-may”) opened for The Toadies and Helmet last night, and I’m glad I arrived early to catch their set.

For a band of only three people, Ume had incredible power — they blasted sound and strength out into the crowd at Webster Hall.

Frontwoman Lauren Larson’s frenetic energy and distorted guitar meant lots of movement — Ume is perfectly suited to playing on a huge stage with ample room to move about.

While some may prefer the raw energy of their live show, I prefer the nuances on their album. The standout tracks on album Phantoms are “Captive,” “Destroyer,” and “Dancing Blind.”

Hospitality at South Street Seaport

I caught Hospitality’s set at 4Knots Music Festival at South Street Seaport.

Their set was interrupted by a fire, and they sadly didn’t play “Eighth Avenue” or “Betty Wang.” The band ended strong, though, with “All Day Today.”

Here are more unusual guitars. Some of them combine two instruments (i.e. the harp guitar and bass/guitar combo), and some are unusually shaped (i.e. the heart guitars and the flower guitar).
